Visited whilst attending a wedding nearby. The hotel is in a fabulous location, with great views, easily appreciated from the terrace, pool roof seating area (with delightful garden furniture), or from rooms with a sea view. We received a delightful and efficient welcome on arrival at reception. The stairs to the first floor in the original building are awkward, and... More

Stayed here in August in a family room. We have 2 kids under 5 & I was most surprised that they don't charge you anything for them. It makes holidaying affordable, everywhere else seems to want to get as much money from you as they can in kids holidays. Our room was great. We loved the swimming pool and the... More

Found this on the Internet and booked a bed& breakfast stay. We have 3 children & found this hotel very family orientated, we had a beautiful room with an adjoining room for the children who even had their own tv. The rate was extremely reasonable as they don't charge children for staying. We ended up eating in the restaurant every... More

This was a last minute 1 night escape which at first glance was a great choice. A superb location and view, however the service and standards of the staff along with the breakfast were well below standard. This place could be absolutely remarkable, but sadly it's completely not. The owners should invest in some serious training and perhaps get some... More

We stayed at Sandy Cove Hotel for two nights in August. This was to be a treat and as I am awaiting a knee replacement therefore we requested a ground floor room. We were allocated room 29! Absolutely appalling! It was right next to reception with people walking past continually. This was no more than a garage conversion! Peeling wallpaper,... More

We got married here 15 years ago & we try and go back every year for our anniversary. This time we had brilliant weather so we really enjoyed sitting around the pool in the afternoon. We had a lovely cream tea on the terrace which is new since our visit last year. Evening meal was lovely we always enjoy the... More

It's a friendly relaxing hotel and all th staff seemed happy. We were... More

Beautiful setting. Lovely breakfast. Arrived late after our wedding day and hadn't preordered wine but missed the bar and unfortunately our request couldn't be accommodated. Friendly staff. New pool looked lovely. Shower left a lot to be desired!

My partner & I have been coming to this hotel with our children for 6 years now we have never written a review before but when I read some of the negative reviews thought it was only right that we wrote one! This a beautiful hotel in an amazing position with stunning views. They had always had a dome over... More
