Babbacombe Bay Hotel
After four very successful years our owner has decided to take it a bit easier. The hotel will therefore close on 31st October 2018. In its place will be four luxury holiday apartments for year round rental. The coffee shop will be open from 9am to 6pm seven days a week. The evening bistro will be closed from 27th August 2018 for this season. We would like to thank you all for your custom. If you are interested in information for our holiday accommodation please drop us an email and we will send you details.

  • Award Winning Boutique Accommodation
  • Award Winning Coffee Shop

Refurbished in 2014 the 10 bedroom hotel sits on top of the
Babbacombe Downs with Lyme Bay beyond; the hotel is afforded
stunning views across open sea towards Lyme Regis, Portland Bill
and the Dorset coastline. Hopefully, you'll agree we have succeeded
in our goal of creating a chic, relaxed environment where you can
come to unwind and relax.

Our home-cooked breakfast is served every morning in the coffee shop. We are famous for our Sparkling Afternoon Tea and there is a good selection of food from our daytime menu with daily specials too.

We have for the second year running received five stars for our guest accomodation from the AA.

We have also gained two awards from the Herald Express Tourism Awards. A Silver award for Cafe, Tea room or Takeaway of the year 2017 and a Bronze award for Excellence of Customer Service award 2017. Previously, we have received a Silver award for our Bistro Dining and a Silver for Hotel of the Year South Devon at the 2016 Awards. We were very proud to receive the Gold award for 'Coffee Shop of the Year' and Silver award for our Bed and Breakfast in 2015.
