We came off the ferry from S. Baymouth. We thought we would have a special evening/night there for our Anniversary. Reception rushed. Room small. "King" bed was more a "Queen". Décor trying to be coastachic but sort of missing it.
Bathroom tiny, dirty and outdated,. Shower nasty. Outside room chairs to watch sunset. Pretty venue/area. Dinner: not as great as they think it is. Menu in frame in bedroom is not what menu in restaurant was. Told at Reception to wait a while till crowd died down. We did and then missed sunset from the dining area which is what we wanted for our Anniversary meal. Left for 45 mins without any drink at all after ordering a bottle of wine. We were told they were too busy with a large crowd at one table. Confusion with how the speciality fish was presented as it differed from menu in frame on bedroom wall. Restaurant service in general was abrupt and we felt the waiter could not be bothered with us. No idea of customer service at all. Would not recommend or go back there. A pity as it is ideal for ferry passengers.

Enjoyed the atmosphere, service was attentive but not too much. The sunset was magnificent (even though the sun got in the eyes of one of our group!)

Small quaint restaurant attached to the motel.
Nice sunset .
Friendly staff but appeared to be a bit harried.
Tasty scallop presentation but the scallops were overcooked.
Wicked sweet potato fries

I did a separate review of the motel since i don't think the dining room should be lumped in to the same review. We had diner here one night of our stay. We had enjoyed it a few years ago and decided to return. Unfortunately the charm of the place was gone. The interior had been painted and unflattering colour and the decorating and table dressings resembled more of a regular no frills eatery. Service was good, food was great, but none of it warranted the prices they charge.

Beef and White fish were on the buffet. The several filest of beef had been cooked for different times so that rare, medium and well done were available. The rare was wonderful!
