Had an absolutely amazing experience here. Adam the new waiter and Claire the receptionist were extremely welcoming and friendly. Couldn't be any happier with the customer service! Beds are comfortable, bar staff are friendly and drinks were nice and cheap and there's plenty of room to lounge! The food was near perfect, soup, hunters chicken were spot on! Was a...

Very helpful and friendly staff. We were a group of friends on a cycling break. The staff helped us stow our bikes securely in the courtyard, advised us on local amenities and were generally helpful .

The room was good value for money paid but outdated in decor. It was nothing like the pictures shown on the web site. Can only assume they have not renovated that far yet! Bathroom very dated and carpet not a good idea! Arrived to find a towel crumpled on the bed and another on the side (rather tatty) can only...

As several other reviews have mentioned, this hotel is very good for the price - just over £40 a night for bed and breakfast. We had the 4 poster bed which was in a large room with bath and shower and a bay window overlooking the front of the hotel and with a view of the sea. Staff were OK...

We bòoked this hotel pretty much at the last minute, I know the Island very well, I went to boarding school there, and to be honest it's incredibly beautiful. I know the reviews a tad late, but was hesitant, due honestly to nostalga, but really have to say the place is a complete disaster, let it be said, I've traveled...

The room was fair for the price and clean enough. HOWEVER...staff were rude and desperately needing some customer service training. No parking available as car park too small for the amount of guests (at the end of October out of season as well!). Pool freezing, sauna turned off. Breakfast staff nice enough but completely over worked and under staffed -...

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here while on a motorcycle tour of the Island. We had a large double room with balcony that had views of the sea in the distance. The room was very clean and pleasant, the view was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a pool on the ground...
