A very welcoming hotel to all guests including 'doggies'. Easy ground floor access for our canine friends although accept they are not allowed into the restaurant and lounge. In a stunning position and great for walks. Wonderful food in the restaurant which deserves 5 stars, but the basic bathrooms brought this down to 4 stars.

It was lovely to welcome you and your doggie to Soar Mill Cove Hotel! This spring sunshine really is ideal for getting out and enjoying the beautiful coastline. I’m sorry you was a little let down with your bathroom, most bathrooms have been refurbished and we plan to complete the remaining few later in the year. I'll be sure to... More

We had booked this as a Travelzoo offer, and were absolutely delighted to discover this secluded luxurious hideaway at the end of a quiet lane. The staff were warm and friendly, and the cream tea on arrival was most welcome with delicious homemade jam. Although we had tried to upgrade to a sea view room but only garden rooms were... More

A gruff service followed by lukewarm tea, no water to top up, very small cream and jam portions . . And then a bill which was literally double what we normally pay. Our guests were treating us and we felt ashamed of what they were paying. Never again will I go to this overpriced and pretentiously stuffy hotel.

Our Cream Teas are famous amongst many for being the best in the South west, delicious homemade scones, homemade jam, clotted Cream, Strawberries and good old fashioned English breakfast tea. We offer Jam and Cream by the bucket load, for if you wish to have more you’re more than welcome to ask. I’m sorry if your tea was lukewarm for... More

Just spent the one night Easter Monday and what a find! Does annoy me when you read some negative feedback on certain hotels when really not necessary. I am very well travelled and the wife and I rely on cheeky weekends away to unwind and enjoy. This has to be one of the best finds ever! Already planning another visit... More

Thank you so much for taking the time and leaving such a positive review, I’m so pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. Trip advisor comes with its advantages and disadvantages as several of our happy guest don’t take the time to leave a review, which makes your review even more important. Thank you once again and I look forward... More

We have just spent our Easter break at Soar Mill Hotel,and were not disappointed.We got a friendly welcome by the owner and shown to our room by her daughter.The room (rosemary rose) was huge,overlooking the garden to the side of the lane.Doors opened onto a small patio with wicker chairs,only a few feet away from a bubbling brook.Perfect.

My husband and I have just returned from celebrating our 1st anniversary and had a lovely 2 night stay here. We took advantage of the Secret Escapes offer and probably would not have found this place without it.

With the eye catching backdrop of the bay around the corner from Salcombe and the friendly staff, this hotel has been my favourite visit recently. Family, run, we felt really welcomed by each member of staff, who were on hand to take care of anything we wanted. Details such as real coffee and real milk make this a hotel out-of-the-ordinary,...

We found the Hotel at the end of a lane looking out over Soar Mill Cove. A modern looking building kept at low level to not intrude on the rugged scenery. We were escorted to a very nice room and settled in. My new bride had purchased a package for the night to celebrate our wedding on the previous day.... More

We booked this short stay to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel is in a magnificent position, especially if you book a sea facing room. It adds meaning to the phrase 'splendid isolation' as it is in a very secluded and tranquil part of South Devon. We stayed for 2 nights. we were made to feel very welcome by the delightful... More
