Lovely idyllic spot, nice bar area (where I sat and worked on emails because the young man on reception helpfully told me that wifi was too good in the rooms) excellent restaurant with varied menu and unique styled bedroom - I was in one called The Stables in the outbuildings. Electric Shower did not work but these things happen and... More

Have recently returned from Lakeview Manor near Honiton and again we had a lovely time. Thanks to all the staff from booking through to checkout for their friendly and efficient service. Although Honiton is a fair way from where we live we have chosen to visit for a 2 or 3 day stay for the last three years and my... More

Tried many times to get this hotel but it is always booked up with weddings. This time we were lucky they had one room available so we jumped at the chance. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, we had room no 5, very small with a shared bathroom. Fortunately there was no one in no 6 so we had the bathroom... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your room. Normally we use room 5 and 6 as a family suite and only occasionally use room 5 as a double when we have no other double rooms available, the adjoining room is always closed off when this is the case so that you are guaranteed privacy. If you would like to... More

A beautiful location, surrounded by landscaped gardens and lakes. We were in room 24, based in a block of bedrooms 50 yards from the main hotel. We woke up to bird song and a lovely view to the woods and lake, The room was extremely clean, it felt cabin like, very cosy. The cooked breakfasts were amazing, cooked to order... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at this hotel, the room was clean modern and warm, the food was excellent and the staff were very nice. This one is situated in the valley and is away from all the noise etc. We had a lovely dawn walk around the lakes before breakfast. We will be going back again!!

As has been said before, this is more like a pub with rooms than a hotel. However, the beautiful and well kept grounds are far superior to most hotels we have stayed at. The sweeping drive and lake with ducks is the perfect setting for a wedding venue, of which they have many! The hotel is off the beaten track,... More

Our grounds are very special to us so we are glad that you enjoyed them. Room 7 is our bridal suite which is a treat so we are pleased that this was available for you to use. Your comments about the cold side to breakfast have been noted and thank you for the good comments on the hot options! More

We went here in Summer for a wedding. It was very hard to find, there was a road closure and no other way than the wrong way down a very narrow one way lane/track. Bit of a nightmare, not their fault of course. We arrived and attended the wedding ceremony which was beautiful in the conservatory. However, the rain shower... More

Thank you for your review of Lakeview Manor. I am glad that you appreciated the hotel for its grounds, food and good service. Sadly, I cannot do anything about the rain! We feel that bar prices are reasonable for a hotel, the lagers and local beers range from £3.30 - £3.50, average for the area. With regards to your accommodation,... More
