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

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. We had a lovely welcome from the receptionist and our room was beautiful and really spotless. The views are amazing, I would never get tired of looking out at this. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and we felt they couldn't do enough to please us. The food was lovely with a... 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

My husband I have just spent two nights at Sandy Cove. Our room was one of two king sized bedded rooms with a lovely balcony overlooking Coombe Martin and the sea. It was fantastic particularly as the weather was beautiful. You could have been on the Italian coast. The staff were very courteous and the food was great although my... More

I recently returned from a wonderful family break at Sandy Cove. The food was great, I particularly enjoyed the juicy steak. My family relaxed I the decking after dinner - which was helped due to the amazing weather. I am keeping my eye out for late summer deals as we would love to come back for a week, as North... More

Had a lovely time at the Sandy Cove Hotel, it's brilliant value for us. We have 2 children, we found it very difficult searching the internet to find a hotel that's affordable for us as a family, but we were thrilled when we came across this hotel online. We didn't pay anything at all for our youngest child and only... More

Just back from 5 days at the hotel. Had a lovely time overall. Lovely big room with seating area and wonderful view. Lovely big comfortable bed. Bathroom was large. Had one or two minor problems. Curtain came off the rail and was fixed the next day. Bathroom light cover broke and fell down. The shower head did not fit properly... More

Booked this break on Laterooms to visit friends in Instow, the superior rooms were booked and we had a standard sea view room. It was very comfortable, is a need for updating but it was still good value for money. We only ate on one night at the hotel but there was a good choice on menu, big selection on... More

A very lovely and relaxing place to stay for a couple of days. The food was very nice and staff were so helpful and accepted our woof like a normal guest. Would definitely return. The lovely tall bar chap originally from the Mids was awesome!!
