Decided on breakfast to try this place out. The food was fine and there are some good views of the coastline. It seems to be primarily a great place for a drink as the atmosphere in the dining area was a bit sterile. Lots of TVs on the walls and a bar dominating the area.

Myself and my wife enjoyed a lovely stay for 2 nights we booked last minute. The room was great, spacious & comfortable with a great view. Breakfast was plentiful, and staff were very attentive. We would certainly stay again.

Just spent four nights at the Headland Hotel. A friendly welcome, the hotel was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. A substantial breakfast to set you up for the day. Parking, free wi-fi, lounge bar area, comfy bed, This hotel is a credit to the owners Janet & Steve

Warm welcome. Quiet at night, good location. Good choice at breakfast, good food, light and airy dining room. Felt nice and warm. Everything as good as, if not, better, than last year. Will definitely come again.

We stumbled upon this delightful hotel by chance last year. Since then on subsequent visits we always try to stay here. Unfortunately for us their reputation means that vacancies are becoming rare. Happily, we managed a 2 night stay 7-8 Oct and were not disappointed.
