Total Excellence.

A birthday surprize break arranged by my partner in April was carried through by the staff from start to finish. It didn't matter the staff did not know it was my 50th, they made you completely at ease and comfortable. The hotel was spotless from top to bottom and the room was pure luxury.
The most memorable experience though has to be said was the restaurant. Every mouthful breakfast or dinner was pure bliss of mouth watering taste. I'll say it again it was pure bliss of excellence. The cream tea was also the best I have had and a special mention must go to the Becky for her professional serving expertise that went beyond all limits. Thanks for the brownies!!
Well done to all at The Beach at Bude.

We stayed at The Beach this week for 4 nights. We had a Juliet balcony with a view of the sea and our 13year old had a pull out bed in our room. There was plenty of space. It was very clean, great decor and very helpful and friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the afternoons reading with lovely views to enjoy. We ate most nights at the restaurant and the food was superb. The breakfast was equally good with plenty of choice. I really enjoyed the Garden breakfast, roasted sweet potato, mushroom, tomatoes, wilted chard and poached egg with tomato salsa. The Sainsburys at the back of the hotel was useful. We used the hotel as a base to visit Tintagel and Clovelly as well as enjoying walking along the cliffs and beach in Bude and wandering along the canal. We didn't use the sea pool but it's a short walk from the hotel and looked great.

Excellent Hotel well worth the price

We stayed here last week for 4 nights, after booking it very late. The only room available for our dates was The Suite, which was really a family room, with 2 bedrooms, a large lounge, and well equipped bathroom. The only problems we found was that the bedrooms were upstairs, but with no en-suite, a night time visit to the bathroom involved stairs. The patio, off the lounge overlooked Sainsburys car park, and the blank white wall could do with a mural, or picture painting on it.
The staff were all delightful, from the cleaning ladies to the manager, and nothing was too much trouble for them to sort out (Parking Space, Harder pillows etc) We had pre- booked our dinner table each night, in the very good restaurant, and it was a good job we did, as it was very busy. Only to be expected as the food was superb.
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel, and really enjoyed our stay there.
