Stayed here for the week last week. Staff lovely and friendly as usual, breakfast excellent even though. I am gluten free and pregnant , the chef always catered for me even if it meant adapting ( thank you) . This hotel is an ideal base for the south hams , Devon and Plymouth and I will be back soon .... More

Stayed here recently and thoroughly enjoyed myself, the staff (especially Donna, Danna and Pamela) made me feel very welcome. The food was fantastic for the price, kudos to the chef! The rooms were basic but clean, all in all, I had a fantastic stay and would definately stay again!!!

Managed to get a two night booking at short notice. Thank you staff for making us welcome. However the "chef" could only make scrambled egg in a frying pan! My wife returned her burnt offering but five-six minutes later was presented with a duplicate version. Sorry chef but if you had learnt to use a microwave you could have presented... More

Our room (number 23) and the bed it contained were both above average size and very comfortable. The bathroom was also a good size, the room was quiet (despite a function going on) and overlooked the garden. I would have rated the hotel a lot higher if the breakfast had been edible but it was very poor. Tough bacon, cheap... More

Called in for a quick "supper" on Friday - family of four. Not been for two years, because although only up the road for us, the last time we visited the food was average and the time it took to serve two courses was interminable. However, a revelation - food & service tonight was excellent. We had soup, scallops &... More

Visited in Feb 2014, with the Groupon offer for a 3 course sunday lunch. To be honest, the price of the Groupon was more than reasonable, which makes reviewing difficult, however, there were still some logistical issues that need to be addressed. It started with the fact that we couldn't access our Groupon voucher because the wireless internet was not... More

Thank you very much for your review. I am very pleased to see you got all the help and assistance needed from all the staff including Alvaro, the manager. The location of the hotel can indeed affect the network coverage, but with time this seems to be improving and most of the big brands have good signal strength. We have... More

We recently held a party here for aprox 85 guests. The venue was very nice food excellent and the management team could not have been more helpful.

We bought a 3 course meal for 2 from Groupon. With the price we paid (£18 for 2 people / 3 courses) we were satisfied with what we had but wouldn't be back again even on the offer. Upon arriving the grounds and building are very small in comparison to the photographs on the website. We parked up and walked... More

Oh dear, you have not enjoyed our Sunday lunch at all! I'm very sorry to hear that as it usually is very popular. It is very true that we did run out of few item on the mentioned Sunday. For some unknown reason the pork was very popular that weekend and even though we had enough to feed 20 people... More
