Breakfast was very good with a waiter to take your order rather than have to visit a buffet. Room was clean and quiet and a reasonable price, my son stayed in room next door which was also well appointed and very quiet. If you want to stay somewhere with no traffic noise this is the place for you. Staff friendly... More

We stayed here for one night. It was quiet and peaceful. The room was good and clean. We are here and the food was bog standard. I would recommend it. There's countryside all around. Nothing else to see, but it's pretty close to Dartmoor and Dawlish Warren (30 drive). Tip: drive via Ide, otherwise the other route to the hotel... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting our son at the University. What a good find, at a reasonable cost, we had room 26 which overlooked the surrounding countryside. The room was clean and warm with ample of hot water to have a good hot soak. One of the waiters was very informative about the building and we had... More

We booked DB&B for one night (Friday) and reserved a table in the restaurant, assuming the hotel to be busy. It's too true that SatNav routes you down a couple of miles of the narrowest of lanes. But don't let that put you off. The final lane brings you to a large car park at the front of the (once)... More

We booked for 3 nights, friday, saturday and sunday. When we arrived we were told that on saturday they were having a wedding, but as we were not part of the wedding group they had put us in a room far away from any possible noise from the reception. We really appreciated this and we heard nothing whilst the reception... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Lord Haldon recently having last visited some 4 years ago. Unfortunately, during the early evening I fell ill and was in a lot of pain. I spoke with the duty manager who could not do enough for me. Offering to take me to hospital if needs be was the highlight. Cannot thank... More

Lovely hotel, polite and helpful staff and wonderful food! All in all a lovely short break. If arriving by car ring the hotel for directions...our satnav took us for miles down a single track road which could have been avoided. It was quite a hair raising experience - luckily we didn't meet a vehicle coming the other way; reversing for... More

The hotel was welcoming and convenient for Exeter and the surrounding area and is very quiet and peaceful. Reasonably sized room (28) with bath and shower. Food was fine, if a bit overpriced for what it is but breakfast was very good, and staff very helpful and polite. A bit rough round the edges in places - minor things like... More
