Have stayed at the hotel on a number of occasions over the last 15 years and have always received first class service. My most recent visit was to have lunch. Despite there being a number of large groups the staff were fantastic, welcoming, always attentive and extremely helpful. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. The setting is beautiful, particularly... More

I recently visited the golf club and I have to say everyone that I met where extremely friendly and nothing was to much trouble. I had a very enjoyable lunch set in glorious surroundings. I can't wait to go back and make further use of the facilities that they have to offer.

My first ever spa day. Put me off for life. Screaming kids in the pool no where to lie and relax as the kids had taken over. When we did get to sit down we had pervy work men walking past every 2 minutes. Went it the changing rooms to get away, man in there too working. Did not feel... More

Basic, boring menu. Small portions of badly cooked food at inflated prices. Captive audience so disappointing. We went out to eat for other meals. Breakfast ok though with good selection available and good service. Positives. Lovely peaceful and restful surroundings with helpful staff too. Mary Ross. Easter week 2015.

I received a spa voucher for my birthday, which included use of all the spa facilities, a mud treatment and a two course meal for two.The hotel is in a stunning area, within easy reach of Dartmouth. I found the swimming pool to be small and the spa reception area appeared to be quite untidy, the changing rooms were under... More

Dear sonnyboy014 many thanks indeed for posting your review of your recent visit. I am sorry to learn you did not feel you received value for money following your Rasul Mud experience, it has proved to be exceptional popular, as you say this is not a therapist treatment but one where you apply the exfoliating minerals to your selves. i...

Dear Neeks36 Good to see you back ! Thank you for taking the time to tell others of your spa day following your recent visit, as you say the new changing facilities despite only being year old were simple not big enough to meet the demands of the business. Following further investment we and a few little snags we too... More

The DGCC is tucked away in a valley, right off the main road, so wherever your room is, it should be peaceful. You can hear the birds singing and watch the rabbits on the golf course. Everything is very clean and the Vi-Spring beds are very comfortable. The best way of describing it is a couple of notches above budget... More

Without a doubt the worst hotel experience I have ever had. When we checked in our room was not ready and was told we could use any of the hotels facilities, my son was very excited and couldn't wait to go swimming, when we arrived at the pool the spa manager would not let us swim as apparently spa guest...
