After another frenetic term I craved peace, sea views and exercise- Soar Mill Cove was perfect. Birdsong and distant waves, the occasional bleat of the roaming sheep on the hillsides and the sound of the wind in the trees. A terrific sea view of the cove- reached by a decent descent was only marred by mist on our first day.... More

This hotel is very pleasant and in beautiful countryside the cream tea was a bit expensive. £10 but the scones were home made as was the jam and it was plentiful. There were also delicious strawberries. The hotel itself looked very attractive and the service was as if we were with friends It was very warm and caring.

We spent a couple of very relaxing days at Soar Mill. What made this hotel so different from others is that it is an independent very friendly place to stay. The rooms (ours had a large bed and 2 singles ) was very comfortable. We had booked a sea view room but unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us and... More

I can agree with some of the recent comments about this hotel, but I had a wonderful welcome and bathroom! I do think that divisions between the patio areas could be improved to give a bit more privacy, perhaps with modern glass divisions. The restaurant is very attractive, clean and modern, and we had excellent service and the chef was... More

Having read the reviews I was expecting a lot . We had a great weekend, made by the location of this hotel and the weather .. Both were exceptional . The public areas are great , food good and Room (7) was good, private garden and loungers. The bathroom was a big big disappointment for a hotel of this quality... More

Having read and heard a lot about here, I may be guilty of setting too high expectations. True, the location is idyllic and really peaceful. The food was very good without doubt - I just think I expected something a bit unique or with a twist. What I think I missed though was either a warm welcome or attentive service-... More

We set ourselves our own high expectations with the aim for all our guest to leave feeling relaxed and well looked after; we have consistently had some excellent reviews this year, I’m sorry to hear that we were not quite what you hoped us to be. I’ll be sure to pass your kind words about the food to the head... More

Just returned from a 10 night stay at this secluded hotel. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the manager who showed us to our room which was called Jenny Wren which delighted my wife who's name is Jennifer! The room was modern and tastefully decorated with separate lounge area and patio doors with great views,sun loungers,wicker chairs and... More

It’s lovely to have such positive feedback about my team; they certainly deserve a lot of credit for their excellent customer service. I’m delighted that Matt my manager made you feel so welcome upon arrival, Jenny Wren is indeed a lovely room. I’m sorry that we did not have the bar fully stocked during your stay! Thank you for taking... More

Firstly it was a struggle to find where to order food, ended ordering at reception. I had posh fish goujons in brioche bun about £10. Goujons where obviously not fresh, over fried and the bun was far past stale, I could hardly bite or rip it! Chips cooked 3 times were disappointing. My partner had Cheese n Tom baguette, which...

I’m left a little shocked by this review; Faulty Towers we are certainly not. We are very proud for what has been an incredibly successful year, winning awards for “best front of house team” and maintaining our 2 rosette’s in the restaurant for a 16th year. I’m wondering if this review was meant for Soar Mill Cove Hotel. More

We stayed at the hotel in early june for 5 nights, the fabulous view that greeted us was stunningly good . The hotel itself was a little bit disappointing. Our room was nice and clean but the bed was very firm and not very comfortable and our shower was next to useless there was very little pressure coming through, when... More

The hotel indeed has a stunning setting; it really is very special to look out towards the Edystone lighthouse. I’m sorry the bed was not to your liking, we can on request make softer for you. The restaurant regularly receives positives feedback; it’s very disappointing to read your experience was not so much enjoyed. More
