This small and friendly hotel overlooks the Torridge river and is in a really tranquil spot. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, each room is named which adds to the sense of local history and character. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to order so it was always fresh and hot. The level of service in both the hotel... More

My mother, daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Year whilst visiting family in Northam. The place is delightful, beautifully kept and managed with such grace by the owners, that we immediately felt at home there. We have recently lost our Father so we needed a place that would give us... More

Stayed for 2 nights over the New Year whilst visiting family in Bideford. First impressions always count and our first impression was not wrong: This is a wonderful little gem of a property in a beautiful setting. The hotel is undergo relatively new ownership and is undergoing a scheme of renovation and redecoration. What has been achieved already makes this... More

Yeolden house hotel was our last stay in our nine day visit of Devon and Cornwell. Planning the trip and selecting the accommodation from the other side of the world was a bit of a gamble. However in this case the gamble paid off. We loved our two day stay at Yeolden House Hotel as well as the surrounding countryside.... More

We spent a long weekend at Yeolden House Hotel and found it rather expensive given the lack of facilities. Our room was very small and I found the bed rather firm. On the plus side the room was snug and warm and had wonderful views of the River Torridge. The whole room was let down by the bathroom. The grout... More

Recently visited to celebrate 25th wedding anniversary. Was greeted with complimentary champagne and was made to feel so special throughout our stay by Ilona. Breakfast was outstanding and can't wait to visit again. We stayed in the Hubbastone room which is split level and has balcony overlooking estuary and superb gardens.

Welcoming hostess, tasty cooked breakfast (not too much, which can be off putting), sumptuously comfortable bed with fantastic linen. Only downside was poor water pressure for the shower in our enquire. Oh and a wonderful view from our balcony.

Beautiful building in a beautiful setting with great views across the river. Lovely, friendly, helpful hosts. Great breakfast. However, our bathroom was a bit dated and the shower had low water pressure (Lundy bedroom)

We stayed at Yeolden House for the first 4 nights of our holiday (from 7th September) and liked it so much that we returned for a further 2 nights at the end of our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Ilono and John - from the very friendly reception when we booked to the farewells as we left. A... More
