Totally exceptional! Fantastic staff, exceptionally good food - really fine dining. Great atmosphere and good value. We love this place! The Gin and Tonics are the best we have ever tried!!! Well placed for some nice coastal outings.

My partner took me here as a birthday treat away in march '16. The hotel and the grounds are beautiful. We ate in the hotel restaurant, which was absolutely lovely! Neither of us are much good at golf but it was lovely to try our hand at the smaller 9 holes course. A really really delightful stay. Would love to...

We have stayed here on several occasions and despite being allocated a disappointingly noisy room ( just above the piano,in the lounge ... ) had another good stay with great food ( in both restaurants ) and super staff - thoroughly recommended for those wanting a quiet break with good holiday golf a few paces away

Our good friend was 70 and we decided to treat him and his wife to Sunday lunch here as he had worked at the hotel as a waiter in his teens and had not been back since. We didn't tell him where we were going and he was amazed as we pulled up in the car park. He was straight...

A return trip to this hotel for us. All staff friendly and attentive as always. We enjoyed dinner one night although at dinner nor breakfast we never managed to graduate to a window table and it is not obvious how tables are allocated unless we are just very naive?! Please see other our other reviews for other places to eat....

The food, room & service is very good, but the organised external events such as:- putting competition, Clay pigeon shooting, were poorly organised and the results NOT given out for any of the above events, including the casino night or Texas scramble as done in previous years? Apart from the above the stay was enjoyable.

An enjoyable way to bring in 2017. Wonderful food, friendly staff, tasteful decor. Very clean. Set in beautiful coastline. A relaxing escape in another world. Entertainment laid on to bring on New Year, and also the following night there was a fun casino. Hotel seemed to cater well for children.

All Brend group hotels rate 5*+ on my list! Not only amazing locations and interiors, but hotel staff are exceptional, with food to die for. Saunton Sands Hotel is incredible too. My father (93 going on 37) is never happier than when we are either at C.Bay or S.Sands. Best wishes to all at Brend Group for a good 2017.

We stayed in the summer of 2016. On arrival we were greeted well and the porter was very efficient, though the reception was a bit slow in that they couldn't decide amongst themselves who would serve us. The Taste restaurant is the side restaurant which was nice but totally lacked atmosphere. Also everyone was pushed close together which was a...
