The quirkiness and maybe a few shortcomings of this hotel are more than made up for by the friendly helpfulness of the staff, its fascinating history and magnificent setting overlooking the Exe Valley. We took advantage of the winter break rate, which was very good value. Our dog was made more than welcome, and there are beautiful walks to enjoy.... More

We stayed one night having found the hotel accidentally back in October. We.came for our wedding anniversary. The rooms are comfortable warm and clean,the dinner and breakfast were very good but the service and helpfulness of the staff was brilliant. They let our little dog,who was languishing in a cold car join us in the warm. Also when I asked... More

We stayed in this hotel in order to visit friends nearby, enjoy walks from the door-step and explore Exeter. We had a comfortable stay and were made welcome by the staff, specially Maggie on reception and Mike in the bar. Mike kept the bar open so my husband could watch Match of the Day without me having to have it... More

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, and will continue to do so. The hotel is situated just some 9 miles from Exeter in Dunchideock. The hotel is not your usual run of the mill layout. Of the many rooms I have stayed in, the style and layout differs between them. As does the views of the rolling... More

Our family stay here at least once a year and are never disappointed. It is worth the drive out of Exeter to stay in beautiful surroundings and with fantastic views. The refurbished rooms are extremely comfortable with modern bathrooms. The staff are friendly and efficient. The dinner and breakfasts were excellent as was the service. We look forward to our...

Met with a friend for a dinner date, and the hotel was stunning outside but lacked atmosphere inside, it is very old fashioned but not in a stylish way. We went to the bar and the waiter was very attentive, so attentive that it was a bit over bearing and we couldnt have a private conversation. We were eventually called... More

the hotel is so quiet and peaceful with views to die for. The food was also excellent and probably the best we've tasted.It was so good to order breakfast made to order rather than buffet style so often served. The grand hotel offers such arelaxing time away.
