Newly refurbished country hotel close to Milford on Sea. Excelent food, breakfast brilliant. Full English best I have had all freshly cooked served individually on a warm plate with baked beans in a separate dish so no mixing up with eggs and hash browns. Staff are all local and most helpful . We were there to celebrate a club dinner...

Absolutely wonderful hotel, friendly staff everywhere from start to finish. Food superb, breakfast to dream of plus very nice selection of drinks at the bar. Now the building a massive amount must have been spent on this hotel, the bedrooms are large, everywhere is very nicely decorated in tasteful colours and art work. The gardens are very well landscaped with...

We recently stayed here for 3 nights DB&B. We had a downstairs family room which was spacious and exceptionally clean. There was plenty of storage space and a table and chairs. The bathroom was very nice with a lovely big walk in shower. The only reason why we have given it 4/5 is that, for me, the mattress was hard...

I stayed in room 24 from 12 February to 14 February. On the 1st floor, It faces the rear garden, the fields and the sheep, and was quiet. The room was comfortable, and the walk in shower good. The hotel has been bought by a couple who were away, but the Personnel were very welcoming, particularly Manager Shane who was...
