My first trip to Sandy Cove for a business meeting, lovely place and lovely owners. The terrace area offers some spectacular views and it really is such a calm escape and certainly an area I would love to come back too- for a short break this time! Just a shame it was a short visit but definitely shall be back... More

We stayed here recently on our way to Cornwall and have to say were disappointed with everything except the view (although the receptionist when I was checking out was very nice and friendly) Most of the staff looked completely disinterested and could barely raise a smile, and the food was dreadful. My husband had Slow Roasted Pork Belly and it... More

Loved this place, we stayed for 5 nights. Had a warm welcome when we checked in and were offered help with our luggage. We were very pleased with our room, it had an amazing view. The staff all seemed very willing to help and the food was good. I particularly liked the mussels as a starter and the salmon as... More

Had 3 great days at this hotel. We stayed in room 23 at the back. The room is dated but it was very clean and lots of room for the kids. We actually had a small room adjoining, which even has its own bathroom for the kids. The swimming pool was a life saver for us because the weather wasn't... More

Don't think we've ever been so disappointed with a hotel after its website promised so much. We stayed here for two nights (at a cost of £80 per person per night), and frankly I'd have felt the room was too expensive at half that price. Granted, there was a lovely view of the bay below, but that's not enough to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you liked the restaurant and enjoyed the food. We are sorry that you have not understood our website as all rooms are indeed graded and priced accordingly; you booked a standard room rather than a superior. We have 5 different grades of room to choose from... More

When booking, I was reluctant to build up my expectations too much in case the usual let down occurred, but no, despite an initial problem finding the hotel, my wife and I have been blown away with , the facilities, our bedroom with a balcony was well worth the extra few pounds. The room and facilities are second to none.... More

This is the second time we have had our family holiday at this hotel, they offer a great value package for families. We have 3 children aged 1, 4 & 7 years. We don't have to pay anything at all for the youngest two and we only pay £23.98 a day for the oldest. The great thing about this hotel... More

Visited this hotel recently on a family holiday, for an evening meal. The views were amazing but thats the only good thing that can be said. The meal took over an hour to arrive after we complained over the long wait. 2 of the 4 meals orders didn't match to what it said on the menu several items were missing... More

We had a beautiful room with a balcony and wonderful seaview. Good welcome and friendly smile when we arrived and we were offered help with our luggage. Overall the food was good, although we would have liked fresh fruit for breakfast and a choice of jams. Evening meal was good. The staff were friendly and efficient although there were a... More

Friends recommended this hotel to us and we can see why. We felt there was a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere from the moment we walked in, the receptionist was efficient and polite and offered us help with our luggage. Our friends had told us to try and book one of the balcony rooms but they were already taken when... More
