I stayed at the Moorlands during my recent HF Holidays 4-night walking tour of “Haytor, Dartmoor, & the Devon Coast”. This was the perfect gateway to visit the wilds of Dartmoor National Park and just down the street to the visitor center. I had always wanted to stay here as this is where Agatha Christie penned her first crime novel,... More

Stayed here on a very reasonable B&B rate for a few nights. Had a room at the back on the top floor with views right out over the gardens to the sea at Teignmouth. Room was in good condition, I think they must have had work done to them in the last few years, certainly nothing like some of the... More

Lovely room with view over the hotel garden and countryside. Comfortable bed. Shower is small and ok except water temperature varies. Free Wifi appreciated. Breakfast and evening meals excellent. Staff friendly and very helpful. Armchairs in the room have seen better times and too low for sitting at the desk.

We loved the 4 nights we were there. Our room felt like home……airy & large. The dining room was elegant but homey. The food was amazing! The service was equally amazing. Loved he lounge & the wonderful chandelier. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants a restful vacation.

I have recently returned from a four day group walking holiday based at the Moorlands Hotel. This was my first HF Holiday and I was very impressed. As other writers have said, the position of the Hotel is right on the moor. Our bedroom was on the first floor and was spacious and comfortable with a good en suite bathroom.... More

We went walking whilst our daughter attended a really well organised multi activity week which included canoeing, rock climbing and body boarding amongst other things. Food really great and plenty of it. All the staff really helpful and the entertainment really good. We enjoyed a falconry... More

I stayed here on a short walking holiday with HF Holidays, who own the property. I felt the room was better than the other HF property I stayed at in the Lake District. The common rooms were very smart and the food served was good. One minor grumble was that internet access was very slow. The hotel is between Bovey... More
