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.

Lovely little hotel , nice location. Free on street parking outside . We stayed one night, and had dinner in the evening which was really good. The breakfast was very nice aswell. Room was pleasant, comfy bed, large bathroom, a fridge and safe in your...room along with dressing gowns. The hotel is clean. Small points in the room, there was signs of a water leak / damp on one of the walls, and the bathroom floor grout was a little worse for wear, that being said it didn’t effect our stay in the slightest. Would certainly Recommend this hotel for a night awayMore

I can not fault the hotel on service just wished we were able to have been able to book a sea view . I managed to cut my finger and the receptionist dealt with this for me . Thanks once again from John & TinaMore

Why do you go to a restaurant? I go to a restaurant because I like to be fed and leave not hungry. Unfortunately if you buy Mussels as a main dish there you will most definitely be hungry by the time you leave. One single...handful of mussels you’ll get. The manager is someone who thinks they know it all if you have a complaint about your food also. I’ve been there before and the burger is to absolutely die for so go there for the burger!More

Nice cocktails. Lovely staff My chicken saltimbocca was nice but lacked any sage taste and the sauce that came with it was plain white and bland. A touch of tarragon would have been nice in the sauce. Cheeseboard was lovely but too much! Overall a...lovely placeMore

I booked a room for 2 nights through booking.com and I had mentioned we are 2 adults and a child. I specifically selected a large double bed room instead of the normal double bed room, as that is what we do for the 3 of...us ever since my son was born. I received a confirmation from the hotel saying 2 Adults and 0 Child. I went back to correct them that our 4 year old son will be there too. They amended the booking to add an 'extra bed' for my 4 year old and said I have to pay £100 for the extra bed, when I hadn't even requested for one (a large double bed was enough for us). They then responded saying that I have to pay £100 for the child even if I dont want an extra bed. I can understand them charging extra for the child's breakfast, if that is what was concerning them. But charging £100 for a 4 year old, I thought was ridiculous!!! I cancelled the booking now. A total rip-off! Please take note of this if you are booking a room with kids to stay with you. Attaching screenshot of my conversation with the hotel. ThanksMore

The food was presented well and tasted great. How ever the service was poor. Had to weight over 20 mins after we had finished our main before the plates were cleared away and then another eternity before we could order a dessert !!! Real shame.

Lovely lunch on the terrace in the sunshine .We hadn’t booked but arrived early and got a wonderful table looking out over the sea and Bude. Catch of the day was Bream and it was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back .

We stayed here for 2 nights on our recent holiday on Cornwall. We had a great stay in a lovely room overlooking the beach and bay with balcony and outdoor seating. The room itself was spacious and very comfortable with additional indoor seating . The...bathroom had huge freestanding bath and large walk in shower. Great tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary bottles of water. The staff were all amazing so friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed two great breakfasts qnd dinners there. Its in a great location and we will definitely go back.More

We recently spent two lovely nights at The Beach at Bude. From my first encounter with Bridget, when I called to make the booking, I just knew this was what we were looking for ! Bridget was charming and professional as she shared the attributes...of the various rooms available. We settled on one with a beach view and it was definitely worth it. Upon entering the room we knew we had found a special place. The room was modern, immaculate and decorated in soft relaxing colors. There was a Juliette balcony , so we could open the doors and enjoy the ocean breeze with our glass of wine. The staff were all warm and friendly. Jayne at the reception desk, would always cheerily welcome us back when we returned from the beach. We had dinner both nights in the hotel restaurant. The food and service were excellent. It was crowded with locals and guests, so we were glad we had made reservations when booking. The gentleman tending to guests at breakfast went out of his way to make sure everyone was pleased. Unfortunately I do not remember his name (Mike?). When I heard a guest ask for an item not offered, I heard him reply “ I’ll have it for you tomorrow” ! Couldn’t have asked for more from our two day escape.More

We have enjoyed, what can only be described as, an excellent lunch today. We live in Devon and regularly pop over to Bude and have passed here a number of times but have never been in. But on a glorious New Year Bank Holiday Monday...it seemed rude not to take advantage of the last couple of seats on the outside terrace with far reaching views of the Atlantic. Jackie was our main waitress and she was attentive, friendly and efficient. We opted for the “Two courses for £18”, picking a main each but sharing a starter and pud to take full advantage. The food was sublime, hot and plentiful. I always take it as a good sign when cloths are needed to bring out hot plates. Nothing irks me more than hot food served on cold plates. The terrace was full of diners and people having drinks but we didn’t have to wait any longer than would be normal when it’s so busy (and it was 1.15pm when we arrived). In fact it was a pleasure to sit in the sunshine and not feel rushed. We may have walked by many times but will definitely visit again as long as it’s warm enough to sit outside as dogs aren’t welcome inside. That aside, we would both thoroughly recommend eating here. One of the best meals out we’ve had in a very long time and excellent value for money. We ate Tempura Prawns and chilli dip (shared) Fish and chips / Chicken Saltimbocca Passion Fruit and Mango Cheesecake 1.5 pints coke/1.5 pint drought cider Total £50.60 plus tip Couldn’t fault it!More

We unfortunately had to reschedule our trip due to illness and the hotel couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. The rooms were beautiful and felt so homely. Staff were lovely. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and both were delicious. We also...had drinks in the bar. Cocktails were great! There was live music too which was a lovely surprise. Really hope to return one day. And have told friends and family about our stay already!More
