“Better every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

We've eaten here many times but never written a review before. We love this restaurant, it has amazing sea views. The food is always first-class and there is a Smorgasbord on a Saturday which has an amazing choice. Staff are very friendly.

The hotel reports suggest the very best in cuisine and it did not lie. We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and each day we enjoyed the very best of food and service. Top class many thanks

“Could be so much better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

This hotel has one very strong quality - the location. The view overlooking Combe Martin is stunning particularly from the outside tables.
Sadly, the hotel from many aspects looks tired and dated. There was a bucket in the restaurant collecting dripping water from a leak above, and the toilets left a lot to be desired.
There were not too many staff in attendance, certainly nobody in reception at midday.
Foodwise - minuscule portions and far from perfect but acceptable. Quite expensive for what it was. Regrettably, the whole experience could have been much improved.
