Firstly, I stayed on an inclusive HF walking short break. I am a member, so know what to expect, like early breakfast, set dinner time & shared tables - if any of these bother you, look elsewhere. Our bedroom was simple, but practical, with pine chests, a big wardrobe, & cane chairs. Beds were comfortable (singles). We were on the... More

This is an excellent hotel, perched high up on the edge of Dartmoor, with magnificent views to the south. The gardens are also lovely. The public rooms are elegant, but relaxed and comfortable. The rooms are a good size, with plenty of storage space, and firm comfortable beds. All the usual amenities are there. Food is first class, quickly and... More

An excellent Cafe, situated opposite Haytor! Absolutely lovely and brilliant service! Great food and nice to relax in the 'Agatha Christie' lounge! Also a wedding venue for those who want a Dartmoor wedding! A favourite of my parents for Sunday lunch/coffee in the week!

We booked a room here on laterooms.com and were completely unaware this is an HF House. This should be made clear as not everyone is going to be keen on the HF communal concept. Luckily we don't mind this but did mind not being able to find anyone to check us in for half an hour. It seems that as... More

They also sell rooms on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Our room was comfortable and quiet with a lovely view towards the Devon coast. Food in the restaurant was... More

I stayed at the Moorlands during my recent HF Holidays 4-night walking tour of “Haytor, Dartmoor, & the Devon Coast”. This was the perfect gateway to visit the wilds of Dartmoor National Park and just down the street to the visitor center. I had always wanted to stay here as this is where Agatha Christie penned her first crime novel,... More

Stayed here on a very reasonable B&B rate for a few nights. Had a room at the back on the top floor with views right out over the gardens to the sea at Teignmouth. Room was in good condition, I think they must have had work done to them in the last few years, certainly nothing like some of the... More

Lovely room with view over the hotel garden and countryside. Comfortable bed. Shower is small and ok except water temperature varies. Free Wifi appreciated. Breakfast and evening meals excellent. Staff friendly and very helpful. Armchairs in the room have seen better times and too low for sitting at the desk.
