Set in the South Devon countryside, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, take in the fresh sea air, stunning scenery and coastline that make Carswell a coastal Devon wedding retreat.
Just a short drive from Plymouth and the picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Bigbury, Salcombe and Dartmouth, this working organic dairy farm is tucked away with its own private beaches and secluded coves.
Carswell is a unique and wonderful place. With so much to offer, from unique seaside holiday cottages, to beautiful views of the sea and countryside. Many great walks to be had and sites to see. Highly recommended!
We stayed at the hotel for a wedding, The good... The room was a very good size, 2 big mirrors, bathroom a good size, bath and shower, kettle, big comfy bed, was clean, big windows that let lots of light in but also big thick curtains that kept light out :-) for 2 people staying you got 2 room keys.
There is only a couple of small bad points..
For 2 people staying there was 1 flannel, only enough milk, sugar and teabags for 1 cup, wifi you had to pay for, breakfast was another £13 per person (we paid £75 for room) parking was £2 for the night.. wifi and parking shouldve come with the price of staying.. otherwise i enjoyed my stay, staff were all friendly and helpful and hall for wedding for absolutely stunning.. thank you
Really nice place to sit and have a big or small meal watching the waves run over Hannafore beach. They have a white linen tabled dining area too! Also a carvery which is top notch!
We regularly pop in for a drink or a meal.
Went up to the wedding fayre last month and saw the wedding coordinator.... just want to say how amazing it has been meeting her and planning my wedding with her. I have total confidence that my wedding will be perfect because she's in control even down to the finest detail.
Got married here 5 months ago, wedding planner was simply amazing and made the day run smoothly. A day I'll forget. This weekend we decided to go back for a relaxing weekend. Just love this place. Definitely a place to stay the grounds are just beautiful
Lovely place to go for food/drinks. The area is beautiful, the food is amazing and the place looks so lovely inside and out. One of my fav local restaurants. I hear they also manage rooms and weddings!
We came here for my boyfriends birthday and booked the winter spa break package with an overnight stay. I paid extra for the upgrade to a deluxe room with a sea view and balcony, it was worth every penny. The hotel is beautiful and has a classy feel to it, there are many places to enjoy the view whilst relaxing in one of the bars (which are pricey but you would expect that). We pre booked our treatments before arriving: A Facial and Head, Back and Shoulder Massage, both were fantastic. The rest of the spa facilities were lovely, including the jacuzzi and steam room; my only downfall was the changing rooms because they are in need of a facelift. The one shower is cold and dark, doesn’t look very inviting and the changing room itself is open plan, not everyone likes that.
For lunch we tried the Red Pepper Soup and Eggs Benedict from the all day menu, both fairly priced and tasted amazing! The service was professional and what you would expect from a 4* hotel. Unfortunately, we could not say the same about the service in the restaurant for our evening meal. We were seated by the supervisor, who was lovely and made sure we had everything we needed, though the standard of service went down hill from there. The waiter appeared to lack experience of the job to be serving in a 4* hotel which was disappointing, we have received better customer service in chain restaurants. We had the pea soup for starters and the pork belly for mains, which were faultless and the creme brûlée for dessert that wasn’t so nice. The wait between each course was reasonable until we had completely finished our desserts. We sat and waited for 30 minutes, being unsuccessful in catching the waiters attention, so decided to get up and leave, this swiftly caught his eye. Finally, after mentioning on numerous occasions that it was my boyfriends birthday (on the arrival date) and requesting small things to make it special, I was disappointed that no efforts had been made to persue my requests. On the whole, the evening meal was good, but the service let the experience down.
Breakfast the next morning was beautiful and a completely different experience to the evening before, the waitress was attentive and couldn’t have done anymore for us.
What a beautiful hotel. One of the best views in and of the bay. Fairly priced and extremely friendly, helpful and professional staff. Would recommend for anyone wanting to visit the bay or just get a night away!
I would definitely recommend. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and the sea views were amazing. The food served was outstanding. Presentation was of a high standard. Will look forward to staying there again.
The Marquis was fantastic , clean spacious rooms , great food , but best of all was the staff Mark , Stacey and Courtney they made our stay . We never wanted for anything
and always made sure we had plenty of chocolates !! Would always return there if only to see the staff again . 5* every time !!
Great location for our weekend plans. A very warm welcome when we arrived and we were shown to a lovely bright, spacious and clean room. Bathroom also large and clean, although the shower was a little, shall we say weak. Plenty of tea and …
