We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a large family get together. The Hotel is nicely appointed and well kept, if a little stuffy in warm weather. Breakfast is superb with a wide choice of items available except in the case of fruit juice, which is limited to orange, orange or orange. There is ample off road parking... More

Had a small uncomfortable single bed. Tv didn't work properly had to ask three times for someone to fix the problem. The food in the restaurant was terrible. The carvery was well below average and the breakfast was poor quality and extremely greasy , the thought of it makes me feel sick. The decor was very old fashioned, wing back... More

Stayed at the 'Devon' for just one night as we were breaking the long trip to Cornwall from the North for the night. The room was small but clean with a comfy bed, adequate for a short stay given the price in this area. We dined in the restaurant and had a lovely evening meal. Breakfast was ok but limited... More

Stayed one night only and that was long enough. We asked for a double room and we got a single room with two single beds pushed together with barely any space on one side of the bed. In that narrow space between the bed and the window there was a mobile air conditioning unit and a flat screen TV. In... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I am sorry to hear it was not up to the high standards we strive to maintain. During the recent hot weather we have raced to adapt by buying the smallest air conditioning units we can to ensure our guests are as comfortable as possible. I am sorry that it was an... More

Visited for the first time this weekend for a friends wedding. This was my first wedding as the official photographer and I have to say the staff were brilliant at helping set up some shots so a big thank you to you for that. Everything was very well organised and you couldn't have asked for anything better. The ceremony and... More

Business stay 2 -4 July. Slightly querky rooms but beautifully presented. Was there for some very hot weather and inability to open windows beyond a small crack meant an uncomfortably hot room. My room had a bulky air conditioning unit that worked but I could not get the hose extracting hot air properly out as the windows would not open... More

Think 3 steps down to bathroom from bedroom a bit much for pensioners. I have only just had a heart bypass too. Should have asked for another room but we were only staying one night. Found the steps dangerous at night. The food was good service could have been friendlier. The carpet in reception and up stairs had same mess... More
