We had a lovely three night break at this little gem of a hotel. Having travelled far and wide we are fussy about where we stay and therefore have high expectations of the hotels we choose; Soar Mill Cove did not disappoint! First of all what a glorious location; unbeatable for those who like to get out walking and also... More

We have just returned from our second stay. It was as wonderful as the first time and lots of familiar staff faces to welcome us back.

Our rating is the result of a blend. The 5 star elements are: (1) The setting is beautiful. High, with the views out to sea. It feels remote as you rattle down the 2 miles or so of narrow road, leaving mobile reception behind you, eventually sweeping up the driveway . (2) The restaurant is a lovely large relaxed modern...

Over the last few years we have re-visited hotels and found a few of their special touches missing, obviously due to having to cut costs etc. Soar mill cove hotel however is getting better and better and on this occasion (our 3rd visit) we noticed a vast improvement to the leisure area and pool.

A friend recommended this hotel, and I booked for one night's dinner bed & breakfast to celebrate my husband's birthday (we live about 15 miles away, but driving around here after a good meal and drink is not advisable!).

The road to this hotel is narrow but it is short, and when you arrive, the view is exquisite. It is near the Coast path so there are delightful walks immediately from the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and the food was of the highest quality with emphasis on home made dishes, jams etc. There is a convenient washing machine... More

I rang to book for lunch. No problem. Just come. We did but were told the lunch menu of two courses for £15 wasn't available. The menu offered was very limited and not what we wanted. The people on the next table were in the same position. We will not be returning.

I’m sorry that you left so disappointed; clearly we made an advertising error. We are just about to launch a new exciting lunch menu with some very tasty sharing plates, in the hope that we can add something extra special to a daytime at the Cove. More
