Chose this place for a night after visiting Salcombe Gin. It is off the beaten path, there is no phone signel. And as remote hotel the Wi Fi may or may not work. We found the signs post for the hotel well placed and dotted at intervals from main road. (SAT NAV may stop working).

We had 5 wonderful days in this hotel. From beginning to end every single person made our visit perfect. The welcome at reception followed by a delicious Devon tea was so lovely. Our family room was clean with everything we needed and kept up to a high standard by your staff

The villas facing the sea are wonderful, self catering but access to all the amenities. So clean and well provided with all you could possibly need. The beach is one of the most peaceful I have ever been to.

We have just spent 3 night at Soar Mill Cove and it has been perfect. We have been very lucky with the weather being the hottest February on record but even if it had rained everyday it would not have spoilt out stay at this fabulous hide away hotel. The staff could not be more

Are pets allowed in all rooms. This would be a problem for me due to allergy?
All rooms except Up Above, my parents old suite, which has just been refurbished. This is the only room we can guarantee will not have had a pet. It is the only room on the first floor, hence its name. The room has dual aspect with partial sea views and a balcony. we only charge the garden view rate for it and it can only be booked by calling the hotel 01548561566

Can you get a taxi to Salcombe from the hotel? How long will it take?
10 to 15 minutes depending on season but you must book in advance especially during school holidays! Hope Cove isn't far either and worth visiting.

Soar Mill Cove Hotel is often a popular choice for honeymooners and other romantic couples. I would recommend a nice sea view room with breakfat on your own terrace overlooking the bay. The hot tubs are private to our self catering properties. Call 01548561566 for enquiries and reservations.

"Try and book room 23, but not the week in September when we are coming back😁"
"Avoid this place"
"The three largest bedrooms at the front of the hotel that are slightly separate from the main building."
"Get room that is not next to swimming pool as it gets very hot."
"If you want a seaview, select a bedroom as far away from the main reception, lounge, restaurant area as possible to avoid unnecessary noise."
US$ 182 - US$ 402 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
