We very much enjoyed our 13 days holiday with youfrom the 9th August to the 22nd.We are now back home in Spain.As I promised, here is my poem called,Putting Food on the Slate.The service here is really great,as in the restaurant, we wait.The starters finished. Now main course,and I could almost eat a horse.But what is it that we can see?What does the waitress carry?Though we are served in great style,the meals are served upon a tile.My theory's open to debate,but have they run short of a plate?I tell you readers the real truth,we need two tiles on our home's roof.Would their stock of slates diminish,if we take two, when we finish?Our neighbour's table looks, not good,their meal is on a piece of wood.It seems that our neighbours can't win,as blood from steaks, so rare, soaks in.It may be great, or even swell,a train worker cooks on a shovel.But please chef, or maybe the cook,give us some plates. Not the new look.Then our pleasure will be complete,for starter, main course, and the sweet.I wrote it 2 years ago. Hope you like it.Bye for now.John and Cynthia Stevens.

Bathroom a little tight but not a problem at all.Brealfast really tasty and served with a smile.I wish them all the very best in their new venture.Hopefully see you next year!

Reviewer:Kimberley Henshaw | Tue 1st Aug 2017
It was our first time at this hotel so was looking forward to it! When we arrived we were greeted by the new owners Hazel &Dave working hard as usal to make everything ship shape at their new guest house! What a welcome, so friendly &apologetic as they were cleaning ect! We were given an option of two rooms one with two single beds or another with a lovely double that was so comfy! Clean room with tv &nice variety of programs, tea/coffee with biscuits! Wiuld be nice maybe to have a hit chocolate for the night but hey no big deal just a little idea! Clean towels &rooms were spotless with clean towels, but also you fill questions about your preferences for brekfast! I only like hard eggs with no tomatoes &thats what they did &it was delicious! I noticed some children wanted pancakes &a gentleman had even chips with breakfast, so nothing was too much trouble! Considering they only took over 3 days before we arrived I think they were doing an amazing job in such a short time! We had a little problem with the shower holder as it was a bit loose, was fixed no oroblem! They would rather you tell them if you think of anything to help them be a success, and if they carry on the way their going I can\'t see a problem in the near future as we will definitely be calling back! Just to say the tables in the restaurant was a bit in the large size not much room,but Hazel did mention about changing them to smaller ones 👍 Would recommend staying here absolutely fabulous, well done &the best of luck for yournew adventure &hooe to see you all in the near future! Kay &tony Ridgeway, South Wales, 31/07/17
Hi Kay,Thank you so much for your amazing review.All points taken on board.You would now find a galaxy hot choc in your room, and the tables in the dining room are now smaller so we have lots more room.I hope you are well and hope you will return soon.All the best... Hazel & David

Location is very good only a few yards walk to the sea front ¬ far from the Pier. Town centre is a ten min easy walk. Garfield Road is one way traffic with the no entry sign off the sea front which means it\'s not too noisy at night. The Hotel itself is very clean &well furbished,&the lighting is good.I\'m a single female &stayed in the single double room on the ground floor situated at the front of the Hotel. Lisa the owner is approachable &helpful. When booking I informed her I was a vegetarian with Dairy &Yeast allergies. She got me the Soya milk &oat cakes that I\'d requested. Breakfast had plenty of choices and was cooked well no greasy spoons here !!! I stayed here for 3 nights 30/31st Dec &1st Jan &would highly recommend this Hotel...Well done Lisa you\'re doing a great job.
Reviewer:Mrs. Rosemary Beresford | Sat 3rd Jan 2015
The hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of the sea front and the town.We stayed in two family rooms and each one was tastefully decorated, light and airy, and our teenage daughter was delighted to find that her bed was in its own separate area with its own TV. The breakfast was very substantial with plenty of choice and our hosts, Chris and Lisa were very welcoming. The provision of car parking was also a much appreciated and thoughtful touch. I will definitely be recommending The Cherwood to family and friends looking for a delightful place to stay.
