The hotel is in a lovely location. Our room had a beautiful view but the room itself was bare, old and very cold. The Bathroom was also extremely cold, no radiator in there and the toilet very cramped. The shower was also the type over the bath attached to the taps, so not ideal. The flat screen TV was very...

We would like to thank all the staff and management at the Sun Bay hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year break celebrated in style. Amazing food and spectacular views. The only downside was storm Frank! Hope to see you again soon

My partner and I initially booked a 3 night stayed at the Sun Bay Hotel over New Year and enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night. All the staff were extremely welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for them. We couldn't fault the food whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner it was all delicious. We stayed... More

Each year we try to find a different venue for a New Year get together. This year we came across The Sun Bay Hotel who offered an excellent value 3 night DB&B package over the New Year. The hotel has about 14 rooms many of which have a view of the sea. A programme of room refurbishment continues in January... More

We needed a last minute break to de-stress and our normal haunt The Hope and Anchor was full - we were in luck as when I phoned Sun Bay they said a brand new suite had just become available, and I have to say it was absolutely outstanding, sea views from all 3 windows (one including a delightful window seat...

Came to this idyllic coastal village for a spot of walking and to enjoy the views and food. This lovely hotel might not represent high end luxury but what it does represent is a great location, welcoming staff who like dogs and superb food. The breakfasts are hearty and delicious with a good evening menu as well. Will certainly come... More

A weekend break over Halloween for my Vegan wife and me. The hotel was clean and well presented although there were huge spiders webs almost everywhere but it was Halloween! Our room had a sea view and was compact but well serviced. The television was small but we didn't drive over 220 miles to watch television. The staff were friendly... More

I write and rate my reviews against the price. £150 for 2 adults and 2 dogs. This included a room with a sea view, dinner, bed and breakfast. Bargain.. The room clean, comfortable and pleasant. The view and sound of the waves made for a peaceful nights sleep. If you want 5* hotel pay triple the price and you may... More
