Lovely location, but not what I expected, the car park was small, but we were always able to park in it.
As you approach the front door there is a flat/room to the right....the curtains were always closed..looked like staff accommodation, but looked dreary...
The main lounge and dining room were excellent.....comfortable chairs...just a few dog hairs here and there...but there were a few dogs staying.
Our room size was adequate, but the bathroom was not to my liking...so small, the toilet roll was above your head,it was difficult to maintain a continuous temperature on the shower which hung off the wall,the shower was actually coming apart and the taps moved as you tried to switch them on, and the shower curtain stuck to you while you wee trying to negotiate the rest.The television was so high on the wall and so small that it might as well not have been in there.
Breakfast was good,served very well and you were not rushed.
We didn't eat in the evening as other guests had warned us off as it was expensive and not brilliant.
In the evening the hotel was staffed by quite young people, who were very efficient...but when asked for a Scotch and Ginger....one young fellow did not know what ginger was....and said they had none....but I discovered a day later there was some but he just didn't know...they also didn't know the procedure in a medical emergency....if anyone was on duty...who could help ..
We left a day early so losing a night's payment....but just could not cope with the bathroom anymore and the television....
I would not come back to this Hotel again...though Hope Cove itself was beautiful
