“Perfect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night on a deal! When we arrived the initial room we were given was lovely but not what I was expecting. We returned to the reception and spoke with kayleigh who was extremely helpful and went out of her way to show us other rooms. We decided to upgrade to a fistral room for extra £20. The room was beutiful and had the most amazing bathroom with views out to sea!! The room was very clean and not even a speck of dust on skirting board behind curtain so well done housekeeping!! Loved reading about the history so very interesting!! The food was excellent and all of the staff were very polite! The spa area was fab deff worth a visit!! All in all a great stay that I would highly recommend!

My husband and I stated here for Valetines weekend 2014 and had a truly wonderful stay. This was our second stay at the Headland and I really want to keep going back. Our room was stunning, with views straight onto the ocean, seating area and huge bathroom and thanks to the stormy weather we could hear the waves crashing outside despite the double glazing. An amazing sound to wake up to! The staff were welcoming and super helpful, they really can't do enough to make your stay special. I find this hotel so relaxing. The breakfast was yummy. There were nice touches like a bottle of bubbly in the room and a little gift on our table at dinner. If you like your hotels traditional and luxurious then I would recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We upgraded on arrival, well worth it to get a Best room!

I am glad that both yourself and your husband enjoyed a relaxing Valentine's weekend here at The Headland. The Headland is the perfect location for storm watching especially at this time of year. Your review makes a delightful read, thank you for taking the time to post it on TripAdvisor and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

A lovely relaxing break again in one of the cottages. All was just as we remembered it. We also had some amazing stormy weather to make the most of our great views.Everything is to a really high standard and so clean. Made very welcome in the hotel and enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant and very nice cocktails in the bar! Will definitely return again.

Room Tip: Cottages are amazing, they have thought of everything.

After having a great night last night with freinds and family in The Headland terrace i feel i had to come on here and recommend this place as a great hotel,spa .
The staff were amazing and could'nt do enough for us -even when my freind wanted something that was'nt on the menu-they produced a lovely plate of food for him.
Cant wait to use the spa here also-looks great and the people there were so nice just showing us around:)
Love this place and love to take my family and freinds here whenever they visit.

As a family we have stayed at the Headland many, many times over the last 25 years. As soon as we walk in we relax and feel at home. We have just celebrated my 60th birthday with a wonderful old fashioned afternoon tea party with family and friends. Being the Headland things were not always exactly right, for instance the background music kept slipping, but the warmth and and atmosphere were excellent and the cake actually had the right name on it (for my 50th it said for Richard!). The staff were friendly as always and a special thank you to Kathy who looked after us so well. It is a memory I will treasure. One tip - it was exceptionally windy, and being a special weekend we had booked into the Tower suite for a treat. We spent most of the night wide awake with the noise and in a state of anxiety imaging the roof was going to collapse in on us; the next morning we moved to a room on a lower floor - so do check the weather forecasts first. On Tuesday morning the hotel's hot air balloon was drying in the ball room after returning from a competition in Switzerland - it was fascinating to see it close up. We all love the Headland, I thoroughly recommend it, and am looking to our next visit!

I do not often get a chance to stay in a hotel of this quality and i can really appreciate the difference. Luxury throughout, and really good service - welcoming and helpful. It is a really large property and there are plenty of places where you can just sit and relax and look at the magnificent views. My room was really comfortable and clean. I stayed here for three days and enjoyed all of the food and the spa.
Will definitely come again.

Room Tip: Obviously the rooms with sea view are best.

From the moment you step through the door of this traditional style hotel, you know you're in for an enjoyable stay. The welcome from the friendly staff is second to none.
All parts of the hotel have a comfortable and stylish feel. The restaurant was very well run and the food top class.
The only gripe was that the bathrooms really need updating.
They also made our dog very welcome.

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the sea or beach is worth the extra

Thank you for your review, I am glad that you both enjoyed your stay. It's hard to find 4* Hotel's that are dog friendly, so I am sure you appreciated being able to bring your dog with you to The Headland and that you were able to go for coastal walks together. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
