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

Spent a few days at the Thurlestone recently. This was our first visit as friends recommended it. We were not disappointed ! This hotel has been owned and managed by the Grose family for the last 100 years. There is a level of service that you rarely find today. The staff are all extremely friendly and nothing is too much... More

We stayed for a long weekend, three grown-ups and two children, a first visit based on the favourable Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed ion any way. The coastal view is superb and it is worth ensuring a room that makes the most of it. Every one of the hotel staff was helpful and charming, with the dining room... More

As a real Spa enthusiast, I naturally booked the Spa signature treatments for my daughter and I well before our check in date. (Tip- book early as these therapists do not rush treatments or cram in additional ones - booking essential for the longer treatments!) I have been to spas all over the world, and whilst this is not a... More

Having holidayed in the South Hams for the past 6 years self catering as a couple we treated ourselves to a 6 night stay on DBB inclusive terms a family suite with our 2 year old. I found the receptionist's welcome to have been efficient rather than warm and friendly - my partner thought the latter, however she did ask... More

I recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. The Thurlston Hotel is in an enviable position and has many excellent facilities. However, the management of the hotel is poor. On arriving the reception staff were polite but not particularly welcoming. I was not shown to my room which I would expect as a common courtesy. My wife tried to... More

Beth (the dog) and I went to the hotel for a break last week after an illness. It was amazing, everything was perfect, no room over the dustbin because I had Beth with me, we had a room with a beautiful view of the sea. We sampled everything, the indoor and outdoor pools, the spa treatments, ate in the dining... More

We stayed for a week with our adult family. Our previous visits were a few years ago. This hotel delivered on every level. The amenities were good for all of us. We ate in the restaurant most of the time and the food was excellent. One evening was very enjoyable in the pub. All the staff were very helpful, especially... More

Not staying at this hotel but we went for a birthday celebration dinner with friends and had a most enjoyable meal, but we found the greeting and lack of information a bit strange from the staff and lack of direction and timing with regards to dining. We still recommend dining at this hotel and the dress code is nice to... More
