Hi Graham thank you for your very positive review. As you say no road noise keeping you awake at night, just the abundance of wildlife. The golf courses, as e have two of them, are challenging but in great condition year-round. Our head chef Rob was born and bred in Brixham so yes, he does know his fish, which is market-fresh and delivered to the door each day, then works his magic on the flavours and presentation. If you did have the fish platter, great choice. If not maybe next time. delighted you enjoyed your breakfast, always a great start to the day. Will pass on your thanks to the housekeeping team keeping the cleanliness upto a high standard. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future
