We have just returned from a fabulous 5-day stay at The Henley - our first holiday since lockdown. We were a little trepidous to be sharing space with strangers but the attention to detail in all aspects of the hotel were exceptional. Care was taken in social distancing in the dining room, the lounge areas and the outdoor deck - all spacious and comfortable with lovely decor. The views from the hotel are a good reason to visit this gem but the food is the reason we will return. Both breakfast and dinner were exceptional - lots of local fish, fillet steak, lamb and chicken were all on the menu and presented and cooked to perfection. Martyn (the chef) and Petra (front of house and everything else!) have created a genuinely unique hotel experience and it was worth the 6-hour journey to get there. Next time we overnight on the way.

Normally somewhere in the med for our holidays but for obvious reasons decided to stay in the U.K. this year. Thank goodness because otherwise we would never have discovered this absolute gem of a small hotel. The lovely greeting from Petra, our room with fantastic views and so well serviced everyday, the gourmet dinner dishes served up by Martyn (accompanied by Petras’ excellent home made rolls!) , the views from the decking and the garden…. I could go on but this should give you the idea that we couldn’t fault the place. If there’s a better place to stay than this for a relaxing holiday in the U.K. we have yet to find it.

The last 18 months has taught us all not to take anything for granted.. a holiday has become something for us all to look forward to as a safe haven from the on-going worries! And that’s just what we’ve experienced for 7 nights at the Henley! This was our 3rd visit and again we weren’t disappointed.. from the warm welcome with tea and cake from Petra to Martyn’s exquisite food to the happy tail wagging welcome from Kasper the labrador to the comfortable spacious room and the wonderful view from the beautiful decking .. the Henley has it all! The hotel is also super dog friendly as our cavapoo can tell you!! We heartily recommend this wonderful hidden gem .. but would also like to keep it just for us!! Until the next time..

My wife and I had our first post lockdown break at The Henley Hotel last week; what a gem! Petra's warm welcome started things well and it only got better; the room had a spectacular view across the estuary towards Bantham, then dinner was cooked by Martyn and was thoroughly delicious. This married couple work as a great team to deliver a relaxing and delightful small hotel experience. Petra is on hand to make sure your every need is sorted and Martyn cooks with great, fresh, local produce to produce excellent meals (breakfast is fantastic and dinner is always a delight). He's particularly adept at cooking fish well, if crab tian or sea bream appear on the menu, grab it! The menu and wine list are both relatively short, but there's not a dud on either! The only challenge is walking the beautiful coastal paths enough to work off breakfast and make room for dinner. The Henley Hotel cannot be recommended highly enough. We'll be returning!

This hotel was recommended to us as we wanted to get away, somewhere not too far,(we live in West Dorset), during this Pandemic. It ticked every box. Spotless rooms, magnificent views, exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were amazing, (especially my porridge with a shot of Amaretto to start my day!) Sitting out on their terrace after a day of walking, with a pot of tea and slices of lemon cake, watching the sea and the paddle boarders, was a real tonic. The evening meal that Martin cooked was top class. This is a place we would not hesitate to recommend.
