Stayed for a couple of nights recently. Warm friendly reception, room overlooking the sea ( what a wonderful view). Room had recently been re decorated to a very good standard. Fantastic lounge down stairs with lovely views.

Reception staff happy, helpful and very chatty. Made you feel at home. Rooms very well decorated, comfortable and spacious. Parking a little tight...

This review has taken a few weeks to write as we are still absorbing the experience! We booked the Christmas package (23rd- 27th December) and were not disappointed. The hotel had a calm buzz as we arrived and were greeted by cheerful and helpful front desk team who seemed to be as excited as we were - despite the fact...

This is a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff, a wonderful position and is one of my most favourite places... It is not cheap but it's represents excellent value for money. I can think of few places that are more relaxing. We went for a 3 day taste of the bay and tagged on an extra night. We have 2 dogs...
