Positive Reviews

Fabulous food and service

The owners both come from a catering background and take pride in their food. All the reviews are positive and even say to make sure you eat here when staying or you will miss out on some delicious food.

Perfect location near the coast

The hotel is only two miles from the coast making it a perfect setting for those with families. The distance could be walked on a nice day or driven within ten minutes.

Beautifully decorated rooms

The rooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished with luxury linens, plump feather filled pillows, Mahogony furniture and designer wallpaper.

Negative Reviews

Very limited mobile phone service in the area

The owners pre warn guests before their stay to say there is limited service in the area. Those staying on a vodafone service appear to get the best signal however this can be intermittent. Previous guests have been unhappy about this issue.
