We had a lovely weekend here for my birthday.The rooms are lovely and the hotel is lovely and clean. We thought all the staff were lovely apart from the receptionist who was very blunt and miserable which was a bit off putting. A smile and pleasantries doesn't cost anything and being front of house should be her priority.A shame because that's my only criticism we loved it here.

Stunning view to wake up to lovely food and a lovely decked area outside. And a short walk to another hotel which was lovely for a stroll and have a tipple there!

Would definitely return one day highly recommend.We actually got engaged here so fond memories.

We went to Flat rock last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary we live locally, and have been here before. The bar area as we entered looked very sad and unclean, the bar itself needed a wipe down it was full of glass marks and spilt beer, when we sat down in the bar area to look at the menu the table was dirty and full of glass marks this had now been wiped down , infact all the tables were the same . The settee I sat on was dirty and had old food stuck between the cushions. I was going to take frien
ds there next week but wont now. The staff are young so maybe some guidance would not go amiss. Diolch

We are, of course, glad that you have enjoyed previous visits, although it's a shame that you did not feel compelled to leave a review after any of these occasions.

Lovely hotel, and dog friendly, which is what we were Looking for in order to include our dog in our honeymoon. Breakfast was just ok, poached eggs overdone and sausages bland but very nice croissants and bacon. They have a fairly large bar/restaurant that does not allow dogs, which we thought could have a small dog friendly area as when we visited the weather was not good enough to be able to sit outside. To be fair the manager took pity on us and let us sit in a secluded corner, but for a supposedly dog friendly hotel I would expect a bit more dog 'friendliness'. Staff were really lovely and helpful however and the evening meals first rate! This is just constructive from a dog lover and breakfast lover point of view.

This hotel is excellent and well worth a stay for anyone looking in this area. The rooms are brilliant very high standard, especially if you are lucky to get a sea view. The staff are excellent, Jo and her team run a tight ship to ensure all the customers have the most pleasant stay possible, nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is outstanding and they cater for anyone, and they will go out of their way to accommodate. Thank you all for making my special birthday memorable.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must
