We stayed at Moorlands for two nights recently. The decor is a little dated, but the business has only recently changed hands and the new owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. Spotlessly clean and quiet with a comfy bed and an excellent breakfast - all in all a good choice!

We are sat in the lounge of the hotel after a very long journey just days after the 10th anniversary of my young sons death for a much needed break and so far so good! Fantastic welcome, homely and welcoming patrons, beautiful building. We were welcomed by the gorgeous Chloe (just turned 3!), desi and mark and made to feel... More

Nice hotel- clean and comfortable with a very obliging host. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice of both Full English, Toast, Juice & Wheaties etc. Situated in a very quiet and picturesque area with some nice local pubs for evening meals & drinks. Close to Lynton and Lynmouth The only minor let down was that the hotel did... More

We stayed at Moorlands for a week and stayed in the Dean suite as we had our little dog with us. What a fantastic place. Desi and Mark are lovely people. Desi cooked fantastic breakfasts, we had a small but could have had a large if we wanted. Our little dog settled so well and really enjoyed it as much... More

Moorlands I stayed at Moorlands, recently taken over by Desi and Mark, as I was visiting the May 2015 Gala Day at Woody Bay Station on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. In a former life Moorlands had been the Station Hotel, so literally a 50m walk up the path from the station platform. The place was lovely and warm as... More

The former station hotel is perfect for visiting the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, and it's a beautiful part of the world to stay. The grounds of the hotel are quite large and very pretty. The first impression of the hotel inside is that it is a little dated. It must be said, though, that the new owners have got the... More

As other reviews have stated the hotel is well signposted. We stayed at the hotel as it has a no refund policy, therfore the owners let us transfer dates rather than loose out money. Overall the owners were firendly, however the hotel rate we paid was a bit over the top as the rooms were dated although the bathroom was... More

We stayed in moorlands self catering dean suite. Very clean and comfortable. This suite has a garden so was perfect for our dog. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. There are lots of stunning places to see just a short drive away. Thank you :-)

Earlier this month I stayed at Moorlands with my wife (and dog) in the ground floor Dean apartment. In september 2011 I stayed in the upstairs Bodley Suite and was very impressed and I was equally satisfied with the Dean apartment. Being situated on the ground floor with the entrance into the kitchen (with a tiled floor) was very handy... More

Moorlands is well signed and is located at the end of its own private driveMy niece got married at the end of June and held her wedding reception about a mile from Moorlands.
