Excellent position on hillside overlooking a huge, long beach giving marvelous sea views. The massive sand dunes give an almost moonscape appearance that would be ideal for some exploration. Room was large, as was bed and nicely appointed. Windows were easily opened to ensure fresh air, though the pounding surf was loud enough to disturb sometimes. Bathroom had excellent, easily operated, shower in bath plus good toilet and large handbasin. Heated towel rail ensured the large and fluffy towels were always ready for use. The indoor Pool was well heated and clean with an excellent sauna. The therapy suite offers a variety of choices to relax. Food was good with a reasonable variety of choice at Dinner and a massive variety at the buffet Breakfast. Staff in all the food and bar areas are friendly and helpful to the best degree, ask and they'll accommodate. The hotel seems to have a fair number of young children as guests, some of whom are not well controlled by their parents, so holidays times may pose questions. An attempt to maintain a dress code at Dinner is not enforced in any way and leads to some strange attire on view! Good position for touring the North Devon coast. Overall a pleasant place to stay.
