This boutique hotel is one of the best places we have stayed in with 5 star interior finish and views, excellent friendly service and delicious food. Highly recommended. We'll stay again if in the area.

The views from the roof terrace is stunning. The lounge is a perfect place to plan the day ahead. Although there is no parking, princes street car park is around the corner, and if you use park mobile's app can be cheaper than buying a pass from the council if you don't intend on leaving the car there all day.

Stayed here for just one night, wish we'd booked for longer! Hotel is beautiful, rooms are decorated to a high standard with comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom. We had a room at the top with fantastic views of the sea. The roof terrace was a real bonus, spent a couple of hours there soaking up the sun! Breakfast... More

Booked a weekend away for our wedding anniversary where we wanted to visit a few attractions in the area and relax after a stressful summer. Booked the Oddicombe Suite which was beautiful. Large comfortable four poster bed, large bathroom and set to one side of the hotel so it was nice and quiet. We arrived late on the Friday but... More

Beautiful hotel in every way. Late booking £120 for one night in the captains suite at rear of hotel so no sea view (£25 extra at the front). Lovely roof garden, stunning lounge, excellent bistro. There is no parking but there is an unloading bay at the side to check cases in. I was lucky to find street parking very... More

Just returned from our second stay at the Babbacombe Bay Hotel, this time minus our young children. Arrived late on Friday night. The hotel door was locked however this wasn't a problem, someone came straight down, checked us in swiftly and we went to our room. Room 3 was cosy, but plenty big enough for the 2 of us and...

We stayed at the Babbacombe Bay Hotel for three nights in August with our two young daughters and our little, dog. After our first night, we went on a day trip.

When you booked in to the hotel you did not have a dog with you. You did not mention the dog and the reception closes at six so there would not have been a person to see you take your dog for a walk in the evening. When my manager called she said you needed to return to collect the... More

We have just stayed 3 nights & enjoyed every minute! The hotel or I probably better described as a boutique guest house is of a very high standard. Our room was beautifully furnished and we had fantastic views of the bay. The cafe/bistro was fantastic. Food brilliant and the staff were all amazing! We will definitely return.
