Raj Indian Restaurant on TripAdvisor

"Really enjoyable"

We were staying in the Holiday Inn so this was perfect as it's attached to the hotel. Saturday night and a few where in already.   Staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Free papadorms and pickles which was nice, followed by a great couple of curries and nan and some beer and wine, finished with coffee.
All round really good and would certainly come again.

TripAdvisor - "Loved it "

This was the first time I travelled alone and I cannot fault the hotel. 
This was the perfect place to come alone as it felt secure and friendly. 

Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was clean and tidy, cleaned daily. My room didn't have a balcony but it overlooked the sea and was just as good. I didn't eat too much at hotel but when I did was nice and large variety. The only thing let my holiday down was the weather... But obviously this is not the hotels fault! Pool was heated. The average age of visitors was older and I don't think I saw a family there when I was, so great if you want a quiet trip away.

I chose the hotel because of the beach location, it was perfect, beautiful beach front. I would like to visit again.

Raj Indian Restaurant on TripAdvisor

Reviewed yesterdayNEW

The service is excellent - friendly and interested, but without being overpowering - and the food is top quality. 

A good, value for money meal (especially with their 10% discount card).

Really feels like an evening out. 

We've been going there for years and will continue to do so. Great job.

  • Part of the Holiday Inn, the Raj has an outstanding position overlooking the ocean and serves an outstanding curry too. There is even a large terrace to enjoy the sunset.

Review - Raj Indian Restaurant

Visited the restaurant twice in a 5 night stay in early March 2017. 
On both occasions the restaurant was reasonably quiet and staff made us feel very welcome. Poppadoms with pickles plus main courses was plenty for us and we were offered mild, medium or hot variants of each dish ordered. 
The portions were generous and after, adding rice or a nan bread (garlic nan was beautiful), we had no need of a sweet.

Thank you for your feedback

“Short break holiday ”

Near perfect location right on a beautiful sandy beach.

The hotel is well appointed with good facilities and we'll trained, efficient staff. 

The beach is the wow factor whilst the hotel is smart, comfortable and affordable out of season.
