It's very hard to write a review of this hotel and as I'm typing I keep on changing the rating. I hope I can decide before I am finished writing. I booked the hotel because of the descriptions of how beautiful the view from the hotel is - AND that is absolutely true of the hotel. Difficult to find better...

Just returned from a seven night stay at this hotel. We had a wonderful stay. Views are to die for and the staff are all friendly and eager to please. Our room (1), was on the ground floor with sliding glass doors. Very clean and modern, but could have done with just a little more storage space. The food was...

Stayed here for the first time, as the hotels we tried to book were all full. What a pleasant surprise. The phone call booking was efficiently handled, with a few welcome comments of sarcasm after asking if the room was en-suite, and the suggestion that me running down the corridor for the loo was a thing of the past. The...

We recently stayed at the Sandy Cove Hotel from 16th to 19th September. We chose the hotel because of the good reviews(and because our usual hotel had no vacancies). We booked by telephone and we spoke to Dawn who was welcoming, informative and really helpful.On her advice we selected a sea view superior room (35). The vista was stunning and...

I pretty much agree with Dogisland74's review word for word. Not really a dog friendly hotel. We have 2 collies so were banished to a small room that smelled of urine and was directly underneath staff accommodation - which was lovely when they got up for work at 6am and stamped around and had a bath etc... Very expensive for...
