We booked a family room to allow more room for our extra wedding luggage. Found the room to be rather compact and poorly maintained. Badly cracked sink, damaged shower head, very poor hygiene ( dirty and sticky floor ). The dining room was rather dirty and the floor was sticky and stained.

We stayed here for a weekend in July. We arrived late and was given a room at the top of the hotel at the end of the corridor, it was very small and didn't have a wardrobe. We were able to manage with it as we were there for a short time but it wasn't ideal. The bathroom was very... More

We called in last evening for a meal and had a window table overlooking the sea with a fabulous view. It was quite quiet - people are missing out on a hidden gem. Food was delicious - the chef must know exactly what he`s doing. The four of us had different starters and main meals and all were cooked to... More

I phoned to book afternoon tea, and to confirm that we could sit on the terrace with our dog. The receptionist was so helpful and confirmed that this would be fine and if the weather turned, we were welcome to take our tea in the hotel as they are dog friendly. The food was delightful and so beautifully presented, I... More

Stayed for a couple of days in Hope Cove. Weather was pretty decent and just a short stroll down to a wide and sandy beach, imagine its perfection for the children damming the stream which flows into it. The hotel itself is a relaxing place to have a coffee, a drink, a sandwich or a more substantial lunch, though the... More

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
