“Another wonderful holiday here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

We have stayed in this hotel many times. The current owners who have been here five years, work as a family and make the stay a very pleasant one. They are friendly and knowledgable about the area. The food is very good indeed and the hotel is very comfortable and clean. All the bedrooms have exceptional views as does the dining room. We particularly like the fact that you really don't have to use the car as there are splendid walks in all directions. Plenty of car parking space.

Room Tip: We stayed in room three which was great.

Stayed here for a long weekend to do some walking and relaxing.
Room had amazing sea views, was large and spacious and very clean and tidy. It was one of the best rooms i have stayed in!
Service at breakfast and dinner was first class and the owners made you feel incredibly welcome and at home. Food and service matched a top restaurant.
Advice on walking and routes was spot on.
Could not fault anything. Must stay here if looking in Devon!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2011

The hotel was lovely, serene and the service excellent. We had a room with a four-poster bed with great views, despite the weather. We wanted to go somewhere to eat in the evening and were recommended number of places and the owner even gave us his o/s map to help us get there. As it was out of season, we had to give notice to eat in the hotel and as we prefer to get out to eat, looking at the menu, it would have been worth booking ot eat there.
The breakfast was great - overall a lovely stay.

The gentleman checking me in was very friendly and helpful, and the rest of his family were pleasant too. Lovely room with great views across the bay to Countisbury Point, and also across the Bristol Channel to Wales. Very peaceful and relaxing location, with the distant lapping of the sea the only sound.

We originally stayed here for our short honeymoon in 2008, and have been coming back ever since. The sea-views are stunning, the peace and quiet and the wonderful beds make this such a relaxing place to stay, whatever the weather is doing outside.

We particularly enjoy the food and the style of service -- on a cold winters night, sitting in front of the fire in the lounge with an aperitif, after placing your order for dinner is such a civilised way of dining.

If you like the personal touch you can get from a small family-run hotel, rather than corporate anonymity, then this is for you.

Stunning sea views make this hillside location perfect. Excellent friendly hospitality and great little touches ensure a most enjoyable and relaxing stay. Other guests also raved about the 'little gem' they had found. Steep entrance was well worth it even in the rain! Choice of dishes on the dinner menu was very unexpected but standard of food and service was superb. Free parking a great asset. Comfortable lounge and restaurant also enjoyed stunning views.
