Very helpful staff prior to arrival - I was travelling with elderly disabled father so we had to ensure we had ground floor rooms. Walk in wet room, high ceiling bedrooms with high windows that unfortunately are not reachable, so a little claustrophobic. These bedrooms right next to the lift that takes you to car park, which is a newish... More

She thoroughly enjoyed her first fish in batter for years and I enjoyed... More

The whole hotel was clean and the staff very pleasant. The dining room was spotless with clean white table cloths and a pleasant setting. We had a very simple meal but it was served as if their reputation depended upon it. We would and have recommended this place to all folk.

In the middle of Tavistock there is great variety of shops and the pannier market with a multitude of stalls is only avery short walk away. Within just a few miles is the vast... More

Fantastic break! A truly dog-friendly hotel, beautiful surroundings and delicious food. The friendly staff couldn't do enough for me and my canine companion, and our Christmas was made very special. All rooms and facilities are kept immaculately clean and well furnished, so please don't think that any compromises are made because dogs are welcome. I would definitely go back.

Afternoon tea was absolutely amazing as a birthday treat. The range of sandwiches and cakes was lovely although could have done with little flags to tell you what each filling was and what each cake was. Staff were all friendly & polite, place was clean and tidy with a lovely atmosphere.

First off, lots of parking. A town centre hotel with parking is always a benefit. We were in a group and very well looked after - good food in a good private dining room. Bedroom was good. Choice of beer was a bit lacking in my opinion, but that is a personal thing.Overall, very good. I would stay again, which... More
