Short notice booking meant we had the last table. Wonderful, attentive service to complement the fine food. Four of us had scallops (@2), pate, oysters for starters followed by lobster (2), pasta & seabass, then fig tart tatin, cheese. All perfectly cooked and washed down by lovely good value house white (gasgogne) and pinot noir. Ian's young team did him...

This is a very pleasant hotel right on the sea-front. The rooms are fairly traditional and comfortable, we were lucky and had a great view of the sea and the pier. The staff are very helpful and pleasant, and the breakfast was great.

A few years ago we had decent meals at Dunkerleys and thought we would revisit for a simple cod and chips lunch. Although the prices are higher than elsewhere we thought the quality would be reflected in the price. Sadly we were disappointed. The portions were small (the equivalent of child-size portions elsewhere) and the service slow. The hotel restaurant...

...which is a good thing. Not that Dunkerley's comes anywhere close to "Fawlty Towers", but the hotel does give me that "feel". A real friendly owner and staff, comfortable rooms, good food through the day, and a nice mix of locals and hotel guests in the bar makes Dunkerley's the hotel me and my friends want to return to for...

Just back from Dunkerleys (24/9/16). Reserved a table for our anniversary had high expectations and I'm a tad disappointed with the place. Service was slow to get our drinks order, when drinks finally arrived my wine glass was dirty, had old lipstick marks around the ring, I didn't want to make a fuss so poured it into a glass already...

We had a "standard" but well-appointed room with ensuite bath/shower and a view over the pier and out to the Channel. Management and staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful. Excellent dinner and breakfast.

A trip to the sea for lunch, fantastic value at £17.95 for 3 courses, tables nicely laid up in a pleasant environment, ventilation in the restaurant would be an asset, mackerel fillet cooked and seasoned well on four rocket leaves, chicken liver pate looked and tasted good, two plates of local haddock with a superb batter, new potatoes need a...
