After failing miserably to find any other accommodation we were luckily able to book into this hotel last minute at 19.30hrs. We were welcomed despite just dropping by and asked if we wanted to choose our room. There was no alternative hotel available otherwise I may have chosen not to stay. It was dark outside so I couldn't judge the... More

We took a long week end break with friends. They had stayed at the Sun Bay before and were eager to share the hotel and general area with us. The hotel was a small privately owned hotel with wonderful sea views of Hope Cove. Despite it being March the weather was kind and the area allowed some magnificent walking and... More

Spent three night here. The room was very small and uninviting. Curtains flimsy. Windows seals broken and condensation in between panes, same problem in dining room. Bathroom cold as no heating there. Towels old. TV screen far too small and quality of picture unviewable. This hotel needs investment to bring it in line with their competition. Overpriced even having paid... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Sun Bay. Lovely little hotel with a welcome feel and fantastic views. Maureen and her staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very quiet which was perfect for us and our little dog, Buster. Nice food, I recommend the fish and chips. The room was clean and had a... More

Excellent food HOWEVER, archaic plumbing resulting in scalded head Toilet door didn't close Soap in toilet and bedside lamp bulb deemed non-essential and worse I was treated as a pariah for asking for them. Still searching for the advertised free wi-fi Still waiting for the manager to come back to me regarding the bathroom fan.
