The staff were exceptionally pleasant on arrival and throughout our mid week break. Our group of 40 guests enjoyed a very pleasant stay in comfortable surroundings. The food and restaurant was basic and more than adequate in quality and variety. We all throughly enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for a lovely stay. You responded quickly to our faulty noisy extractor fan and found us a new room, and you very sweetly made my elderly mum a lovely birthday breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed there for a night. Warm room with the perfect view to see the sunrise. Loved the location and the staff were very friendly. Short distance from beachy head, which has beautiful view from the cliff. Definitely would recommend! We will be back.
