There are a couple of small issues to be addressed 1) The main dining room doesn't seem to be particularly flexible on timings aiming to maximise occupancy... More

Everything on hand for a perfect getaway, particularly for, but not only for the golfer. Excellent food, beverages and service at the golf club. Fantastic restaurant, bar, service and facilities in the hotel.

Wonderful short break - lovely staff, great food, fabulous setting. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff; they make you feel very welcome. The food is top quality and the atmosphere throughout the hotel is total relaxation. First class golf course, clubhouse and pro shop. Can't fault it, which is why we keep coming back.

Away with work trying to find good hotels, this is a great hotel. Stunning location on the cliff top, lots of facilities. Spa felt a little cold the heating needs turning up on a cold night and jacuzzi should be warmer Will definitely be a regular guest with work rebooked already
