Relaxing and peaceful - beach 200 yards away - Can't complain about anything - all 5 star - Even when a freak storm almost led to flooding, the staff were wonderful and a crisis was avoided with smiles all round :0)

We spent a week at this lovely hotel. It is quiet, relaxing and very well run. It's very close to the most magnificent beach where you can walk for miles. Food quality here is very good and staff are all friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

“I had a small problem with my room. When I reported it, the hotel upgraded me to another room. The first room had been facing the back of the hotel but my upgrade faced the pool and garden. Whilst both were pleasant in their own way, I would certainly pay extra for the garden and pool view in future.”
