Reviewed 20 January 2017

On arrival we were greeted by a lady in latex with a whip (the owner, nonetheless) and it didn't take long afterwards to discover that our reservation did not exist, despite only being confirmed two days before.

The restaurant was empty, and the chef not in attendance, but it was ok, apparently, as he only lives nearby. Ten minutes later and we are informed that the chef was in his underpants getting changed, great. The excitement of the chef's arrival didn't transpire into the meal, which wasn't great. Two sets of onion rings were left raw and the accompanying sauce for one dish didn't arrive until half of it had been eaten. Nothing else warrants a comment.

Whilst trying to settle our nerves with a pre-dinner drink, a member of our party almost put their hand on the bar next to what we thought was an ornamental, foot long lizard. It was actually a real lizard, which is clearly allowed to roam free.

What more can I say, other than we won't be visiting again. The town is crying out for a decent hotel, but this isn't it.

We have visited the bay hotel 3 times now for Sunday lunch. Every time has been brilliant but today was another level. The meat was cook to perfection, the vegetables are so fresh and cooked just right. Other things apart from roast on the menu which look equally as tempting. Brilliant value for money.
All the staff make you feel so welcome and my little boy loves to visit Oberon the bearded dragon.
Well worth a visit.

Food and service were ok, nothing to rave about but was ok.
Food slightly off the mark. I had goats cheese and beetroot tartlets with new potatoes and salad. Very tasty but really beetroot in vinegar in the tartlets ??
Raspberry brulee for both me and the hubby. Not sure they were the same pudding ? Mine was more raspberry and strawberry mixed with cream and burnt suger sprinkled on top ? Not bad to eat but not quite as expected.
The person who served us was chatty and pleasant.
Probably would not make the effort to return here.

We had read mixed reviews for this hotel but were pleasantly surprised with our room. It was a little tired but was otherwise bright, airy and clean, with a high ceiling that made a very humid night much more bearable. The staff were all courteous, helpful and hardworking.

It is quirky, so you'll either love it or hate it. We loved it.
