Booked a weekend for my girlfriend an I in late December, as well as being quite reasonably priced the whole experience was wonderful. Friendly staff, excellent rooms with really comfortable beds. Made use of the restaurant in the evening which is also a good recommendation. Thanks all, will look to see you again.

Really loved this hotel, great location, contemporary decor, really great staff who couldn't be more friendly, nice or helpful. We didn't use the spa facilities or swimming pool but did have a look and they were lovely. The quality of the food in the restaurants was outstanding for both breakfast and dinner. It's next door to Jamie Oliver's fifteen which...

Stayed for a 3-day "taste of the bay" package deal and I can honestly say I have never had a more pleasant short break stay anywhere. Food was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful and the standard of the hotel was superb. I will definitely be going back!

This is a lovely hotel, great views with considerate and welcoming staff. However from our room we could hear every passing conversation, footstep, closing of doors as well as the bass throb from the restaurant below up til midnight. When happily sozzled guests rolled back to their rooms we had the benefit of hearing their full glory in the wee...

From first arrival and being greeted at reception to breakfast on our last day everyone we spoke to was charming and friendly. We felt so comfortable during the whole stay and that's the main reason we will be recommending you to everyone who will listen. The room below the living space with the big windows was incredible. We spent a...

This is an older hotel that is in the process of complete refurbishment to bring it into line with newer establishments and what a great job they're doing. My wife & I were having a weekend here to celebrate a wedding anniversary so I'd pre-booked massages for us both on the Sunday morning, I booked the bed, breakfast and dinner...

We had a drink in the bar after a long walk on the beach. The amazing views were a great setting for a early evening drink. The bar was busy, family and dog friendly. Although we weren't staying in the hotel, pool, and menus looked inviting. Friends we were with, have stayed and said it was very nice.

Although we have stayed before this was special as it was our 10th wedding anniversary and we left the kids at home. At the reservations stage I had been disappointed that some of the better rooms were unavailable due to refurbishment. However, on arrival, we were congratulated on our anniversary and offered a complimentary upgrade to room 21 which must...
