The Hoste

In the centre of the village, this 'well-run' hotel, in a 17th-century manor house, has 'helpful' staff and 'very good' food. It is owned by Brendan and Bee Hopkins, who have undertaken much renovation since they bought the hotel in 2012. Bedrooms are in the main building, a courtyard wing, Vine House across the green, and Railway House, a ten-minute walk away (where one of the rooms is in a refurbished railway carriage on the old train tracks). 'Our courtyard room was slightly over the top - silver furnishings, silvery wallpaper, tassels, pelmets - but the essentials were right: a large, comfortable bed, quality bedlinen, excellent lighting, a decent bathroom,' Guide inspectors said. In the main house, the bar is a popular local watering hole; chef James O'Connor's modern dishes are served in the wood-panelled dining room. Typical choices: lobster risotto, bisque sauce; baked halibut, herb crust, clams. Afternoon tea is taken in the lounge and conservatory, or in the walled garden on warm days. Breakfast has local kippers and 'exceptionally good' local sausages; a buffet table has home-baked pastries, freshly squeezed juice. Beaches nearby.
  • A well-managed hotel. Very good welcome, helpful staff, excellent food and facilities, but not cheap. Our room was spacious and well equipped, decor a bit OTT, but the essentials were right, good reading lights, large, comfortable bed, decent-sized bathroom. At dinner, fish was especially good. Breakfast also above average.

  • A good place in itself and also for visiting nearby coastal sites and villages. Standards maintained. Food still excellent. Good snack lunch in conservataory. Rooms all diffferent; no noise probem with those that overlook the street: one feels part of the village. Many pictures for sale.
