We enjoy places where the staff show an interest in, and interact with, guests, as that normally means the guests then also interact with the staff and each other. We had no interest whatsoever from any of...

We had a very special birthday dinner at Soar Mill Cove hotel. Champagne in the lounge, whilst enjoying a superb view of the sunset over the bay. The dinner was truly delicious and served by impeccable staff. A really special evening.

We spent three relaxing nights at the Soar Mill Cove on a DBB rate. The sea view room was huge and our dog settled in immediately! The thing that makes any hotel special is the people, and I can say that The Makepeace family have created a homely environment coupled with a luxury experience. We are looking forward to returning...

This time we had a sea view room (Jenny Wren) that had been refurbished during the winter months, it was lovely. There was plenty of room and everything there that we needed, including a box of treats for our dog.
