8/10 Very good

The hotel has a nice relaxed, homely atmosphere. The food was good although did feel a little repetitive after a week. All the staff were good & some were excellent. I think the only point worth noting is the hotel was significantly more upmarket 10 years ago before Marriot took over. This upset some guests who had stayed in this time. However for me who had never stayed there before, I found the hotel good with nice rooms & lovely views out to sea.

6/10 Good

This was our second stay at The House, the first being in 2018 before it was taken over by Marriott. Unfortunately we felt that the service and attention to detail had slipped during this time. We had a nice relaxing stay but felt that some of the staff (not all), appeared disinterested in helping with any queries we had. We had arranged for a car to collect us from the airport (which had been confirmed via email) but upon arrival there was no car and the hotel said they hadn't organised it. They offered to pay our taxi fare but no apology was given. We had to ask for the toiletries in our room to be replenished on a couple of occasions (which would normally be done automatically), and the bathroom looked as though it was in need of some attention.The lunchtime service was sometimes slow and on one occasion we waited an hour and a quarter for our food. We asked the waitress to check it for us but she just mumbled something and walked away. Overall our stay was enjoyable. The food and drink was very nice and the location is fabulous. However I think when the prices are this high the service should be impeccable.

2/10 Poor

Expedia your agents prioritising to celebrate what I can only imagine was a Christmas party over putting my cancellation request through to this hotel has cost me £929.00. For 7 weeks (since December 15th 2021), hours on end your agents have phoned me to the “back office” to investigate resulting in further weeks of emails “requesting a further 48 hours to investigate”. This has gone on long enough, your service is disgraceful. Even with proof from the hotel giving consent to void the booking if Expedia (being the third party) cancel it their end, as well as the hotel making direct contact with Expedia to give them the cancellation emailed you still didn’t make contact within the requested timeframe (12hours).
