A friendly but professional hotel. The staff were really attentive and all was as described in literature. We ate in the Bistro and were allocated a window table as it was a birthday celebration.. The food was of a high standard and served promptly. With its position they cannot go wrong. However there were a few "end of season" maintenance...

First time at this hotel and 40 years since being in Woolacombe. It was an absolute delight with great service, food and accommodation. Walking the coastal path was also a big plus, great base for that. Highly recommended.

We stayed in room 2 and were very disappointed with it. Small and not as nice as expected from the pictures on the website. This room is not pictured on the website. Nicely decorated but the paper coming off the ceiling. The shower head attached to the taps was broken and sprayed water everywhere it wasn't meant to go. Disgusting...
