We had a family birthday celebration this weekend. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was excellent. Our rooms were beautiful, with real attention to detail (including a 'nesspresso' machine, and chocs on the pillow!). The gardens were lovely and it is set with stunning views. Compared to a stay at a Dartmoor hotel belonging to... More

6 of us stayed to celebrate my mums birthday this weekend, and all had the most wonderful time. The hotel staff were delightful and our rooms were beautiful. We had a delicious evening meal, afternoon tea, lunch and breakfast! A lovely place.

We stayed here for a night after our wedding as a quick get away. We stayed in a beautifully furnished 'Garden room' with a hot tub out on the terrace. The hotel is so quiet, and it was perfect watching the stars outside until late at night. It felt a bit weird being just a thin fence away from other... More

A stylish friendly hotel in glorious surroundings, well furnished rooms and a superb restaurant combines to provide gusts with the ideal stopover /break. There are a couple of rooms that have hot tub on the balcony, a glass of champagne adds to the luxury. The hotel provides free access to the spa for guests and expanded spa times for guests... More

We have just stayed in one of the hot tub rooms for 2 nights, and came back home this afternoon feeling completely de-stressed. You can use the Spa facilities as much as you like, which is utterly relaxing and good fun! The garden with our room was divine.. A lovely sun trap with table and chairs and the lovely surrounding...

Stayed one night. Had excellent cream tea, and breakfast. Staff helpful (checked us in early and out late). Spa facilities small, but good. Also a small gym. Gardens very pleasant. Will revisit, and stay longer.

The room was first class, and the view excellent. The bathroom/wetroom was also cavernous and pleasant. Dinner was good, but the amount of jus accompanying my beef dish was vanishingly slight. the restaurant was also incredibly hot and everyone was complaining. WiFi was a problem - got my iPhone connected immediately but even with the help of someone knowledgeable at... More

This is the first time I have booked a room for a business meeting with lunch here. Although the meeting room was ok -lunch was strange to say the least. Colleagues had croque Monsieur - what arrived was eggy bread with melted cheese and ham... No béchamel sauce in site. I had a Ceaser salad -which arrived with cubed white... More
