I had stayed at Sun Bay for work locally, luckily work had payed for the hotel and not myself! I can only describe the rooms as 'a retirement home' within the room you are kindly given soap that again I can only describe as being in a condom raper. The shower is tiny! To turn the thing on you have...

After years of camping or staying in a caravan at Hope Cove we decided that this year we'd treat ourselves and stay at The Sun Bay Hotel for 3 nights, even though it was £110 per night!! We arrived on the Friday at 12:30 but were told that check in wouldn't be available till 2pm so decided to walk down...

Unfortunately we were disappointed by the Sun Bay hotel. This hotel is extremely overpriced for what it is. It has huge potential, in a beautiful location - the beach is a short walk away and the scenery is beautiful. We didn't spend much time in the hotel so it was fine for us.The hotel does appear to have had some...

I recently stayed at this hotel and booked and paid for a sea view, this was confirmed on my booking paperwork. When I arrived I was allocated the smallest room in the hotel - I think - ( Room 1 ) this room had a tiny window that overlooked the car park. The only window that opened in the room...

I arrived at the hotel with my young eight year old daughter on Monday 4 August. The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the bay. We found the rooms adequate and very clean. We stayed for an evening meal which was very good. I found the service very good and not intrusive. There was a good option at breakfast...

Having seen many older glowing reviews, we were a little worried about recent comments as we came to our booking time. Ok, the Car Park seems small but it accomodated all guests. The reception is not fully "manned" but someone responded to our bell very promptly and sorted everything quickly. The food and drink prices are on a par with...

We didn't stay here but elected to eat there on 31 July 2014. The location is great with a lovely view of Hope Cove, sadly the service does not match expectations. We had to wait for over an hour and a half to be served our food, which when it did arrive was smothered in butter, and the garlic bread...

We recently stayed over and found the staff friendly and accommodating as we have a 5 month old. The views were stunning and loved the sun terrace, a stones throw from the beach. Will defiantly return and will be recommending it to friends and family..

We stayed here for 2 nights with a family party for a wedding; booked for us as the only hotel in the area with enough accommodation (we needed 8 rooms). Access to Hope Cove is via narrow unmarked roads, quite scary if you're not used to that kind of driving. Hotel car park small and some spaces difficult to access....

So be careful you actually state you want a sea view when you book or else you might miss the one good thing about this hotel. Cracked sink, cramped bathroom, no decent bathroom toiletries, no biscuits or hot chocolate on courtesy tray, cold sausages and baked beans at breakfast, topped off with a one hour, twenty minute wait to even...
