We chose this hotel to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Its a beautiful hotel in a stunning location, but it's the level of service and quality that really set it apart. We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded to one with a balcony, overlooking the golf course and the rugged coastline. Room was comfortable... More

First class hotel in every respect. Private and public rooms, situation and views all top notch. Highly recommended and looking forward to another visit. Thurlestone Golf Club a short walk and very welcoming. Salcombe and Dartmouth a short car journey. Local pub (owned by the hotel) has good food at reasonable prices.

The hotel is in the most beautiful setting and has some beautiful views, is a short walk to the beach which is lovely and quiet this time of year. We were here for a wedding which I can't fault that side of things, there was good service at the bar, great function rooms and good outside areas. However, the room... More

Our family have been going to this hotel as a party of between 13 and 17 people for almost 20 years. We had a gap of 5 years and went back this easter. Our room was fairly small but high quality with wonderful views and a nice balcony. The views are really stunning. The beds are very comfortable. The only... More

Decided to give this place a try having stayed in hotels in Salcombe before. Glad we did as there was so much to it that we will have to return. It's a very traditional hotel and to some extent I could say dated in the rooms, but the more I think about it, I think it was just the style.... More

We enjoyed a lovely Easter Sunday lunch at the Thurlestone Hotel and would like to recommend it to others! From the warmth of the welcome we received from the Restaurant Manager and all of his staff, the excellent service (attentive but not intrusive), the tasty food and the delightful piano music - everything was perfect.

Dear Capricorn 70015, What a wonderful recommendation – thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed your Easter Sunday lunch. It doesn’t have to be Easter, by the way; we also serve Traditional Sunday Lunch in the restaurant every week, which is very popular both with guests and non-residents. I do hope we see you again soon. Best wishes Julie... More
