I have just returned from my friends baby shower at the dunes and just wanted to say what a great time we all had! The food which was an afternoon tea was amazing, we definitely had more than enough and were even provided with plastic tubs to take the leftovers home, and the staff were extremely accommodating!


We went for a meal at The Dunes last night. Love Italian food so was excited to try it out. Me and my husband arrived and was seated by a lovely member of staff and were offered a complementary glass of Prosecco. Lovely touch. Food was excellent. We will definitely be coming again. Prices were great. Staff were lovely. Can tell the young ones it’s probably there first job but by Xmas they will feel a lot more confident. Excellent service thank you and good luck. xx


We attended a christening today, what a lovely venue!!  Recently decorated to a very high standard.  The staff we great – they really went above and beyond (as the bouncy castle fail to show up) they help entertained the children with party games. One member in particular, who’s name I didn’t get, but she was fantastic organising the games!  The food was absolutely spot on too!  Will be going back for an evening meal, the restaurant looked amazing!


Beautiful hotel/restaurant, food is very good and well presented, the staff are very professional friendly and accommodating, very welcoming, really nice atmosphere all round, great for functions, lunches evening meals, drinks, family friendly can’t fault this venue , a must try 


What a lovely experience we had on our first visit. From the minute we arrived the staff were fantastic; welcoming, polite and courteous. The food was faultless, one of the best risotto’s I’ve had. If they can keep this up it will become a firm favourite. Well done to all of you


Lovely design of bar and restaurant and a really relaxed atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and greeted us, they were very attentive to us throughout the meal. The food was delicious, clean plates all around and we even sampled some desserts. I can recommend the Pannacotta!  ?Jordan was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome. We are looking forward to coming back soon. ? ?


We attended our nephews christening today and cannot thank the staff enough for their help and professionalism. The lady who organised the children’s games was fantastic and deserves a special thank you as does the young man who did magic tricks. The food was delicious and I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a family celebration


Absolutely fabulous venue for our daughter’s wedding on 24th October. Everything was planned like clockwork and couldn’t be faulted. The organisation was amazing and they were always willing to accommodate changes right up to the last minute. From the moment we arrived we were looked after and a special mention to Susie who made everything run smoothly. The staff were extremely professional and courteous. The food was five star quality – thankyou to the chef and his staff. The overnight accommodation was fabulous. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a superb venue for their wedding ( at VERY reasonable prices.


Myself, daughter and partner came to try out the food from the Italian restaurant as we had been told is was delish! When we arrived we were greeting very politely, my daughter was asking for juice and straight away he let her pick which one she wanted and put a smile on her face. Due to me being a fussy eater I asked for a few changes on the meal I wanted.. the food was absolutely gorgeous, we also couldn’t believe how cheap it was for such good quality.
