Fodor's Review

Magnificently sited above the Cobb, this family-owned boutique hotel combines contemporary design with the genteel charm of yesteryear. Guest rooms in the 18th-century mansion range from the light, airy, and elegant to the cheaper and purely functional. Most have a view over either the garden or Lyme Bay. Informal meals and afternoon teas are served in the Conservatory Restaurant overlooking an expanse of lawn. The formal Alexandra Restaurant has an impressive wine list to complement entrees like roast Cornish hake in a red pepper and chorizo sauce. A Treatment Room has massages and facials, and there's a direct path to the beach.
