Booked this hotel purely by chance but will definately return. Great location for exploring the area and best of all there is no need to find somewhere to eat as the food is outstanding. fresh,tasty and served with a smile. My wife being a ceoliac was catered for without any fuss. Thank you to the owners.

I stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. I was visiting family, recently moved to this area. The location is excellent being only 5 -10 minutes walk from the town centre and shops. It is in an unusual setting being placed between the river Otter and several tributaries and weirs. This means it is very quiet with some very pleasant... More

Stayed at the Tumbling Weir while working in the area. It's fairly basic accomodation, but the service was friendly and efficient. Good location near centre of Ottery, and plenty of parking space. Breakfast was ok, and all in all the stay was good value for money.

Room was perfect - comfy beds, usual tea/coffe facilities etc but the owners Paul and Lyn and their staff were so wonderful, the food was fantastic and I don't think they get enough recognition for the hard work.

We found the Tumbling Weir by accident on the internet and decided it looked the perfect spot for a quick break. We weren't wrong! The room was comfortable & clean with everything we could need. Dinner was superb with just enough to choose from on the menu. We find too much choice means the quality goes downhill. It certainly wasn't... More

We needed somewhere to break our journey on way to Cornwall and this was the perfect place .We were given a warm welcome on arrival and dinner was pretty good.Our room was clean and quiet and the bed comfortable .The Tumbling Weir had everything we needed to send us on our way and I would happily stay there again.

Room was very clean and and comfortable, it had everything everything I needed. Bathroom spotless and loads of hot water. Beautiful view over... More

Rooms - perfectly comfortable with no attempt ( good ) at camp or swank. And really great breakfast to boot. Prices moderate ( not cheap ) but service at al... More

We were the only people staying here so it was understandably very quiet. The room was fine as was the breakfast. Both owners were very pleasant and we had no complaints. We did not eat here in the evening.
