Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel. The room looked over the canal and the included breakfast and parking were very welcome. The staff were extremely friendly and always happy to share information about Bude. The food is great and there are several other eating places nearby.

We stayed for 3 nights in a 'suite' overlooking the lock. Very nice room and view of the beach. Staff were lovely, everyone we spoke to was friendly and helpful. I can't remember names but Lin and Wayne were very pleasant. On our last night we ate in the adjacent pub owned by the same family. Great atmosphere and decent food. Well done!

Wow… we visited today and had a Sunday roast …. Selection of meats and once you’re served the plate has your meat, roasted veg and potatoes and then a pile of green vegetables, root vegetable mash and cauliflower cheese is served to help yoursel ! The meals were around £15 - £16 for mains…. Lovely staff and service was excellent. We arrived a little early so we had a drink and was took through to the library. Location is beautiful, sits right on the canal and close to Summerleaze beach. Definitely will visit again. Thank you 😊

Had an excellent 3 night stay in room 4, which had a beautiful bathroom and large balcony overlooking the canal. This was a dog friendly room and we had our dog Gina with us. There were 2 stainless steel bowls, dog bed and treats supplied too. The staff without exception were super friendly and very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent, the best scrambled eggs I have ever had in a hotel. The hotel was very busy with functions but this didn't affect the quality of our stay as the staff are so efficient and there was plenty of staff. The hotel has lovely resident only areas and a beautiful garden. I could go on and on, to sum up an excellent stay.

Met here with friends for lunch. Location is beautiful. Décor is very relaxing & comfortable & the staff very welcoming from the moment you walk through the door. At the time of our visit scaffolding covered the front but if the place is to be maintained that is unavoidable. Our meal was outstanding in every respect (apart from the rice pudding which through over dressing was almost unrecognisable) But I speak as a traditionalist & no doubt others would have found it very good depending on your taste. Our waitress Sally was exceptional in her level of service & made our dining experience so enjoyable. We would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a really good place to dine with friends.

Just had a wonderful weekend at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and reasonably priced. The hotel itself is perfectly situated a few minutes walk from the beach and canal. The rooms were immaculate and very well appointed with little extras such as hairdrier, bath mat and plugs for chargers right by the bed. The whole place was beautifully clean and we could park right out the front. Can’t believe it’s only a 3 star!! Will definitely be returning later this year.
