To reach the hotel you must travel along narrow windy country lanes. However the location of this hotel is beautiful overlooking the Bay.
The hotel was full on the night we wanted to stay so a room was offered in The Old School Cottage. check in at 4pm and out at 11am next day. This was HB for two at £69. We were given £25pp to spend on our evening meal (does not include drinks, so any expenditure above this amount is charged to your account and settled upon check out. The evening meal was beautiful. The drinks are massively overpriced. The breakfast, however is poor in comparison. The service was good except one member of staff had a body odour problem which when working in the restaurant is completely unacceptable.
Our room was very small. The bed was comfortable with clean linen but the pillows are hard. The waste bin in the bedroom had not been emptied which was not pleasant upon arrival. I have to point out (as I did upon check out to the receptionist) that this building is not fit for purpose. You can hear movement and talking of the person in the room next door. Sadly we had a family below who completely disregarded everyone else staying in the house and chose to come in making so much noise and swearing. They were aware that they had someone staying above as our windows were open but this did not make any difference. They eventually quietened when someone banged on the floor. Sadly we were left feeling unsafe and did not get much sleep.
I would not recommend a stay in The Old School House at this hotel.
