While we found the welcome friendly enough, this seemed more B&B than hotel. Out in the sticks, it was quiet and the breakfast good. Ottery is not signposted except from the road at Chipshop (sic) opposite a decent pub.

This hotel has been owned by the current owner, Debbie, and her husband since May 2013, so when reading reviews, it's only fair to consider those from then onwards. We'd read great stuff about the food and service, which did not disappoint, and with the amazon local deal we had, we ended up feeling as if we were cheating the... More

Stayed here for three nights. On arrival we were made to feel welcome by the owners mum. The hotel is around 3 miles from Tavistock a few hundred yards from the hamlet of Chipshop (Used this as the satnav code and found hotel easily). A quiet and rural location. The bedroom was clean and tidy with a shower room. The... More

In a small village called Ottery, about 2 miles from Tavistock, in the middle of nowhere, you will find this paradise of welcoming people and fantastic food. Debbie, the owner and her mum, Yvonne and all the team, make you so welcome, nothing is too much trouble to make your stay perfect. Dean the chef is brilliant, his presentation and... More

We came back yesterday from a lovely two night stay we bought as a voucher. A very secluded hotel which we would never have found without our Sat Nav. We arrived early and were given a lovely welcome by owner Debbie and her mum. We were shown around and shown to our room - room 4 - cosy with a... More

I would never have found this welcoming B & B if not for the internet. Stayed 2nights with offer voucher. Lovely people, cosy room,excellent food, and small bar.We were even given a lift to the local pub, as all the family were going that evening and it was uphill. They all do an excellent job of welcoming you to their... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of this week. From the start we felt very welcome, despite arriving rather early. We were shown to our room (6), which I booked on account of the roll-top bath! We had a voucher offer but this room was a little extra, worth it for the bath although... More

Everything was good at this family owned, dog friendly, eight bedroomed B&B. The welcome, friendliness and hosting skills of the owners/staff far overshadowed any minor niggles we observed during our stay. Our downstairs twin room was clean and well equipped with plenty of coat hangers, drawer space, comfy chairs and a bedside table and lamp each. It was situated just... More

Did a voucher, and did not have high expectations,but we had a lovely time. Family run hotel, that appears to welcome you into the family and embrace you, attentive, kind and with a good sense of humor. Dog friendly room with bed and bowls, but we had brought ours, but really caring of Alice our pooch- she even had a... More

Set down a country lane a few miles from Tavistock, the Coach House is an excellent base for visiting Dartmoor, Plymouth etc. Can only echo previous comments regarding the warm welcome and hospitality shown by Debbie and Yvonne and the high standards set in the kitchen with their full "Devonshire" breakfast being a great start to the day. So glad... More
