Good Hotel Guide Review
Above Woolacombe Bay, this former Edwardian gentleman’s retreat is today a ‘comfortable, relaxed’ hotel owned by Amanda James. The ‘professional staff’ are ‘friendly and helpful at all times’. Recently refurbished bedrooms are supplied with bottled water, upmarket toiletries, bathrobes and a season-appropriate duvet; all but three have ‘fantastic’ sea views; some have a balcony or garden terrace. (‘A grumble: our bathroom didn’t reflect the quality of the handsome bedroom.’) Afternoon tea, with a cake of the day, may be taken on the sea-facing terrace in good weather. When the evening draws in, ‘well-cooked’ British dishes are served in the informal bistro and candlelit restaurant. ‘Excellent’ walks on the Coastal Path nearby; private steps lead to the sandy beach.
