Stayed at the hotel for three nights on a half board basis. Room was large, very clean and comfortable bed. The breakfast and evening meal were all excellent. Good choice of food cooked beautifully. We hope to return next year.

Our offer included the restricted table d'hote dinner menu, which we... More

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... More

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... More

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.
