I've used the hotel three times in the last two months for business trips. The rooms are clean and well equiped with en-suite, tv (including Sky Sports) and Wi-Fi freely available. The restaurant serves good food which is a little better than that I have encountered elsewhere whilst the breakfast buffet is also good. The indoor and outdoor pools and... More

The hotel is something of a timewarp with tired (and very brown) décor. Noise also travels from other rooms and the corridor - luckily the guests were quiet. The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom was unpleasant: worn sanitary ware; a dirty bath (stray hairs that definitely did not belong to me); and a toilet roll holder ridiculously far... More

From the outside it looks a rather bizarre mish-mash of buildings, and its on the featureless edge of a light industrial estate but inside all is stylish, comfortable and top quality. My room adjacent to the outside pool was a good size. Be advised that some rooms like mine are not part of the main building - I had a... More

Property has no elevator is tired and in need of make-over. Restaurant and Bar closed at 21:00h and it was too far to walk into Town to restaurants. Many of the guests seemed to be elderly and they struggled with the stairs.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Unfortunately due to the design of the Hotel we are unable to fit an elevator which guests are made aware of at time of booking, we do have ground floor rooms which are offered to any guests that may find the stairs a difficulty.

We were on a limited time line and had a set itinerary. The night we stayed in Barnstaple was not for this hotel but a rest point between St Ives and Bath. We found the hotel to be clean friendly and spacious. We initially booked and paid for the downstairs outside access rooms (as it was only a stopover), but... More
