Just returned from Port Light Hotel 28th October 2012 after spending 3 nights there for a break.
I was amazed to see a hotel so dog friendly. Well behaved dogs are allowed in the restaurant. Breakfast was lovely, everything cooked to perfection and HOT. The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. If you are intending to stay here I would highly recommend staying for your evening meal, the meals are fantastic and a varied menu, the menu is lovely and just couldn't make up our minds what to have. All rooms have a stunning views, I would love to stay there in the summer and watch the sun set. My only problem that I had was the bed I did found it uncomfortable, may be the mattress's are a little old, but I must say our room was very clean and warm and views of the sea which made up for that. Our dog loved it there, in what ever direction you walked there are some stunning coastal path walks. My husband and I walked to Bigbury Bay from the hotel going through a litlle cove called Hope Cove I just fell in love with it there, only took about half an hour to walk there, a small beach and a couple of pubs and a post office. Views are stunning, don't forget your camera. If you want to take out the car you can drive to Salcombe and this well worth a visit but trying to park the car is a nightmare, use park & ride in the height of the summer. Port Light is situated at the end of very narrows lanes which are passible in places, but if you like walking park your car in large car park and leave it there. Will defiantly return to this friendly hotel.
