This was our second visit to South Sands and, to our surprise, we were greeted with a glass of Prosecco, each, and a hand written card in our room, from Antoine, thanking us for returning.

This Hotel has the most wonderfull setting. The rooms are recently renovated and well appointed. The dining area has the extravegant view of the estuary coming into Salcombe. The walk into the town is extremely healthy. There are also grat walks around the headland.

Unfortunately we came here for lunch without having booked or checking the menu. We have been here many times before but the menu has changed. We were staying at a hotel up the road so didnt want the full two or three course lunch. So we had to take the option of small dishes in the bar area. These were...

The food was underwhelming...

Visited for two stormy days in February. The dog friendly beach apartment was great. Very spacious, two en suite bathrooms, extra toilet and large sitting and dining areas with well equipped kitchen. The best of both worlds with independence and hotel services on tap. Breakfast was excellent and dinners nice although wine a bit pricey. Great walks along the coast...

What can I possibly say other than that the entire weekend at the South Sands Hotel was perfection. We arrived a few fridays ago after dark and were simply staggered at our room vista the following morning, it was breathtaking. The room and food were lovely and met all of our expectations. What exceeded our expectations was the amazing team...
