Room was exceptionally clean and spacious. Very comfortable. Bathroom spacious and immaculate. Breakfast was efficiently delivered even though they were full and busy. Quality was high and well cooked. Good choice. Owners friendly and obviously take great pride in delivering a quality product at this hotel. Thank you.

Just returned from another visit to the Winter Dene which has many spacious bedrooms all maintained to a very high standard. You are always made so welcome from this family run hotel. A great selection is provided at breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet location and only a short walk from the town. I will be visiting again soon.

The Winter Dene is a grand old house that has been beautifully renovated and decorated with character. It is well located, 10-15 minutes from the town centre and within easy reach of the beach. The spacious, comfortable and airy room was on the 2nd floor, under the eaves, which added to the charm. I enjoyed waking every morning to the... More
