Stunning views and location. Perfect little hideaway any time of year! The rooms are clean, comfy with good facilities and beautiful views of the sea and coast. Staff a friendly and helpful and the food is much better than expected-reviews had said it's pub food, but I would say slightly better than your average pub. Already looking to book for... More

As a result of a cycling accident, a friend and I were looked after exceptionally well by the very friendly staff at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble, and the landlord very kindly drove me to Barnstaple hospital after my friend's accident. I wasn't booked in, but was given a room along with sandwiches, a toothbrush, nightshirt and hairbrush.... More

Old hotel but amazing spot on the water. Had the slider trio in the pub & was delicious. Breakfast very good as well. No view from our room and noise from pub below, but didn't go on too late as it was a Sunday night. Very windy so had to keep doors & windows closed.

We were doing the Coastal path walk from Clovelly and stayed for one night. The hotel was comfortable with the best views. I have been visiting Hartland Quay since I was a child. I love it! The only disappointment we had was our dinner in the pub :-( The breakfast was good. The staff were excellent. It is expensive at£100... More

Fabulous location and on a hot, sunny day we were ready for a late lunch. We ordered crab sandwiches, advertised at £7.95, which could have been overpriced. However, we were then told that they had run out. We therefore overcame our disappointment and ordered the following: ham and mustard sandwich: chicken, bacon and cheese sandwich: cranberry and brie sandwich and... More

This is a location that is stunningly beautiful. Standard pub grub... Nothing fancy so don't expect high quality cuisine... But for a Pub meal in lovely setting cannot be beaten... Selection of beers...

What a fantastic location. Practically surrounded by the sea. Plenty of places to park although I would imagine it gets very busy in summer. My room was a little dated but in keeping with the rural coastal location and well suited to a stop off for the coast path walk. The food was very reasonable. (Three mixed "sliders" with chips...

The hotel is a lot bigger and more active than the south west path book suggests, this is not a bad thing. Rooms are fairly recently redecorated, although masses of water leaked on to the floor from the shower. There are baths in some rooms. Staff were amateur and food was disappointing. Great location, good hotel poor management.
