This hotel is well worth finding being set in a beautiful, peaceful location. The owners and staff were really friendly and helpful. The evening meal and breakfast were excellent and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Our hosts were great and worked very hard. The breakfast was lovely and no one asked us what we wanted for breakfast the night before which was nice. The room was clean and ok somehow though it didn't quite do it for us. The bar was big and typically country style , very quiet though. Our meals were good but... More

I have stayed at The Rising Sun a couple of times now and have found the staff very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. It is situated in a quiet country setting but a short drive to the main A38 road. The bedroom has everything you need tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits, a very comfortable... More

Staying at 'The Rising Sun' Hotel in a delightful part of Devon was the perfect start to the UK leg of our Golden Gap year. Gary and Sarah were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome. The room was furnished nicely, very clean and quiet with a private entrance from the main part of the pub. We enjoyed 2... More

Was recommended by friends to stay here. So I did for a couple of nights for a college reunion. Very good room comfortable bed. The English breakfast was amazing. The owners are lovely people and we're very helpful.

We called in here by chance but had such a lovely meal that we will make an effort to call again! We saw the sign on the A38, south bound just after the Newton Abbot junction and before the Ashburton slip road. Lots of tempting choice on the menu for meals and desserts, and reasonable portions which are good value.... More

We have just returned from a stay at The Rising Sun st Woodland. Took a punt on the internet and how right we were to try it. We have two large dogs that were made very welcome, excellent facilities and good food and great atmosphere. We will definately visit again.

Wasn't our first choice, but should have been! Will be back to eat here again, and very soon. I had the lamb medallions and the meat was cooked to perfection. Came with smoked mash which was an enigma and a delight! All the food we ordered was tasty, well cooked, well seasoned, and priced reasonably. We found the bar staff... More
