    Fantastic Hotel
    Fabulous stay at The Headland. This was our 3rd visit. Lovely welcoming staff & beautiful rooms & views. The breakfast is also brilliant.

    Historical, classic and relaxing! Staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast included with our staff was very tasty, it also had plenty of choice!

    Tried to cancel more than three days before due to unfrozen circumstances and the hotel reception refused and took full payment even though i had stayed here many times before

    We had a lovely post Christmas spa break at the Headland. Rooms were great, staff were very friendly while still being professional, the spa was super, food was lovely. This is a great family hotel and it is lovely to have kids and dogs around. My only comment would be that with the kids around, the pool in the spa gets a bit busy and noisy but this will soon be resolved when the new pool complex is completed in 2020. We will certainly be going back.

    Very good 8.0
    Happy with Headland. Disappointed with Elmis Spa
    The Hotel was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. We hoped it to be special and the hotel itself was. What was a huge disappointment was the spa. They seem to usurp off the hotels reputation, we were not used to children being given more spa time than adults, very disappointed that treatment prices weren't made clear on booking. Most treatments cost around £2 a minute. We were told this was because the Hotel was high-end, but having been to NIRVANA SPA in Berkshire, We know what is high end spa, and this is not it! we were informed children will not be permitted after the new pool complex is built. We booked for the views but also for the spa and the latter was a horrendous experience. We felt cheated.

    Great hotel , food and facilities . Bedrooms are fine but could be updated to be more in line with the rest of the hotel

    The staff was great. The hotel and the location is legendary. I couldn't thank enough to the hotel manager for supporting us and making our stay there a great experience.

    Good 6.0
    On both our meals, extras were added on to my bill. On one occasion an extra course was added on. Then again for dinner the following night, another side was added on and 3 coffees and a tea, for one adult! In total, on two meals, I got the wrong items on my bill three times. This is a 5 star property. Disappointing. The room super small, the beds tiny, the TV screen tiny and no facility to dry your clothes or swimwear from spa. The room felt stuffy from the old carpet.

    Great property, with really helpful staff, there was a problem with our room which was resolved quickly. It was like stepping back in time in a good way. The food at breakfast and our evening meal in the restaurant was excellent. There is a vegan menu. Great views of the sea from the restaurant. We will be back.
