Just returned from a very disappointing weeks holiday in the Headland Hotel. On arrival there we were allocated room 120 and found this was a "garden room", in the basement in middle of a building site, down two flights of stairs with no view or lift service. Despite our request for a sea view with a bath! We returned to...

A nice room, a lovely location and excellent food. The staff were very friendly and hard working. The hotel is in a quiet location close to the beach. Will definitely be returning for another visit as there are some nice walks nearby.

My wife and I visited for five days. The room and facilities were excellent. The six course dinners every evening were fabulous. The staff were very friendly and obliging. The views from the hotel were very nice indeed. Overall this hotel deserves a higher star rating than what it has.
