We booked for 3 nights at the beginning of July, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in room 21, on the top floor at the front of the hotel. The room was lovely, looking out over the fields and hedges, with all the comforts you need including fresh fruit in the room and high quality toiletries in the bathroom... More

Stayed overnight - this is a more a guest house than a hotel, although saying that the rooms are better than most hotels and the and the personal service and the quality of food is better than any hotel any day of the week. Just lacking in a 24 hour reception area as I arrived late and had to call... More

We only stayed one night (in the gorgeous master bedroom) and were very impressed with all aspects of the hotel. As said the room was beautiful, with loads of little touches often found lacking in other hotels. The food was delicious and well presented. The service was attentive without being intrusive or fawning. The atmosphere was very laid back and... More

Firstly, the basics: the bed and breakfast is well decorated and rooms pleasant. The owner / chef is a very competent cook and clearly cares about the food that is prepared and the wine list is well chosen. The menu and wine list, is not the most innovative but a very good standard. The service and hosting was polite and... More

Trip Advisor is an ideal platform from which to express opinions and we all surely welcome the ability to do so. Here at Plantation House we accept both praise and critisism with equal grace. Therefore, we intend to resist all temptation to express our sentiments that the above report is misguiding, if for no other reason than the factual inaccuracies.... More

I can understand why this excellent establishment has so many positive reviews. Lovely room (22) with lots of extras and plenty of thought. Lovely furnishings and décor throughout. Very attentive host who provided an excellent dinner for us. Breakfast was also excellent. My only issue would be the cost which is certainly at the high end.

This is a little gem, we just keep coming back. The rooms are tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable with everything you might need from a bowl of fresh fruit and a welcoming tea tray with fresh milk, biscuits and cake. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. We would highly recommend the evening meal. The chef is clearly passionate... More

We visited Devon this weekend to visit relatives, and booked into the Plantation House Hotel for the one night. On arrival we were welcomed by 2 hens in the car park, then by the owner in reception. We were shown to our room, and then were brought fresh milk and a slice each of home-made fruit cake, which was gorgeous!... More

We visited Plantation House Hotel, as non residents, for Valentine's dinner and what an outstanding evening we had. I'd had communication with Julie before we arrived so that the staff were aware I was gluten free; they weren't fazed by this at all. We arrived to cocktails and nibbles and then meandered through 6 courses of locally sourced, perfectly cooked... More
