Stayed here for one night on a deal which included 3 course dinner. The hotel is beautifully located in quiet lane overlooking the river. The hotel has great character and wonderful stained glass. Our room, the hubba stone, had a great river view and balcony and was very comfortable with sofa and footstool, and split level bedroom area. The bed... More

A party of twelve of us had dinner last night at Yeoldon House. I was expecting great things as the hotel's cuisine had come highly recommended by many. We were not disappointed. In fact, I feel privileged to say that the food prepared by their genius chef Dan Tugwell, was outstanding. Invariably, when eating out, there will be some elements... More

Only found Hotel last minute as visiting family for 1 day and what a find. The setting was amazing as you arrive. There was a lovely welcome and nothing was to much trouble as we had afternoon tea on arrival. The room was dated but had everything you needed, it was fully equipped and the bed was enormous. We had... More

If you want fine dining at a sensible price go to this hotel. They're after a Michelin star...and when they get, which they will, they'll naturally increase their prices. So for a top quality hotel, if not quite perfect stay and utterly superb cuisine with a glorious river view and six star attentiveness this is your place.

My daughter and I were very glad we booked this hotel, based on its TripAdvisor reviews. We felt welcome from the minute we stepped in the door. Nothing was too difficult, with the owners going out of their way to make our stay the best it could be. Our room, Crows Nest, was comfortable and spacious, with a wonderful balcony... More

We stayed here after a recommendation and were not disappointed. The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly after our long drive. We were then shown to spacious rooms with balconies overlooking the river. The bathrooms were immaculately clean. Plenty of towels and lovely comfy bed. Food was very good (if a little pricey) but they accommodated us well... More

We spent three days over the Christmas period at Yeoldon House Hotel. It was a fantastic experience. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and their staff and they all work together as a great team. The food was delicious and imaginative, especially the Twelve Days of Christmas taster menu on Christmas Eve. The champagne breakfast on Christmas Day... More

We made a last minute booking to stay at Yeolden House Hotel over new year. The hotel is in a gorgeous location overlooking the river and not far from the town of Bideford (even on new year the taxi ride was only £5 each way). We were made to feel extremely welcome by the owners and really couldn't fault the... More

If you like outdated overpriced rooms with mildew coated bathroom ensuite and a frankly dangerous balcony, all presided by over-bearing, borderline intimidating, owners then I recommend staying here in the 'crows nest' room.
