    Pleasant place to stay

    We stayed here as a one night stop as we did the NC500. A pleasant hotel with good COVID arrangements in place. We ate in the main restaurant which was OK, although service was slow on the evening we were there.

    Mini break

    My husband and I stayed for a two night break which was wonderful from start to finish. I had requested a room with a view and we were given a beautiful room overlooking the first tee. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and the service was first class. The receptionist was especially helpful when trying to source a days fishing for my husband. Breakfast on both days was cooked to order and delicious. We had dinner on the second night and that was also delicious.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Staff were really nice probably the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in. Room I was in was equivalent to a Travelodge room but the view was totally stunning., I would definitely stay here again. I did come away feeling cheated though as I purposely booked a room with a King size bed and it was a tiny bed room was nothing like picture. I went to reception and asked about bed and was told that it was classed as a minimum sized King Bed. This is simply not true its a small double. My recommendation is to stay at this hotel as location is amazing a really short distance from beach and village. Staff are lovely, Hotel is clean and food is good. But do understand it is not as described as far as the bed is concerned its a small double.
