This hotel is practically on the beach. The coastal walk goes right by the gate. We saw the sun go down over the horizon across the beautiful, peaceful, Hope Cove bay and it was stunning. Then, when it was getting too cold outside (April), we went into a very cosy and comfortable bar for a beer. The staff could not...

The Sun Bay Hotel may need a little tlc and updating but our stay would have been hard to better when it came to service and attention to detail. All the staff without exception wanted to please and nothing was too much trouble. Our dog was made to feel welcome and I would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants...

We booked our wedding at the Sun Bay Hotel and it was the perfect venue. From our initial visit to view the hotel the Manager Keith could not have been more helpful. Keith had clearly organised many wedding previously and we quickly knew we were in safe hands. Keith went through all the options for our special day and everything...

We have just got back from a great weekend at the hotel. A last minute booking and a great choice. The hotel is extremely dog friendly which was perfect for us. The staff went out of their way to accomodate us and our 6m puppy. There is some great nearby walks...some a little steaper than others!! We watched the last...

I think that it's purely because of its location that the Sun Bay hotel gets away with the standard of its accommodation. Our top floor room (number 11) was dated, scruffy and cold. The ensuite was even colder due to NO means of heat in there. To call it a shower over the bath is a long shot. Basically a...

We arrived at the hotel around 3pm. The staff were so helpful and could not do enough to ensure we had a good stay. Initially we are in a room without a sea view and as we were staying for a couple of nights, they moved us to a room with a view for the second night and was much...

Just returned from a three night stay at this lovely hotel in South Devon. Our room was a bit dated but was spotlessly clean with an amazing sea view. The staff could not do enough for us and the food was superb. We really enjoyed our visit to Hope Cove.

Had a voucher for afternoon tea - we chose the Sun Bay Hotel, Salcombe. Despite the fact that we were the only people there, and it was very cold and wet, we had a very pleasant afternoon. Tea in the lounge overlooking the cove consisted of a pot of English tea, scones with cream and jam, some dainty cheese and...
