We found this hotel on the internet and were very pleased with the quality. We arrived on the Sunday and had the carvery - lots of meats/veg to choose from and some amazing desserts. All the staff were very professional and helpful. When we checked in we were upgraded to a first floor room overlooking the garden. I always judge... More

My partner and I, had been to ilfracombe and woolacombe for the day and had a last minute decision to stay away for the night. Could not find any in woolacombe so decided to look at Barnstaple! What a great idea that was! We came across this gem, nothing was too much to ask! Great room service and food from... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. The room was small but had everything we needed - and especially a very comfortable bed. We loved the small indoor swimming pool (there is also a seasonal outdoor pool which is set in the gardens of the hotel). I also made use of the hotel's gym which contained weight machine's... More

As with other reviews as expected of a Brend Hotel a very good standard. The staff are extremely professional, obliging with a warm friendly approach, particularly in the restaurant. Having had an evening meal, a lovely breakfast and superb sunday carvery it was well worth the stay. Having stayed at the hotel before and found the rooms albeit a little... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We have an on-going refurbishment programme within the Brend Group which we are proud of. Unfortunately room 38 is one of our smaller rooms, when possible we will move guests from a room that they are dissatisfied with. We hope to welcome you back in the future. More

Little bit biased as worked here in 70/71 whilst at local Grammar School doing A levels. Came down from Bristol to attend event and thought staying in the old place would be fun! Sure the design is of the era but very well maintained, location is even better now as it's quite close to Taw Bridge. Comfortable Superior room with... More

Warm, welcoming, impeccable staff, value for money. Don't be put off by its position on an inductrail estate! Or by its 1960 decor. It is a well-run and very comfortable hotel. I spent two nights, dinner, bed & breakfast. I couldn't fault it. I've used the excellent heated indoor pool on a previous visit.

It was a bit of a walk from the car park to the reception in the pouring rain but the reception gave a really warm welcome. The receptionist in the evening was excellent, full of information about getting into town and parking and also explaining the restaurant in the hotel was also open. The room service food we ordered was... More

Stayed here for just one night with a work colleague for a flying visit. A flying visit was all that was needed to see how nice this hotel was. The food in the bar & restaurant is really good, and a ridiculous good offer in the restaurant for an evening meal. 20 quid for 2 courses and a beer/glass of... More
