    Outstanding care and professionalism

    Review Sandy Cove Hotel at Coombe Martin, North Devon
    We arranged our daughter’s wedding at this venue for November 2020. It was postponed due to the second national lock down and took place in December instead.
    We cannot praise and thank the hotel enough. Everyone from the hotel owners to bar, cleaning and kitchen staff were friendly, professional and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and every care was taken to ensure that our wedding guests were looked after and protected during these difficult covid times. All the staff followed strict covid safety protocols and the management team were incredibly helpful when we had to postpone at very short notice. All our special rooming requests for various guests were taken care of with the minimum of fuss. They took time to listen to our thinking about the wedding and reception and made sure it happened as we wanted. When they made suggestions, they were perfect, showing the team’s clear understanding of what kind of wedding and reception we were all trying to achieve.
    The hotel and wedding venue itself were clean, covid safe and well maintained. Food was excellent and waiting staff were always discreetly on hand.
    The separate Wedding Venue is stunning with extraordinary views. The staff team overseeing our reception were friendly, professional, extremely efficient and very hard working. Without a doubt they helped make the day so special, relaxed and stress free. Hotel staff were always on hand to ferry guests between the venue and the hotel in the golf buggy and we were allowed into the venue in the morning to set up the decorations we wanted. The wedding reception team discussed how we wanted tables set up and achieved all our expectations.
    We hope that you will have gathered from our review that we cannot fault the hotel in any way. Our daughter’s wedding day was special and surpassed everything we had hoped for in such difficult times. This success was in no small way also down to the hotel and its staff. We recommend the Sandy Cove Hotel and its separate wedding venue without reservation. Whether you are just wanting to stay at this hotel or actually hold a wedding and reception there we know you won’t be disappointed.

    Stunning location, perfect day.

    Such a stunning location and backdrop for photos. Our wedding photos looked like they were taken at a far away resort, despite being at the end of September on the brink of a storm.
    The owner was so accommodating and friendly, allowing our dog to attend our entire wedding and stay at the hotel.

    Unfortunately room 43 wasn’t available on the day of our wedding but I would highly recommend securing it for your special day as it makes such a difference getting ready in there as the room is spacious enough for your bridal party and only a short walk to the venue.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful on the day. Helping take the pressure off us by decorating the venue and helping with the logistics of getting vulnerable guests down to the venue. the service was excellent throughout.
    I Would definitely recommend this venue and would love to return next year.

    Rescued Our Covid-19 Wedding!

    The team at Sandy Cove quite literally rescued our wedding weekend. Our day in it's original format got cancelled by our original venue with just weeks to go and the team at Sandy Cove were able to help us with a number of flexible options.

    I have rated them as Excellent for everything bar Responsiveness, where I rated them as Good. I am sure under normal circumstances they would be excellent but with so many cancellations, postponements, last minute bookings and new bookings, it was to be expected.

    The venue is absolutely stunning. Due to the glorious weather on the day, we were lucky enough to use every part of the venue.

    Wishing the team at Sandy Cove lots of luck for the remainder of 2020 and beyond!
