Went here for a relaxing weekend away with my partner and baby. The hotel was beautiful and staff were always friendly. Breakfast was amazing, lots of variety to choose from. The only downfall I would say is we went for lunch in the restaurant and my partner had the chefs special which was crab linguine. Unfortunately the crab wasn't fresh... More

We stayed for 2 nights with a groupon discount voucher. Had an excellent stay, staff were all very friendly, food was good and hotel was well looked after and nicely decorated. Our room was very small but had everything we needed for a short stay; but any longer than 2 days we would have struggled with storage. There was not... More

The hotel is located directly opposite Babbacombe Downs and is an easy walk to Babbacombe and Oddicombe beach. There are quite a number of restaurants and the views from the rooftop terrace were spectacular. We stayed in the Oddicombe Suite, with our two teenage sons for three nights. The twin room is small but adequate but the main room and... More

We visited here last week for afternoon tea and it was lovely. Very attentive staff and nice setting with walks along the cliff opposite. A good selection of sweet and savoury treats. I would definitely visit again, the menu also looked good and had various fish mains which all sounded nice. We will be trying then next time!

We are currently staying.. staff members very lovely. The room 3 is very small with a 20month baby.. Other rooms are lovely but they were fully booked to be moved. Downstairs breakfast is nice. Situated in a lovely area.
