The bedroom, the location, view and especially the staff.
Table d'hote dinner was not up to highest standards (eg South Hams Fish Stew) English Breakfast spoils when kept in warm containers
I've been coming to Salcombe for over 30 years and have to say this was one of the best places I've stayed. If you don't want to hire a house then I'd recommend pushing the boat out (excuse the pun) and treating yourself to a stay at South Sands Hotel. Warm welcome, great food, comfortable facilities, relaxed atmosphere and all right by the beach. Thank you to all the team who made it such an enjoyable stay!
I can't think of one thing...oh actually I wish I had longer to stay.
Beautiful location with amazingly friendly staff, best holiday break we have had.
Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Thoroughly recommended
Great hotel great atmosphere excellent staff !
Lack of attention to the small details that matter
Lovely room, great view, beautiful staircase and restaurant, friendly welcome, tasty food.
Bed too hard for me personally, giving me a temporary bad back. Sink taps dribbled down fitting at low flow and splashed over the front of the basin at high flow - inserts would fix this cheaply. Slight smell of drains in shower room.
Location memorable, staff efficient, friendly and helpful. Very pleasant ambience,restaurant lovely outlook and high quality.
Only minor observations already mentioned to staff.
Beautifully appointed hotel with the most impressive staircase and fabulous views of South sands and the estuary. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. Breakfast had a good choice and was well presented. We had dinner one night of our two night stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our chosen food. As this was still New Year the dining room and decking had a lovely magical feel. All in all we would stay here again.
style comfort location
iPod player didn't work would be nice to have in room breakfast
We enjoyed the location and the comfort the hotel offered
The road down to the hotel and both of us being ill, out of the 4 days we stayed , we were ill for 2 days The menu was not varied enough .
Location Staff Food Style Ambience
Myself and my husband came here 4 years ago and have just returned for a romantic getaway. It was as lovely as we remembered, good food, service, staff are really friendly, amazing location and views! Hope we get to visit again soon.
The views were amazing, the hotel was new and very clean and relaxing.
The hotel has gorgeous views and the sound of the sea coming in and out of the bay relaxed us straightaway. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was always someone available. The restaurant had some lovely seafood dishes and our room was exceptional with a wonderful balcony and huge comfortable bed! We will definitely be back!
The only negative point was that it was a bit hot in the bar and restaurant area as the fire was lit, but it was unseasonably warm when we were there and it did add to the atmosphere.
Modern stylistic hotel set in an excellent location on the beach. Perfect for walks along the cliffs or ferry ride to Salcombe. Staff are always welcoming and helpful.
Crab starter for dinner was poor, more like frozen crab than fresh.
Views Location Decor Friendly staff Food
We stayed for 3 nights and would have been nice to have had fresh bed linen.
We found a lot of sand on our bedroom floor
The position.Food.relaxing atmosphere.Nice Staff.clean.
Lovely location, the view from our room was stunning. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the service in the restaurant and bar was first class. Generally excellent food with a couple of minor exceptions. The oysters and chips were especially fab.
No porridge for breakfast and the muesli was cheap/sweetened variety.
Location, views, staff, food
Bedroom very hot even in October (hence only fair rating for sleep). Several menu items unavailable in restaurant, excessive background noise in restaurant (no soft furnishings) causing difficulty hearing those at the table. Bizarre busts on spiral staircase!
The room, the view, the food all excellent -
the many dogs in the restaurant, the bar, the rooms etc
The fact that we could bring both our cocker spaniels, bowls and beds were provided although we brought our own. The décor and cleanliness were superb, especially the bathroom/shower and the beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in on being away from home. The location was excellent - not sure what it is like in the height of summer but in October it was beautifully quiet. Price was very reasonable for standard supplied. Will not hesitate to recommend.
Someone forgot to make our bed and refresh our tea and coffee making/glasses.
Great location and style.
Over priced for the standard expected.
