We had our very special Anniversary Celebration at this wonderful Hotel. Jennifer and Brian were very attentive, and ensured everything went smoothly. Several stayed overnight in very comfortable beds, needed after all the wonderful food and celebratory drinks!! After a stroll round the grounds and a hearty breakfast, our visitors went their different ways. Thanks to all the staff for... More

Super location, nice building, friendly staff, great breakfast. But bathroom is tiny and cramped, basin very very small, limited room for wash bags etc. Shower was a dribble. Room took ages to warm up after turning rad up. Why is there a caffatiere in the room with no coffee. Barely value for the reduced rate we paid (£90). Definitely not... More

Enjoyed two peaceful nights whilst visiting friends. Ask for a river view, we were given room "Hubbastone" on the first floor which was delightful with views of the gardens and river. The bathroom was rather small but perfectly adequate. The restaurant was not open during our stay but we were given two excellent recommendations for nearby places to eat. First... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights 16-18th February, We arrived quite late on the Sunday evening and had a very very warm welcome from Brian and Jennifer! After a little chat we was shown to our room, the crows nest! This is a very spacious room with a balcony and amazing views of the garden and the river... More

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times, so when visiting friends in the area it was our first choice for somewhere to have an evening meal on 16th February. We received a very genuinely warm welcome from the staff and settled to pre dinner drinks, in front of the fire, in a very comfortable lounge. The dinner... More

For the second time we have enjoyed the fantastic Valentines Night dinner here - it is faultless! Warm reception, champagne and tasty canapes in the cosy drawing room and then guided to your table for dinner. The food is extremely tasteful, elegantly presented and served with the right amount of warmth and discretion. There are lovely extra touches on the... More

Stayed during the Winter deluge and was only 1 of 4 guests. Dinner was not available and we had to let ourselves in at night 10:15pm. Rooms were very dated and the whole hotel cluttered with stuff like teddy bears and guest books to write your comments. Claustrophobic. The building is old and majestic and set in beautiful gardens. Inside... More

Stayed for a weekend with friends for a special wedding. A fairy tail location over looking the bay offering a picture perfect setting. Private family run hotel, great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food. Rooms very clean and comfortable with panoramic views close to beautiful beaches and Devon countryside. Highly recommend a visit.

I stayed here for one night on a work-based trip and wished I was staying longer. Yeolden House is a beautiful Victorian House with all the appropriate features but also modern comforts. The welcome from Jennifer could not have been friendlier, but not overdone or intrusive. The breakfast was first class, the bed comfortable, the room was comfortable and clean... More
