A beautiful location, perfect service wonderful food and excellent accommodation who could ask for more. We chose to upgrade to a sea view room which had it's own patio with sun loungers, table and chairs, wonderful, unfortunately it was a bit too cold to take advantage. I would have liked to take the trip down to the beach but as... More

Wonderful to arrive here in perfect weather... The bluest sky and sea. We had taken advantage of a Travelzoo deal in the restaurant. We were not disappointed at all... It was glorious, from the glass of fizz in the lounge on arrival overlooking the coast all through the beautifully presented meal, just utterly delightful. Have in mind a little stop... More

I have been to Soar Mill Cove for walks and to the beach many times and I love the beautiful location. I have always looked at the hotel wondering what it was like so when I saw the Travelzoo offer I snapped it up. My partner and I were in much need of a small break. The views from the... More

Wonderful setting, lovely rooms, superb food and great staff. what more could anyone want? Family owned hotel, great attention to detail, choice of sea view rooms but all rooms have patio and chairs for outdoor seating. Large comfortable bed, water pressure not great for shower but this only weak point in what was a lovely room.

Although not spectacular rooms and accommodation , the cream tea and the evening meal in the restaurant was honestly the best I have ever experienced. The presentation and quality of the evening meal was exceptional and you would find it hard to find better!!! Overall very enjoyable and would return.

We stayed at Soar Mill Cove Hotel for two nights shortly after our daughter's wedding. Like others we took advantage of a Travel Zoo offer. We had a really lovely relaxing stay. Not the easiest place to find but once there you don't want to leave. We had a lovely garden room with loungers outside which we took full use... More

It truly was a deserved break for you both, although weddings are such exciting occasions they can certainly be very tiring. I hope that your daughter and new husband are very happy together. More

We enjoy coastal scenery, walking, excellent hotels and good food - we found it all here at Soar Mill Cove and all without needing our car other than to arrive and depart. We will certainly return in the not too distant future. The staff were wonderful and could not do enough to help.

We had hired a house in Dartmouth for week and wanted an extra night before returning home. This proved to be a perfect antidote to a fabulous but quite hectic week with our grown up sons and one of their partners. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and the setting feels immediately calming and relaxed. Enjoyed our complimentary Devon... More

It great to know you had such a relaxing night with us and it was worth your while staying on in the South West that extra night. The Cream teas are indeed delightful, I find myself having to give in to temptation now and again. I hope that when your next in the South West you can stay with us... More
