Arriving rather late on a winter’s evening we could not have been made more welcome by the owner, who also presented breakfast next day cooked just the way we like. The property has been extensively modernised in a tasteful style, is easy to find (signposted) and located at a walkable distance to the town centre. Heartily recommended if you are... More

The hotel is an 1870 Victorian building which was taken over by the current owners in January of this year, much work has... More

As we had arrived by train Steve took us to the boat for Lundy next morning .We were delighted with the hotel. The furnishings are wonderful and the service fantastic. Cannot recommend it too highly!!! We are looking forward... More

Considering Jane and Steve have owned this stunning place for less than a year, they are doing a cracking job bringing the hotel up to its full glory. Great service and a scrumptious cooked breakfast. Well situated for visiting surrounding areas. A place I would recommend and certainly be back to myself. I wish Jane and Steve all the best... More

Steve was very helpful in recommending places to visit and eat. We had fantastic views across the river. We would love to return to Bideford and... More

I stayed here for one night and had a single room with ensuite shower. Steve and Jane were very welcoming and keen to make my stay as pleasant as possible - tea on arrival etc. My room was fine - not large and the furniture a little dated. However, it was spotlessly clean and the shower in my (fairly small)... More

Hotel was easy to find and in a nice location - easy walk into Bideford and easy access to the A39 (along a narrow lane). Received a very friendly greeting from the owners and was shown to my room. I had a single room which was compact but fine for the few nights I was there. Decor was fresh and... More
