Found this place on the internet we actually had to cancel 7 months ago & they kindly carried the deposit forward for us; its an absolute gem of a hotel. Location is breathtaking and there are lovely outdoor areas to sit and admire the view, really lovely to arrive and see people sitting out enjoying the views. Staff are welcoming... More

Spent 2 days at Sandy Cove Hotel, we stayed around the hotel on both days, didn't need to go out. The weather was absolutely brilliant. We laid out in front of the pool until lunchtime & then had lunch on the terrace. The swimming pool & the sauna & steam room are excellent, I don't know if this is a... More

We come to stay at the hotel in the beginning of June. From the pictures it looks amazing so we expected nice clean modern rooms. Well that didn't happen. The room was horrible. Like staying at my grate grans but 10 times worse. The room was out dated and dirty. We found a dirty sock in our dressing table draw... More

Stayed here for a weekend away with family. Hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere & decoration is modern and tasteful, there are a few areas that are a little tired but overall a beautiful hotel. Food was outstanding, we normally go to a 4 star hotel in South Devon & food here was far superior. The bedroom was lovely we... More

Great location lovely sea views, food and service excellent. However they have weddings on a regular basis with a disco in a marquee which plays very loud music until midnight which was extremely annoying. Room was OK but bathroom needs updating and the common parts need some TLC. Would go back midweek but not at weekend.

Now where shall I start, on arrival the hotel looks amazing with a truly fantastic setting and views. Check in welcoming and pleasant. Our room was very spacious with a sea view. I'm in the building trade and some of the recent renovations are not up to my standard. Screws missing out of door handles, noisy pump under bath for... More

Hotel is in a superb location with fab view of the sea, quite breathtaking as you arrive at the top of the drive. Our room was very good & great value for money. We arrived early and the friendly receptionist let us check as soon as we arrived as room was ready. We had a bar meal on the terrace,... More

Saw this on FB as they have a lovely new terrace overlooking the bay. Ten of us met up to go for a bar meal, the menu is really good and is well priced. Food was lovely and the new terrace is superb with lovely rattan sofas set facing the sea. The weather was beautiful and we ended up staying... More

I took my 87 year old mother with my daughter and grandson to Sandy Cove this afternoon for a cream tea. It had been highly recommended by a friend so thought it would be a perfect birthday treat for Mum. How wrong can you be!! For 6.95 each we had one scone, jam and cream plus tea. There was a...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and we have tried to contact you as we are very confused by this review. We always give two scones per person on a cream tea. We are so sorry about your grandson's ice-cream, if he did not like the raspberry sauce & you had told us, we... More
