Good Hotel Guide Review
For 120 years the Grose family have looked after this ‘family-friendly’ hotel approached by lanes ‘resplendent with wild flowers’. ‘Stunning’ widescreen views of the sub-tropical gardens and the coastline are found in most of the well-equipped bedrooms; family rooms have a bunk bed, or extra space for a cot/additional bed. Guests this year found it ‘decidedly old-fashioned in many respects’. Real ales and fresh seafood are found in the 16th-century village inn or the terrace bistro, while in the smart Trevilder restaurant the food was ‘good classic stuff’, the service disorganised. Rock pools are five minutes away; a plethora of on-site diversions includes croquet, tennis, a spa; a children’s club during the school holidays.
