We booked this lovely hotel for 2 nights for a special birthday and anniversary celebration. We choose this place specifically because of all the excellent reviews of the restaurant. I emailed the owner back in March to reserve tables for both evenings and received a confirmation inviting us to meet in the lounge beforehand for drinks and canapés. After checking... More

Stayed at this very lovely hotel Friday and Saturday night. The owners are very friendly and complimentary coffee is provided when you book in. We stayed in the Kingsley room which was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and had a balcony. Breakfast was very tasty and had a good selection. The hotel gardens are very pretty with plenty of seating... More

We stayed here one night on the way back from our holiday in Cornwall. It really is a great place to stay with lovely gardens and a nice view over the estuary. The landlady couldn't do enough to help us throughout the day. Our room was comfortable and the whole place was spotless. Dinner was superb and the reataurant was... More

I can only echo the positive reviews already written. Lovely rooms, excellent service, comfortable beds and a really good chef. John and Ilona know how to make you feel both welcome and special and have a first class team supporting them.

Had a fantastic overnight stay here. The gardens are beautiful and the hotel has a fantastic view of the estuary. The staff could not have been more helpful and the service was relaxed yet professional. We ate in the hotel - and dinner was exceptional.

Stayed here overnight, before we started several days walking along the SW Coast Path. The owners were happy for us to leave our car in the hotel car park, for picking up at the end of the holiday, which was an added bonus. Country House style of hotel. Lovely gardens with wonderful views down to the river. Quiet and secluded,... More

My husband and I spent a mid-week break here in the middle of May. The owners made us very welcome and they're upgrading this lovely old building very sympathetically. Sadly our room didn't overlook the estuary and it wasn't very big, but the bed was huge and very comfy, and the decoration recent and tasteful. Breakfast was really nice and... More

A very brief stay while attending a family wedding nearby, but it couldn't have been nicer. The hotel doesn't do lunch, but they found us some lovely platters and served them in the pretty garden overlooking the Torridge. Beds very comfy and breakfast the next morning excellent. Most friendly service.

Really nice hotel. We were offered an upgrade to s lovely room for £10 which was a beautiful room overlooking the estuary. Food was very good indeed and value for money . The owners were very friendly and tried very hard to please. Overall a lovely stay albeit one night, and thoroughly recommended. We would go back.
