    Clean and welcoming B+B.

    Swimming pool was shut. The hotel name gives a more grandiose impression.

    Nice location in a village, nice and interesting bar, comfortable room, dinner was fine, junior staff were friendly and welcoming.

    40 minute wait for breakfast on the Sunday, when it was very busy. The manager appeared on the Monday and everything seemed more efficient. However, we were shocked when we checked out: the manager asked for a 3% surcharge if we paid by credit card: we hadn't heard anything about this rule before. It seemed even more unprofessional, though, when my partner complained about the surcharge and the manager backed off and let us pay the expected rate with our credit card.

    we enjoyed out stay at The Winston but it isn't very good for people with walking diabilities, the hills are very steep

    The Location & Food

    Lots!!!! We requested 2 cots for our 18 month old twins and only got one - resulting in 2 sleepless nights (not much of a holiday). We requested twice while we were there however were told that they didn't have one!! No so-called spa, like all the other reviews the pool was closed, they shouldn't be calling themselves a spa if they do not offer such facilities. Ordered a glass of wine from the bar and was handed a filthy glass with all kinds of germs around the rim, yuck! The room rates are far too high for the hotel, I would not pay anymore than $50 a night for a family room. Luckily I did book the room through Booked.net, otherwise they would have charged us a further 50 pounds for the 2 nights, what a rip off!

    comfortable room, small but pleasant garden, friendly staff, and the breakfasts were good.

    thought the restaurant was overrated, only ok, nothing wrong with it, but didn't bother again.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The staff were fantastic, very helpful and polite and couldn't do enough for you. The bar was a lovely cozy place to relax and enjoy a few drinks. The breakfasts were superb, didn't need to eat again until dinner after filling up on them. The restaurant menu and food quality was excellent. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it.

    The decoration of the rooms was a little dated.

  • Older travelers

    The staff here were very pleasant and welcoming and the breakfast and evening meal were of a good standard

    Although the room was clean and bed comfortable, it was very small with minimal hanging room for clothes. The hotel to have seen better days.

    The location was perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Their restaurant for evening meals was simply outstanding.

    a fantastic friendly welcome, and help parking 2 motorbikes in a safe location. the atmosphere was pleasent and informal, ie, drinks, dinner were all discretly charged to our room, as we got talking to a group of golfers in the bar! recomended a great walk which we did to the beach. breakfast quality and range was very good.we felt 'looked after.'

    we felt disapointed at the evening meal, the hotel advertises a rossette award for its food, and we had high expectations. however it was served hot and in good time. the hot tub facility was also out of use, again a bit disapointing as we had travelled a fair way on motorbikes and had been looking forward to a soak!

  • Couple

    The hotel is in a great location and our room was comfortable and clean. All staff were friendly, helpfull and welcoming. The conservatory area where we ate breakfast was really nice and the full breakfast was delicious!!

    The only slight negative was a water pump / heating system located next to our room that was a bit noisy when neighbouring rooms used the shower etc.
