We've been to this hotel many times before so it was nice to return again to a familiar place although I felt it a shame that our return wasn't acknowledged in any way by the hotel. Over all, we had a great break but there are a few things that are just not quite right and let the hotel down.... More

We came to Thurlestone Hotel for my nephew's wedding ceremony and felt very disappointed to hear that when they booked the ceremony they were told 'yes' to various things they wanted (to use the room's sound system) but were not told it would cost extra until they had paid the deposit. Worst of all they were told (again after the... More

A massive thank you to you and your staff for looking after Granny, Mum and Dad on Sunday when having their Sunday lunch in your restaurant, they were over whelmed by the attentiveness and service of your staff, to quote "it was superb, out of this world, lovely, the food was fabulous along with the views" they could not praise...

Just over two weeks ago we had a three day break at the Thurlestone Hotel. We booked about three weeks before our arrival and were fortunate to be able to book one of the best rooms the hotel has to offer. We were very much looking forward to the break as I had recently had major surgery and we both... More

Lovely, gentle relaxed few days break with my husband and daughter. Just as good as the last time we stayed 5 years ago. Stunning views from our room. Very comfortable bedroom, good bathroom. Delicious food with charming waiter. Head waiter absolutely superb.

After a gap of 20 years always a risk going back to a hotel but we were not disappointed. The hotel has grown but kept its charm, our deluxe room with balcony was huge and had all you could possibly want. The restaurant food is superb, I missed the cheese trolley of 20 years ago but the chefs selection did... More

Dear EdwardB31, I am so glad you and your wife came back to the Thurlestone after 20 years away; there have been a lot of changes in that time and I am so pleased we came up to your expectations. I am delighted your wife enjoyed her morning in our Voyage Spa, which was completely revamped three years ago and... More

We came across the Hotel by luck as we were very stupid and didn't book anywhere to stay when we fancied a trip down to Devon on one of the busiest summer weeks of the year !! And we were certainly lucky as this Hotel was amazing ! Right from the start when we entered the reception area we were... More

Dear Helene H, I am so glad we were able to find a room for you – as you say, it’s not easy in the summer holidays and it is always advisable to book in advance, if you can! I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for posting a review, together with some lovely... More

Salcombe full for an impromptu stop over on way to Cornwall and this was recommended by friends there. Slightly old world but moving with times - drawing room was really tastefully and creatively decorated. Stayed in a family room with two dogs and a couple of children - not the best for a great rest but very practical. Facilities of... More

We were on our way with Freinds to eat in the Village Inn, which backs onto the Hotel. The Inn was thronging with both Locals and Holidaymakers both inside and outside after a day in the Sun. We decided therefore to have a Pre-Meal Drink in the Hotel. It has to be said, the Hotel has got everything in its'... More

A superb hotel, in a fabulous location. I must admit reception leaves a little to be desired, however once you get to your room and let yourself in (!) the first few minutes upon arrival are forgotten. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, with good quality, comfortable furnishings and impeccably clean. If you are lucky enough to have one of... More
