Staying 3 nights at end of July.
Good food, good cheerful service.
Decor is very tired
They allow stag/hen parties (OK if you're with them, irritating if you want a nice weekend with wife and kids)
The hotel is at the top of a big hill with lots of steps. Great if you want to burn some calories, not so great if you have limited mobility but to be fair, it does say so on the website.
We have room 2, a room for a family of 4 overlooking the beach. Unfortunately, it also overlooks the beer garden which was in use until the early hours. The en-suite bathroom is about 3' x 10'. It's basically one end of the room turned into a bathroom with some plasterboard walls and some plumbing. Still, it's functional but if you want to bend down to wash your face in the sink, you need to open the door. More amusing than problematic.
We would certainly stay here again through the week but would avoid it at weekends when you will be kept awake by drunks and then have to suffer them swearing all through breakfast. I think it would be ten times better if the landlord stopped trying to impress everyone with his questionable talent for comedy and focused on the comfort of all parties by asking guests to leave their rowdiness and language in the pub.
