A very pleasant two night stay. It was a shame that we did not have more time to spend around the delightful pool and sauna. The whole hotel is very clean and staff are efficient and polite. It was lovely to wake to the sounds of children excited about going into one of the two pools. The rooms are of... More

All the staff were friendly and efficient. the garden room was spacious and comfortable. The two heated pools are excellent. Unfortunately the bedroom had very little natural light which meant that the lights had to be on all the time. The restaurant was comfortable and served a very good breakfast. The view onto the car park was was unfortunate.

With my companies manufacturing site located in North Devon, I am frequently in the vicinity of Barnstaple but have never stayed there yet. I am happy to report that the room was very comfortable, with a very strong WiFi signal which makes it great for business trips. A good quality buffet cooked breakfast is available and is available from 7:00... More

Extremely polite and helpful staff throughout the hotel. Staff and those responsible for their training need to be congratulated. Very clean comfortable rooms.Great facilities including two swimming pools. I know I repeat myself but the approach of all staff to guests needs really was outstanding.

Several family members spent the weekend at the Barnstaple Hotel. The outside does not do the interior justice. We all found the staff delightful and exceptionally helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and the food was of first class quality. I would recommend this hotel very highly and look forward to returning.

The dining room staff were amongst the best we have had on our yearly trips of 15 years. Very friendly but professional and the food for breakfast and... More

I stayed at the Barnstaple hotel for two nights this June along with my family. I stayed in room 15 with my husband. The room was clean with nice decor and a comfortable bed. The facilities were good. My husband used the gym and pool. The service was also good. The dinner service was excellent. Staff were pleasant.

Excellent rooms, very good meals and great service. The pool and the gym looked very nice although we were too busy to use them. We were very pleased to find that we could phone the bar and order steak and chips as we drove back after working particularly late one evening. When we are next working in the area this... More

Nice place and great facilities which was let down by the noise from next door and especially the beeping from reversing vehicles, working close by. This went on in to the early hours and ruined my stay.
