While staying in local St. Marychurch we spent three wonderful evenings dining at the Babbacombe Bay Hotel. By day a cafe and by night a Bistro the Hotel provided wonderful views over the bay situated on the cliffs above Oddicombe beach, excellent food, excellent service and hospitality and excellent ambiance. We arrived as customers and left as friends. We noticed... More

What a delightful Hotel - I enjoyed a simply stunning Afternoon tea with my parents on 25/7/15. Absolutely superb, the food was delightful and the staff charming. Put this on your 'must visit' list. I will certainly be going there again in the future and will tell other people to do so.

Wonderful boutique hotel. Newly renovated and modern but very cozy! Friendly sweet helpful staff! Great views and the indoor/outdoor cafe is gorgeous with delicious food and generous portions! We had family room- extra bed room with 2 twin rooms was small but suited us perfectly!

Having stayed at the Babbacombe Bay Hotel last year and having just revisited for a long weekend, I must say that this is a very special hotel where attention to detail is evident in everything they do whether it be the beautiful stylish rooms, the stunning lounge or the wonderful Bistro which now serves evening meals. The food is outstanding... More

Did not know how beautiful Babbacombe Bay was until we arrived and the hotel was just as stunning. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff were lovely, in the restaurant and in reception. Because of the train strike we had to book 2 extra nights which was very fortunate, thank you Great Western. We will definitely be going back to... More

We stayed in the Lyme bay suite, room is absolutely beautiful. Views are stunning. You just can't fault it. Lovely, modern, luxurious and spacious. The roof top terrace was just perfect to sit and have drinks and admire that view to die for. Hotel food is five star. Both our evening meal and breakfast were delicious, well presented and service... More

I was part of a large group who visited the cafe this evening- we were attending the leaving party of a number of work colleagues. The cafe knew the group's order in advance and that we would all be sitting down to eat simultaneously and despite this, I waited 54 minutes to be served a cold scone and a diet... More

I am sorry you think that we were slow to complete your order. When the booking was made we were told there would be a staggered arrival of 50 plus people over a two hour period. The fact that everybody arrived en mass and took a seat meant we had to establish where people were seated without a table plan.... More

Overall a clean, modern boutique hotel - lovely views. Negatives were: our friend's room (Room 3) was tiny, room's were not cleaned as Ellie the cleaner left for home at 1pm (!) food was nice in the restaurant - but loads of dishes were unavailable and the serving staff were clueless. WIFI only worked downstairs. Very hard to find staff!... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the hotel. I am sorry you felt it was unreasonable that there is not housekeeping available on demand but unfortunately because we are a small boutique hotel housekeeping is only available for a period of four hours. I understand that you were asked if you wanted your rooms cleaned... More
