Came to Orestone Manor for a meal for my husbands birthday. We had a very nice meal here, the menu was quite limited, but I was able to try something different than I'd normally go for, which I was glad about as it was really nice. The staff are very polite and attentive too. A nice evening with an extra... More

Thank you for your review. Normally dinners would have access to the full choice of menus which offer a good choice. However as would have been explained to your party organiser upon booking Larger parties of over 10 people are offered the choice of the a la carte menu OR the daily menu as without a pre order offering all...

I would really struggle to fault any part of our stay. From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel welcome. We were early so couldn't check into our room but were made to feel more than welcome and sat down for a drink in the lounge which felt more like someone's front room with the... More

Stayed two nights and found the whole experience delightful. Staff extremely helpful, stayed the night of a murder/mystery weekend which added to the fun (we weren't involved), food was excellent quality - breakfast and dinner. Can recommend the walk down (and back up) to the beach - certain builds up an appetite !

Fantastic get away. The room and service was superb. Nice sea views from the room we stayed in (Shire). Lots to do in the surrounding area. Hot tub was a real winner. We would highly recommend staying here.

This is a beautiful property, in a stunning location, extremely well-run and well-managed, with gorgeous accommodation and a terrific restaurant. There's nothing I would change about this place...just keep doing what you're doing there folks, keep up the standard, and don't take your foot off the pedal. We would definitely return!

Like another reviewer on here has noted, this hotel was brought to my attention by the Telegraph review. Although it was not easy to find when driving late at night - one of the owners later told us that we shouldn't have followed the satnav/Google maps, it certainly lived up to the expectations. The room was well appointed with a... More

Comfortable room, excellent food, fabulous view of the bay from our room. A very enjoyable stay. Package including dinner is good value. Horsley suite is particularly comfortable. I would certainly stay there again if in the area.
