Staff are very helpful and on the ball; we needed breakfast at 07:00 on the dot and were offered the option to order the night before. Our breakfast arrived on the dot and was very good. It was also great to be able to have a swim after 6 months of being out of the water, and I just managed it in time, before the thunder and lightening struck. As previous reviews have mentioned the room we stayed in was a little tired, but I think they are being updated over time. It was spotless nonetheless. Thank you Old Rectory

This hotel was made by the friendly service. It was just what we needed, near Bewilderwood and a comfortable family room for the night. The weather was exceptionally warm so we could have done with air con. It’s a traditional hotel and probably needs a bit of an upgrade but honestly couldn’t fault the welcoming, friendly service. We would stay again- if you want fancy frills this isn’t the place. If you want a warm welcome and a bed for the night near some beautiful beaches this is a great choice.
