This is a little corner of paradise , it would be hard to find a more tranquil beach hotel in the UK, the sea literally laps up to the terrace and at night , all we could hear were waves rolling along the shore -bliss. Its worth paying more for an amazing Dragon room with breath taking sea views and the best bathroom ever, roll top luxe and power shower.
Interiors are pure Cape Cod, food has the unmistakable Mitch Tonks flair,fab fish, the best squid in batter we've ever tasted, a far cry from those chewy spare tyres you often get. The wine list is sophisticated and staff stylish, and atmosphere a bit clubby, very grown up preppy as it is quite expensive. But the most essential accessory seems to be a dog, we were just about the only couple without one! Think Ralph Lauren meets Martha Stewart, we LOVED it and can't wait to return. But be warned , the roads to approach are hairy. We parked up for three days and took the ferry into Salcombe(next door) or walked everywhere , UPHILL earning our delicious Devon cream tea. The steep roads are not for the fair hearted. If you love a quiet bolt hole, laid back luxe, fab fish and fresh sea air , you will love South Sands
