The wedding was amazing and the staff really did pull out all the stops. The food served for the wedding breakfast was fresh and tasty. We...

It was a lovely hotel but for £170 a night you would expect a decent shower. It was very low pressure and kept going between hot and cold. The TV was very small by today's standards and basic. Excellent location though and friendly staff.

I booked a Headland full afternoon tea for 7 to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday, and we were not disappointed! The food was presented perfectly, tasted great, endless tea or coffee, and the service was perfect. One party member is gluten and dairy intolerant,(which I had flagged beforehand) and I had been assured that this would not be a problem....
