I've never stayed here before but have been to several functions here and used the Leisure Club. Having now stayed I can recommend it. Room was very comfortable and was by the outdoor pool, so noise from outside was slightly disturbing and staff moving around quite early could be a little quieter. Breakfast was excellent and how great to have... More

As we approached the hotel, by car, we were somewhat apprehensive as neither the location or the exterior of the hotel inspired any confidence. However this was soon dispelled as there was plenty of parking and the lady on reception was welcoming and helpfull. Our room was a little snug but was smarth, modern and to a good standard with...

Stayed here for a Northern Soul Weekender in July 2016. Everything was perfect. Nice clean rooms. The Bar staff were exceptional. Quick Service and nothing was ever too much trouble. The Manager and Staff in the restaurant were without doubt the best we have seen in a long time. As there was a lot of Northern Soulers we had to... More

This hotel, although it looks more like a motel from certain angles, embraces all that is good about Devon, it's friendly, cheerful and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The food in the restaurant is excellent and very good value for money. I will certainly use this hotel on future occasions.

Service was great, esp. Martin from the restaurant, pool indoor and outdoor just perfect and the room clean and comfortable. The foot in the Restaurant was amazing. The only things missing was a safe and a minibar or fridge to cool our stuff.

When I first stayed in the Barnstaple Hotel in 1987 it was called the Barnstaple Motel. Back then it resembled something like the set of Crossroads, a popular Soap in the 1970's and early 80's. And to me, it's still a motel in style if not in substance. Yes, they've added a gym and indoor swimming pool, they've updated the... More
