The owners balance attentiveness with discretion, enabling guests to enjoy their stay, for leisure or business, with an emphasis on cleanliness, comfort, service and style.

They have a strong passion for the historic nature of the property and are committed to preserving the original building as an example of English Riviera architecture. Whilst also championing the local produce and environment of the English Riviera.

They seek to both support and champion the local economy and feature significant and growing amounts of local produce (food, drink, art), use local trades and suppliers and provide permanent (not seasonal) employment opportunities.
