I was looking for a hotel near Salcombe as part of a 3 night break for my Wife's birthday. Using Trip Advisor I booked The Cottage Hotel for the middle night (ended up cancelling our 3rd hotel and stayed for 3 nights here) and it certainly surpassed all expectations.
On arrival our bags were collected from the car and taken to the room and what a stunning view from our balcony room. We were mesmerized by the sea, the waves crashing against the rocks and the Sea Lion basking in the Sun.
A Cream tea was high on the list and was accompanied by a Crab sandwich - both superb, followed by a walk on the beach. A beautiful spot.
We had booked the half board package and had 3 great evening meals, variety of good choices each evening and the service led by Maitre D (Lisa) was EXCEPTIONAL.
The host William is a delight and leads his team by example, very hands on, attentive and welcoming. Old fashioned values which are so rare today.
We have already booked for another stay to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary in May. We know why so many people that we spoke to return year after year.
A true delight.
