Very comfortable, clean hotel, extremely friendly and helpful staff, couldn't do enough for you. Dinner and breakfast were excellent, the fillet steak was the best I've had for a long time. Would definitely go back!

This is an excellent family run hotel with spa facilities in a beautiful setting. We had a wonderful weekend there, enjoying the sauna and the salt water swimming pool, having manicures, massages and beauty treatments, while outside the weather was cold, wet and very windy!! The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is delicious and beautifully presented. Worth getting...

Stayed here for a night in two separate rooms. Both of the rooms we had, were spotlessly clean + bright and spacious. The staff, from the receptionist to bar-man, were all unfailingly friendly and helpful. Generally, we had a great time during our stay, so we ll definitely visit again !

We enjoyed a night away here celebrating my 40th birthday. We were able to check in slightly early which was very helpful and as our room was having a little maintenance we were moved swiftly to the Up Above room. Both rooms were lovely, Up Above had a great sea view & watching the sun set was wonderful. The bathroom...

I had a 3 night break here (on my own) and it was glorious!

We stayed for 2 nights in early April with our 3 kids (8-12 years old) and had a really great break at the hotel. The weather was excellent which certainly helped as the location is perfect for exploring the coastal path or the stunning little cove just down the hill. The facilities at the hotel were also excellent with a...
