It's really difficult to keep this review short and sweet when there are so many things to list that led to us having the best weekend away we've had in a while. The staff were pleasant and friendly and couldn't do enough for us, even allowing a cream tea to be delivered to our room and collected the tray afterwards.... More

My husband and I spent Christmas at the Soar Mill Cove. It was our second visit, so we knew we could count on a good stay - and we certainly weren't disappointed. The welcome was great - they remembered us and we were greeted very warmly by the Makepeace family and Matt on reception. The room was beautiful - we... More

We stayed at Soar Mill Cove just before Christmas as a short break from home. We live on the Isle of Wight. We loved it. Thought the room, service, food and pool were excellent. Unfortunately on the third day of our stay we lost our Border Terrier, Ella on the cliff walk to Salcombe. We were as you can imagine... More

It was such a shock and very upsetting to us all to hear that you had lose Ella, the news of her return was very exciting, I can’t help but think of how I would feel if Farley or Daisy went missing! It just shows that miracles do happen and I’m delighted that Elle is now back where she belongs.... More

I stayed here last night for my wedding anniversary and the suite with sea view was lovely, the welcome was warm and things seemed to be going well. We went to dinner and it was quiet at this time. I ordered crab with marie rose sauce for starters, the sauce was a smear on the plate and was not enough... More

So glad that you enjoyed your accommodation and delighted we were able to surprise you with a free upgrade to a beautiful sea view suite, perfect for your anniversary. All of the reception team were a tad surprised to read that charged £250 and then £14 for breakfast, when in fact your rate was £179 to include the suite, full... More

This is found at the end of a rutted and narrow road but is worth the journey because the setting is lovely, staff are in the main friendly and helpful and our room was excellent (a semi-suite of two rooms). The meal we had in the evening was a bit pricey as the portions weren't huge but breakfast was good... More

This is the place to get away from everything. Even in a dark October, the position was fantastic.This is a low-profile mostly single-floor hotel almost on the cliff edge over looking a small cove on the south Devon coast. Access is advertised as challenging - well the last 100 yards are a bit rough (not the Hotel's fault), but the... More

Such a well hidden stunning location as you arrive off the lane. Hotel is modern and has such fabulous views! We had a very comfortable room with lovely sea views and it's own little patio. Well appointed with a modern bathroom, would like some lighting around the dressing table to do makeup though!! All the staff were very friendly and... More
