Booked a 4 day break, this place is excellent value considering we paid £75 for dinner bed & breakfast. Our room was great. Food is excellent especially dinner and we are foodies. Staff are friendly and helpful. Met several couples while were staying & several of them had been before and we can understand why. This hotel is a 3... More

Booked on a rate which included dinner & was excellent value. Food here is amazing. We had a spacious bedroom with fantastic view, decor is lovely and bed was very comfy. The dining room, bar & reception areas are very modern with lovely contemporary decor but the lounge does look a bit old fashioned. Wifi was good & free and... More

Smelt musty and of cigarettes, carpet just outside bathroom soaking from leaky shower, scuffed walls, stained cushions, light bulbs not working, pile of cigarette ends on balcony and ash everywhere, holes all over the walls and that was...

We booked in here for one night We were given our room and found it to be haunted by a rather musty damp smell We complained to the receptionist who immediately offered us a superior room in the new wing This was a bit better clean and tidy but still had a funny smell possibly the cleaning product used.

AMAZING VIEW'S, AMAZING FOOD, AMAZING STAFF, AMAZING VENUE. The AMAZING list goes on and on at Sandycove. We had our wedding here on the 1st of August 2015. After searching through all the wedding venue's of North Devon, Sandycove ticked all the boxes and more. Tucked away on the rugged cliffs of the North Devon coast, this has got to... More

Stayed 2 nights at sandy cove for our friends wedding. The wedding itself couldn't have been nicer. However, I felt disappointed with our room as it was really small (for a double) and claustrophobic as our window faced a wall. The wardrobe only had 2 hangers in it and the cups and spoons for tea of coffee were dirty. Despite... More

Just had a 2 day family break here which was excellent. Our room was lovely with an adjoining room for our teenage children. Bed was extremely comfy and room was clean and looked like it had been recently refurbished. Food here is outstanding, can't praise the chef enough! Staff were friendly and there was a lovely chilled atmosphere in the... More
