"Excellent, but maybe only until September"
Picked the hotel at random last August for a long weekend break, and when the chance came up this time for 5 nights away we didn't even look at anywhere else. The overall quality is hard to fault for a small country hotel. The evening menu was good. We did however enjoy superb weather, but I don't think that had any effect on our opinions! Wish we could have stayed longer! Would be happy to recommend - but ONLY until end Sept (see below) Read less
Likes:
Excellent staff - warm, friendly, efficient and always keen to oblige. The bar is 'dog friendly' which we loved, but we are dog lovers. One evening there were a total of 7!
Dislikes:
The current ownership ceases in late September, and at least some of the excellent staff will be going at that time. This is a great disappointment, and it is impossible to know the effect of this.

I was pleased with the cleanliness and tidy presentation of a fairly basic double room. I would say that the hotel is in need of some TLC and upgrading to give it the warm welcoming ambiance that such a gorgeous building requires. We had a 2 night stay over a weekend Read less
Likes:
The staff were friendly and trying to do a great job in difficult circumstances. The building is stunning outside and in a great location for the village
Dislikes:
Phone calls were taken by the staff in the breakfast room, for all to hear,interrupting breakfast-then discussed with negativity. Not good to air problems in front of guests

Likes:
I enjoyed staying at this place because my Mother came from the Village and I had all my childhood holiday's there. We enjoyed being near the beach and visiting family and friends.
Dislikes:
The shared shower needed attrition as the plunger that controlled the taps moved it self. Also dripping taps in bedroom. The bedroom could have been cleaned better as we were staying the week.
