The Lord Haldon Hotel is a very peaceful hotel, with beautiful open views over rural Devon. Yet it is also very handy for Exeter, 10 to 15 minutes drive away. It is a slightly old-fashioned hotel which clearly shows its former country house roots. There is no lift for instance, floors feel uneven and our room had a wash-basin in... More

Your nervous drive down winding lanes, accompanied by confusing sat nav instructions are both rewarded as you get to the end of the drive and the view over rolling Devon countryside unfolds before you. There's a friendly welcome, simple rooms, with all important comfortable beds, and teh food is good too. The hotel is wonderfully quiet at night. For me... More

We chose The Lord Haldon as a stopping place on our trip to Cornwall, expecting a comfortable but average experience it being part of a chain of hotels. Instead we had a superb experience. Firstly what a lovely location and excellent directions to reach it. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who directed us to our room, 21,... More

Went to this hotel simply because we love the Best Western ethos but the Passage Hotel at Newton Abbott was not available and we wanted to stay in the area. It's a curious mix of country pile meets 21st century. Whilst only being a short drive into Exeter it is, literally, in the middle of nowhere. Quite how staff and... More

Wonderful scenery, friendly helpful staff, excellent food. All in all a perfect weekend. Special mention to Lauren who planned the wedding reception which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Even though it is a long journey for us we hope to be able to visit again.

A group of 15 MG cars arrived and were greeted with very pleasant staff at the hotel, our room had a view over the fields to Exeter. We ate in small groups and enjoyed a very nice dinner In the morning we had an excellent breakfast, one of the best English breakfasts I have ever had.

I had a bad feeling after I parked my car and approached the hotel, because the outside simply a bit dated. The room we were allocated, however, was renovated and comfortable to use considering the tariff we had to pay. As the hotel is in the middle of Devon countryside , it is very comfortably quite - in other words,... More

We celebrated our sons graduation at the Lord Haldon in July, we had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent, great quality and value for money. The staff were very helpful, especially Ruth the manager, she went out of her way to ensure the evening was a success. This hotel is off the beaten track but it is well worth... More

Staying at the Lord Haldon was a last minute thing, our having had to change plans at a few days' notice. What a great choice. The hotel is set in lovely Devon surroundings with pleasant and well kept gardens about 5 miles from Exeter. Watch out for the very narrow lanes getting there but the effort is worthwhile. Very friendly/helpful... More
