We recently stayed here for a few days and were so well looked after by the lovely family of owners. Our room had superb views and was extremely comfortable with everything we could possibly need. The shower was very powerful (something I love) with the luxury of impossibly white enormous fluffy bath sheets to wrap yourself in afterwards! Very comfortable... More

This is a nice quiet hotel about halfway between Exeter and Plymouth. Using Park and Ride services makes it easy to visit either city, plus of course the delights of Dartmoor are nearby! Hotel is clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent, as is restaurant. Gardens are lovely, you can see why this is a wedding location.

We very recently spent a lovely 3 night break at this hotel. Nice room with a bit of a view over fields. Great to have very large bath sheets provided. Good quality sleep. Very peaceful setting. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would hope to visit again some time in the future.

Stayed here a few weeks ago for a wedding. Great location with ample parking, and delightful gardens with lots of little nooks and crannies. The food at the reception was fantastic, and a good range of drinks at the bar - my only gripe was the £1.25 charge for a dash of coke with the rum, thought this was a... More

My friend and I booked using a voucher not knowing what to expect. Family run venue. Lovely Cream tea on the terrace, Yummy English Breakfast and ideally placed to visit gorgeous Ashburton. Trip to the Willows in Torquay.

Booked this through Groupon the hotel is run by a very helpful and friendly couple. Sometimes they seem to be running around at breakfast and become a little forgetful, although this wasn't an issue for us. The breakfast was plentiful and can certainly recommend the salmon and scrambled egg. The evening meal is ok could do with some nice homely... More

This is a wonderful hotel for a short stay in Devon. Close enough for us to visit Plymouth and Torquay and Dartmouth.The room was very comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and a very large bed. With the Groupon deal we had a cream tea and breakfast each morning, and stayed for one evening meal, all of which were... More
