We spent a while choosing where to go for what we hoped would be an ultimate cream tea and a highlight of the holiday: we felt completely... More

We've just spent the weekend here, and because of the poor weather we used the hotel and its facilities to the maximum. Thank goodness for the comforts of this tranquil place. We were here for my parent's 50th anniversary, and come Sunday afternoon we felt like we'd well and truly settled in for good! The owners have established that home... More

I couldn't fault it, lovely big room; Rosemary Rose, spotlessly clean, good food and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Walked to Salcome, 4 miles amongst wild... More

Thank you for taking the time and leaving such a lovely review.

Stopped for lunch on a beautiful walk from hope cove to salcombe ,very clean modern cafe open all day, hiker friendly. Coffee particularly good as was the prawn baguette , however at over £10 it's very pricey but you pay it as no where else close nearby, service was ok ,looks a lovely place to stay with far reaching views...

The views from the rooms are just beautiful: a clear view to the sea, facing the sunset too so even better. The room was nice, felt modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's only a short walk down to the beach which is secluded and pretty. The pool is small but fine and is nice that it's... More
