Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The Grose family maintains its excellent tradition’ of providing first-class hospitality near the rugged Devon coastline, where consecutive generations have run the family-friendly hotel for more than 120 years. Well-equipped (if ‘a bit old-fashioned’) bedrooms have ‘mesmerising views’ of the subtropical gardens and the coast; larger family rooms have bunk beds for the children, or space to accommodate a cot or extra bed. Consume crab sandwiches, seafood platters and real ales in the 16th-century village inn or the terrace bar; dress up for dinner in the newly refurbished Trevilder restaurant. Stroll five minutes to the sea or choose one of the diversions available in the grounds: croquet lawns, sun terraces, sports facilities, a spa; a children’s club during the school holidays. 4 miles SW of Kingsbridge. Thurlestone Hotel is also a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'For standards of comfort and generous accommodation it continues to be a safe bet. Mesmerising views, excellent food, family-friendly without being dominated by children om summer. Staff are formal and friendly never pompous. ' - Mike Craddock - July, 2016
'Well run in a traditional way. Formal without being pompous, friendly while maintaining high standards. The best thing is the location with its amazing views. Rooms are clean, well furnished. They accommodate a good number of families with children without allowing youngsters to destroy the formality. Breakfasts are particularly splendid. Dinners are excellent affairs. There is a pleasant spa and a wonderful outdoor swimming area. Good to see such courtesy and standards surviving in what is quite a large family hotel where the pressures to cut corners have been nobly resisted. ' - Mike Craddock - August, 2015
'The food was excellent. Breakfast has a cold buffet, and a wide range of hot courses prepared to order. Although it caters very well for families, the evening centres on adults --children can have an earlier tea or dinner. The rooms are well equipped and furnished and many have wonderful sea views. The lovely deluxe rooms on the corner of the newest wing have a balcony and views in two directions. The staff are attentive. As well as its own nine-hole golf course, the hotel benefits from a nearby full-size course. The existence of an indoor pool as well as the one outside helps in times of Devon misty weather! ' - Philip Carlisle - May, 2015
