Good food with great service. We actually had a slight issue with the desert, it seems it was delivered to the wrong table by mistake. When we asked where our desert was the mistake was dealt with extremely professionally. Mistakes happen but how they are dealt with makes all the difference and the response made me want to come back and recommend the restaurant

Food was absolutely stunning and the quality of everything was superb considering the cost was all included in the hotel booking. Staff got some orders wrong on drinks etc but this didn’t affect the overall enjoyment of the restaurant. Will definitely be coming back to stay at the hotel again and look forward to the restaurant (especially for breakfast with all the Prosecco!)

It's not huge feedback but the vans parked in front of the restaurant ruin what should be a beautiful view. I think cars at the front vans at the back

It was unfortunate that it took so long for our coffees to arrive (after the afternoon tea arrived) and we had to ask the staff for plates so we could actually eat our sandwiches and cakes (I didn't want to eat them straight off their tables). Sandwiches and cakes were nice.

The food was returned due to a hair in it and mustard on the sandwiches after requesting no mustard. A long wait for food-35 mins. Asked for more tea-never got any. A hair in the sugar bowl, lipstick on a ‘clean’ cup. Bin in toilets overflowing with tissues. Bar staff didn’t seem interested.

Some starters were very small, e.g. the salmon starter whilst the soup starter which my other half ordered was very large. So there were some inconsistencies here although all tasted good.

I pre-booked a table for two with sea view at 'The Dunes Restaurant' today (Mothers day). On arrival we were shown to the Bay Bar, where we were seated at a very small round side table. I asked if we could move to one of the empty larger tables with a view, no problem he said. We then Sat looking puzzled for 15mins while the waiter got our drinks. Unfortunately the waiter did not know the difference between red and white wine and seems completely confused as to why were there. After another 15mins without attention I returned to the reception to ask why we hadn't been given a menu yet. Almost immediately the waiter came over and gave us a bar menu, I asked were we not to be seated in the 'Dune restaurant' as booked, and where was the restaurant menu. He replied, we are a little busy today so we would be dining in the bar. I said this was totally unacceptable for a special mother's day treat, so he went away and got a more senior member of staff who informed us that they were only serving 'spa package customers' in the restaurant today and could not cater for us even though we had booked for dinner. We left feeling so very let down. What a poor show from a so called quality establishment, the day was ruined and one my better half will probably never forget.

Absolutely fantastic food, it really was amazing. The service was also fab, very welcoming and polite. It was our first time visiting but we will definitely be back! The only tiny downfall for me was that it was quite chilly and drafty in the restaurant but other than that I can't fault it!

The view was fantastic! The afternoon tea was nice, really liked the fresh scones. Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The service left much to be desired unfortunately. Pre-booked afternoon tea though had to wait half an hour at which point I went to order at the bar as nobody had come to the table. It then felt we had to wait again a long time before the tea arrived. When the food came, there were no side plates for us to eat from, nobody came to check how we were enjoying the meal and we didn’t want to have to go back again to request the side plates. In the greater scheme of things this isn’t the end of the world but when you’re spending a considerable amount of money to treat a relative for their birthday, there are just some expectations regarding service.

More style over substance I'm afraid..the service was absolutely outstanding no problem at all. The food tasted good and it is a shame that the chef wanted to try and be a bit too fancy. All we wanted after a long walk was comfort food - a bowl of pasta and a cheesecake not a deconstructed cheesecake that was all.about how it looked. A shame as had real potential.

Hotel is lovely but the restaurant is a disappointment. Food is overpriced and underwhelming. There is a complete lack of ambience. It was raining so we chose to eat in the restaurant but it was a mistake .
