I live only a few miles from the hotel, but have stayed here several times for short breaks or just to avoid driving home down windy lanes after dinner. This time was different - after the year from hell, I needed to move out of my home while building work was being carried out. As soon as I arrived, I...

We spent 3 nights here in mid November - it is our 7th or 8th stay here so we knew what to expect and it did not disappoint. As usual the accommodation was luxurious, the food excellent - especially the seafood and the staff who remembered us from previous visits were most helpful. We walked the south coast path both...

This is a small but beautifully located family hotel, which continues to please every year. My visit this year was as lovely as ever, but a great surprise was the new spa. There are only two treatment rooms, but the therapist is very good indeed, providing facials and massages of a high standard, which were a delight. A super addition...

Spent a couple of nights in October. The area around and view from the hotel is fantastic. The staff are really friendly and make you feel welcome. The breakfast was included and it was pleasant. The salt water swimming pool is good and there is a sauna. Ideal for a peaceful beak.

We spent two very enjoyable days at Soar Mill at beginning of November and as it was my wife's birthday we were treated to a room upgrade which was a pleasant surprise The hotel was quite quiet at that time of the year but as a venue for a short romantic getaway it was ideal.

We spent a couple of nights at Soar Mill Cove in October half term so I'm basing my 'very good' rating on what the hotel would be like in summer, as I appreciate it was not high season. In October it was very quiet, almost deserted during the day. The restaurant was good for breakfast, and being included in the...

Thank you for taking the time and leaving this review. I'm delighted that so many aspects of your stay were enjoyed. Unfortunately our beach was hit by a nasty storm which lead to the loss of our sand, however each day it looks better and better. I do hope that we can welcome you back in the near future.

We recently spent five nights at the hotel, which is dog friendly. We took our Labrador puppy with us, and he had the holiday of a lifetime, even people without dogs, appear to like them.

My wife and I went to this hotel just for the dinner. It was a nice experience with a very friendly staff. The three courses we had were really good, even the starter (I was more curious than excited about the carpaccio of pineapples, but do not regret my choice). The turbot on his risotto bedding was excellent. My only...

This was our third trip and we had another wonderful time and are already considering when we can come back again. I struggle to think of any constructive criticism - perhaps there was a bit of a wait at the bar most of the time but I understand it does not really merit a permanent member of staff. Other than...
