Lovely hotel Great spa Friendly staff Nice meal Nice breakfast We all had a great time at this hotel and will definitely be returning in the future. We also had a walk along the beach which was nice although it was a bit wildly that day.

We had booked out one of the function rooms to have a celebratory meal with the whole family for my Grandmas 80th birthday. On arrival we were greeted with a champagne reception in the drawing room where the staff helpfully took photos for us and made us feel at home straight away. We were then taken in to the library...

Hubby and I booked in for half board for 3 nights. Bad points - on arrival was disappointed no doorman on to help with luggage - car park is across the road and no ramp up to front door.

Dinner was first class with excellent service as was the breakfast. Spa was just amazing. All staff from check in until check out 1st class. We have both agreed that we will...

For: Spa facilities, Service, Location Against: Hotel is dated and needs a refurb, no atmosphere, food overated and expensive, wine overly priced. Where do you go nowadays and pay £27 for a sir.ion steak and have to pay an additional £3.50 for chips or £3.50 for vegs. Wine £30 plus a bottle. Recommendation: stay on a B&B rate and enjoy...

Booked this hotel direct for a wedding as I thought it would be the best deal, paid 157 which was a lot cheaper than the 212 originally quoted on Internet. I now see it on booking.com for 106.00 for bed and breakfast which seems more realistic, phoned hotel and they were not interested in my query. Not very good customer...

Beautiful and spacious accommodation. Friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere. Pool and spa are well worth a visit. An ideal hotel for a family get together or short break. Easy to walk to town along the beach, over the golf course. A stunning setting by the sea, with large windows offering great views.
