Excellent value, good service, wide choice of dishes. £11.50 for 2 courses, including tea / coffee served in comfy lounge. Stunning views, comfortable dining room. Much better than a meal eaten at another local hotel earlier this week that cost nearly 3 times as much. Will I go again or recommend? Definately!

We have just returned from a lovely break at Whitsands Bay. What a beautiful place, sporting a wonderful Christmas tree and decorations at this time of year. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The views are wonderful. An excellent place to relax and unwind. We will return.

The Whitsand Bay hotel is situated in a stunning location. It is a grand old building with a welcoming atmosphere. Somewhere to relax and enjoy the stunning views along the south coast of Cornwall. The hotel is in a peaceful location but close to the main routes into Devon and Cornwall and easy access to Plymouth. It has an indoor... More

Bathroom a little cramped but we weren't planning on being... More

We have just returned from a very enjoyable 3 day break at this hotel. We took up an offer sent to us by the hotel following a previous stay there earlier this year. Once again we were greeted by very pleasant members of staff who made the booking in easy and we were in our rooms and unpacked within minutes.... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights - special offer that the hotel put on. We were glad it was a special offer as we wouldn't of paid the full price due to the hotel being in need of slight renovation and rooms requiring general Maintenance and updating, however the 'old style' of the hotel is nice to see...

tripadvisor pulled my first review of this hotel as apparently I had not visited there. I did visit this hotel unfortunately and I have put in sufficient detail so it is obvious I visited the hotel. The hotel is not easy to find on a first visit in the dark as the sign is not very clear and there is... More

We have politely made direct contact to enquire about an actual date of stay and to establish more facts. We find it strange why you have chosen to withhold this information and continue to do so. We are also concerned after checking our records that we have no booking from any guest who lives in Plymouth in the month of... More
