We had exclusive use for the whole weekend. As a bride everything was perfect. Some of our guests arrived late on Friday, so the staff even put platters of food in their rooms as they'd missed out on a beautiful three course dinner. The venue is absolutely stunning, and staff were very helpful throughout. Everyone has commented on the beautiful... More

We had professional and friendly advice from word go, whatever we wanted Dawn and Lucie, our wedding planners tried to accommodate for us. It was so much fun having... More

We stayed at this hotel midweek for three nights. A secluded location, very hilly with a fantastic seaview. The room had an amazing seaview, light and bright but could benefit from attention to detail. Great value for money in November, however if you were paying full price the hotel looks a little tired and you expect everything to work. The... More

Room was bright, bed comfortable, bathroom modern and the view, WOW. Food on Friday evening was excellent, followed by a few drinks in the bar meeting family & other guests for the wedding, a perfect... More

We stayed here 15th 16th Nov 14, we checked in to room 7. Straight away my senses were on edge as we noticed a damp smell going up the stairs and then a strong smell of air freshener never a good sign. The room had a sea view and though the main bedroom had seen a paintbrush recently the bathroom... More

We had a wonderful experience at the hotel to celebrate our silver wedding. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food really was of an excellent standard, with imaginative and beautifully presented choices. Our bedroom provided stunning views across Combe Martin Bay, Exmoor and beyond. Can't wait for a reason to return, just had a great time.

Actually booked in to another local hotel but disappointed that it did not match up to the website. Looked around the area and came across the Sandy Cove, enquired about the possibility of a double room for one night, lady behind reception could not have been more friendly and helpful, showed us there last room (room 29). Had a great... More

Just spent a delightful time at Sandy Cove on one of their special offer D/B/B Get one of the balcony rooms if possible, the views across the bay is spectacular. We watched the Moon rise over the hill and it was magical. The restaurant is very attractive and serves excellent food and the staff are delightful. The hotel has a... More
