The most delightful experience

Sandy Cove Hotel was the most delightful experience we've had for a long, long time.

The grounds were well-maintained, and the Reception staff were most helpful. Our room had a truly stunning sea view, and was spotlessly clean and very modern, with tasteful furniture. The Bathroom was also clean and modern. The Restaurant was spacious and, again, very tastefully furnished. The food was sublime, with a varied choice. One word........Excellent.

An overnight break for the whole family

We had a lovely welcome and marvelled at the great view.

We were celebrating the end of exams for one family member and the relaxing swimming pool was first on the agenda. We looked forward to using the facilities. The relaxation room was disappointing however with no relaxing music or aromas one of the rooms had no purpose and was a bit smelly and not used. The heated seats were ok but lack of a relaxing atmosphere made them a bit pointless too. The sauna was ok, but not the best. The best bit for us was the pool and loungers, because we had blue sky and souring temperatures we could enjoy the area almost to ourselves, and enjoy the view while the children played in the pool which was lovely and warm. The jacuzzi wasn't hot and used just pool water, and the bubbles not very invigorating, however it made a change. The position of the hotel is superb for the coast path to Combe Martin and we had a great walk there in the evening. The bedroom was fine and suited our needs with the extra room joined on for the children, and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately my husband and I were woken up by a child and two men talking outside the room window, we thought they sounded like employees as our room looked out at the back of the hotel near the back door of the kitchen but we can't be sure. It was another blue sky day and the early start made us go for another swim before a very tasty breakfast and enjoyed the view again from the window table.

Housekeeping issues

It was a stop off on route to Cornwall, so just one night but with a number of housekeeping issues to deal with on top of two over excited toddlers it was not a great night stay.

The staff were excellent at helping us with the two children and provided them with an early tea giving us the opportunity to get them into bed. On a negative front a family room really needs the options of blackout blinds a working phone and the decking outside the room was broken in several places.

We felt really looked after, especially our last breakfast morning when our table was moved to the window for a perfect sea view.

Also really helpful towels were provided for the pool, made life a lot easier with 2 boys using the pool. Fantastic stay, feel very relaxed!

The place to stay for total relaxation and the best views ever.

I would stay again but it has some way to go to live up to the photos off the hotel.

Great views

Spectacular views from our room.

Will definitely go back. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Our experience at this hotel was positive from the moment we stepped into reception to check in. Will certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family.
