This is the first time I've been back to the Bay Tree since their refurb. I was blown away by how stunning it looked and how luxurious my bedroom was, with the windows artfully designed to give me a peep of the sea even though the room looked out onto the side of the building. The Harry Potter artwork on the walls was fab - tasteful and not too intrusive but a real treat for fans of the films.
The service was friendly and my cooked breakfast each morning was prompt, beautifully served and piping hot. They do lovely cakes and cream teas as well, available throughout the day, and the mango cheesecake is out of this world.
I love the fact that it's only 5 minutes from the town centre but far enough from the hustle and bustle to feel really peaceful. The beach-across-the-road always feels quiet and remote, and on a windy day a bit wild too.
The only thing I would change is to have fresh milk in the room rather than those little UHT pots, but they brought me a jug of fresh milk on request so I can't complain really.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this place as a getaway venue. It's a hidden jewel on the southeast coast and great value for money.More
