We have stayed at the Sandy Cove Hotel several times and have always enjoyed the experience provided by the staff; from checking in through to the friendly attentive manner during breakfast & evening meal. We always book a superior room with a sea view, the rooms are very relaxing and the views breathtaking. The selection of food at both breakfast... More

There was a great choice of drinks and wine in the bar and a good terrace area with umbrellas at the front of the hotel. Location... More

Had a wonderful 2 day break at the Sandy Cove. We're both foodies and we spotted that they had got a second AA rosette, we weren't disappointed, the food was exquisite. I would say this food is the sort of thing you would normally expect in a small restaurant but we've never been to a Hotel with a standard like... More

We spent two nights at Sandy Cove Hotel and enjoyed the lovely setting, gardens and amenities available at the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, but there could be additional staff at busy times. We had a sea view room which was clean and perfect for our needs. We would definitely stay at Sandy Cove again.

Having given this hotel the benefit of the doubt after reading a few of the negative reviews, we decided to book a deal we had seen on late rooms, however after looking at the hotels website we were unsure as to which room we had booked. After ringing up this evening to clarify which room we would be staying in,... More

Thank you for your review, it is such a pity that you cancelled your booking because as you can see by other people's reviews, the view is stunning, we have just been awarded 2 AA rosettes for food & the vast majority of the feedback is very positive. You mention negative reviews, there are 14 on our site now, but... More
