Travelling as a couple for a one night birthday stay I booked a double room with full bay views. We had been to the pub/hotel before and eaten in the bar so we kinda knew what to expect. The views from the terrace are stunning, and the walks, beach and 'nature' to be had are excellent. Having checked Tripadvisor first I elected to not eat here for diner but use the Bay Bistro next door (see separate review). So this hotel is in a prime spot. The pub is basic and serves a range of dishes. On this occasion we just had the breakfast which was freshly prepared and to a high standard. You help yourself to tea and toast and cereal buffet style. The breakfast room over-looks the bay, a nice view to start the day. The double room (No. 4 ) did have a great view, but the room was basic and not very big. A single shower out of a static caravan for example. It was all clean etc and the bed comfy. So the thing is, the room is the standard of a travel-lodge to my mind, maybe slightly better, but the cost is double. You are paying for the view and the location, and the fact that there isn't much hotel competition. One issue I did have was with a glass of wine, over-priced, warm and not very nice really, when I spoke to the barman the response was that they had got through a lot of wine over the weekend... zero customer care and not the hint of a 'sorry' or a replacement. We didn't let the limitations upset the event, slept well and checked out without complaint... sometimes you just don't have the energy. We will go back for the scenary and probably a drink in the pub, its got such a great location, but I wouldn't stay there again for a special occasion.
