Lovely hotel with AMAZING FOOD! Stayed here to celebrate by boyfriend's Grandparents 80th Birthdays, the hotel was very accommodating and made sure we all had rooms close to each other. In total there were 15 of us and every night dinner was served quickly and was such a high standard.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The sea view deluxe rooms were spacious and spotless. All staff were very obliging. The food was amazing. The chef altered certain dishes to suit my taste without any fuss. This made my stay very special. The lounge where coffee is served after dinner is very comfortable and plenty of room. The gardens are... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for 5 nights on DBB terms. It is without doubt one of the best hotels in the west country. We had a very slight problem associated with our first room and we were moved to another, larger suite without quibble or fuss once the matter was brought to the attention of the manager.... More

We had a mini-break and in the great weather we had the hotel was fabulous. However, in average English weather then I think we would have found it very over-priced albeit that the food and room were up to expectations.

Excellent except allowing spa retreat pool to be taken over by children playing ball games. Everything else, especially the meals were excellent, Service was very friendly. Rooms well appointed and comfortable

This gem of a hotel is nestled in the quaint and beautiful seaside town of Thurlestone, with a majestic view of the South Devon coastline - what a find! My fiancee and got shut out on B&Bs in Kingsbridge (~9 miles away) due to a wedding, so we lucked into 4 days at the Thurlestone. It is an exquisite historic... More

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.

Dear Melvyn P, Thank you very much for such a good review and I am very glad you enjoyed your visit. For the sake of clarity, I would just like to point out to TripAdvisor readers that the hotel does have its own 9-hole golf course, which is very popular and free to all guests. In addition, we have negotiated... More
