This is our fourth year of stopping over at the Belfrey, Sarah Jane and Neil are always welcoming and the rooms superb, this year we were in Tennyson with the wonderful power shower. All the rooms are first class and all feature little extras that go a long way. The toiletries are so nice you want to use them unlike... More

We had a lovely room with a stained glass window, comfy bed, L'Occitaine toiletries, lots of thoughtful little extras like tea and homemade cake on arrival, free juice and water in a fridge, little bowl of sweets in the room, aromatherapy spray for your pillow etc. The evening meal was outstanding, there is an excellent wine list and the standard...

We were greeted with a pot of tea (no cake) when we arrived which we had on the terrace which overlooks the car park and the A30. We found the road noise intrusive (in Tennyson) so we only stayed one night. Disappointed that the biscuits in the room contained wheat – the hosts knew my husband is coeliac. We thought... More

Thank you for your review and we are dis-appointed you didn't enjoy your stay. Your pot of tea, taken on the Terrace, looks across to the beautiful Yarcombe Inn and rolling fields behind. You arrived on a day I had been away and we had run out of cake but you had arrived between 5/6pm and most people arriving that... More

We stayed with friends and had a lovely time. Went for a drink in the pub opposite and then a meal in another pub in a nearby village. The owners were away so we had a 'guest' host and they were very welcoming - and very professional. The breakfast was great. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Wish we had... More

Greeted with coffee and cake on the terrace on arrival and left with a lovely full breakfast in our stomachs. The hosts couldn't have been nicer or done more. Rooms were comfortable and full of character you'd expect in an old building. We have kept the address in case we need to visit the area again as we can see... More

Greeted with tea and homemade cake on arrival in the beautifully decorated lounge. Was very impressed with the food because I am gluten free and they provided a great choice of gluten free foods (including the cake on arrival!) Well furnished bedroom and very comfortable with lovely views across the Blackdown Hills. Great family run business, friendly and lots of... More

Stayed one night . Room faced highway but double pane windows kept room quiet. Meal in restaurant was good and service by owners faultless. Well equipped bathroom. WiFi worked fine. Good parking for cars. Only downside - guests in neighbouring rooms can be clearly heard as the walls do not seem to exclude any noise

I'm pretty perplexed by the negative reviews that I've read here as I had an absolutely lovely stay. I was staying for business reasons and arrived in the afternoon (about 1.5 hours earlier than I said I would be arriving!) to a warm welcome, a cup of tea and homemade cake. I was given good advise on where to eat... More
