Great views and outdoor area. Shame the hotel didn't follow suit. The floor boards in the rooms need replacing, I struggled to sleep as I could hear the adjoining room The food was that bad I had to send it back and go elsewhere. I was in the area for business and my client agreed that the food isn't great....

I'd like to see tripadvisor have a rating between average and very good as this is what I'd give Sandy Cove. The views are lovely. There has been a lot of refurbishment to rooms and public areas and it is still a work in progress. Hopefully, when it is finished then all signs of the older hotel will be gone....

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
