    The team and place were amazing

    We stayed as we were attending a wedding at the hotel. The team were exceptional, especially Natalie front of house manager, professional and attentive. For us being dog lovers, we were even allowed to bring our well behaved dog! Great quality breakfast! Will stay again!

    Beautiful venue

    Stayed for the weekend for Fri and Sat night for a friends wedding. At first sight of the hotel, it was a single story understated beach hotel, but from entering the reception area you meet friendly, customer focused staff and our room was comfortable but with lovely furnishings that makes it feel like it is your own room. The Food is amazing and the whole wedding was coordinated beautifully. Being a stones throw from the beach we took evening and morning walks and was even abe to take the Hotel dog "Camber" for beach walks too!! Will definitely stay again!
