Lovely location, you can see the sea from the window. The room was incredibly tired however, with a large crack down the main wall and stains on the ceiling. Very over-priced. Breakfast wasn't that great either, it definitely felt like high season hasn't started.

Only popped in for a drink and rest on the sun terrace, but would certainly consider staying here on another trip to our favourite Devon cove. The views down to the cove are stunning (just a short walk away) and there is a car park at the side. Menu was limited but something to please everyone and very reasonable prices.

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.

Just returned from wonderful stay at this Hotel. We found the whole experience first class. The staff at this family run establishment were friendly and always helpful. 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
