Lovely hotel, very friendly staff and excellent food, great location. Views to die for and great for walks along the beach. High street with plenty of tea and coffee places and a couple of nice pubs to eat.

We stayed in the Walter Raleigh Hotel recently for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, in particular Ruth at reception. Breakfast was excellent. We had dinner in the bar both evenings, which was fine. The hotel is spotless and comfortable with beautiful views.

Stayed for one night over the weekend as we were meeting friends. Checked in and found our room - beautiful boutique bedroom with views out over the beach and stunning sea views.

Booked for 1pm and served at 1:30pm due to large crowd dining. Always a good sign. The Leg of Lamb was absolutely delicious, tender and juicy and the stuffing likewise. Lovely creamed potatoes and a medley of veg. The gravy itself was a treat. The portions were very good. My partner had salmon which was tasty and juicy. The Baileys...

Breakfasters beware.... I stopped off this morning at the Walter Raleigh Hotel for a scone and a pot coffee. Not too much to ask for in a 4 star hotel one would think! To say I was disappointment is an understatement. The beverage tasted like a bland, watered-down version of the fresh stuff. Similarly, the 'homemade' scone was equally as...
