“The most perfect break...”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

This was our first return for over 15 years to Bigbury on sea having stayed at Burgh Island previously & we could not understand why we had left it so long. The Henley is a real gem of a place.
Beautiful interior, superb views, great walking from the front door & super food! What more can we say...the bedrooms were great with everything you want & some lovely touches.
Martyn is a very good chef, his food was excellent & full of flavour & Petra is very welcoming, both making you feel at home.
They run a very good hotel and it's not to be missed if you want a relaxing and enjoyable break in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you both!

I stayed in the Henley for one night in early October. They were lovely people and very helpful. The room was clean, pretty and had an amazing view, which unfortunately I couldn't see much of due to low lying cloud!
The area is beautiful, and the weather actually made it really atmospheric.

The only negative was the drive down to bigbury on sea. It's a single track lane with passing places. I was fine, but I can imagine a nervous driver would find it a complete nightmare.

Would I stay here again? Most definitely. And I would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Amazing views, wonderful food, great service and extremely well equipped bedrooms. The public rooms are charming too. If that wasnt enough, steps lead down, to what is for a great part of the day, a private beach. We sat on an almost deserted beach, cut off by the tide, smugly looking across to Bantham beach which was jam packed.

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the hotel, the location, the room and the views. Nothing disappointed us and the breakfast was wonderful. We know the area well andnhave often stayed atnthe much more pricey Burgh Island Hotel but the Henley is highly recommended as a very comfortable( and significantly cheaper) alternative. You will not be disappointed!

Having read Trip Advisor reviews we took the plunge and booked this hotel....we weren't disappointed. It is fully deserving of the excellent reviews it has had.
On arrival we received a very friendly welcome and were delighted with our room which had phenomenal views of the beach and estuary. It was very well appointed and clean, and the en suite facilites were of an excellent standard.
Following a great night's sleep, each morning we enjoyed a delicious full english breakfast which was superb and kept us going until dinner!!
Overall a fantastic hotel, full of character and charm, in a great location made for a wonderful break.

Stunning views from our room, welcoming owners who kindly upgraded us, lovely room, thickest and fluffiest towels I've ever had in a hotel - in short a hotel I would liked to have stayed longer. My only regret was that we had not pre-booked dinner, judging by the breakfast we missed out on a very good meal.
