Stayed at The Dartmoor Lodge for 2 nights last weekend. My partner, her border terrier and I cannot fault the friendly, attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble on an extremely wet weekend! Food was of excellent quality, freshly cooked to order for both breakfast and dinner. Rooms of excellent quality, we assumed having been recently renovated? Some of the... More

Very friendly staff who went out of their way to accommodate us. There was a themed evening for Chinese New Year but as we didn't want this they found us a table and we were able to choose off the main menu. The Chicken Kiev with curry sauce filling and sweet potato sag aloo was delicious. We stayed in a... More

One of the friendliest places I have ever stayed on business, the receptionist Lauren I think was her name was extremely helpful and a credit to the Dartmoor lodge. 4 stars down to the limited menu but they did provide for vegetarians also and the food was such a high quality. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Stopped here when returning home from a short break for a late afternoon carvery - which was excellent. The lady behind the bar was exceptional and made us feel really welcome. She served our drinks then showed us to a table before bringing a waitress to us to take our order. Cannot think of any time in the past where... More

We were very impressed by the quality and the selection avalible at the Dartmoor Lodge's Carvery. The chef serving the beautifully cooked meats was friendly and eager to please diners. The restaurant is warm and comfortable and the serving staff helpful. We look forward to a return visit very soon!

We have just come back from the motel where we had an excellent carvery Sunday lunch. The portions were very generous and the meats cooked to perfection. I normally avoid topside of beef because I am usually disappointed by being served tough rubbery beef when I order topside but this was delicious and melted in the mouth. All credit to... More

Our third New Year's visit. Better than ever. Decorations in dining rooms very good, service excellent, atmosphere great, and the food simple but very good. A carvery is served alongside a cold buffet and you can use either or both, with a magnificent cheese board available all evening. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. At midnight a wonderful... More

Had Christmas lunch today at the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel Ashburton. Absolutely fantastic. Food and service I couldn't find fault with. Atmosphere great. Christmas pud was the best I'd ever eaten. Well done.
