The facilities for teenagers and children are very good - squash, badmington, tennis, games room, swimming pool. The food very good and a flexible attitude towards menus for children dining with parents. The staff were without fail friendly and polite. The setting is beautiful being a short walk from the beach and a couple of miles along the coast path is Hope Cove.
The requirement for men to wear jackets at dinner is dated and we heard a number of complaints about it from young and old. They failed to inform us in advance and we were required to borrow a hotel jacket.
This hotel is pricey but there are no extras for the use of facilities save for the spa treatments.
The cleaning up after a young child had been ill in the dining room could and should have been swifter and more thorough given it was in the middle of the breakfast period.
We would go again. There were a number of large family gatherings/celebrations and it seems an ideal place for these as it does have everything from organised activities for very young children, sporting activities, golf course and comfortable sitting room with fire for just relaxing. The hotel own the pub next door.
