Good Hotel Guide Review

At high tide, the waves come up to the wraparound terrace of this ‘beautifully designed’ beachside hotel, sheltered in a pretty cove. Inside, a dash of New England charm infuses the ‘relaxed, informal’ lounge and beachy bedrooms. Each room, styled in coastal colours, has seasidey touches (seascape paintings; a seagull sculpture); those at the front have magnificent views. (Some rear rooms might have traffic noise.) Guests travelling with family might consider a beach suite with a separate living and dining area. Sip cocktails on the terrace before dinner in the airy restaurant: there could be chargrilled squid, chilli; pan-fried monkfish, caramelised cabbage purée, pickled vegetables. Beaches and coastal paths await.|bedrooms 27.

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
