Positive Reviews

Excellent dining

Guests consistently rate the standard of dining at the Edgemoor Hotel highly, finding the food is of excellent quality as well as being well cooked and nicely presented. Guests also comment on the welcoming staff and friendly atmosphere, along with the value for money offered by the various menus.

Appealing location

Reviews indicate that guests appreciate how nicely the hotel grounds are kept, as well as how the setting is convenient for those who wish to explore the area. Walks through the national park are an obvious activity, although many guests also take the opportunity to visit the towns along the coast.

Comfortable rooms

The rooms at the Edgemoor Hotel are found to be well maintained and to offer comfortable and clean surroundings. Guests also find the accommodation is spacious and contains all the necessary amenities. Guests who stayed in a dog-friendly room were also pleased with the standards on offer.

Negative Reviews

No guest lounge

A small number of guests mention that they would have liked to have access to a guest lounge. Instead, there are just two sofas in the bar with the rest of the available seating in public areas limited to tables with upright chairs.

High bar prices

More than one review of this property suggests that you might be in for a rude awakening when it comes to paying for drinks at the bar. The examples that previous guests have given do indicate that the prices are on the high side.

Some criticisms of the bathrooms

While guests are typically pleased with the bedrooms, a number of issues are reported in relation to the bathrooms. Some guests simply found them a little small but others raise specific concerns such as noisy bathroom fans and poor water pressure for showers.
