The hotel is not within walking distance of the town. It’s on the back of an industrial estate and is next to
Bowling and burger king. A really expensive hotel for its facilities and location. £100 a night for an off season visit too! Cheap looking decor from outside with some really dated decor inside for example, the bar. Rooms look like they have recently been redone but the bathrooms are really dated. I was really surprised by the hotel for the price!

Thank you for your review, i am disappointed to read that you haven't enjoyed your stay with us. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre, and we do advertise that we are located on the edge of a business park with ample parking. we cater for all types of visitors from corporate guests to families, the bowling alley is a hit with families during the summer. We do have an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness suite, saunas, relaxation suite and a games room during the summer holidays. We appreciate all feedback and would like to welcome you back in the future.

The checking, dinner, room and everything about this hotel was fantastic. If you’re staying in the area, this is a perfect place to overnight. Their bedclothes are divine!! Had dinner in the restaurant and it was simply delicious

Met my expectations for room and service for what was a late arrival and early departure to support the needs of a family holiday near Saunton Sands. No need for meals. High standard set for the room and good car parking facilities.

Room tip: No further comment.

I really like the makeover to the hotel since I last stayed. Great swimming pool. Staff friendly and helpful. Food took a long time coming in the restaurant. Breakfast was ok but nothing amazing for £10

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on your experience with us. We’re glad you like our new look and enjoyed the swimming pool facilities, although we’re sorry to read that there was a delay with your evening meal. All our food is freshly prepared and cooked to order so this can result in occasional delays on busy evenings although this is definitely not the norm and we apologise for any inconvenience. We hope this doesn’t deter you from coming to stay with again and we look forward to your return.
