Friendly and attentive staff. The chef clearly knows what he's doing.. We ordered the rump steak and two roast duck. Which were all cooked to perfection! The duck in a cherry sauce was amazing, full of flavour and cooked as the customer orders (which in my case was well-done and it was cooked perfectly). The chef truly made our evening... More

The Sun Bay is a nice place to stay. It's comfortable and welcoming and the location could not be better. It's not the smartest hotel and improvements could be made, but they allow dogs and there's a relaxed atmosphere. Overall it makes a great base to explore beautiful Hope Cove.

I treated my daughter to lunch yesterday 08/04/15, and we weren't disappointed. We haven't been to Hope and Anchor for just over a year, and wow we really were impressed by the tastefully refurbished Pub. The new extended outside area is where we chose to sit, completely relaxed and a great atmosphere, good attentive and chatty staff. Our drinks and... More

A great location, and friendly staff made our Easter weekend most enjoyable. Our room was basic but functional, the breakfast was very good, and the bar area was clean with fantastic views. We chose this hotel as it is dog friendly, and we would stay there again.

Delightful location with views over Hope Cove from most of the rooms, from the lounge and from the terrace. Wide choice of delicious cuisine. Willing, helpful staff. Dog friendly. A gem of a small hotel.

The hotel enjoys a great location overlooking Hope Inner Cove with great views from the lounge, dining room and bedrooms. The food in the restaurant is first class so much so that we... More

After failing miserably to find any other accommodation we were luckily able to book into this hotel last minute at 19.30hrs. We were welcomed despite just dropping by and asked if we wanted to choose our room. There was no alternative hotel available otherwise I may have chosen not to stay. It was dark outside so I couldn't judge the... More

We took a long week end break with friends. They had stayed at the Sun Bay before and were eager to share the hotel and general area with us. The hotel was a small privately owned hotel with wonderful sea views of Hope Cove. Despite it being March the weather was kind and the area allowed some magnificent walking and... More
