We stayed in one of their self catering "cottages" for the convenience of taking our dogs straight down to the beach without bothering other guests. Booked dinner and breakfast along with Christmas lunch (inc a trip to the Panto in Plymouth) for 4 days from 23rd Dec (2015). Cannot fault accommodation, service and food, situation there was fab (shame about... More

Would recommend the half board. This was our second visit in 3 years and I would recommend it to anyone, warm and friendly atmosphere with excellent rooms, well the two we've stayed in were very good, an excellent heating system meant we could thaw out after the cold winter winds in the cove. Once warm a fantastic menu with food... More

We've stayed here a few times and I've given enthusiastic reviews. I just wanted to go on record as saying that everything was as good as ever - the setting is wonderful, the welcome is warm and genuinely friendly, food and service are excellent. Rooms are large and comfortably furnished. I understand that some of the bathrooms are being refurbished... More

Thoroughly enjoyable stay here. Fantastic location near the coastal path with sea views from the lounge,restaurant and bedroom. Staff were really friendly and service in the restaurant was very prompt and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Food was outstanding. We had a bedroom with a patio that overlooked the cove. Bedroom was spacious and tastefully... More

Nothing better than knowing you went home feeling relaxed and well looked after! The team deserves a lot of praise for continually offering excelling service with a smile. Our new swimming pool has been a huge success, the salt water truly makes the swimming experience more pleasurable. I very much look forward to welcoming you back! More

All staff were extremely friendly and we were greeted with a warm welcome on arrival! However, we were disappointed by the room - the bathroom particularly, which was dated and the shower screen was filthy! I hope these rooms will be refurbished soon as I don't think they are currently value for money. We found the lounge to be a... More

We visited Soar Mill whilst walking back from the lovely cove. The weather was wild, the seas tumultuous, the clouds angry but all was calmed when we settled down for a warming coffee in their comfortable lounge. The owner immediately came to say hello and we were made to feel very welcome so much so that we returned for dinner... More

We booked this hotel via secret escapes and had a good price on it. If not then its a pricey boutique hotel. The hotel is situated at the end of a windy country road which turns into a lane towards the end. If you drove any further you would end up in the sea. The hotel is set on top... More

An excellent meal in a lovely setting to celebrate Christmas with fellow volunteers from Kingsbridge Information Centre. A good selection of delicious and plentiful starters, main courses and desserts. Efficient and friendly service from arrival to departure.
