Stayed for a night for one of their Christmas party nights & thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a beautiful bedroom with great service, the meal was Smorgasbord & Carvery which was excellent. The staff were very good especially the restaurant manager Aiden. We really enjoyed the casino & the disco & will go again.

Great value stay we booked on a winter warmer offer which included dinner. Our room was of a very high standard and the mattress was so comfy. Booked direct with the hotel we were amazed because the deal we got was dinner included for the same price as b&b on the late availability sites. Food was out of this world...

The food was very nice and the service was excellent. The swimming pool although you have to go down a few steps is...

On arrival asked for full cost of B&B for 2 nights which we found strange usually one pays full cost of meals, drinks and accommodation at end of stay. Room was OK But not worth £250 per night Bed maybe 5 foot. Views spectacular. Same menu for both nights full breakfast menu was unavailable on both mornings. An enjoyable stay...

A great hotel set in an amazing location, we absolutely loved it! From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to help us, the receptionist Lesley was very friendly and offered help with our luggage. The other staff were all good too, especially Aiden the restaurant manager. We booked on one of their winter warmer offers which included...

Just returned from a weekend break and although the weather was not the best especially at night, the food was fabulous, the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Even with the storms the views were spectacular, being able to eat breakfast whilst watching the seas and the amazing views was very relaxing. The swimming pool, with steam room, sauna...

Just returned from Sandy Cove. This is my favourite time of the year, the sea changes so much throughout the day and with the woods surrounding the Hotel, the colours of the trees are amazing. Our room was spacious and clean. Food was excellent with friendly and efficient service. The swimming pool and facilities were wonderful especially the relaxation loungers....
