Good Hotel Guide Review

Family owned, family run, exuberantly family friendly, Keith Makepeace’s ‘welcoming’ hotel stands in rolling countryside above a valley running down to the shore. Continuity gives it ‘a pleasant, settled feel’: they still serve the ‘divine’ pavlova Mr Makepeace’s mother once made for Audrey Hepburn. Take a clotted cream tea on the terrace, then explore the many diversions outdoors and in: lawn and table tennis, a heated saltwater swimming pool, a spa, and ‘lovely walks to the beach, with its craggy rocks’ (borrow a pair of binoculars for dolphin-spotting). At dinner, tuck in to seaside-fresh fish and seafood alongside much locally sourced produce: chef Ian MacDonald’s market-style menus might include Cornish Yarg and Exmoor Blue cheese soufflé; Cornish hake, baby spinach, samphire, soft-poached egg. Pick one of the modern bedrooms to call your own: varying room layouts suit parents with children, or couples wanting privacy; all have French windows opening on to a private patio leading to the garden. In the morning, a cheering breakfast includes local sausages, Salcombe smokies, home-made conserves, freshly squeezed juices. (CE)

Guest comments

'Very friendly. Excellent service from all the staff. Good quality and varied dinner menu. A couple of tiny niggles: the plug didn't fit the basin properly, so the water ran out; and I had to ask for the replacement of three light bulbs. Our room was large and warm. It was a pity that we weren't able to make use of our private patio because of the weather. There is no longer an outdoor pool, but my swim each morning in the indoor pool was a highlight of our visit. ' - Jan Todd - July, 2012
'As regular visitors we are never disappointed. The welcome is warm, the food is good and the hotel is confortable. The outdoor pool, rarely used, has been replaced by a grassy bank and there are plans to improve the indoor poo.l ' - Margaret Box - March, 2012
