My fiancée and I redeemed a Christmas present for a 2 course meal for 2 at this location. Upon arrival, the service was superb, the ambiance and setting was perfect for a spring evening and the drinks menu was well priced. The set menu boasted some what I would call exotic dishes, as well as some 'safer' meals. The fiancée...

Thank you for taking the time to write such an in depth review. As you found, our bedrooms and suites are booked quickly. This is much to do with our pricing which is for 2 people and includes breakfast. Your price reflected the bedroom and the non sea view.Thank you for the lovely comment on our sitting room which would...

We had an evening meal here. The setting is beautiful with views out over a blue Babbacombe Bay (hence the name). The restaurant has a lovely a mbience, the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was adequate bbut not outstanding. Avoid the pannecotta ( totally lacking in flavour)

Spent a night in the Oddicombe suite as a family of three. Fantastically fitted out with nice furniture, large rooms and good bedding. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful It is worth paying the extra for 5 star treatment and we will definitely be back. Only minor criticism was that the lady who took our order for breakfast was...

My wife and I went for an evening meal with some friends and it was very good. Have been there before and the meals are always worth having. Will return later this week to sample their wares again. Hopefully with the same results.

This is class at its best. Décor throughout is stunning and spotlessly clean. Definitely not your boring run of the mill hotels. All the staff give a ready and genuine smile from the housekeepers to cafe. We always felt they were happy to be there for us and not just because it was a job. The restaurant for breakfast has...

Tiny Room , No Parking , Unhelpful manager who was not willing to compensate for being placed in a very claustrophobic room which did not match the photos on the internet.

We never try to mislead our guests. It is not our policy to pretend to be anything other than a small boutique hotel with 10 bedrooms, a coffee shop and bistro. It is not viable to have a receptionist for 24 hours and we therefore advise checkin before 7pm. We do have an on duty manager should you arrive after...
