Fabulous location fabulous views. Hotel provides a relaxing stay although warning if staying on a family disco night! I was kept awake until after 2am. Great breakfast with plenty of choice. The hotel is in need of refurbishment, especially our bathroom (room 1) very dated and in need of mod cons, also a good clean would be good. Bedroom small... More

With a wedding in the offing near Hope Cove, we booked three nights at the Sun Bay, not really knowing much about it. The small, windy lanes of the South Hams certainly protect these villages from mass tourism which most visitors will agree is a good thing . The hotel is in a magnificent setting, with the beauty of Hope... More

Stayed for a long weekend in August whilst down for a family wedding over in South Milton. The hotel itself does need some work done in terms of refurbishment but I have to say that the beds were extremely comfortable and we had a twin room facing the sea, so the room we had was a good size - plenty...

Hotel has amazing views with large outside patio area Food was excellent and could not fault the staff who were all very professional and helpful Rooms could do with a little decoration but prices are cheaper than Salcombe so cant complain

We stayed in this hotel August 2015 for a few nights. Its a beautiful location, however the hotel was in a disappointing state. Smelly bathrooms, dirty carpets in the rooms and the reception, clearly needs investments and refurbishment. Hugely overpriced! The staff was not pleasant... We will never come back to this hotel again.. j

Another beautiful location. Sea view was perfect from our window. overlooking a small cove. Plenty of watersports going on but still peaceful and very friendly. Our dogs were made very welcome. Reccommended.

Hotel in excellent position. Breakfast very good with large menu and everything very fresh and well presented. Staff attentive and polite. Room tired and in need of updating. Bathroom desperately needs attention. Shower head broken - flush iffy - light over sink not working - all items which housekeeping should have flagged up and should have been attended to. Huge...

We booked a family room to allow more room for our extra wedding luggage. Found the room to be rather compact and poorly maintained. Badly cracked sink, damaged shower head, very poor hygiene ( dirty and sticky floor ). The dining room was rather dirty and the floor was sticky and stained.

We stayed here for a weekend in July. We arrived late and was given a room at the top of the hotel at the end of the corridor, it was very small and didn't have a wardrobe. We were able to manage with it as we were there for a short time but it wasn't ideal. The bathroom was very... More

We called in last evening for a meal and had a window table overlooking the sea with a fabulous view. It was quite quiet - people are missing out on a hidden gem. Food was delicious - the chef must know exactly what he`s doing. The four of us had different starters and main meals and all were cooked to... More
