Are children welcome in the restaurant?

Yes. Families with children under 10 can dine from the restaurant menu in our conservatory dining room. In fine weather the terrace provides a great al fresco dining option, allowing children to play in the garden while remaining in view of their parents.

Which rooms have sea views?

All our rooms have some view of the sea apart from Room 12 and Room 11. From some rooms the view is from the room terrace or balcony, not the room itself. The best views are from our Suites. Some of our Feature Rooms have direct sea views, some have a restricted sea view in the summer when the trees are in full leaf.

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

Absolutely. We do ask for as much notice as possible in order to offer a wider choice as all of our dishes are made from scratch in house.

Where is the nearest beach?

Maidencombe beach, straight down the hill outside the hotel. It’s about 10 mins walk there, but a steep 20mins or so on the way back. Or you can drive down the hill and park within 100 yards or so.

Do you have a lift?

Unfortunately not. We do have one ground floor room, the Garden Suite, but the remainder are up either one or two flights of stairs. The stairs are wide and have banisters all the way, so quite easy as stairs go. We are always happy to carry your luggage for you of course.
