It is also very popular for weddings and functions etc. We had a carvery Sunday meal where the service and food were excellent. The breakfast also was great. The one downside of this hotel is...

Absolutely wonderful time, every member of staff extremely helpful, warm and friendly. Brilliant food, good rooms. I believe the owners have an ongoing mission to update and improve. So thank you to everyone for a wonderful, relaxing stay, from all the Whitford clan.

...and it filled a hole. Bar staff very polite. Clean. Customers conducting business a bit annoying. Also renovation work going on (did not mind this). Sandwich average. Bread a bit naff. Fillings okay.Would not make an effort to call in again if near.

Easy to find. Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. Clean room, nothing special. Bathroom badly in need of updating, door didn't close properly, no extractor fan, very steamed up after family of four showering. Heating quite noisy in the night. Food ok. No wifi in rooms.

Dartmoor Lodge was very easy to find, and not far from the A38. We were pleasantly suprised when we found the Lodge was in open countryside and had plenty of car parking spaces. We had to wait a little bit for reception, as they were a little busy, we were shown around the dining room and bar, then taken to... More

I had done some research on places we could stop for a meal on the way down to Plymouth that was convenient to stop at with a touring caravan in tow and this is where we chose. Very convenient. Parked on the road but now I know that there is a great big car park round the side as well.... More

We had a really nice enjoyable stay with our little son. The hotel is very nice, the staff very friendly and professional, and the food is excellent. The location is also very convenient for exploring Dartmoor and the surrounding areas. Highly recommend it!
