We're staying an extra night. Entrance to hotel is down a narrow lane past old industrial buildings. But hotel has a great setting with large gardens and adjacent to town park dedicated to Coleridge. Very friendly and obliging owners. Very much value for money.

I stayed here for two weeks whilst doing some training for work. The rooms were were clean and presentable and the staff were really friendly. The owners and the staff made you feel very welcome and the food was amazing. Highly recommended :)

I only stayed one night with my elderly mother. We had trouble finding the hotel but once we entered we were made to feel welcome straight away. Our room was simple but very comfortable with everything we needed. We enjoyed dinner and the staff were just lovely. Breakfast the next morning was just delicious. In terms of location, it is...

My brother came down from Berkshire at very short notice and they managed to find him a room and the service was excellent and so were the prices. After joining him for breakfast on the Sunday i can seriously recommend the breakfast

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.
