Been here many times and its good. Service ok food very good but not cheap since new chef arrived. Dare i say Salcombe Harbour Hotel is better value for money on food. The bar area is small but the fire is great with the beach right there infront of you.

Went for my Fiance's work Christmas do and stayed over. The staff was so attentive and couldn't do enough for you. The food was yummy, although could have done with some more Veggies. Our room was v large and beautiful.

We stayed at this delightful hotel for just one night and it wasn't long enough. The staff were friendly and very helpful and made us welcome. The hotel is right on the beach. When the tide is in we could hear the waves on the beach from our room and enjoy the sunrise over the water. Our room was was... More

First time in years we've had such a great experience on a short winter break. We only planned to stay one night but as we enjoyed it so much we booked another to ensure we ended the holiday as we started- perfectly. We had our dog with us and I was dubious that the 'dog friendly' room would be a... More

We visited South Sands for one night to recover from a busy Christmas period and this was the ideal place for some much needed peace and quiet. The hotel is tucked neatly into South Sands cove and you can be on the beach in a matter of seconds. The hotel is beautifully designed and really does have an art /... More

What a lovely hotel. Stayed here for two nights between Xmas and New Year in a beachfront suite. Dog came too and the suite was ideal for a family. Luxurious, spacious and comfortable. Staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth its place in the top 100 hotels of the world. Can't wait to stay again.

My partner and I had a wonderful 3 day stay at South Sands over Christmas. We brought our small dog and all three of us were looked after excellently by the wonderful staff throughout our stay. We booked a 3 night package around Christmas Day and including Christmas meals and all the trimmings. Really nice food and menus to enjoy... More
