Property a little tired and dated. Owners very helpful and friendly and it’s in a beautiful location. We had a lot of noise in the room we had but they are investigating the cause.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Gorgeous panoramic views from the bar and front garden and wonderful friendly hosts. Unfortunately the rooms we had were tired and in need of some love. Shower and kettle looked older than me and was a little temperamental. Towels and pillows very thin. Understand with the pandemic that savings need to be made, but felt like too much economising for the price paid.

The property is excellently located on the coastal path and within easy access to the main high street and village. More parking would be great but there are site constraints and the owners have made best use of available space. Overall excellent hotel.
