We have stayed at the Sun Bay hotel numerous times before but this was our first stay since visiting last year when the hotel had just been taken over by the new owners. I am pleased to see that even more improvements have taken place since the grand opening. The sun terrace now has more seating and the shrubland has been cleared to give an astounding view of the bay - we thought the view was wonderful before but this has opened up a completely new vista. Lots of little changes have been made which I assume have come through listening to their guests and improving things where possible such as now having de-caf coffee on the tea tray in the bedroom as well as regular coffee. They may be little changes but when you don't drink anything bu de-caf, this was a welcome surpise. The Spring Menu in the restuarant is superb - lots of locally sourced produce. Three out of the four of us chose the Cherry Smoked Duck starter which was melt-in-the-mouth delicous. I can recommend the risotto too. Paul and Michelle were keen to please without being intrusive. The log fire was a pleasure to sit by in the evenings as it was really cold outside - something you rarely find in Hope Cove! All in all, the turnaround in this hotel is excellent and you will find a warm welcome and firendly atmosphere throughout. A large number of local residents were in the bar and the restaurant - always a good sign in my book.
