What a wonderful spot this hotel is situated in, superb sea views, pathway to its own beach and everything one could wish for. The architectural style is East Coast USA clapboard in soft pastel colours, the interior just so very English. Comfort is the hotels byword here with hearty fires in Winter (and early spring!). The rooms are all very well appointed and very comfortable. Room and bathroom sizes are generous, with attention to detail such as the provision of bathrobes. Drinks at the small bar are varied; several beers, both local and big name brands available and it is a nice touch to see successful establishments supporting good quality local beers and ciders. I also noticed and took advantage of a good selection of scotch and gin.
Service is understated, yet attentive and guests are not left unattended for long.
The food is what sets this hotel apart from its competition. Stunningly dishes wonderfully twinned with a surprisingly wide selection of wine ensure guests have no avenue for disappointment. The menu is small, yet very varied including a generous proportion of local ingredients on offer and served with great visual appeal. Pre-dinner drinks are accompanied by tantalising tasters making the menu choices every more difficult.
Altogether a wonderful relaxing experience metres from the sea!
