From the minute we arrived for our first stay, to our very regretful departure 3 days later we had what can only be described as a totally unique experience, and one to be repeated as often as possible!

Run by Cliff Jeffries and his supercook wife Jean, it gave us spanking clean, warm and well appointed rooms, Christmas meals to die for, sparkling entertainment in a very personal 'Cliff' style, and wonderful company.

We came home with sides aching from laughter and tummies full to bursting. All this and Santa too, We thoroughly loved The Poplars and look forward to going back.

Caro and Len

Room Tip: Our balcony room had a view of sea and countryside.

We've been visiting Jean and Cliff ever since they took over at Poplars. This is our 17th year with them, we come back three or four times a year - they're perfect hosts, and great friends. Friendly atmosphere, food is excellent and the entertainment is first class. The only place to go in the West Country. Can't speak too highly about Jean and Cliff and Poplars!

Discovered this gem in 2003 and have returned every year since. The hotel is situated a short walk from the beach and is ideally situated for exploring Noth Devon. Cliff and Jean are the ideal hosts. From your first visit you are made to feel very welcome and are treated like old friends (which we now are). The atmosphere is such that it is the ideal place to make new friends. Jean's cooking is superb and there is a varied menu. You will not find better meals anywhere. The bar is well stocked and with Cliff's entertaiment you are ensured a fun filled evening. The rooms are very comfortable and have been updated to an excellent standard.

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights with Cliff and Jean, and would definitely recommend it. Cliff's evening entertainment in the bar is second to none, he had us in hysterics at times. Jean cooks a really quite superb breakfast, and Cliff is on hand to give ideas for what to do and where to go for the day. The rooms were clean and the beds comfy, just what you need at the end of a long day.

The location is superb as well, with easy access to the main tourist attractions, and its just a 5 minute walk to the center of Combe Martin.

We hope to go back soon, and have already recommended it to my parents as they like to visit the area regularly.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are superb, offering an excellent views.

Clean, comfortable, Hosts are what hoteliers should be, Welcoming and affable,
Situated a short walk from beach area ( uphill on way back ) but not a problem. parking limited as it is everywhere in that area, Kids would love decent size outdoor pool ( Not used when we visited as weather not suitable, More than adequate well cooked and presented breakfast. Without a doubt would be our first choice when next visiting that area.
