Booked via laterooms a 'superior room' which was to have a balcony view. On the notice from laterooms it said 'for a quiet room please ring xxxx'. So having read some reviews that explained the hotel is on an industrial estate with some businesses starting early, I rang xxxx to ask, only to get some poor person who must get... More

I would like to say what a fantastic time I had at a Christmas party on sat 6th Dec, There was a great selection of food which was delicious. The staff were brilliant and worked really hard. I was really impressed by how polite & calm they were while under pressure of a very busy evening. Well done to all... More

Pleasant hotel well situated for the town of Barnstaple and the sea at Saunton. Staff very helpful. When I stayed Christmas parties were being held. I was advised of this before confirming the booking. As it happens the bedroom was well away from the dance floor and a good nights sleep was had

The Barnstaple hotel on the outskirts of town close to a light Industrial Estate is an old fashioned low rise sprawl based around a central area including an outside pool, its not a thing of beauty. The rooms are a fair size and continue the 60's theme, but are clean and warm. Beware fairly late enforced check in time (1500hrs)... More

The hotel, pool and room were very clean. Though we did feel the trip outside to the bedroom detracted from the experience and was not mentioned when we booked our stay. the room was comfortable though slightly outdated.

Whilst this is - on first appearances- a traditional hotel, we found it great for our children of 7 and 9 years. The pool has long opening hours and the outside one is heated. The complimentary drinks and ice poles went down well- and saved us a fortune! We found the evening meal time a bit late but managed to... More

Best thing about this hotel is the indoor pool, great for a family swim -- though personally the water was much too warm for me, so not so great for an exercise swim. Room was fine, nothing special but just what you'd expect. Breakfast very good, also our evening meal in the restaurant was excellent. Staff pleasant and helpful. Downside:... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it was lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay. With regards to the distance to the town centre there are two routes into the main town both taking about 10/15 minutes - the second one is down beside the river along the tarka trail this one has no traffic...

We booked in to the Barnstaple Hotel to join an Anniversary Party being held there - so that we could walk to our room when the party was over. Thanks to the Barnstaple Western Bypass built in 2007, finding the hotel couldn't have been easier - just go over the bridge and the hotel is on the left at the... More

Initial view of the hotel was disappointing given its location on an industrial estate on the outskirts of town, it was clearly a motel in its past life. The staff on check in were pleasant and polite. The interior was very different to my initial expectation and the room a pleasant surprise too, enormous bed that proved very comfortable and... More
