Have just got back from a 3 night stay in one of the Beach suites with my wife and 2 kids, 15 and 19. Really lovely location, great room, fantastic view, fantastic bar and restaurant. But above all 1st class who couldnt do enough to be friendly and helpful. The new Head Chef cooked a completely bespoke meal for my... 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

Been for dinner several times now and it is always excellent. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and beautiful food. Haven't stayed in the hotel itself but the bar is also warm and welcoming and a great haven after a blustery coastal walk.

Recently stayed 3 nights here in a beach suite. The accommodation was excellent, very clean, everything worked, everything was re-stocked every day. It did help that the weather was amazing ! I have stayed here before and found the staff a bit inattentive but that was not the case this time. I think that maybe they have a lot of... More

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon. Fabulous location and our room was great with an amazing seaview, including a lovely bath in the middle of our room. Unfortunately the staff didn't match up to the hotel. Erratic service in the restaurant and very surly service in the bar, even to the point of dismissing the customer's views, and not... More

As a very regular business traveller I have stayed in hotels in around 90 countries and I would be hard pressed to find a better one than this. The location is fantastic (if a little excitng to drive to). The hotel exudes style in the modern finish, the staff are quick attentive and interested in making your stay memorable. Rooms... More

We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate a special birthday, - there were 6 of us - and it was a great experience. Room 8 is a lovely room with wonderful sea views and very comfortable. The restaurant has great views too, the food was good, the staff friendly and welcoming and there is a sea ferry from the hotel... More

My family own the pink holiday cottage right next to the hotel on the same level. (The Crab Pot) This year it has been much easier to recommend the hotel facilities to our guests because the service has become professional as well as friendly with the arrival of new manager Charles Erleigh and many other attentive and interested staff. I... More

This hotel comes well recommended. We stayed for a weekend break in one of the Beach Suites with the dog. The whole hotel is tastefully decorated and there is secure parking. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food in the restaurant was truly excellent and reasonably priced. With our dog, we were seated at a table on the... More

We have visited the restaurant at South Sands on many occasions and cannot recommend it highly enough. The setting is fabulous as it directly overlooks the beach. You can also eat outside on the terrace. The menu has been inspired by Mitch Tonks who is a local celebrity chef (also try both of his restaurants in Dartmouth, the Seahorse and... More
