Have stayed at the Brend Hotel in Barnstaple before and once again found it to be a first class place to stay. The room was first class, the leisure facilities extremely good and the food excellent. The service one gets right from reception through to bar and restaurant is second to none with all staff being very friendly with nothing... More

Stayed a couple of times. Seems a very mixed up place. Some bits, like the corridors and the staff seem to be from the 1970s. Staff seemed to have been told to treat the guests with a politeness that appeared almost contrived and bordered on obsequiousness. Had a meal - the vegetables were so plentiful I could have fed a...

Used the hotel as part of a reunion weekend based there, the catering for over 100 people sitting for diner was excellent as was the service.Well done. The property is in an unusual location as seems to be on the edge of an industrial park but with the facilities provided it could be anywhere.

Four of us with another couple stayed here for a wedding weekend in north Devon. It did what it sis on the tin, as they say. It was comfortable but for me struggling with an arthritic hip it was difficult with no lift. The breakfast staff were efficient and considerate and the food was good. Reception was courteous and as... More

I've stayed there with my boyfriend and couldn't be better. Lovely staff and superb pool and restaurant. 100% recommend. The room was big and the bed couldn't be more comfortable. Nice facilities in the room. Nice shower and peaceful location.

I attended a reunion with a number of friends. I was particularly impressed with the standard of service of the staff in the dining room. This was most evident at breakfast, when the room was very busy. Well done The Barnstaple Hotel.

Excelllent service from courteous & friendly staff. Room with balcony overlooking the pool & a six foot wide bed. Breakfast to cater for all needs & appetites, but the food highlight was the roast beef dinner on Friday & the roast lamb on Saturday. Out of this world. And all an easy stroll from the town centre. Certainly recommended &... More

We stayed overnight for a reunion dinner. The hotel is located within an easy walk of the town centre and has excellent leisure facilities including an indoor and outdoor pool. The rooms are well appointed and quiet with a comfortable bed. The bar and dining facilities were ideal for a large function. The food and service at dinner and breakfast... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay in The Barnstaple Hotel. Accommodation was very good; rooms were clean and comfortable. All meals were excellent - quality of food was superb with first class service. Plenty of parking and for those not driving it is ideally situated close to the railway station and the town centre is within walking distance.

Spent a night on business, comfy modern room, at good value prebooked rate. Didnt eat or have breakfast but menu looked good and reasonable. Swam in indoor pool (great, but busy both times I went) and a terrific gym facilities. Staff really polite and helpful. A great 3 star hotel, about 10 minutes walk from town. Not picturesque, so more... More
