Found this little gem last minute whilst getting caught short in Plymouth. If you play golf, enjoy a spa, enjoy really good food, the pleasure of a traditional decorated property or just piece and quiet look no further this. Hotel ticks all of them and it is cheap as chip considering what I would've been prepared to pay. I'm definitely... More

What fantastic value the afternoon tea is. And you can only have one between two so do not order one each. You get 2 sandwiches, 2 tray bakes and 2 slices of tart.... Not to mention 2 scones with jam and clotted cream. With a big pot of tea. Fantastic value at just under £11. Sit outside on a sunny... More

I recently visited to plan a birthday celebration. The Elfordleigh holds special memories as its where I got married 24 years ago! I have to say it's not changed much! It has lost its sparkle and does not seem to of kept up a good appearance. The dining room looked very dated. We had a look around and the toilets... More

Dear Michele, Thank you for taking the time to write a review although a little harsh. I would like to point out that we do not have security staff and wonder if you could enlighten me further. I also feel that giving us a rating worse than Macdonalds and KFC is somewhat strange. We do realise that yes we are... More

Disappointed about my stay here in light of good reviews, but may depend on why you are staying. I arrived relatively late in the evening, prior to business the following day. Parking was good, and checkin efficient. The room was quite large, but functional, despite it's golf course name. Wifi didn't work unless you sat in the corridor outside the... More

Dear Mike, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Please accept my apologies for our poor internet service.

Hopefully in the future we will be able to offer a... More

The service here could not be faulted, from the welcoming smile to the 'nothing is too much' attitude. All the staff in every part of the hotel were helpful and friendly. The room was huge and overlooked the golf course and surrounding countryside, the pool and facilities were clean, well maintained and great to use. The hotel is an old... More

As a Devon native I have known this hotel for decades. It is in a beautiful setting with a picturesque golf-course, well-equipped gym (although it needs some maintenance), and decent pool. The rooms and decor are a little faded now, and could do with an upgrade - this is a fine line to walk because the bar and lounge have... More

We have stayed here a couple of times before, so were very surprised when we were shown to a double room which was very small and tired looking. Frayed carpets and unappealing bathroom. When we went down to the reception she told us that previously we must have been upgraded to a superior room, which was £10 more per night,... More

Myself, my mother and her friend stayed at Elfordleigh on Friday evening (27 Feb 2015) and we were so impressed. Each and every single member of staff we met were polite, helpful, friendly and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay, from the reception team in the hotel - particularly the head receptionist nothing was too...
