We enjoyed a short break at this hotel after Easter. You have the choice to book the children in for their own tea at 5 or pay for them to eat in the restaurant in the evening with you.
The dinner is quite formal but children are welcomed. The menu is varied with about 4 choices of starter things like chicken terrine, gravadlax, pate,goats cheese etc. Then there is an intermediate course of soup or sorbet. Again there are 4 or 5 choices of main such as lamb shanks,sea bass, pork tenderloin, pumpkin risotto etc. There seemed to be a reasonable choice for vegetarians but I'm a meat eater myself. Sometimes our children struggled to choose something to their taste but the staff were very helpful in suggesting alternatives or cooking something plainer. Breakfast was buffet style and very good.
The room we had was lovely with a balcony and seaview. We could literally sit up in bed witha great view of the sea. The hotel had good facilities. We swam in the indoor pool which was fine. There is a spa but we didn't use it this time. There is a games room and you can hire various sports equipment such as golf and tennis for a refundable deposit. In the grounds there is a good adventure playground and a lovely lawn with sun loungers.
After dinner there was usually some form of entertainment. One evening there was a casino and the children were allowed to join in as it was fairly quiet. At about 6pm there is chldrens entertainment too.
Fortunately for us the sun shone the whole time and we were able to spend our days on the beach which was clean and uncrowded at this tme of year.
Overall a very pleasant stay and we would definitely return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. ... more less
