Good Hotel Guide Review

Nautical but nice, this ‘beautifully designed’ hotel injects New England flair into a secluded cove on South Sands beach. Soak up the ‘relaxed and informal’ atmosphere in the lounge, surrounded by beachy ornaments and original art; in fine weather, sip a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the estuary. Named after sailing boats, bedrooms are decorated in coastal pastels; ask for one with views of the sea (rear ones can hear traffic). Travelling with family? Beach suites with an open-plan living and dining area are ideal. The popular beachside restaurant emphasises fresh local seafood, with stunning estuary views a welcome garnish. Stephen Ball is the manager. Lounge, bar, restaurant (background music); terrace. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Civil wedding licence. Parking. Children (£35.00 per extra bed, per night, including breakfast; cots £12.50 per cot, per stay. Dogs (in some bedrooms; £19.50 per night) welcomed. Beaches and coastal paths. 27 bedrooms (5 beach suites; some on ground floor; 2 suitable for disabled). Per room B&B from £215–£595. Dinner £45 (3-course menu). 2-night min. stay at weekends.

Guest comments

'Beautifully designed. Our room had two windows facing the beach. Modern dining room, windows open on to the sea. A la carte menu fish based, not cheap. An efficient and good hotel, relaxed and informal. ' - Carol Jackson - November, 2013
'Very much a hotel for families. Informal staff. The restaurant with its wooden floor is very noisy. Our room was superb but hot because the underfloor heating could not be turned off. ' - KW - July, 2012
