Lovely, cosy, quiet, relaxing lounge which appeared newly decorated. Sandwiches delicious. Cake selection a little odd, couple of cakes but otherwise sweets and chocolates. Disappointing scones - very dry and hard - fruit scone literally rock hard! Not quite sure why on 23rd October the cakes/sweets were halloween themed or that the average person booking a refined afternoon tea wants happy Halloween labels and images sticking out amongst their cakes and sandwiches like a children’s party! Think this should have been a choice rather than standard.

Me and my wife booked for 2 nights, Tue, Wed, and had a great time there. Close to all amenities and able to park right outside hotel with a £2 daily permit from the hotel. We had a great sea view, room was clean and reception, bar and restaurant staff all very polite and efficient. Booked a half hour slot at the indoor pool and had it to ourselves. Would definitely return.

Booked about a month ago with a conformation email.this was for my wife’s 60 th birthday celebration, we stayed at the hotel in 1983 just before the birth of my first child. So we were looking forward to this meal. Firstly Reception couldn’t find our reservation. Not a good start. Ordered food and wine. Prawn cocktail was swimming in water from the salad. Main course was the liver well well the liver would had been more at home in a tannery. Hard over cooked and disgusting. I informed one of the waiting staff who told me that liver is difficult to cook so I replied that why you employ a professional chef to cook it properly. We ordered the cheeseboard because hopefully you can’t mess that up.we were given lots of excuses during the course of the eveninig into evening that the restaurant had a lot of cancellations. No surprise their then. I think the hotel should be rebranded from Best Western to Worst Southern. I will look forward to you return email for an explanation. John Summers.

Nicely presented afternoon tea. Probably a bit too quiet for us, but COVID a contributory factor to this.

if no coach parties restaurant would nearly empty I noticed people who ate in the restaurant previous day when to the bar as they didn't like the menu . but the turkey pie was nice . my husband and I were so happy to arrive home and eat proper English food ,what a shame we love the hotel , but this spoilt my break I new the manager was away so didn't make a complaint.

fortunately I was offered the menu from the bar so all good, but I feel your regular three course dinner menu is to fancy for a three star hotel , it never used to be like this ive been staying in the hotel for 35 years and now feel I cannot have dinner in the restaurant now. apart from coach parties the bar has lots of people eating but only a few in the restaurant . maybe the menu .

omg what have you done, very limited menu parsnip soup or goats cheese . fish or quail not for me im afraid what a waste of money . to large chunks of goats cheese of which would normally be served with bruschetta or biscuits of some kind, I cant eat fish and wouldn't choose quail what happened to chicken, anyway I said I would have a bowl of chips of which were not the same as you serve in the bar of which are always lovely, .they came up in a soup bowl briskly plonked in front of me by a very stern faced hotel service's manageress no eye contact as she said any sauces , I felt she truly wanted to tip them over my head

Dinner was lovely, beautifully cooked, reason for 4 star and not 5.was sizw of main course and desert. The 5 oz filet was tiny, and other diners were saying the same thing. Maybe a few more veg or salad could have been added, but other than that it was excellent

I booked the Lansdown following a friends recommendation and have no hesitation in recommending it myself. Super friendly staff lovely food - breakfast and finer. The latter having a daily changing menu. The good well presented and cooked. The hotel is in a great location opposite the beach. I am sure I will be making a return visit soon.

I think your staff member's name is Dora? She is a credit to your hotel, very friendly and professional. We were running late for dinner but it was no problem and we were treated very well. To be honest every member of staff we came in contact with were great and nothing is ever too much trouble. We would definately recommend your hotel and would stay with you again.
