Reviewed 29 July 2013

We have recently spent a week at the Bay Hotel where we had a thoroughly enjoyable break (enhanced by exceptionally good weather!) With a perfect room, excellent meals to chose from a varied menu and a very hospitable team of staff we barely felt the need to even leave Coverack for days out. That said, there are many lovely places to visit in the vicinity which add to the reasons for staying at this delightful location. There is nothing that I can think of that could have bettered our stay. We've already booked next year!

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are unbeatable

Just returned home from 4 nights at this lovely hotel! Our room was a tad small & it would have been nice if the shower stayed at the same temperature whilst you were in it! Apart from that, what a lovely hotel & I can only repeat what others have said here. The owner Mrs House works like a Trojan but with a smile, Thomas the waiter is a lovely lad, ALWAYS with a smile & a joke. The food is the main highlight of the hotel though. I have read good reviews on here & can only repeat, it was wonderful, even my partner was impressed & he is very hard to please when it comes to food! As a result, imagine our shock this morning when checking out & Mrs House said her husband had been terribly poorly, but was hoping to come back to work very soon. 'But I thought he was the chef' said I, 'who has been doing the cooking?' Turns out their daughter Zoe has stepped into her father's shoes & I hope he is dreadfully proud of her because we certainly did not notice that the chef was any less than we had been lead to believe!! Well done Zoe, keep up the good work! Thank you, Helen & Peter.

Thank you so much for your kind words. My father is much recovered now and we share the cooking, as in fact, we have done for some years. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again soon.

We stayed a week in May this year, great hosts, food excellent, Had a great room on the ground floor as I have a bit of trouble with stairs.Thomas is a credit to the service making meal times a pleasure. Must mention the cleaning staff who were very friendly and efficient. We are back home in Australia and think back to our time at the Bay with pleasure.A top place to stay! J&B.Brisbane.

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems, the ground floor apartment is perfect.

We spent two nights here at the end of June, and there is not much to add to all the other very positive reports. The location is superb, with great views over the bay. The food is very good, both at dinner and breakfast - way above normal hotel meals. Room was fine. Overall a great place to spend a relaxing few days.

Room Tip: We had a superior room which had a bay window in which we could sit looking out over the sea - well...

Stayed at this lovely hotel in June with my Mother and Sister for a few days rest and relaxation. We had a lovely stay. The staff were wonderful and the food delicious. The location is delightful. We will definitely return.

I must echo Alan C's review - and add that everything was perfect! The vegetarian food was at least as good as that for non-vegetarians and was creative and delicious. Many thanks to the House family and Thomas for making our stay so delightful.

Just returned from a 3 night break at The Bay Hotel at Coverack . Wonderful position just 50yards from the beach in this lovely bay and village. The hotel is small but as a result has a very friendly and warm atmosphere. It is family run with Mrs House up front and her husband in the kitchen. All very up to date and very comfortable and the food is to a very high standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are happy to recommend to others.
