Another lovely visit!

A couple of nights at the Beach hotel in Bude is a great pick-me-up. This was our second visit, and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Very friendly, helpful staff who helped sort out some individual needs for us. Clean, attractive room with the promised sea view and excellent breakfasts. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings too, which has what might be described as an up-market family dining menu - the three course set price was good value at just under £30 a head. We'll be back here again!

Have just stayed for two nights. Lovely room, ultra clean, excellent views, comfortable bed. Staff were genuinely welcoming and helpful, and really cared that you were enjoying your holiday. Food was fantastic and again the attention to making sure food intolerances were considered was caring and not an issue. Thank you to all for making our short break something to enjoy. We will definitely be back

Had Sunday lunch here a couple of years ago and promised ourselves we'd come again and stay in the hotel. We stayed in room 15. Great view across Summerleaze Beach. Room was well equipped with a comfortable bed, loads of pillows and cushions. A Dyson fan, Nespresso coffee machine. A fridge with complimentary bottled water and milk for coffee too. All of the staff were friendly and professional. A well stocked bar with plenty of gins. We enjoyed a really nice Sunday lunch and although it was Mothering Sunday, the service was slick and the food was tasty too with clean plates all around. Highly recommended. We will definitely stay at this hotel again and eat in the restaurant.

The Beach was an experience never to forget, from the very warm welcome on arrival to the outstanding room and even more amazing view!!! Wow, hard to beat. Breakfast was delicious, food in restaurant was of a high standard too. Bar and sun terrace lovely.... Yes even in Feb we were able to sit out. Frak weather conditions left us feel more like we had checked in abroad somewhere. Came home very happy and even sunburnt!!! Missing the waves waking me up in the morning though. Outstanding hotel, would highly recommend to anyone!!! Thank you to all the staff but especially Jayne!!
