We visited the hotel for a very special 60 th birthday tea. I think we were about 24 people round several large tables by a picture window looking out across the sea. The tea of delicious sandwiches, scones jam and cream and two scrumptious cakes was very generous, with tea and coffee to drink plus a glass of fizz. The... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was good with lovely bathroom. View from the balcony was fantastic. Dinner was well cooked, tasty and good value - as was breakfast. Unfortunately we didn't make use of the spa. Nice village too - and the Village Inn is a good pub. Downside -... More

Such a stylish, comfortable and friendly place to stay. Stunning views of the bay, lovely gardens and pool for the summer, great food and restaurant service all year. Just impossible to fault the Thurlestone...

I've just return from a night at the hotel. We arrived a little early and so whilst the room was being prepared we went for a walk around Thurlestone which was lovely. When stood on the beach, the hotel looked miles away and behind lots of houses - but from the hotel, the houses couldn't be seen and the views... More

Thurlestone is a hotel that does somethings well but has definite room for improvement. The pros: The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the showers are amazing, the food is absolutely fabulous and the staff are very friendly and welcoming - but this is everything you'd expect from a four star hotel with the reputation that this hotel has. The cons: We... More

We had lunch on both days and can only describe both as Excellent. Xmas Day we were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbly,this apparently to relieve too much congestion at the bar with a lot of diners arriving at the same time,this worked well. The meal was well presented,hot and very enjoyable. The choice of coffee at your table... More

We came on New Years Day for an Afternoon Tea - I phoned ahead and confirmed how many of the party would be having the afternoon tea and our arrival time. However, when we arrived no one had passed our booking on to the wait staff serving the afternoon teas. Not a great start! We were told to wait in... More

Had a two night stay here in early December and were blessed with great weather. This is a really good hotel, and you can see investment everywhere. The new spa and pool is excellent. The stand out feature remains the staff, brilliant without exception. I first stayed here over 40 years ago as a teenager as did my wife, before... More

My daughter and I visited this hotel mainly for a spa day. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we had complimentary coffee and biscuits on arrival, then spent the morning in the pool and sauna. Had a lovely lunch, deserving of several stars, in the afternoon we had a spa treatment which I cannot recommend enough, this is the... More
