This was our first visit but definitely won't be our last! We normally go to a 4 star hotel in South Devon but found this break online and it seemed great value for money compared to what we normally pay. The hotel is in the most wonderful location with amazing sea views. Food was much better than we have had...

The location is good (about an hour from the M5 junction) but at this time of the year there is not much for little people to do if it is heavy rain. Great local golf courses. The staff make this place - many have been there for all of our visits. Robin who runs the bar is fantastic, the lady...

We had our wedding here in October and it was perfect; the staff couldn't have been more helpful, the food was amazing and the rooms were lovely. It was important for us to have our wedding in a beautiful location and Sandy Cove certainly delivers. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

We had the pool and sauna to ourselves which was lovely. Food was great and breakfast was one of the best i have had for a while. All...
