Never stayed in as a hotel as live fairly close, we do take guests to eat there or have a drink mainly because of the Berry Head's position overlooking the bay. It has a great outside terrace and the view is fantastic, we have even sat out on the terrace for drinks on Christmas Day enjoying a walk and fresh air away from the Christmas ritual of TV and food ! Our dining experiences have been mixed over the past 20 years or so. We last went to dine in the evening for a family event in late June 2012, service was appalling, customer skills in bar dining area non-existent, food mediocre. Obviously staff and the menu has changed more than once over a long time but this year is the worse we have known it for the food side. We do go quite often for a drink especially after walking in the Berry Head Country park which is just above the hotel, but even having a pot of tea or coffee there is no longer as nice as even a year or two back. I ordered sandwiches recently and what was served was not what I would expect from this establishment. The hotel has a prime position in the bay, we will continue to use it for drinks in the bar or on the terrace.
