Amazing location just minutes from the beach and coastal path. Very quiet and calm. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was great and evening meals at the restaurant were delicious. Hotel is very dog friendly, they accompanied us to all our meals (designated areas). Would definitely stay again

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is small with c 18 rooms. All are a good size, and the ones with a sea-view are stunning with open terraces with relaxer chairs / umbrellas as well as an expansive view down to the sea. We went as a three generation group with several dogs and we were all made to feel very welcome. We loved everything about the hotel, especially the relaxed approach which meant that we felt at home straight away. The menus were extensive, and the waitress didn't bat an eyelid when we asked for a few variations to the main meals which was kind. The pool was nicer than it looked in the pictures and was wonderfully warm. We even enjoyed playing tennis on the grass court, albeit that there were some decidedly funny bounces!! The only tiny gripe is that our bed was far too soft, but rest of our party all found their beds comfortable. Overall, a very enjoyable stay in a stunning location and we will certainly return. Thank you.

Spent three wonderful relaxing days here with staff who are extremely efficient and courteous at all times even when busy. Special shout out to Jonathon and Clive . Rooms spotlessly clean, menu although limited ( due to Covid possibly) Was very tasty and presented beautifully. The road down is a bit exciting as it is very narrow and few passing places, but it is worth it for the views and the quietness and the sunset. Thank you all.

Amazing location but not sure hotel quite lives up to the price. Distinctly average rooms were 'tired' and a little damp. Really no excuse for a 4* hotel to use a third party to provide wifi who require permission to use your data. Because they do, this is not 'free WiFi' as advertised. And have to log on anew each day. No 4g or mobile reception so no option. V friendly staff and breakfast was good. Rooms not very private as other guests can walk past your french windows and look straight in.

A lovely hotel in a wonderful location. The Cove View suite was spacious and very comfortable, with stunning views. The staff were all excellent and very helpful. The menu is a bit limited currently, especially when staying for a week, but, given the current staffing difficulties, this is understandable. We had a few issues around the disabled facilities for our parents....but will speak to the hotel privately about those. We will be back.....one day.
