Had our Christmas party at Sandy cove last night which was absolutely briliant. Such a lovely venue with an amazing three course meal including a carvery main. All courses were help yourself with so many options.

There was a free casino which was great fun, even as a newbie. We

Nice meal in a lovely appointed restaurant, everything was fine until presented with the bill. There was only 2 of us but they had charged us for an extra bottle of wine and an extra beer - in all nearly £30. When I pointed it out the the waiter offered me a pint of lager as comp

Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you liked the Restaurant and that you had a lovely meal. We are however very concerned that you seem to feel this error was deliberate. We have traced that you actually came in June which is obviously a very busy time for us and we do apologise for the error but it was purely an error, we have spoken to the waiter who served you and he has confirmed that he mistakenly booked these drinks to you and the reason he offered you a drink (which would have come out of his own tip money) was that he was embarrassed for the error. We do very much hope that you will return again in the future.

This place just makes me want to come back time and time again. The views are to die for and the food divine.
Ready to book again, just can’t work out if it’s for Christmas or New Year.
Thanks for a wonderful stay once again.5 Stars!

Stayed one night to celebrate a big birthday. Lovely room with balcony and splendid view, well furnished although one small thing is that they did not provide flannels in the bathroom! Evening meal was good and staff were friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast and all in all consi

Breathtaking view - like being abroad!
Stunning views
This is a bit of a 'random' question, but I took my family to Sandy Cove several times upto about 10 years ago. We always found the hotel 'Ok' but what really made it worth the trip was the restaurant as the meals were spectacular, specially the Saturday night smorgasbord. Unfortunately the restaurant manager left and the restaurant suffered terribly for it. Does anyone know where he went?
No sorry but we stayed twice this year and the food in the restaurant is to a very high standard.

Totally agree. We've just had a dreadful experience there!
Can only say we stayed in July for the fourth time and found it excellent. Our room with a balcony was clean and had wonderful views. The breakfast, lunch and evening meal were all excellent.

But did you not find the inner lobby and stairwell, together with the bedroom corridors in such a poor state? We had a dismal experience!
the stairway and lobby, and sitting room were filthy and to be honest stank

Has anybody visited with a dog and what was the room like that you were allocated. My room was swapped from what I requested via booking. Com and after paying £190 per night I certainly do not want an awful room
sorry I missed this not been on for a while! No not £190 a night depending on when you go should be about £60 each for Dinner B&B Dogs £12 per night me thinks! Rooms are the basic rooms and depending on which you get ok, some still being updated! If they downgraded your room to standard you should get refund!

"Sea view rooms with balconcy all good but can hear all noise when adjoining rooms using the bathroom, speaking etc"
"Take a room facing the estuary"
"Make sure your booked in to Sandy Cove and not the Bayview down the road!"
"Make sure you have a sea view room"
"See comments above."
