I stayed here along with 11 other friends on a (hopefully sensible, we are all over 40) stag weekend. All I can say is a big thank you to Simon (the owner) and his team, from the offset we were personally greeted by Simon (I mean greeted and not warned!) and treated as normal guests, the rooms (I saw most...

Just got back from a weekend at The Edgemoor. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and our room, at the back of the hotel, was massive and very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday night and the food was excellent. I am a vegetarian and the choices were fine. Breakfast both days was excellent too. Plenty... More

We stayed at the Edgemoor hoping for a country hotel with warm welcolming fires and seating to relax in. Unfortunately this was not the case. Externally the hotel is very picturesque and promises the above. The day we arrived there was a conference going on and we found out there was only one member of staff on duty. This member... More

The hotel reminds me somewhat of Faulty Towers. The owners snd staff are charming but all over the place. The hotel itself is a delightful conversion of a school so there are some quirks. My room was fantastic, fairly newly renovated and was only lacking heating (in January) and a chair. For reasons which escape me I had only a... More

Thank you for your kind comments, though I must say the flippant clinches lack originality and should be substantiated to have validity. We do have additional heaters for use during extreme cold spells, and we also have chairs had you only asked. I do concur that our vegetarian menu can be limited, though again our chefs are always happy to... More

This is such a charming hotel oozing history. Comfy sofas in the lounge, log fires and very helpful and friendly staff makes this a great place to stay. The food served is lovely and well presented. Highly recommend the meringue dessert. Had it 2 nights in a row. Would have given it 5 out of 5 however my bathroom was... More

We stayed at The Edgemoor Hotel for my best friends 40th Birthday. From first arrival the hotel looked lovely. The staff were wonderful, I could not rate them highly enough, very accommodating. The function was well laid out and the way they set the room up bought tears to my friends eyes. The actors who preformed the murder mystery were... More

Edgemoor has a lovely atmosphere. Feels quite comfortable and homely. Had lunch there as part of a group. Had a room to ourselves and table laid nicely and service good. Food was fairly mediocre and presentation could have been a little better for the main courses. It was pleasant enough but not startling in any way.

Thank you for sharing your opinions. Your kind comments about the atmosphere, and our staff providing service are appreciated. It was therefore surprising to find your opinions stretched to our bedrooms even though you acknowledge you have never seen them. This is the first time I have ever received a review based on guessing! As you live locally I invite... More

This is a very friendly, welcoming and well run hotel in a beautiful location on the edge of Dartmoor. We stayed in the woodland wing and it was cosy, very clean and incredibly helpful if you have dogs. All rooms on the ground floor with doors onto a small patio and lawn area. Close by are loads of suitable dog... More
