We popped into this hotel for afternoon coffee. The coffee was really average but it was wet. The lounge area was inhabited by friends of the management or possibly guests shouting at the television watching a rugby game. The advertised "free" wifi was impossible to connect to.

Yet another fantastic stay at The Sun Bay Hotel in Hope Cove. The staff are so friendly and the rooms have recently been updated and are most comfortable. The dining room offers lovely views over the bay. The food served was excellent once again. We shall return soon as we are always made so welcome.

Great service, beautiful location, lovely food, a little tired - perhaps more b&b than hotel but would definitely recommend. Approx 15 min drive from Salcombe on narrow country roads. Car park on site plus pay and display directly opposite. Staff very helpful and friendly.

I took my walking group to the Sun Bay hotel for one night only at the end of March and we were all delighted with our stay there. The staff at this family run hotel could not have been more helpful - arranging rooms and menus for 15 people entailed much e-mailing. All the rooms were spotless, the beds were... More

Beautiful hotel in a stunning location. Views are incredible and we took full advantage of the sun terrace overlooking the bay! Staff really attentive and friendly! Food was really good value all cooked fresh. We have already booked again for Spring!

We went back to the Sun Bay again after visiting the year before. It did not disappoint. Amazing location, really friendly staff and the food is fab. The weather was awful but we just hung out in the bar and looked at the lovely view. Will be returning again this year for sure.

We had a great night on NYE. A good choice of drinks from the bar and brilliant atmosphere. The meal was really good as well. Breakfast was lush. Looking forward to coming back in the summer as Hope Cove is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. I would definitely recommend the Sun Bay Hotel :-)

A very warm welcome on arrival, a card and fresh flowers had been arranged in our room on behalf of the staff. Our experience of the food was second to none, we had arranged to stay B&B, but ended up eating no were else, the puddings are very much recommended. The service provided by the staff of The Sun Bay... More
