Have been going to the Clovelly now for more than 10 years and things just get better and better. Have just returned home after a two day stay. The room was GREAT, the food was EXCELLENT, the ambience was BRILLIANT and Hilary and Kim are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Will be returning again...
