The cove itself is beautiful and we were impressed with our room in the hotel. The hotel was very clean and staff were very accommodating. The staff tried their best to cater for my severe peanut allergy, however couldn't provide basics, such as bread at breakfast. Also, we ordered fish and chips in the restaurant and were served fish and... More

We visited here yesterday after having a nightmare of a time at the Hope and Anchor 2 minutes down the road. We both had 3 courses for £20 per head. Food was lovely, friendly service was second to none and they turned a disastrous evening in to a truly lovely one for which my partner and I are very thankful.... More

We have just returned from a 2 night break at the Sun Bay, our 4th stay and we will be returning. Set in a fantastic location the hotel is relaxed and friendly with stunning views. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, who are extremely helpful and pleasant and when they say 'dog friendly', they really mean it. The... More

The restaurant has fantasic views of Inner Hope Cove.The food was very good, if rather pricey, and the service excellent. We'd had very good value last year but prices had increased considerably since then. We asked the manager who served us for decaf coffee and weren't informed that they only had instant (which we would have declined). In the event... More

We chose Sun Bay because we had a 2 for 1 cream tea offer at a neighbouring hotel but didn't like the look of the latter as a place to stay. We reserved the most expensive room, newly re-furnished and with the addition of a balcony. There were no photos of the conversion on the website, but the room was... More

We had a long week end with friends who had visited before, looking at Tripadvisor we would not have chosen it ourselves. We were advised that it wasn't luxurious but the location was fantastic so we decided to take a gamble.We booked the refurbished room with the balcony so were not expecting to be disappointed. Upon arrival the hotel makes... More

Love the area and the fact that they allow dogs. However the hotel is very expensive for a tiny and tierd room. No phone in room, tiny tv no access to WiFi. Whole hotel needs a good makeover. Breakfast was good but again you would expect a bit more for your money. Staff however were polite and efficient.

We had very good crab sandwiches on the terrace and enjoyed the sea view. The service was a bit slow but we were in no rush so we just enjoyed the views and after being refreshed we walked on to Hope Cove which is only half a mile away.

manager impolite, thought nothing of having a party down in the lobby, keeping guests up till 11.30, no sorry, if it was not for the other staff the place would be even lower rating. breakfast was great and service from girl was top quality. I would want a lot better room for the £110 I paid

We are a small walking group of 10 sometimes 12 re-cycled teenagers who one a year have a 2/3 night break on the coast. This year we decided on Sun Bay Hotel Hope Cove. I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences we have had since we started our little outings. Staff 1st class, management 1st class,... More
