We stayed a Sandy Cove for 1 night, only wish it was longer. Superb surrounding, excellent gardens and the outside pool was like a bath. Staff were very helpful and the restaurant was superb. Take a room for a little extra with a sea view, well worth it to wake up to this view.

We spotted this hotel from an article written in the Telegraph about the best secret beaches in the UK. It worked out reasonable as the first couple of days weather was good and we went done to this beach called Broadsands. One tip is to check tides because when the tide is in the sanded area is small but when... More

Stayed here after booking online through Booking.com for a wedding. Expectations were completly dashed by finding we were staying in a Dorma bungalow building site with a great advert fot the hotel in the car park being a knackered out people carrier with flat tyres and builders material everywhere. The website stated it was a secluded lodge close by, ha!!!!.... More

Amazing hotel with a great location. Panoramic views, stylish, tasteful decor. Rooms are well maintained and clean & ours overlooked the sea. Food is of a very high standard and staff welcoming. A wonderful place for peace and tranquillity.

Attended a function at the Sandy Cove Hotel. It is in a lovely setting with gorgeous views of the sea. Unfortunately I have to agree with other reviewers, the service was pretty slack. The staff seemed rather deflated and not very welcoming. I asked for a glass of Sauvignon and was told they don't stock it. There was a choice... More

Breakfast, Excellent. Dirty and tired Room. Mould in Bathroom. Milk and tea bags not replenished on day 2. Food Cold & Undercooked. Serving time, too long. Bar Service - Terrible (please put people on a bar that have an understanding of the drinks that they are serving). Final bill was wrong, overcharged - rectified but only after questioning. Perhaps it... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a family room, it was great value as the children had free accommodation. The room was great with an adjoining room with bunk beds & a single bed and they even had their own tv, it looked like it had been recently decorated and all the curtains and cushions looked new. We loved it because... More

Beautiful views from sea view bedrooms, attractive dinning room and spacious sun terraces, with sun beds, ideal for sunny days, covered warm pool,enjoyable meals and friendly staff. Can be busy at weekends with weddings. Not city chic, with 2 lounges a bit dated, but well worth a holiday here with coast path behind the hotel for walkers.
