What Guests Are Saying

Peter Morris


Yours is truly a boutique hotel, very much a home from home, with such a wonderful service. Also, your breakfasts are sublime, especially when served enjoying the spectacular views from the terrace!

Sheila Payne


What a pleasure to stay at your delightful hotel once again. I have been lucky enough to have now had three visits with you .. Spring, Summer and Autumn, and each one with lovely sunshine .. I guess you lay that on for your guests too!! Each visit has been a great experience, everyone is so friendly, just one “Happy Family” atmosphere.

Maureen & Alan Broad


Once again we write to thank you and your wonderful team for another great holiday. As always the hospitality, food and staff were wonderful. Not only that ……only Malcolm could have ordered the weather we got. How often does one spend October mornings having breakfast on the terrace and afternoons on deck chairs on the beach?!

Helen Lawrey


Thank you so much for another wonderful weekend staying in your beautiful hotel – Mum and I just love being there. For me it is always a rare opportunity to have absolute peace without the children for a brief couple of days. (Much as I adore them a chance to recharge my batteries is a real treat) The luxurious surroundings and style of the Blue Hayes and the friendly, personalised service make every moment a joy.

Pat & Brian Morris


We so enjoyed our stay with you this year , a magical place with superb facilities and such helpful staff. You have created an intimate deluxe hotel but with real family atmosphere especially from your staff and your attention to detail. So looking forward to returning next year.

Donald & Brenda Smith


What a great way to spend a birthday! Many thanks for making this a very special day, but also for making this a very special holiday – you have a very professional staff, warm, unfussy, skilful and efficient. We had a wonderful week staying at the Blue Hayes – everything a holiday should be.

Stuart & Christine Pyke


Just thought we’d drop you a quick line to say thanks for a terrific stay, a couple of weeks ago. You should be proud of your hotel and we will definitely be back next year all things being well.

Molly Davies


Of the many many places around the world that Bill & I spent on painting trips – 57 to Venice alone – Blue Hayes is the best. By a million.

Alan & Maureen Broad


A very big thank you to you and your wonderful team for another fabulous stay at the Blue Hayes. From the moment we stepped through the front door we know that the next few days are going to be very good and the hardest part is leaving it all behind. It is a pleasure to stay at the Blue Hayes and each member of your team make it very special.

Now our feet have touched the ground, we just wanted to say thank you so very much for your kind gift of Champagne and the lovely card (which we’ve framed) that awaited our arrival. It made out visit a very special one. We were so impressed with your hotel and the staff who looked after us, the food was excellent too. We had a very special honeymoon with you and are sure we’ll be back again one day in the not too distant future.
