Great weekend at he Cary Arms
Great weekend, Lovely staff. Great food. Brilliant breakfast. Thank you.
Eric, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Rustic charm and character right by the sea.
We received a warm welcome from the staff and our room was light and airy and spotlessly clean. Lovely to be so close to the water even though it was January. We had a delicious evening meal by the fire and thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast with sea views. It is very informal and although not as luxurious as we had expected it had plenty of old fashioned rustic charm.

Exceptional 10.0
A little bit of heaven!
Everything at The Cary Arms was wonderful. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent and all the staff so friendly. The spa is wonderful and so relaxing. Well worth a visit! We only stayed one night but it was so beautiful and relaxing that we came away feeling as though we’d had a holiday. We will be back!

Very good food, hospitality, care of detail and gorgeous location. I was here only for a night prior to a few days of business in London. Would love to come back.
