My friend and I went to celebrate Father's Day - sadly, on our own because all of our families were away. At first I thought "how sad is that" to go off on your own for such a simple event, but I am so glad we did! We had thought ahead to pre-order fresh Hope Cove lobsters, and everything was... More

Although staying three nights in another hotel in Hope we chose to eat here due to the lovely views. It was a Saturday and we fully expected it to be busy as the weather was good. in fact it was really quiet- just four couples! However our meals were excellent, beautifully presented, tasty and plentiful. I can thoroughly recommend the... More

Stayed here for four nights in a small room at the back of the hotel. As this was a last minute booking accepted this room. The whole place is very tired and really could do with decorating. The situation of the hotel makes up for any criticism. Staff are very welcoming although we only saw two whilst there. Cleaning of... More

Stayed here in March and it was just what we needed. Staff were lovely and all very chatty and friendly. Hotel has a nice bar area and restaurant that leads onto a terrace over looking the bay. The views are amazing. The restaurant food was gorgeous we had the steak one night and burger the next; both cooked to perfection.... More

Sun Bay is one of these places where you are enchanted by the friendly people working there. Keith, Judie and Julie are epitomes of friendly professionalism, which made us feel there at home. They helped us prepare and celebrate our daughter's first birthday in a fantastic way. Thank you! Just to add a bit of salt ;) - please show... More

We had a great couple of days here in fantastic weather. The hotel is on the quieter part of Hope Cove, just a short walk from the beach with lovely views. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended... we will definitely be back.

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.
