Extremely welcoming, attentive and accommodating staff. The hotel as a whole maintains standards that other hotels have let slip, for example, dressing for dinner, silver service etc. The food is fabulous, good portions and locally sourced. Such a treat to be presented with an enticing sweet trolley and delicious cheese board. The hotel is very clean and what a brilliant... More

Just had a short break at the Cottage Hotel. What a wonderful experience. Excellent service. Warm and very dog friendly, even the cleaners had a bag of dog treats and said hello every time we saw them. The view from our room was stunning, over looking a beautiful harbour and beach. What a gorgeous site to wake up to. Surrounded... More

In a world brimming with modern chain hotels, the Cottage reminds you of what a good family-run hotel should be. The balcony rooms are the best to go for with excellent views out to sea. The half board deal includes a five course meal which is more than filling! William the manager makes you feel at home throughout your stay.... More

We have enjoyed visiting again over recent years. The staff cannot do enough to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. The views are stunning and refurbished balcony room very comfortable. The old fashioned charm makes it so appealing with so much character. I do hope it never loses the historical family feel with the future developments. Being dog friendly is... More

The Cottage Hotel at Hope Cove has one of the most dramatic settings I've seen in the South West, and this is clearly its 'raison d'etre'; justifying all the development work by the same family over many years, which has transformed two separate residential properties into the rather imposing structure we see today. The Hotel occupies a large, fairly steep... More

Dropped in here on spec for morning coffee and tea. Amazing views of Hope Cove from the lounge. When they bought the coffee (for 1) it was in a large cafetiere and the tea (for 1) was in a silver tea pot with water jug - old fashioned pretty crockery. We both had scones, and they were able to produce... More
