My wife and I often promise each other that we'll make our Trip Advisor debut, after having stayed in some pretty awful and pretty amazing places over the years.
Our recent visit to this wonderful hotel has finally compelled us to make good on our promise.
The arrival was flawless as we were greeted by the lovely Jo (best smile in the business). She quickly and effortlessly glided into action, deposited us into the beautiful lounge area, made our dinner reservations and had glasses of fizz in our hands within the first 10 minutes. We could go on about how special this exceptional front of house made us feel but must also credit her incredible team who share the same infectious warmth and enthusiasm.
Our room was stunning, the views out of this world and the attention to detail as good, if not better as any we've seen. We'd not visited Salcombe before and were amazed at the colour of the estuary and the unspoilt beauty of neighbouring beaches.
The spa is a little haven with a perfect pool and private loungers to relax in after a dip. We found ourselves nodding off and were only able to drag ourselves away by my wife's insistence that we shouldn't miss gin o'clock!
Our experience of the restaurant was a good one and the food was very tasty (try the beef!). There was no rush to get you in and out, which we felt suited the hotel's stylish but informal approach. Service at times was a little slow and some of the staff not as confident as they could be however this didn't detract from the feeling that at all times, you were their priority. With a little more guidance and direction, this place will be where it very clearly wants to be.
We absolutely loved it and can't wait to return - thank you to all of the Salcombe Harbour Crew and to the wonderful Jo for everything she did to make this stay a very special one.
