An excellent hotel with a great range of facilities. Bedrooms very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Very good food. Staff welcoming and helpful. I especially enjoyed the peace and quiet of the gardens during my stay this time.

My mum and I went to Thurlestone hotel for a spa afternoon and had a fabulous time. We had lunch on the terrace first and the food was excellent. Really tasty, great service and great views.

We stayed here for 5 days as a large family goup celebrating a golden Wedding anniversary. The rooms were superb, we had a suite for us and our 2 children. Views were excellent. the food was amazing too. Great facilities with Spa and indoor pool and a heated outdoor pool. Lovely pub attached to the hotel as well.

The indoor pool and spa facilties are exeptionally clean and beautifully designed. The outdoor pool was lovely, and the poolside bistro was good, the chef was very accomodating, and nothing was...

Great outside pool area and kids club run regular activities. Good food and activities for adults too and beach a 5 min walk away, Been several times and always delivers. If I had one gripe it is the interminable wait for your drinks to arrive!

Dear Susie C, I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your week’s holiday. The ‘jackets at dinner’ controversy continues but the vote still veers towards keeping it, as the majority of guests feel it adds to the ambience during an evening’s ‘fine dining’. We try very hard to accomplish a blend of traditional standards and service with up-to-date... More

Had a lovely 4night stay in July. Room very spacious with lovely sea views and meals in hotel very good. Ask for a refurbished room on booking as some are dated and in need of decoration. The outdoor pool area is very nice and relaxing , with lots of sun loungers , and a bar area for drinks/snacks. The church... More

We were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary, my wife was only 12 when she first visited Thurlestone Hotel the very first time... We have been back quite a few times since for holidays.
