Just returned from 4 lovely nights at Sandy Cove. Staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. We had a sea view room for the first night. What a view. The room is in need of a little tlc (room37),but considering the price not really an issue and I suspect this is on their redecoration plans . We... More

Neither of us are big eaters so we decided to just take the bed & breakfast offer, but we did end up eating from the bar menu every night. Great choice and very reasonable prices I had the mussels the first night, my husband had the Hunter's chicken, very tasty. The second night we both had fish & chips. The... More

Had a brilliant stay at this hotel a couple of weeks ago. The views from the decking are amazing, the weather made it even better, so we could sit outside until 10pm. The food was amazing, I particularly enjoyed the burger. All the family loved the bar menu. Woolacombe beach was a great place to visit and I would recommend... More

Booked a 5 night stay in a superior sea view room. Arrived and could not believe the amazing view! We had a lovely welcome and were directed to our room which was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The hotel has a lovely warm and relaxed atmosphere and everyone is very friendly. The food is great and we had an excellent stay,... More

This hotel is in an excellent location just outside Illfracombe with amazing views over the water, lovely garden, covered outdoor pool and spa area. We arrived on Saturday morning knowing our room would not be ready, the lady at reception let us leave our suitcases there so we could go and explore in the car. On our return after what... More

Bring in the hotel inspector, they need her wealth of knowledge and experience. Firstly it has just cost £180 per night for 2 adults DB@B, for one night, in a so called sea view superior room, therefore you would expect great service and quality. the best thing about this hotel is the fantastic position, and amazing views, this is what...

Have visited Ilfracombe before but this was our first visit to Sandy Cove. Booked a standard seaview room which was very comfortable and had an amazing view. We loved the food it was really tasty and well presented and the staff were also very good. The decor of the dining room & bar was lovely, contemporary and very much to... More

Had a 3 day break, we stayed in a standard sea view room.This is our second stay. We tried to get a superior room but they were all booked. They had some suggestions of places to visit in the room notice book and we went down behind the hotel to Broadsands beach. It is over 200 steps down to it,... More

Stayed 4 days here. The weather was excellent. We travelled round in the mornings but came back just after lunch and stayed around the pool. It was a great package that we booked on, both our children are under 5 so there was no charge at all for them and they even had their meals free as well. We stayed... More
