“A place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2010

Just had a few days at this lovely hotel.The hotel has recently been refurbished to a very high standard by the present owners .The rooms are large some with sea view or garden view they are well appointed and very individual .The views are beautifull ideal for walkers as you can walk from the hotel grounds to Polperro and Looe along the coast.The restaurant is superb and the service and the food speaks for it self with 2 AA rosettes.Talland Bay is a ideal place for peace and quiet and the welcome at this Hotel makes it an ideal holiday.

The hotel, which occupies a magnificent position overlooking the sea in South Cornwall, has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. Our sea view room had every comfort to which we are accustomed at home. Log fires in the lounge and dining room gave an additional homely touch. The staff, from the owner and his wife downwards, could not have been more welcoming and helpful and the waiters in the elegant dining room were attentive and informative. As for the food, it cannot be long before at least one and probably two Michelin stars are awarded. Unusually for us - since we are not easily satisfied - we could find nothing to criticise.

Before staying in Salcombe we stayed here and it was fantastic. The food was very tasty and even the younger members of the party found at least two dishes they liked which is always a challenge when travelling.

The hotel was a very relaxing atmosphere but a short drive away were plenty of activites for the whole family.

A great trip was had and we are thinking of visiting again in 2011

We returned to this hotel 34 years after our first stay. It is a very welcoming place and has recently been acquired by new owners who instantly made us feel at home upon our arrival. Our (upgraded) sea view room was spacious and spotlessly clean with an exceptionally comfortable bed. Tea with freshly baked cake was served in one of the lounges between 4 and 5 pm each day.

The evening meals were absolutely delicious and the service first rate. There was a lovely log fire in the lounge of an evening with very pleasant background music.

The gardens are beautiful even at this time of the year. The location is secluded which is something we like.

The new owners have plans to update the hotel during December and January and we are looking forward to returning next year.

Stayed here a couple of months ago, I think this is our 4th stay in the last few years. We just love the location, the hotel is quietly tucked away down a tiny road and minutes from the beach at Tallland.
The hotel rooms do seem to vary a bit in size and decor, this time we booked late and were a bit disapointed in the room. It was right up on the top floor and although very clean the decor was rather dated, as it was just one night it did not matter. The rest makes up for it, comfortable lounge, the food is better than you would expect and friendly staff.
We enjoyed walking along the coast path to Looe, lovely views. Looe is not great but a fantastic cornish pasty shop worth a visit.
We would return again, but ask for a better room.Look out for last minute deals on their website they are good value in comparison to other hotels in Devon and cornwall
