“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at tommy jacks. I've always felt it doesn't quite grab your attention from the outside but once you're inside it's perfect, love the skate/surf theme, fish tanks & little brewery room is a great touch. Very modern & contemporary especially for a young couple like us. Room was very small, parking limited & couldn't locate a mirror in our room but not complaining as the price was right. Evening meal & breakfast both stunning & spot on! Staff very accommodating.. Weather was beautiful which also contributed to a lovely break away :)

Dear Charity T,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Tommy Jacks. We are pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and delighted that you liked our décor! We are disappointed that you found your room small – but as you pointed out, the price was right and we do pride ourselves on being able to offer something for all our guests budgets. We apologise that you could not find the mirror in the room, we purposefully have not attached these to the walls so that our guests can move them to an area that suits them the best. You are right, the weather has been lovely recently and we hope the rest of the summer remains as beautiful. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

With kind regards

The Tommy Jacks Team

Rooms are light and airy and the finish in the bathrooms are 1st class. Food was well cooked and offered a great choice. The bar area has aquariums too. Views to the front are superb and the facilities are great. Outside terraces great when the sun is out. Very, very friendly staff who are happy to help. Decor is young, fresh and vibrant and all ages were staying there.

Room Tip: Go for one at the front for a magnificent view.

Booked Tjs at last minute, very good price. Was pleasantly surprised as it was really quite young vibe, but it was appealing to all ages and the staff were very attentive and friendly.
The decor was fun and surf style, which carried on throughout the hotel.our room was a standard double, clean nicely decorated and lovely crisp bed linen and thick white towels.
The view was of a few small windows at the back of the hotel, you wouldn't want to spend a rainy day in the room, but it was perfect for the price.
Loved the fact you could move the dressing mirror to where you wanted it, and plenty of tea/coffee/milk/hot choc to drink. Also two small bottles of water.
Our only little gripe was the minute ensuite , a couple of changes would of helped, the toilet roll holder you continuously knock your right arm on it and the towel rail would be much better on the back of the door, as there really is so little room anyway when you are standing at the basin .
But it is just an observation..but could make a difference.
The food was excellent, and the breakfast delicious.would certainly stay again and have a seaview room.

Newly refurbished, we would never have got here if it were not for a reference from another hotel in Bude. A very small room but for £50/night b+b it was hard to complain...Only 200m from Bude beach, with a nice in-house restaurant. If it only weren't for the bloody gulls screaming al night...

Positives:
Great location. Fantastic breakfast and restaurant. Lovely and clean. Friendly staff. Well decorated. HUGE bed and TV! Nice toiletries.
Negatives:
We were told we would be in a superior room with a view (part of the reason we booked) but it wasn't. Room wasn't cleaned one of the days of our stay. Shower overlooked by a room. Kitchen extractor next to the shower/toilet windows so the room smelt of bacon most of the time. Frustrating WIFI log-in and no WIFI in the room.

That being said, we had a lovely trip and would probably return to Tommy Jacks but make sure it was a different room.

Room Tip: We wouldn't recommend room 202 for reasons mentioned above but other rooms looked lovely!

We didn't stay at the hotel but the restaurant was suggested by friends in the area, we were not disappointed.

We had a homemade pizza and the cheese&bacon burger and drinks.

The food really was enjoyable the setting was airy and spacious and nicely decorated. The staff friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy good bar food with a lovely setting

Enjoy
