2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had lunch here yesterday, beautiful spot but disappointed in the food. Very unimiginative and poor quality. Expensive too. Scampi and chips for an adult was same size practically as child's, just chips and 5 tiny pieces of heavily breaded scampi for £10. Service was also poor, unfriendly man serving who didnt even greet us, smile or say thanks when... More

We stayed here when walking the SWCP and both agreed that it was the best hotel we'd ever stayed in. Incredible location, right on the cliff path. We had a sea view from our room. But not just a sea view from afar, the water was pretty much right outside our window. It was amazing. The room was clean and... More

What an amazing location. Down a twisty, single lane road, down, down, down to the open up to a car park. Step out and you are greeted with some amazing views, a short walk past the hotel and you come across some rock pools. Once you have finished in the rock pools I would recommend a visit for lunch and... More

A lovely location for a peaceful break. The room was clean and tidy and the pub nearby served local ale and good food. The breakfast was superb. Local sausages and thick bacon. The location makes it easy to get to other attractions such as Bude and Clovelly. My wife and I will certainly come back again.

I stayed in March 15 and paid £50 / night B&B. This is a small, family run, country hotel, it is everything it should be and more. There is ample free parking right by the hotel. A bell at reception was answered promptly by a friendly, cheerful and efficient member of staff. My room on the first floor was spacious... More

Popped in for warming drinks and nibbles on a fresh February morning. Polite courteous and great service. Drinks were all served with a smile and offered good value for money. We loved learning about the history of Hartland Quay and the fact that it had its own bank in the early 1800's.

Took the day off to have a look at a property in Devon and ended up here for lunch.Never been before and what a setting for a hotel and pub. Rugged coast, lonely, well it was out of season, and as you walk through the door, friendly and welcoming. We had the local beer and hot mulled wine and ham... More

Having seen the mixed reviews I was wondering what to expect - but I needn't have worried. My room was clean, warm and extremely comfortable. I also enjoyed a decent breakfast and evening meal. The views are stunning - great location for photography! Overall, I recommend it

The Hartland Quay Hotel is a great place to visit, but it needs a few upgrades! The staff are nice, the location is amazing - right on the side of the cliffs and overlooking the sea and the staff are nice and down to earth. I saw pictures of this pub/hotel and thought it looked breathtaking, old and interesting. So,... More

Reasonable accommodation in a fabulous spot. Good service and okay food , rooms are a tad tired but comfortable. Seen all the stuff about flies but that's what you get on the coast ....Would stay again
