I was walking the southwest coastal path and accommodated here as it is in an ideal spot. The rooms are impeccably clear!!! Bright,airy and lovely decor! The cleaners do more than their job title, they make you feel welcome and comfortable! Breakfast was 10/10. The service was spot on & a very knowledgeable lady spoke to us about walking, she was lovely! Coffee & food was fantastic! I will definitely visit again

We ate there. The portions were huge! Too big really because we left a lot of it. What we did eat was delicious though. A bit pricey now though compared to what it used to be. Staff were good, service was quick. We used the app to order. Really easy.

Been here a few times now for a meal. Price is decent and right for the area its in wspas its a tourist area. Always have a lovely meal. Nice park and seating outside where you can also enjoy your meal and drinks. A small carpark at the side of it, but it does tend to fill up extremely quick. Central to all Westward Ho! attractions. Dog friendly which is fantastic for us and family friendly to you.
