This was our third stay at the Poplars having found them by mistake last year when we had a very bad experience at another local venue. It turned out to be a bleesing in disguise as we then found Cliff and Jean at the Poplars who were very sympathetic to our circumstances and made sure that we wanted to revisit...

Poplars was a very friendly and pleasure to stay at. It is in a very good location as the bay is just a short walk away. I will definitely be looking to stay here again on my next trip to Combe Martin!

All the comments of my previous reviews of the "Poplars" remain valid. Your hosts, Jean and Cliff are consistently excellent in all aspects of the business of looking after you, thus ensuring you have a good time, and leave with fond memories that linger. Each visit finds further improvements to the hotel having been made or in progress. Staying at...

We have been staying at the Poplars Hotel since 1996 and we always have a truly fantastic time. We enjoy the comfort of our room, the wonderful breakfasts...and evening meals, and above all the warm and friendly welcome we always receive from Cliff and Jean. We always enjoy our stay and share a lot of laughter and fun with Cliff...

The one thing that strikes a visitor to this hotel, is the keenest of Jean & Cliff ,the owners, to do the very best they can to make your stay very comfortable and happy. Directly you enter the hotel for the first time on holiday they make you tea or coffee...a lovely welcome. If you want fun in the evenings,...

This was our fifth stay at the Poplars Hotel in beautiful Coombe Martin and, having spent our Christmas cooking and looking after our extended family, we had decided to treat ourselves to the New Year extravaganza with Cliff and Jean. We were joined by our cousins who had not stayed at the Poplars previously. It is always a little daunting...

From the minute we arrived for our first stay, to our very regretful departure 3 days later we had what can only be described as a totally unique experience, and one to be repeated as often as possible! Run by Cliff Jeffries and his supercook wife Jean, it gave us spanking clean, warm and well appointed rooms, Christmas meals to...

We've been visiting Jean and Cliff ever since they took over at Poplars. This is our 17th year with them, we come back three or four times a year - they're perfect hosts, and great friends. Friendly atmosphere, food is excellent and the entertainment is first class. The only place to go in the West Country. Can't speak too highly...

Discovered this gem in 2003 and have returned every year since. The hotel is situated a short walk from the beach and is ideally situated for exploring Noth Devon. Cliff and Jean are the ideal hosts. From your first visit you are made to feel very welcome and are treated like old friends (which we now are). The atmosphere is...

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights with Cliff and Jean, and would definitely recommend it. Cliff's evening entertainment in the bar is second to none, he had us in hysterics at times. Jean cooks a really quite superb breakfast, and Cliff is on hand to give ideas for what to do and where to go for the day. The rooms...
