The Sparkford in is in a prime location, with a rather lovely exterior. Inside it has a labyrinth of rooms, unpretentious but rather sad. The staff were friendly but it is missing a certain something, not to mention customers!

I had booked a room through Travelocity but found when I got there that they had no record of it. Fortunately they had a room available though if I'd been about half an hour later there wouldn't have been anyone there as they close on Tuesday. Anyway I found the room to be basic but clean although it was pretty... More

This is a really random hotel. The bar staff were great but the rooms were unfortunately poor, pretty bleak and dirty. Breakfast wasn't available on either of the 2 mornings I tried even though it was paid for. Would have a drink in there again but wouldn't stay.

We have been to the Sparkford Inn a few times now, but this was undoubtedly the worst. The Sunday carvery looked rather appetizing and reasonably priced, so we decided to give it a go. Based on word of mouth from a few friends, we had reasonably high expectations. Unfortunately, however, these expectations could not have been further from the truth.... More

I booked this hotel as a last minute trip to Cornwall for the day, this would make a nice half way stop over, all other hotels within 30 miles were full (having a dog needed a dog friendly one as well) this was coming up with 2 rooms available and £80 for one and £45 the other, perfect I thought,...

I stayed here in August along with some friends. All of our rooms were basically uninhabitable. All our rooms stank of stale smoke and damp. They were unclean, linen unwashed, and certainly unfit for purpose. No staff were around to do breakfast in the morning. I would have gladly paid not to have stayed in this hotel. It is amazing...

So much is wrong with the place it is hard to know where to begin. Only 1 working bulb in the bathroom, loo roll that was used and had about 3 sheets left, holes in walls, worn carpets, dirty walls with streak marks everywhere. The fact that they charge >£100 a night which is comparable to other places locally that... More

This is a terrible place to stay. We stayed on a weekend in July, the breakfast was only available 9-10. On the Saturday, we sat and ate cereal while waiting for attention, but none came. Needed to be somewhere, so ended up leaving without a drink or hot breakfast. Sunday was ok but quite small breakfast. The room had no... More

My husband and I booked one night at the Sparkford Inn, confident about it as we had stayed here a few years ago. However, when we checked in, we were asked to pay for our rooms (which was in the original terms so we did not quibble). We were asked what we wanted for breakfast, although there was no menu,...
