    Peace and quiet.No children! Not a fair comment but it was appreciated.

  • Family with children

    On arrival all the staff were very friendly which isn't something you always get when you take young children to a nice quiet hotel. The children were given their own television and playstation and this kept them nice and quiet. The breakfast was cooked to perfection every morning and the staff were very kind and helpful throughout our stay.

    The booking process unfortunately didn't work. We have 2 young children and rang the hotel to say it would be the family suite that we needed and not the double room that was showing onBooked.net website. We were advised that this was not an issue and they would sort it out only for us to get a phone call an hour later saying we would have to pay extra to book the family room. However after some negotiation the hotel staff reduced this rate to an acceptable price.

    Attractive setting. Good Dining Room. Bar meal not so good--maybe we were unlucky that night. Generaly comfortable but bedroom rather small accentuated by large heavy furnishings.

    General facilities are very good. Location is beautiful,

    The hotel pretends to be very luxurious, but this stop at the door of your room. The bathroom is not of this century, and the beds are horrible. Furnishing is corny and too much, so the room turned out to be very cramped. Price/quality is not good at all.

    The attitude and helpfulness of the staff was of excellent standard. The fact that there was a lift made access to our room with our luggage very easy. The food was well prepared, it was an intersting menu. It was a great pleasure to use the dining room with its outlook and space.

    We thought that the standard of the outside decoration could be improved, a repair & repaint looks as if it is overdue. We could however live with how it is now but next year it will look a little shabby we believe. This is a helpful comment and certainly not a complaint.

    Revisiting an old haunt. Spent a lot of time here in the early 90's. Seeing the improvements and dinner! Excellent, although would question the value for money.

    The Tiger pub is a little of a anomaly and seems slightly out of character. My main 'dislike' would be related to cost and value for money. The B&B price is actually rather high compared to other locations, with nothing of real note to make it stand out. Dinner wa excellent, and again at £30 for two courses a little over the top compared to ther locations. Similarly wine prices really stretch the budget.

    The staff were extremely welcoming and very polite especially the Reception staff

    The room was very dark

    We enjoyed our visit to Devon as we visited our friends in Devon and Cornwall but unfortunately the Hotel was not what we were expecting.

    We found our room dull and not up to modern standards with reference to plumbing. Given that the Hotel is in the Dartmoor national park, the view over a most unattractive flat roof was frankly very dissapointing. The owners were apologetic but our 40th Wedding anniversary trip was not enhanced by that and we left early.

    Great place to relax in and wonderfully peaceful and quiet with good swimming pool.

    The decor in room was tired and in need of a more modern touch. Bathroom too small and little room to put wash bags.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Pleasant rural surroundings, use of swimming pool and relaxing atmosphere

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The fresh air and views, from the dining room in particular. The food was excellent.

    Romm (6) was a bit below average for a hotel charging £105 per night. Being next to the bar it could be a bit noisy. The toilet seat didn't fit properly and the sound on the tv was poor.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    We arrived at least one hour earlier than the agreed check in time. However, received pleasant friendly welcome whilst checking in. Very helpful staff throughout all aspects of the hotel.

    After the third night found the dinner menu to be repetitive.
