The views from the restaurant are unbeatable, i would love to see better. I will attach one gor you to compare. This hotel would...

Stayed for one night on a tour around Devon and Cornwall. What a position with outstanding views over the sea and bay! Reception was polite and courteous. Room was spacious with good size bathroom and all expected amenities. Bar and restaurant excellent with attentive, courteous staff. Only downside is no draught ale. Thoroughly recommended

A lovely hotel staff very helpful, beautiful views although no access to the beach. Rooms were very comfortable. My only reservation was this site is not ideal for people with disabilities. As it is on a fairly steep slope but the gardens are beautiful with an undercover swimming pool, but again quite a steep slope to access it. My only...

We booked a short one night Dinner, Bed & Breakfast break at Sandy Cove on a Saturday night with my wife and a small dog. There is no doubt this hotel commands a spectacular position and unsurprisingly trades off its wedding business. The restaurant is also tastefully decorated in a contemporary style with beautiful North Devon sea views. However we...

Just spent another amazing weekend here.... it just gets better and better, they have a done a lot of work on the rooms and the lounge area which all looks amazing. It was nice to see the roof terrace and the enclosed pool area. As always nothing was too much trouble for the staff from check in to check out....

I've stayed at the Sandy Cove Hotel a couple of times now and I can say for certain that I will be back again! Firstly, the location is absolutely stunning, the views are amazing, down the cliff and across the water and with one of the balcony rooms you could literally sit there looking out all day. We had the...
