We stayed at the Sunbay hotel recently and thought it was a lovely hotel. Inviting and friendly, the views from the terrace are beautiful. We had a cream tea which was a yummy as any other I have had in Devon and served with a stunning view. With regards to the rooms, they are what they are, comfortable and clean... More

We booked the hotel based on nothing but the internet and had the same family room which has been mentioned in many reviews. We also paid the £110 and stayed three nights which for us with a 11 year old wasn't too bad considering other options in the area which seemed to be much more expensive. Breakfast average, dinner (just... More

Just spent two nights at the Sun Bay Hotel, two adults and our dog. The dog was welcome in all public rooms (including the lounge) except the restaurant, understandably, although we were able to have dinner and breakfast with her in a lovely conservatory overlooking Hope Cove. Stunning location.Okay, the rooms are a bit dated and the food isn't going... More

Stayed here twice now in July 2013 and again last week with friends to play golf at Thurlestone. Since last year price of room has gone up from £80 to £110!! Quite an increase and no improvements. Made this year's booking back in April for 3 twin rooms. Despite this, on arrival 2 of our group were given a family... More

We booked a twin bedded room for 2 adults in April for 1 night in Sept. On arrival we were shown to a musty smelling Family Room (that's a joke) with 1 double bed and bunk beds. We were told there was no other room available! On checkout we asked for a reduction as this was not what we booked... More

I have to concur with other reviewers as we too had a very disappointing evening meal at the Sunbay during our holiday the week prior to the August Bank Holiday. We normally stay at the Hotel and have stayed there many times over the years and have had some very enjoyable local produce meals. This year though we opted to... More

Fantastic short stay at Sun Bay Hotel. Having searched the internet, we finally found this hotel. It boasted a great location and reasonable prices. After traveling down from London, we arrived at 'check in' time and were welcomed straight away. The hotel has a great lounge/bar which is open to late and a great restaurant, which offered a range of... More

This was our 3rd visit to Sun Bay. The staff were attentive. Whilst most of the meals were fine, there are a couple of things that would have made them better....we had crab and prawn stack to start which could have done with a bit more salad with it, the fish pie came with no veg and the beef brisket...

The table behind us had been waiting for food for one and... More
