On arrival it was a pleasure to meet the new owners, Vicki & Phil who greeted us with a welcoming pot of coffee & a brief history of the Victorian hotel. We were shown to our very comfortable room which was spotlessly clean throughout. It was well equipped with bathrobes & slippers, tea & coffee making facilities with fresh milk...

Stayed here for the last 2 nights whilst visiting family in the area. An excellent base near the lovely Meadfoot Beach. Very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Spacious comfortable room and en suite. Breakfast was first rate from the home made granola to the full cooked English option. Will definitely be staying here again

Greeted on arrival by friendly hostess. Invited to have a cup of tea. This was nice but conversation was stilted and we almost felt we were being interviewed. Advised we had been upgraded and taken to our 'deluxe' room. Room was immaculate. Could not be cleaner. Provided with quite comfortable super-king size bed. Room layout left much to be desired....

I picked this hotel after researching on trip advisor for hotels where I could get a gluten free full English breakfast. Being a coeliac it is very important to me to be cateredfor as well as everyone else - I have paid my money after all! They were very helpful with this and provided me with gf sausages and toast,...

Management response:

Hi Sarah - thank you so much for your in depth and really helpful review. Lots for us to take away and think about. As a result we've already expanded our GF larder. And we'll be making sure pampering in the bathroom isn't stinted on either. On a personal note, as the new owners, thank you for your kind words...

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. Our room was beautiful, the bed was very comfortable and it was lovely and peaceful. Good selection for breakfast and the hosts couldn't have been friendlier. I can definitely recommend the pancakes for breakfast, they were ace!

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us here at Meadfoot Bay. Chef is chuffed too about her pancakes! Hope we have the chance of welcoming back soon. Vicki & Phil

I emailed Meadfoot Bay, telling them the dates my wife & I planned to be in the area. I also wrote the following. "I'm a wheelchair user for long distances but can walk with two walking sticks over shorter distances. Do you have an accessible room? Alternatively, a normal room with a walk in shower? Getting in and out of...

Dear Keith I have to say your review has caught us completely by surprise on two counts. Firstly as the new owners of Meadfoot Bay (the change of ownership took place this last weekend), we were very much attracted to the property because as you, and indeed hundreds of other customers can see, the reviews are consistently excellent and have...

We stayed for a mini-break right at the end of the season, just before things started to wind down for the end of season but we were blessed with some lovely weather. The owner made us feel especially welcome on arrival with a pot of tea, whilst he dealt with some departing guests, before showing us to our room. We...

Stayed at this hotel for a week end October and on arrival we witnessed the best welcome we had ever received at any hotel in the UK or abroad. Gary made us tea, coffee and biscuits and took our luggage to our room without hesitation. The hotel is family run and we were made to feel so welcome every minute...
