Just had a one night stay whilst house hunting in the area. We found the staff to be very efficient and attentive. Our room was on the front of the hotel so had a lovely view even though the weather was wet and windy. Room was fairly small, but clean and comfortable. Evening

My husband and I spent a fabulous 3 days in the premier room of this wonderful hotel. The window seat gives panoramic views of the whole bay and the shower and decor are first class.

The views are amazing, the food is out of this world and even the weather was top notch. Breakfa

Although getting to the Cottage Hotel is a little off the normal coastal roads for the Kingsbridge and Salcombe area, it is well worth the trip in my opinion.
My wife and I have made several trips to Hope Cove during the summer by boat and anchored in the bay. You cannot help bu

Is there a lift? If not, how many levels is the hotel on please? Also do you have disabled parking near to the entrance? Is there help with luggage to the room? Many thanks
I don't think that there is an explicit dress code, but it is an old world dining room with an old world atmosphere. So we always dressed appropriately - slacks and long sleeved shirt etc. If there was a lift, we did not use it. There is only one floor abovee gound. The staff are most helpful in helping to move items to and from the rooms. There is a small parking lot at the entrance and I am sure that the owners will keep a spot there for you if asked.

My wife has problems with lots of steps. Are ther many steps into hotel, and is there a lift to the bedroom floor(s)
We were not staying at the hotel. We had an evening meal to celebrate a 70th birthday which was brilliant. Sorry I can't help you.

My wife has difficulty with stairs, OK for a few, so are there many steps at entrance, and assuming the bedrooms are on the first/second floor, is there a lift?

"Speak to reception"
"Try to get a sea view, that is what this Hotel is all about really"
"Definitely ask for a sea view and, for a treat, book the premier room."
"If you can stretch to it, book a deluxe room with balcony and sea view - very good."
"Select a room with a Sea View, and enjoy 5 star comfort"
