I stayed in this hotel as part of an HF Holidays hiking weekend. The rooms are comfortable and we had a great sea view where we could watch the sun rise over the ocean. Food is good with substantial breakfasts and a good choice of courses for dinner, all made using a lot of local products. There's also a wide...

It had been recently refurbished to a very good standard. The staff were first class led by an excellent manager, and the food was excellent too. The local draft bitter...

We stayed at this hotel from 13 to 16 September, I could not find any fault whatsoever, the staff are cheerful and cannot do enough for you, even offered us swimsuits if we had forgotten ours, which we hadn't, they gave us white bathrobes for around the pool and as many clean towels as you wanted. The first night we...

A Holiday Fellowship house with loads of walkers but they take independent guests as well. Stunning location with views of the sea and chalk cliffs. Bedrooms were newly refurbished with very comfortable beds, marvellous hot baths - more like a four star hotel than my memories of HF holidays fifty years ago. The breakfast choice was outstanding and the staff...

Second visit to this great location. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was first class. New decor, shower room and beds. The food is mostly locally sourced and the breakfast has a huge selection of healthy choices together with the usual cooked breakfasts. Staff friendly and helpful. Fantastic location.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with my husband at the end of March. What a lovely hotel, the bedrooms have recently been refurbished and are in excellent decorative order.
