Stayed here when I was on a training course nearby. Lovely staff, great dinner and breakfast. Room was comfy couldn't really ask for much more. Restaurant staff were spot on and very efficient. Nice, clean well run hotel.

This is our second visit to the hotel in 2 years. Both times we stayed in one of the cottages, which we really loved. Dogs thought it was great too. Very well-equipped for self-catering (half-board also available I think) and nicely appointed too. On our previous visit (2014) we did have to stay one night in the hotel and this...

Fantastic location near the beach with a couple of hostelries close by. But the real catch is the quality; food, staff, rooms. It was early Autumn and we were made maga welcome but bet it is great all year. It seems to be not only a hotel, but a small community within the local community. We loved it and will...

As a previous reviewer has stated, Dune cottage is extremely well equipped and with the hotel offering 'room service' you can get the best of both worlds, self catering or hotel meals in your cottage. It was a lovely warm place to return to following a bracing walk along the coast. We hope to return.

This is an excellent hotel found by chance; all the management and staff have one objective ie. the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. The hotel decor, service, food,room service,and all facilities made for an extremely pleasant stay. The number of ' repeat bookings' was a good sign and recommendation.
