Our second time to The Sun Bay Hotel - a lovely hotel in beautiful Hope Cove. We spent a great New Year here with some family members and were treated like Royalty - nothing was too much trouble. The New Year package including 2 nights bed, breakfast, dinner and a 7 course New Year Celebration Dinner was excellent value. Champagne...

Having spent another Christmas at the Sun Bay Hotel just have to say how much we enjoyed it again. Meeting up with people who have stayed before was lovely. The service was still first class, food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Already looking forward to next Christmas!!

The hotel is comfortable, not swish but welcoming and the staff are a real credit- friendly, polite and helpful. The views from room 7 are amazing- easily as good as you would pay for in a...

Never commented on Tripadvisor before but then again I've never experienced such friendly service and attention to detail. Nothing has been too much trouble for the staff. The rooms may be a little beyond their best but they are clean and comfortable. This is great place to chill out and relax. Brought two dogs who were made to feel as...

This stay was a chance taken in light of some reviews. The rooms and public areas could do with an interior designer taking charge , however, the views are superb and we found the staff excellent , helpful and in particular the waiter totally dedicated to his job - he was a credit to the hotel - very professional throughout....

We had a fabulous weekend at the Sun Bay Hotel, staying in the balcony room with stunning sea views! Our room was first class, clean and modern with no problems. The staff were all excellent and very accommodating. Michelle, our host, was very cheerful and friendly and nothing was too much. Nuno, the waiter in the restaurant, was very friendly,...

Great location, and some very pleasant, helpful staff. So what went wrong? Lousy soft bed meant little sleep in a back room in need of tlc and a major refurbishment, including an ensuite whose door looked like a dog had clawed it to bits which you could contemplate from a loose and wobbly toliet. Not seat, a wobbly toilet. No...

Great for people with dogs as the place is ideal for walks on the beach. But once back at the hotel your pooches can even join you for dinner if you sit in the conservatory. The rooms aren't huge but have everything you need and fantastic views.
