We just required a short break following my retirement. We love Combe Martin, and have done so since we first visited the resort many years ago, some 35 years, when our children were young.
However, we stayed at the Poplars in 2009 and enjoyed it so much that we booked for a return stay after my retirement in June of this year. The reason was that we enjoyed the previous stay so much, that we looked forward to another comfort break.
We were not disappointed. Cliff and Jean the proprietors, still offered the high level of service that we had the previous year. It was quieter than expected this year in June compared to last year's Septemeber's visit, but this gave us an unexpected pleasure when we visited tourist attractions that would be busier in the coming months.
Cliff and Jean have spent many years, days and hours, in refurbishing the hotel, the latest of which is the dining room.
Cliff is the front man who will keep you amused with his experiences and activities.
Jean provides excellent food, both for breakfast and the evening meals, the latter which works out at about £15.00 per person for three courses and coffee, and is worth every penny when it is served in their lovely restaurant and can be accompanied by a later drink in their very comfortable bar.
The bar prices are very reasonable.
The beach is only about a few hundred yards away so that a late night drink at a costal bar could also be appropriate.
I hope that this revew will be of assisatnce as wel as the attached photographs of the hotel.
One final point is that balcony rooms are well worth it as you can get a lovely sea view
