                  Booking was easy over the internet - response to questions re b'fast was quick and efficient. B'fast very good value for money. Unfortunately not able to eat in the Restaurant on night of stay - fully booked.

                  It would be good if guests were asked if they wished to dine in the restaurant at time of booking - perhaps a sample menu could be provided on your web pages.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  It was nice to arrive at 9.00pm and find the restaurant still serving dinner, which was quickly and efficiently served, appetising and wholesome.The room was well if over furnished, clean and tidy.Some clearer directions would have been useful in finding it.

                  Location

                  Very expensive. Rates hiked up for Open Golf at Sandwich? £240 for 3* room overlooking kitchen extractors & roofs is not goo vfm

                  There was a mix up with the room and some were down the line somethink went wrong and there was no comfermation on the room and it had been cancled but the hotel were really good and upgraded r room and were very helpfull.

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  We enjoyed the sea view from our bedroom and the efficient service: We asked for an extra bed to accommodate a relative and our request was met within a few minutes ;

                  Very basic ,uninspiring breakfast menu served by an equally uninspiring waiter,who seemed half asleep! Very greasy full English breakfast offer!

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  The view from the dining room

                  The fact that we were not warned in advance to book a table for dinner and they were full on the Saturday night

                  Well specified rooms with friendly staff in an amazing location. I will be back next year.

                  The manager, chef and staff were excellent

                  Breakfast was not included

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Great Location on the coast with splendid views. Staff were efficient and the room was excellent.

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  Stayed overnight and only used the bar which was run pretty efficiently. Place was full of golfers and dogs.

                  This hotel allows dogs to stay, and being woken at various times during the night by howls and barks etc is not my idea of staying in an executive room. Will not be using it again.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Lovely big comfortable bedroom with a great sea view. Friendly staff and freshly cooked breakfast. Hotel is in a great spot and we would definitely stay again.

                  Evening bar meal was a bit dry and overcooked. Would have liked a little more choice at breakfast e.g. some fresh fruit.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  The room size, cleanliness and comfort were good

                  For the money I would have expected breakfast in the price

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  This was our first visit to this Hotel. We found our room to be spacious, clean and comfortable and quiet. Service from all staff friendly efficient, and helpful. Food in resturant excellent I can recommend the grilled Cod, fresh and cooked to perfection. The full english breakfast also good. If you are looking for a short break in a friendly hotel this is the place for you. We will be going back as soon as we can. Parking free and just outside Hotel.

                  If I had to complain about anything at this hotel which I am reluctant to .However the bed (mattress) could have been just a little more firm for my comfort, as I have a history of back pain!

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  cheerful friendly staff and good breakfast

                  decor is a little tired and floral
