Salcombe’s seaside gem South Sands has been featured on Channel 5 documentary ‘Our Dream Hotel’ as one of Salcombe’s “most successful high end hotels” with “views to die for”. The boutique hotel inspired new hoteliers on the programme with its classy, understated beachside décor that combines timeless seaside-chic with a modern touch.
Commenting on the TV accolade hotel director Stephen Ball comments: “We are delighted that South Sands has been recognised for its interior design as this reflects the passion, care and attention to detail we ensure through all elements of the hotel – from the restaurant and bar menus, through to each individual bedroom and the estuary-facing terrace.”
Enhancing the hotel’s interiors, head chef Allister Bishop’s menus stand apart for their creativity blended with a level of simplicity, encouraged by knowing the lure of fresh beach side produce and divine country living. Wherever possible, Allister uses local ingredients and integrates foraged food into the menu and the food is matched with carefully chosen wines and cocktails. Bar manager Will Neal also frequently incorporates seasonal, foraged ingredients with locally produced drinks into cocktails and non-alcoholic options. The spectacular curved wall of the restaurant’s pristine French windows presents a breath-taking centrepiece to the extraordinary bar and terrace area. The unparalleled views overlook the brilliant blue, green colours of the Salcombe Estuary and end result is a sensational dining experience.
South Sands’ rooms range for the small but intricately designed ‘Optimist’ to the largest and grandest ‘J-class’, which is adorned with opulent features such as the decadent 8ft bed and two roll-top baths and has stunning estuary views and coastal scenery. A private balcony looks directly across the bay and provides a wonderful setting for breakfast or a glass of bubbly. There are also five Beach Suites which sit to the side of the main hotel which make an attractive venue for private functions, corporate events and business meetings. Each comprise of two large ensuite bathrooms, one of these can be set up with twin beds, a generous open-plan reception, lounge, and dining and kitchen area.
The combination of the locally sourced and foraged menus, seaside interiors and beautiful, natural décor inspired by the coastal surroundings, work together to create the inspiring, luxury experience South Sands Hotel is recognised for under the creative direction of Stephen Ball. Whether it’s first-rate dining, a romantic escape, a wedding or a corporate event space required, South Sands Hotel is the perfect destination. Doubles cost from £170.
