Stayed at Gara Rock over new year, the place is closing for 6 months from 2 January - bought out by a new company. It is in need of a refurb and is showing signs of shabbiness so good to hear there will be a complete update. Plans look great - includes a cinema and spa treatment rooms - can't wait! Restaurant is fab, great food, fast service, warm welcome and allows dogs - all good. However if you go for dinner in the evening whilst the food is great the portions are small and the price is high, very high. I will return for lunches only!

50 of us rented holiday cottages and apartments for a birthday w/e . Everyone was wowed by the stunning setting , stylish , well appointed and immaculate accommodation
All staff so welcoming and helpful , the birthday meal was delicious . Some of us enjoyed the swimming pool and jacuzzi , a lot of us walked along the cliff paths . Batches of us went to and fro on the short ferry which linked Gara Rock across the bay to the quaint town of Salcombe . Some of us had dogs which were allowed in the Gara Rock resturant , it was great eating and drinking looking out to sea . Everything from crisp white bedding to resturant food was top quality . We were lucky to have several days of perfect weather , amazing sunsets and stunning scenery . However , even in worse weather it would be atmospheric . So worth a visit .

Took our American friends here to show them the fantastic view. We stayed here last June and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stopped for coffee and cake which was great and then did the great coastal path walk round to salcombe.

On any normal day we'd visit this place by walking from East Portlemouth ferry. However, today was an exception mainly because the weather was pretty foul, so instead we drove around the estuary and arrived by road. Anyone who has visited Gara Rock will know that the views are magnificent and today was no exception. Despite the driving wind and rain - the raging sea was a spectacular sight from the top of the cliff and inside the restaurant. We could easily have spent the entire afternoon eating delicious food and watching the storm.

Highly recommended in any weather!

We just popped in for a quick drink and found it welcoming, dog friendly, warm and loved the fantastic views. Didn't eat but the menu looked good and there were plenty of cakes etc available for a snack. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
