You drive down to this child friendly hotel and are immediately impressed. There is no set reception just a beautiful lobby with spectacular sea views.

Thank you ever so much for your review (although I believe that you may have written 'child friendly' instead of 'friendly, child free', as, as you know, we are an adult-only haven here.) I'm so glad that we impressed you from the minute that you arrived, and that you have a truly wonderful stay. Tom Hunter, our head chef, absolutely...

This was not how I felt when I arrived.. I had lost my two for one voucher for the restaurant somewhere en route and was in melt down. The staff could not have been kinder and immediately reassured me they would honour the invisible voucher. A delicious meal and I left feeling calm and serene. Thank you, Scarlet!

When initially coming to choose a hotel for our Honeymoon break at the beginning of July, we spent hours scouring through Trip Advisor reviews, Abercrombie hotels, speaking to previous honeymooners and I got recommendations from Venice to the Maldives.

My wife and I stayed here for 48 hours (my wife made the booking) during a trip to see friends in Cornwall. Its location overlooking the Bay, is indeed stunning, with the building being set into the hillside extremely sympathetically and landscaped in a way that does not impair the overall natural habitat. Parking in the inadequate ‘parking area’ is...

What an absolutely amazing touch of luxury after four days camping.
