The view from the hotel is fantastic.We had a lovely sea facing room which was very nice--it was a little bit of a shame that for such a nice room the shower was not very powerful and the bathroom water was only luke warm. The staff are very friendly indeed and nothing is too much trouble. I would say that...

Hotel is great for families and couples alike in a great position, with excellent views and amazing sunsets. The beach is just right for a good walk, although the climb up the path on return to the hotel is very steep. Good friendly service.

Really enjoyed ourselves, family feel with attentive staff and just a little grandure (North Devon style). Good facilities that we used: tennis, golf putting, pool, table tennisand board games. Would happily go again.

We took a winter bargain break. Really couldn't fault the room, staff, service, food or facilities. My only suggestion would be that some of the gym equipment needs attention. However we are completely happy and we will be back.

A return visit, the first being 25 years ago and it never disappoints..,the rooms with views are stunning. The atmosphere throughout the hotel is happy and friendly. A choice of restaurant now caters for all requirements. The staff are so professional, smart and efficient. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer

This hotel is full of Ambience and I felt as though I was in an Agatha Christie film . (No one was murdered I must point out , but the place did have a feel nostalgia and of stepping in to the 1930s ) The winning formula of this hotel is the staff - they are polite, welcoming and cant...

Thank you for your four star review, we really do appreciate all the feedback we receive from guests and this will all be shared with the whole team. I'm sure you can appreciate with a building that is over 90 years old we have a constant program of maintenance and repairs with the occasional emergency repair required. - Anthony Kingdon

My wife and I stayed here last weekend to selebrate Xmas and New year as she was not well over that week. We had a cosy room and it was very comfy. The staff were very nice and polite. Service and food was excellent very worth the money. Can't wait to go back for another weekend.
