Salcombe South Sands Hotel

Stay

Sea breeze in your hair and sand between your toes, walk barefoot from a day basking in the sunshine to the peaceful comfort of your own coastal sanctuary.

With relaxed vibes and our friendly, personable team on hand, our rooms are finished to the high standard you would expect from Salcombe’s best independent hotel. Complete with crisp white sheets and deep comfortable beds, fall into a dreamy seaside sleep, lulled by the sounds of the lapping shore.

Room with sea view

Sea View

Witness sunrise glitter on the water or watch stormy waves crash to the shore. Whatever the season, you won’t miss a moment of our dramatic surroundings with the unbroken views of our sea view rooms.  

Choose from one of the popular Dragon rooms, many with Juliette balconies and views across the beach below, or our sea view Yawl room with a walk in shower. If you feel like pushing the boat out, experience South Sands at its finest with our impressive J-Class room, complete with a Caesar sized bed, two roll top baths and a private sea view balcony.

Inland & Partial Sea View

After a day exploring Salcombe, or an evening on the terrace, sink into your cosy slumber and reminisce on the day gone by or make plans for tomorrow. All our rooms bring the outside in with quality facilities for your comfort.

Our inland rooms, named after types of sailing boats, face the valley to the back of the hotel, and our partial sea view rooms offer a glimpse of the South Sands beach. Inland and partial sea rooms vary in size, and details can be found on individual room listings.

Dog Friendly

We are all about waggy tails and sandy paws. With the beach on our doorstep and dog-friendly walks all around, we're the perfect location to bring your four-legged friend. We will welcome your canine companion with a doggy basket that includes their own blanket, bowl and a bag of luxury treats. We’re not just dog-friendly, we’re dog-loving. 

As a huge part of your family, your dog can join you throughout the hotel and accompany you for every meal in our designated doggy-friendly sea view area of the restaurant. With dog blankets provided in all public areas, your canine companion will enjoy South Sands just as much as you.
