A warm welcome, in the cool of early March, was followed by a very comfortable stay with excellent food charmingly served, and a high level of service throughout with the sole exception of some forgetfulness on the part of our chambermaid.

One charming, thoughtful touch was the spray of... More

I have to admit to staying at Thurlestone Hotel on several occasions and each time, my wife and I, have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The welcome is excellent, the rooms always spotless, while the lounge is comfortable to relax in, or even enjoy a cream tea. We are not golfers so walking is what we want, the walk to Hope... More

The hotel has a lovely charm not too modern but like a real country hotel. The bedroom we had ,had a lovely balcony and large sitting area and it... More

We had Xmas lunch here 2014, I will start with the negatives, trying to get a drink once in the dinning room was a lengthy process,nearly finished the main before the wine arrived.The Brussels sprouts were like bullets,why does every chef in Britain think we like them...

We felt at home from the moment we arrived with the warmest of warm welcomes then up to our wonderful room with a sea view, large... More

We spent the weekend - Friday/Sunday - a 'significant' birthday treat for my husband. from close relatives. They have stayed at the hotel several times before. The hotel oozes relaxation. It has amazing views from many of the bedrooms as well as the dining room, lounge & bar. The qualities of the staff are outstanding; welcoming, accommodating, engaging - each... More
