“Another excellent trip”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed here last week, for a UNISON Welfare conference. This is my second visit. This time we were in the hotel. I had a lovely room with a double bed and two single beds in an area away from the double, would be great if you were travelling with children. The room was clean and warm, I was worried at first that it was quite dull but the bulbs were eco bulbs and they took a while to get to full strength!
We were full board and as last time the food was plentiful and excellent. There was a good choice of dishes including lots of salads and cold meats.
The evening entertainment was good, Elvis still strutting his stuff!!
We never got the chance to use any of the swimming or spa facilities, but they also looked fine as we walked by them each day! Never got to the beach either, although we found the gate that leads to the dunes!!
The staff were friendly and helpful. Another great holiday!!

Room Tip: Down stairs rooms in the hotel have the advantage of a patio.

Recently got back from this hotel following a 3 night break bed and breakfast in one of the cottages. Cannot fault the location, food, cleanliness, location etc.
Amazing countryside and beaches. Short ten minute drive from Barnstaple town centre. Local bus service for those without the use of a car.
Every amenity you need is all within a short distance. Post office, shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Plenty for kids to
do.
My only negative observation is that it is not cheap.
I won't go into prices here because you can see for yourself on the website.
If you decide to eat out a lot then that too can be expensive, certainly for those with family's.

We went here 4-7th April for my birthday, the hotel was lovely, very clean and had everything you would need. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was great, food was very fresh and tasty. The facilities are really good, we never used the pool or the sauna but they looked good and well maintained. The whole site was kept clean and tidy. We were made to feel very welcome. The hotel room had a kitchen, which was great as it gave you the option of self-catering if you wanted it. The hotel was very quiet. The beds were comfortable. Michele, Martin and their teams all do a great job. We are having our wedding here next year and know we are in good hands.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 128, this was on the ground floor, with a patio area and views of the tennis court...

Amazing place 4th year In a row we've been back kid friendly loads of fun!
Went to the bar for the first time tonight to watch the football! Took a beer in (probably a bad idea) general manager Steve willis came along rude and aggressive told me to get out or they would cancel our room! Over a beer? I went straight outside and binned it! Half assed apology once complained about! Makes me not want to go back! Party of 20 also beer and cider were flat.... Still stay they're but never go back to bar!

Early season visit in one of the holiday cottages. Very quiet as just before schools broke up so had the place to ourselves. Some welcome improvements to the cottages - new TV, curtains, bedding and a dishwasher. Staff as helpful as ever. Such great and affordable accommodation in a beautiful location. Love it!

3 of us went here with a seven year old in February half term. The big bedroom was fine but the little one was very little and had 2 bunk beds and not much else. There were however 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was good and well supplied and led straight into the living room area. All was clean and tidy and could not be faulted on that. The living room (tv has poor reception) looked out onto the tennis courts which was ok but personally the noise would have been too much for me in summer with only a little pathway in between and people walking to and fro as well towards the beach (which is reasonably near and can be accessed easily although it is not a flat walk) I wouldn't like to sit out and eat on the table provided during busy times! Others look out onto green areas so ask if you are booking. The swimming pool seems a bit small for the summer season but was ok for us. The kids are well looked after and the food is good though the sausages at breakfast left much to be desired, I was reminded of the school canteen! The shop is small and the reception staff are fine when they are there but shut early so you can get a bit confused if you are tired after a long journey. Beware last in the line of 'cottages' we had had a shower attached to the end wall opposite the gate to the beach, this could be very noisy high season. However over all if you like this type of holiday you will have fun I am sure.

I've only ever stayed here on surf trips before and, after the wettest and stormiest winter on record, was rather dreading a February half term trip with my 8 year old daughter, another dad and his 2 girls. How wrong could I be?

It's a brilliant place to take children. There are lots of outdoor and indoor distractions including a great heated pool jacuzzi and steam room, pool, table tennis and snooker tables and a large fun zone with shuffleboard and other over-size games. Outdoors there's a playground, football goals, mini golf and a putting green. And 2 tennis courts. The restaurant is clean and the food is of pub grub standard and excellent value (especially compared with the Thatch). Each evening there was a children's disco with party games which adults could join in with. My daughter made friends with other girls who share her burden of having season tickets at Fulham.

There's a gate which leads out onto the dunes with access to magnificent Croyde Bay, although its not too safe for swimming. Luckily we were there the first week after the big storms and we had a couple of days of lovely sunshine. We all went in the sea (with wetsuits on of course).

The cottages had just been refurbished and were comfortable and warm. The tariff worked out at just under £60 per night which was excellent value.

I'll definitely be back for an off season trip.
