Had my wedding at Northcote Manor 3yrs ago today, which was the best experience. Returned tonight for a special Anniversary dinner, and was blown away again. Even if you're not staying as a guest, just go for the food & spectacular service. Special mention to Mitch, who was overly accommodating & hugely professional. Plus just an all round lovely chap!...

This really is a lovely place in an idyllic setting. When we first arrived we were surprised to find that there was no formal reception. However, a couple of young ladies materialised and showed us to our very nice and tastefully furnished room. This is a very informal place and we found that very appealing. It is all very relaxing...

We came back to Northcote Manor last week for a Gourmet evening, staying in a suite costing a smidgeon under £300 for the night. We could have go this cheaper via Secret Escapes but having mailed the hotel direct, were advised the only way we could guarantee the room we wanted was to book direct - so we did. On... More

Despite all of our efforts, we have still failed in each attempt to please you, including refund and an apology. We are deeply saddened that you felt let down. Please be assured of... More

I stayed at this hotel at random for 3 nights recently. It had not been recommended to me nor had I researched it, it was just the first one on the list when I decided to take a last minute break in Devon. So what I got was a pleasant surprise. The first thing you notice when you arrive is... More

Haven't yet given a 5-star rating before, so this is the first one! My wife bought a voucher for a dinner, bed and breakfast stay, as did some friends so that we could have our regular get-together. Due to the lack of ordinary rooms available for the night we wanted to stay, we upgraded to a superior room. Everything was... More

We booked this hotel for our anniversary. The hotel looked charming from the drive and did not disappoint. The staff were extremely welcoming. Our room was a little shabby and warm. There was a fan which helped, along with the window open, but this allowed the noise from the kitchens to wake us early. The taster menu was absolutely amazing... More

This was our second trip to Northcote. Welcome was warm but so was the room! Only one window would open in our upgraded room and due to the very sunny weather the room was extremely hot. We asked if a fan could be provided and was told that one would be brought to the room. After a couple of hours... More

We are delighted that you chose to return to Northcote and stay with us again. It's also great to read that you enjoyed a warm welcome and an excellent dinner and breakfast.

A birthday treat from my wife - she comes too. It took some finding deep in deepest Devon but was well worth the trouble. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The food really excellent.

We stayed at Northcote Manor for a tasting menu with wine and an overnight stay. We were treated as VIP's with exquisite food and attentive service. The hotel has intriguing wall murals depicting it's former life as a monastery but is well presented with classic styling. It has extensive grounds for walking with interesting nooks and crannies to investigate. Rooms... More
