The hotel is on the outskirts of Ashburton, with nice views of the countryside. It's been extended quite a bit, and the overall impression is that this has been done piecemeal, not with any co-ordination. Our reservation email said we had a room on the ground floor, but it turned out to be on the first floor; not a problem,... More

Hair dryer and nice illuminated mirror. Soft towels. Lovely view over the beautiful gardens and moors beyond. A BBQ on the Sunday evening on the terrace....well cooked. Breakfast ...plenty of choice... More

To be honest there are not many pro's for this hotel. It feels to me that it had it's day in the 80's and now needs a lot of help. The place is just depressing. There was a water stain on the ceiling. The carpet was coming off the stairs so you have to walk on it sideways to get... More

The owners made us (the two of us and our border collie!)so welcome. Although they major on weddings at weekends and so have considerable space and facilities, they manage to maintain a warm and cosy atmosphere for guests through the week. Good quality food prepared skilfully meant we didn't consider going out to eat. Dinners and breakfasts were excellent. The... More

My wife and I recently had a two day break staying at the Lavender Hotel in Ashburton. We really enjoyed ourselves and praise must be attributed to the Owner , his wife and his son who is the Hotel's Chef. We had a very pleasant room and the hosts were really kind and helpful . I cannot continue without mentioning... More

The most incredible hospitality I have every experienced. We have been going to the lavender house for a few years now and every year we are welcomed back like family. Nothing is ever too much for the wonderful staff and the hotel and garden are beautiful. Looking forward to many more happy visits.

What can I say - a really lovely friendly place cosy and welcoming. The owners Keith, Carol and Andrew have done a brilliant job making their hotel into somewhere you feel like a friend not a room number. This is their home not just their business and they spend all their time lovingly taking care of it and their guests.... More
