“Not so good”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

We arrived at what seemed a fantastic hotel surrounded by breathtaking scenery.We made our way into the reception and after ringing the bell on two occasions was greeted by the receptionist.We were shown to our room which seemed to take an eternity to arrive and after further investigation was an awful 1970s extention built onto the main house.The sea view from the room was magnificant but spoilt by the green mould on the balcony railings and the cheap white garden chairs.There was damp patches on the wall above the bed and someone had tried to hide this by applying numerous coverings of wallpaper.The carpet had food stains on and there was two very tired looking tub chairs which were blue in colour with white stains on.The television was tiny and had a sticker on saying MOVE@YOUR OWN RISK.The shower was a joke and it was a push on the taps type and looked about 30 years old.The brochures you normally get in hotels advertising places to visit were there to look at but were dated from 2006.I think that with a little investment and imagination this could really be a fantastic hotel as it is set in very picturesque area.

On entering this hotel, you will be suprised to find you are not in a nursing home as the lounge area is an empty mass of old people chairs pushed against the walls, just waiting for saggy bottoms! There is an awful smell as though the old people just left. It is quite unacceptable to open a hotel of this standard and expect people to stay there. We could only stay one night, the smell was so bad. It would cost a fortune to renovate a hotel of this size. It is in a beautiful position and in it's day would have been a beautiful hotel but it is way past it's sell by date. If it were mine, I would knock down the wing at the back and concentrate on the attractive front part of the hotel and have a smaller but much improved number of rooms to attract people would appreciate a home away from home.

We were the only guests and the hotel was very cold and unwelcoming. The shower in our room was a ruber hose attatchment to the bath taps. Our main complaint was the price of the food we paid £22 for 2 courses which consisted of a bit of bought pate and white toast and the main course was a frozen steak pie with frozen veg and chips. We only saw 1 member of staff who was quite pleasant but there was absolutely no atmosphere to the place. we did not stay for breakfast which would have cost us £10 each.

Good value for money, clean and comfortable. Service was excellent and friendly welcome. Location brilliant for coastal walking. However it was not modern and could do with a bit of redecorating and upgrading.

we had a lovely stay in this hotel, basically you are left alone to relax and the rooms are clean despite what brummy lad said in another review as i come from brum and we dont all moan about nothing, the hotel has a very warm and homley feel, and the staff are very friendly, and the food is very nice, you forget you are in a hotel and feel very much at home. mazza

my wife and i loved every minute in this hotel. the staff were friendly and welcoming. the rooms were well thought out and accommadating.every detail was thouroughly well planned by the staff and we were made to feel special. the food was to die for it was all locally produced and beautifully cooked to perfection.
having an evening meal in this hotel was a relaxed unrushed social event and made even more special by the attentive staff.
the main course of lamb was out of this world and the morning meal was a welcome st art to a lovely days sightseeing...we will with out a doubt visit this hotel again i recommend anyone who wishes to relax and unwind to do so..

A friendly family who run it. The restaurant staff are friendly too. . The new owners have added toiletries, decent biscuits and wireless internet which is a start. They have plenty of parking and a lovely garden. It is a massive undetaking taking on a place like this and one has to wish them all the luck in the world. The hotel needs a refurb. though. But they do have a well stocked bar.
There's a new Indian restaurant in the town which is excellent - can't remember what it is called but there's only one. Even the staff in the Spar are really friendly. The local beach is not far to walk although if you are not so good on your feet you might want to take the car to get down the last slope! But that's nothing to do with the hotel. Nice cafe on the beach too.

  • Liked — car park, garden and bar
  • Disliked — quality of decor and furnishings
