Good Hotel Guide Review

On the cliff of a ‘stunningly beautiful’ cove, Susan and John Gladwin’s ‘superb’ Arts and Crafts hotel is a lovely coastal retreat with ‘friendly, well-trained’ staff. ‘Spectacular’ views from the subtropical gardens ‘seem to stretch to the sea’; to put your toes in the water, descend steep steps to the secluded sandy beach. Cheery, simply furnished bedrooms have a hospitality tray and DVD-player; the best have seating space and views of the sea. When the weather turns cool, sit by the fire in the lounge stocked with books and games. At lunch and dinner, try chef Adam Cawood’s ‘exceptionally good’ cooking using produce sourced straight from the sea or nearby farms. The Coastal Path runs past the end of the garden. Lounge, bar, restaurant (light jazz background music). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). 2-acre garden (summer house). Children (cot; extra bed £15 per night) and dogs (under supervision) welcomed. 10 mins’ downhill walk to village. 15 bedrooms (3 on ground floor; family suite accessed from outside). Per room B&B £120–£260, D,B&B £170–£315. Closed end Nov–mid-Feb.

Guest comments

'There is something Enid Blyton-ish about the location and style of the place, romantically set above the coast path. It is a big house in feel rather than a hotel, an endearing mixture of eccentricity and solid, good taste. My room was small but comfortable, with a door to the garden. The meals were delicious. Service had improved since out last visit. staff were polite, helpful and friendly.. ' - Mike Craddock - July, 2016
'We spent three nights at this hotel. At check-in we were welcomed by a smiley receptionist and shown to our room. It was stunning. It had a view over their garden that seemed to stretch to the sea. It was well furnished, done with sophistication. I was impressed with the broad range of styles and subjects of the pictures throughout the hotel. All staff were very helpful and friendly. The barman was very knowledgeable on his wine. The food was excellent especially the fish. The breakfast offered good choice. ' - Eileen Quinlan - June, 2015
'This is a superb hotel. The location is stunningly beautiful with an undisturbed view of the wonderful gardens and sea. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly, helpful and well trained. ' - Angela Fell - June, 2014
