Location 100%, right on the beach - views of Salcombe Inlet are stunning. The staff are excellent, booking in was fast and efficient. The room was brilliant, very modern and perfectly presented. The view from the "Juliet" balcony was straight out onto the beach - stunning. Leave the curtains and shutters open and you can watch the view from your... More

The hotel is stunning and being able to open the door to the outside in the middle of the night and then drift off listening to the waves was.... simply... More

Definitely go the extra mile and have a sea view room - utterly fabulous sleeping with the double doors wide open and listening to the sea.......... only let down was the staff dressed head to toe in BLACK - way to old fashioned for a lovely New England/Shaker/Beach styled place

What a lovely way to spend a long weekend. A comfortable hotel, not too stuffy but everything done well. Friendly, helpful staff, good food and all in a great setting. Lulled to sleep listening to the waves. It really was wonderfully chilled. Thank you to all the lovely staff for making it a perfect break.

A relaxed break just after half term. Friendly staff, happy to help or chat. Food was just excellent. Crab in brown doorstep fresh bread. Wow. A room where you can hear and see the sea. In fact you could jump in. No don't!

Lovely hotel in an excellent location. You must make sure you get a sea view! The rooms are well decorated, fresh and clean. Staff are efficient, polite and work to a high standard. Good breakfast selection with something for everyone. We ate in the restaurant at South Sands and although the food was good It was a little overpriced. Would... More

On arrival after a 4 hr drive we were warmly welcomed by the reception staff and a very polite and friendly young man came along straight away and carried our bags up to our room. We had booked a sea view room and we weren't disappointed. We had two sets of opening doors with Juliette balconies. One in our room... More

Had one of the best sunday lunches ever here the other day. Choice was beef or lamb we both had lamb which was tender and delicious. Fantastic location right on the beach. Now the tides reach has closed this location should thrive. The only drawback is the single track road to it from Salcombe. Nevertheless well worth a visit
