I’m not one to review often but felt the need to do so here! Throughout my career I’ve had the benefit of staying at some of the uk’s finest hotels from Grantley Hall to Grosvenor House and the majority of the old De Vere chains across the north. I’m merely mentioning these which are all well oiled machines having had years of success. My point here is that this Hotel is relatively NEW, the staff/team are made up of wonderful Local people and at the heart is the NEW manager who could not have done enough for myself and my family. The team is more like a family than a corporate entity and this comes across in their relaxed style. Hospitality is tough these days but I really feel they have it spot on. (Read the book in the pics, not just us) Breakfast was in a word Stunning and we also had a fantastic evening meal with the children. Nothing was too much trouble at anytime. I’ve never been anywhere where I’ve personally got to meet the chef, housekeeping and the management. The hotel is Original in so many ways, Edwardian and tastefully presented. The grounds are safe for the children to run round and it’s positioned on the hill with the most breathtaking view of the bay and the local town. We will certainly be returning! This area really is a little Gem, the local beaches are incredible!


Wow! What a view and what a wonderful place to stay. My partner and I stayed here last year and keep talking about going back. The hotel is in such a stunning location, Mwnt beach is just beautiful. The hotel is beautifully kept and you can feel how much work and effort has gone into this place as soon as you walk in. We didn’t eat while we were there but the food looked beautiful. The bar is a really lovely space and the outside areas are stunning due to the views! Really friendly staff, beautiful room, amazing view. 10/10 from us!


My husband & I have just returned from a lovely couple of nights at this lovely hotel!!! What a view!!! We were very lucky to be upgraded to the junior suite which was beautiful. The decor really fits the age & style of this stunning old house. The hotel staff were all so friendly & couldn’t do enough for us. Slept like a log both nights in the large very comfy bed!!! The downstairs reception room full of comfy sofas & chairs was a favourite of mine. We will definitely be back! Thankyou for a great stay. Michelle & Jonathan Wicke


A very pretty hotel in a beautiful location. The grounds are lovely and we found the hosts to be welcoming and kind. They kept the bar open late for us. Our room was spacious and they were dog friendly. We had nice white sheets and a large television. Breakfast was plentiful and served in a very pleasant conservatory.

Stayed here on several occasions over the past couple of years, and the hotel team were friendly and welcoming. I need to be gluten-free and felt well catered for, the last time I stayed I was even given a mini tour of the kitchen by the head chef! The nearby beach is a lovely spot for swimming.


Spectacular views from a unique gem. Wonderful stay for a couple and dog super friendly. Great breakfast locally sourced.


Outstanding efforts by Angela and her team to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble.
