Splendiforous setting, magical facilities, amazing staff and food to die for! Rooms have incredible amount of space, views are magical over rolling Devon hillsides to coast. Hotel is small but perfectly formed with years of practice of giving guests the most wonderful experience.

Staff were excellent from reception to waitress. Lunch , the fish was as good as any top fish restaurant. Great walks locally over to Hope Cove. Really recommend a visit to this quality, quirky hotel.

Another lovely weekend at The Soar Mill Cove. Very welcoming, very friendly, good service. Facilities excellent. Lots of lovely walks although weather very cold this year. We even had light snow! It would be good to see the delicious pavlova back in the menu if possible. Nevertheless the panna cotta was very yummy.

We were invited to a very special weekend Birthday Treat. From the moment we arrived to when we left we had a fantastic time. Our room was very comfortable, the swimming pool was warm and inviting. The views are outstanding opening up to wonderful walks. Our stay went far too quickly we loved every moment.
