we stayed at the White Hart for a wedding and had a lovely time. We were initially disappointed because they have no disabled facilities at all and we were accommodated in the overflow "Mews" a few yards around the corner. It quickly became clear however that their options to provide disabled facilities were very limited due to the historic nature... More

Check in was perfunctory rather than welcoming. For the first hour we were in the public rooms, we saw four staff and all were glum and there was obvious tension. Clearly, it was "a bad day at the office" but in the hospitality industry you cannot afford to show it. Later, the mood lightened and we received good and smiling... More

Karen and her amazing team really did us proud and made our wedding day just perfect. From their efficient and reasuring pre planning right through to the immaculate running of the day and evening itself, we were thoroughly spoiled and our guests received excellent service.

We stayed at The White Hart for a night to break up our journey to Cornwall and it was a perfect choice. The hotel occupies a spot right in the centre of Moretonhampstead so it's easy to find and you can park outside to unload before parking (which is close by and cheap). Our room was very comfortable, decorated to... More

Lovely hotel, we only visited for Sunday lunch, and so glad we did. Food was excellent, all four of us had the roast lamb, and was probably best roast dinner I have had in a long long time, faultless.service was brilliant , very attentive, well done, so nice to be served by English speaking waitresses.

What a wonderful place. We booked this Hotel for a wedding in Lustleigh on recommendation from the brides family. We where welcomed in by a lovely lady with blonde curly hair (sorry didn't get your name) but made a special effort with the kids and commented on our child's toy 'buzz lightyear!'.

A really good hotel with brilliant staff and service. Nothing was too much trouble and we received a warm and friendly welcome. There is no car parking on site but there is a public park less than 100 yards away, the cost of which is peanuts. We stayed in Room 10, which had a super king size bed which must... More

We paid £100 to stay in room 3 for one night. I understand that this is a standard room which would normally cost £110. Either way it does not, in my opinion, represent value for money and is certainly not "quaint". The room is done out in dark red pub style carpet and upholstery circa 1965, including the large upholstered... More

A free house, we stock a range of local real ales and have a hand-picked wine list.Dogs and Dartmoor go together.
