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

Without the Secret Escapes offer, I dont think we would have found this gem. Thankfully we did and so we were able to experience this friendly, comfortable hotel. The location draws you in and the lovely staff make you feel special. (Nick from Barcelona deserves a special mention- his smile lights up the room and he never lets it drop-... More

We had a 3 course dinner in the restaurant and the food was amazing! Spent the rest of the evening in the bar. We... More

Superb location and well worth upgrading to a sea view room, staff were excellent and very attentive. We were blessed with super weather and is ideal for both relaxing and those who are at ease with the challenging ups and downs of a coastal walk. Cream teas were excellent with scones homemade scones and jam. Breakfast was joy with the... More

A lovely stay at this hotel, staff very attentive, probably the rooms could do with a little soundproofing and our hot water took an absolute age to come through. The restaurant we found was welcoming and the food delicious. We probably wouldn't stay a week as I think it maybe too quiet for us but for a short break was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights after booking through secret escapes. Location was beautiful. Hotel was clean and staff friendly and helpful. Would have loved to eat and drink here but prices were a bit steep for our budget. If your on a decent wage then its probably fine. One complaint we have is our room was below what we assume...

Visited this hotel with my partner for a short break. The hotel is very nice with stunning views to the front. The hotel knows the views are it's best feature and they really concentrate on this feature. The dinning room makes the most of these views. The staff in the restaurant were a little poor with the service. Some staff... More
