This hotel was originally a motel but has been refurbished to provide light and airy rooms, our room overlooked the pool area. There is a large gym and an inside & outside pool. We stayed here two nights whilst attending a family wedding at another hotel in the town and I have to say we definitely had the better hotel.... More

...and you are not part of it. For me, a fundamental part of any hotel stay is being able to sleep - here this was impossible due to noise. There was a function going on during our one night stay - we were told about this via email, but only after we had made our booking and we were unable... More

The kids club is great value and the meals in the restaurant were really tasty and also excellent value. The staff are very friendly, polite and professional. We met suzie on reception who... More

We checked in for an overnight stay last night. Lovely, modern hotel that's spotlessly clean. The staff are tremendously helpful and friendly and the facilities are excellent. The only thing I would say is it is unbelievably noisy. If this is somewhere you want to book into because you need to "get your head down", I wouldn't bother. We were... More

We wanted a week (Mon-Fri) break in north Devon and after looking at reviews of optional hotels, chose the Barnstaple. Due to late booking and it being so busy we stayed only on the Monday and Wednesday night. We stated at the sister hotel, Park hotel on the Tue night. I have two boys aged 5 and 7. Plenty of... More

The hotel is on the outskirts of Barnstaple, but a lovely hotel, with exactly what we were looking for. Fab room. Very clean. Friendly staff. Kids loved the pools. Meal in the bar was very reasonable too. Breakfast all you can eat ! (self-serve). Would definitely recommend. Less than 5 mins drive from the train station too ! Next door... More

If you are on holiday with kids and are used to a B&B you will probably love it, so don't be put off, but... More
