The hotel is really tastefully furnished with great attention to detail. The seaside aspect on its own little beach is wonderful - you can smell the sea as soon as you arrive. The food was very good quality and beautifully presented and the vegetarian options didn't seem like an after thought - my pearl barley and artichoke risotto was delicious.
As the name suggests, the hotel is in South Sands which is a little way outside Salcombe and does involve some driving on wiggly roads. Once parked up though, you can always use the ferry service to Salcombe or visit 'The Winking Prawn' which is about 10 minutes walk away.
We stayed in a balcony room overlooking the whole of the South Sands beach and estuary. It was so peaceful, and a stunning view to wake up to each morning! Wonderfully comfortable large bed, and tastefully furnished room. The staff were excellent. The menu had a good variety of fish and meat dishes and all our meals were superb. Wonderful breakfast with lots of choice to suit everyone. We will definitely return.
If there is possible downside, it is that there isn't a separate lounge. It didn't matter to us too much but I can see it would be a very welcome addition for a larger gathering of guests. I also think a lift would be a welcome addition.
Lovely setting, relaxing
Bed was to hard
View,hotel, bedrooms, shower/bath and food were superior and it was accompanied by good service and relaxed surroundings. Thankyou for a really memorable visit! The ferry trip was fun too and the chance to play scrabble from the games selection.
The heated towel rail wasn't functioning so fluffy white towels got a bit damp.
Fab place to stay,friendly staff.lovely breakfast,pleasant sitting area,best view ever!
Room was poor,too small, bed was very hard. Thought it was expensive for the room we had,i was a bit disappointed in the room.
Friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful sea views from the terrace, delicious breakfasts. Relaxing decor.
Our bedroom was at the rear of the hotel and beautifully appointed but people passing by on the road could see into the room. A blind would be a good idea!
Friendly helpful staff Great location and views
Literature could do with a proof read! Pillow a bit hard for me
Hotel staff were impeccable at all times. The location, alongside South Sands beach is just fantastic. The hotel food and wine were absolutely outstanding.
The narrow approach lanes can be a little disconcerting.
Everything really, a stunning little hotel in a beautiful estuary. Everything about the hotel is tasteful, clean, and confortable.
The staff were very friendly, attentive and professional.
Would have liked a larger lounge area
Location, food and ambience
The location of the hotel is superb with lovely views onto the estuary. The dining area and bar are very inviting with an option of outdoor tables weather permitting! The staff were very accommodating at all times during our stay,
Our apartment, whilst spacious and well furnished was looking a bit tired with the most incredibly squeaky floorboards which really do need some attention! General cleanliness on our arrival could have been better and there was no milk provided with the tea/coffee making facilities although some previous guests had left luxurious ice creams in the freezer!!!
Location, food, atmosphere! We stayed in the basic room because of hotel rates but it was a lovely room on ground floor which you could walk out of into the beach. We only stayed one night but would definitely go back again!
Price of stay
view from our window
bed was a bit firm
Outstanding View. Nice room. Staff very attentive although sometimes a bit out of their depth as it was very busy. Food exceptionally good. As it should be, our room was very pricey.
Loved the view
Our bedroom was poor for the price paid. We could not open the window at night as it was a door onto the street. Additionally the air con was not very effective. Too hot and airless
Great location and nicely furnished. Younger staff were keen to assist
Needs to take a hard look at itself and pay more attention to detail to delivering a high quality service.
location, staff at reception.
odd smell in the room, average food in the evening, with poor service and limited menu.
Fabulous beach-side setting, restaurant terrace idyllic, rooms very well appointed, food excellent. Friendly and helpful staff, and availability of transport into Salcombe either on the little ferry or the hotel's own Landrover.
Room a bit cramped and hot, beds hard.
Very good location for walking and looking out over Salcombe estuary. We were with grandchildren who enjoyed the sand and swimming. Will certainly stay there again
The location is great, parking is good, views over the bay are fantastic, hotel is smart and stairs very interesting
Staff always helpful Great views Lovely design, rooms were spacious and welcoming Sun Terrace
Specials of the day would be a nice option Wine was expensive although good quality
Hotel design and accommodation Proximity to beach/ water Breakfast menu
Limited choice offered by restaurant evening dinner menu,especially for non fish eaters Access - narrow roads to hotel we're irritating TV reception poor for a HD set Bedroom - slightly hot, a fan would have been nice
The relaxed atmosphere & personal approach.
Pillows weren't comfortable
comfort and location
Wi-fi very weak in the room
