It was a warm welcome at The Gallivant. The style of the room was original and although it was wet outside on our stay, we would've made use of the private garden.
Although it made for some great giggle material, we could hear the couple next door playing a game of very loud twister. I think they both won, the walls might be a little thin though.
Everything! Seems to have thought of everything. Afternoon tea and comfy seats with fleece covers and log fire lovely in the winter. Lots of thought gone into the way breakfast was served. Food magnificent - all local. Everyone really helpful. Across the road was the beach where we had a bracing Autumn walk. Loved every minute of it.
Minor point on an otherwise wonderful stay....Could have a sign on the underfloor heating switch. We turned it on by accident and the room got too warm. Didn't realise until the morning.
Restrauant attached and short walk to beach
Cooked breakfast was chargeable
The welcome, the ambience,the food, especially the breakfast. The staff here deserve the highest praise. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a fantastic break!
carpet dirty, no milk in shared fridge, plug broken had to take it apart and found lots of hairs attached to it blinds did not operate smoothly, nothing about the room was worth the £115. cost ...
The comfy bed and quality bedding. The afternoon cup of tea and cake gesture. The beach opposite.
If we were staying longer, there was no wardrobe or real storage space.
Have stayed here twice now and has been a great stay both times. Rooms are good size and comfortable. Staff are friendly and food is very nice. Also only minutes away from the beach!
Staff on the whole friendly, relaxed ambience. Great breakfast
At £170 per night b&b didn't expect stained carpets . A few errors on the evening meal which to be fair were corrected and apologised for however, kind of put a damper on things. Bed really comfortable but pillows poor.
Stayed a few times now and each time it's a joy. Wonderful boutique hotel with a rustic seaside feel to the rooms. Love the added extras - Noble Isle products in the bathroom, DVD player, free cookies. It all adds to the overall experience. Location is perfect - you walk out of the hotel, across the road and you are at the entrance to the beach (albeit up a tall sand dune!). The restaurant is lovely, even more so after the last refit. Very relaxing, good local produce and surprisingly good wine list. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again next year.
Was a little disappointed by the knowledge of the wait staff in the restaurant. We had a few questions about some of the dishes on the menu which they struggled to answer. But they were very friendly, and did try to help.
Location and friendly staff.
Service was fairly poor in the restaurant and we were rushed to our table so this was surprising.
The largest room was on the small side
Fantastic bed, the room was lovely, good to have a sofa too, luxurious toiletries in the bathroom. In fact lots of lovely little details in the rooms that showed real care. No-nonsense wifi was reliable too, a prerequisite as I was there to work.
The restaurant was exorbitantly priced for tiny portions, truly shocking!, and the service was poor. Eg: £3.95 for a side of sweet potato rosemary fries sounds great, but I couldn't quite believe it when 6 small chips arrived. £2.50 for 2 very ordinary (and cold) slices of bread with butter as an accompaniment to the over-priced terrine. The baby gem salad on the menu came as mixed leaves, but nobody thought to point it out - if I'm paying top dollar I expect these details to be observed! The restaurant just didn't seem to care about its customers in the way that the hotel side did. I overheard other people telling staff they'd been served the wrong food, or chasing food that had been forgotten, it wasn't just me that felt invisible. If it's living on the reputation of its predecessor The Place (which I loved) then it's on borrowed time. There was nothing wrong with the food, but the only thing that was memorable was the bill - and that I woke up hungry the next morning.
Friendly staff and excellant location
All the dirty laundry and hoovers in the hallway on walk down to room when we arrived and in the morning when we went to breakfast.
Very friendly staff who were eager to please. Nice seaside decor in the room. The complimentary beach towels and beach bag were very handy!
Our room faced the car park which wasn't very scenic and the you could hear the road noise. The room got very warm at night and we had trouble sleeping. Unfortunately to hotel doesn't have AC and when I went out to ask for a fan from the night porter they didn't have any available. The next morning staff told me they have fans on order so hopefully that should help the next guests.
The room, the location, the staff, breakfast, good selection of wine.
good menu but food not cook properly for the price. Sorry.
Great staff, excellent location very close to a beautiful beach, nice big room that fitted whole family and very good restaurant.
Could not get a table for lunch in the restaurant on second day (Sunday) as fully booked and also had a function.
Lovely hotel in a lovely location. Lovely staff who really looked after us. Adored the room with its private garden. The food was wonderful. We were only there for one night but will definitely be going back for a longer stay.
Could do with a little more storage in the bedroom but against everything that was so brilliant this is the tiniest minor niggle.
Simple, understated elegance, but absolutely lovely
That the cost of bed and breakfast wasn't fully inclusive as stated! That some of the items had to be paid for at breakfast!
Had a rustic but comfortable beachside feel which was delightful considering the lovely location. Good menu albeit small. Would have liked water and tissues in room.
Housekeeping needed to pay more attention to detail. Pillows on bed were upside down and wrong way round. Bathroom was a bit tired and floor needed a deep clean around edges. Carpet in public areas needed cleaning.
Restaurant excellent. Hotel location perfect for beach.
Nothing. It's laid out a bit like a motel so can be noisy maybe if you don't know what to expect but this was our 2nd visit and was perfect for what we were looking for as a fily travelling with kids and dog
Food very good and staff helpful and friendly. Room comfortable and good hot shower.
Poor sound insulation - next door's plumbing extremely noisy and smoke alarm woke us early one morning.
We really enjoyed the location the room was excellent! We stayed in one of the biggest rooms with our little Dog. The meal in the bistros in the evening was wonderful The Manager was very helpful and pleasant. The complimentary tea and coffee and cake in the afternoon was. For New clients this does not appear to be advertised or even made clear it's available! I had the beef trio my husband had the plaice the vegetable sides were awesome! Lovely large bed and very comfy - more pillows would have been great. We stayed one night it was a fab stop before going on for the rest _of our break!
On arrival receptionist very helpful. We were shown room and then headed to sit outside to have tea as was a lovely day. The rude lady Manager abruptly spoke as I poured the tea "are you staying here" .....when I asked if she would mind letting me know which of the cakes were which flavour - she rudely replied " I have already told you there are nuts in all the cakes they are all the same flavour" ! The tall young slim fair waiter that served us breakfast was extremely polite friendly and very attentive extremely professional! The table kettle was on was very petite and dangerous needs to be bigger - flannel in bathroom and more than one hand towel for two people staying would have been a help. Parking outside room was brill!
I love this hotel and this location!
Restaurant lovely - couldn't really fault food quality. Setting great - just a hop over dunes to beach.
Staff don't seem well trained- waited 20 mins to get a drink at dinner. Communication poor at breakfast when illness to chef meant 30+ mins delay for food.
