Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘coastal getaway’ comes into its own at this chilled-out cliff-top hotel at the end of winding country lanes and poised above a beach accessible only on foot or by boat. No wonder it’s popular with families who want to cut loose, dog owners who relish freedom and anyone who wants to just kick back. The ‘stylish yet relaxed’ hotel ‘makes the most if its surroundings’; rooms and apartments offer views of the views or gardens. They are rustic chic with sisal carpets, natural woods and a pale-washed palette; all have robes, coffee machines and luxurious bathrooms, some with freestanding baths. Apartments and the Penthouse are suited to families while the Secret Suite, with a hot tub, is for romantics. Food is ‘a highlight’, served in the bistro with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sea, or on the terrace. ‘Tasty and unpretentious’ dishes might include Salcombe crab hotpot and pork belly with burnt apple, as well as steaks, and fish and chips. Enjoy the spa or pool, mess about on the beach, take a walk on the South West Coast Path; if raining, retreat to the cinema. Staff ensure ‘we had everything we wanted’.
