We visited using a deal with Travelzoo, just to have some quality time away. The hotel is in an excellent position and it is well worth paying for a sea view. We were welcomed and shown our room and then were served a cream tea in the lounge area which was delightful. We had an end room which was spacious... More

We had a one night stay at this hotel on a Travelzoo deal. Our room was large, and well furnished. The bathroom fine, though in common with many hotel bathrooms the silicone needed replacing owing to black mould. We had a sea view room which is essential to enjoy the wonderful views in this unique location. It is very unlikely... More

From the moment we arrived at Soar Mill Cove Hotel we all felt we were about to experience something special, and any expectations that we had were exceeded. You arrive along a long spiral driveway and are then faced with stunning scenery and sea view. The reception staff were very polite and helpful at all times. All of the hotel... More

We purchased a voucher for this hotel through Travel Zoo, and it has to be said what a bargain. I'm never sure what you will get from a deal as I truly believe most times you get what you pay for. On this occasion I was so wrong we got what we paid for and so much more. Our room... More

It’s great that you were able to take full advantage of our special seasonal package and enjoy a short break with us. It really seems that so many aspects of your stay were positive, nothing better than knowing you went home feeling relaxed and well looked after. I hope that we get to welcome you back soon, please feel free... More

What a great find, meal was one of the best I've had for many years. The crab was excellent and the rest of the meal was top notch, credit to Ian the chef his cooking was really special. Will definitely return on our next visit to Devon. Very secluded and a great place to unwind.

This hotel is perfect for a short break by the sea! Friendly, helpful staff, a beautiful setting right near a secluded beach, and a wonderful, spacious room with a view to the sea below. There is a new indoor pool and sauna on site, plus a grass tennis court for the active guest. Loved the welcome cream tea!

A “perfect break” nothing better than knowing you went home feeling relaxed and well looked after. The new pool has been a wonderful addition to the hotel; I’m pleased you were able to make use of it. A Cream Tea will be waiting for you on your return. More

I booked this hotel for my parents for a couple of days and they have come back singing its praises. They couldn't speak highly enough of the quality of the room and the balcony. The breakfast was delicous, in fact all the food they ate there, including a cream tea on arrival and dinner, was outstanding. The service was excellent... More

What a lovely hotel & surroundings , very pleasant staff , great food , peaceful location , stunning views . All in all a great stay , had a minor prob with the shower & reported it on checkout & I'm sure it would have been rectified ( If cleaning staff don't tell management they can't fix it ) !!!...
