Sept 2020 stay
A perfect stay despite strange times. We visited for a friend's wedding and booked the Merrymoor for the location but we will be looking to return as our stay was one of our best. Amazing food, beautiful sea view room, lovely staff. The breakfast and room were amazing value for money. Would highly recommend for stunning location and views and a warm and welcoming accommodation.
