  • Lovely tribute to former times, this wonderful hotel is stuffed with memorabilia from Victorian times on. It's atmospheric and unusual and has a very friendly and bohemian vibe. The hotel is situated on top of the cliffs and every room has a sea view. I can't wait to return
  • Family run hotel with a traditional English feel. The hotel has items on display from the past like a museum which is original and quaint plus a really old Otis lift which all add to the unique ambience of this hotel. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable the restaurant serves delicious food and the staff are friendly and service good. The owners used to meet here after school when they were dating years later the husband bought the hotel for his wife as a wedding anniversary present what a romantic gesture.
  • The downstairs hall was relly lovely, and staff were alway happy to help. The upper rooms have a stunning view.
  • Awesome hotel. Was up on the third floor with great views and a balcony. Really eclectic mix of material inside. Nice bed, very clean.
  • Nice quirky hotel bar with nice view of the sea
