The pictures of this hotel looked great online, however we drove past it twice without realising it was the same hotel! Photos gave the impression of it being quite rural and quaint however its located on the main road and the restaurant/bar is very much a pub in the evening attracting groups of younger drinkers. The bathroom smelt damp and... More

Wefollowing stayed in Room 3. During the night (1.30am) we discovered a leak - water running through the ceiling from the flat above. There were no staff on site to tell and no response when we knocked on the flat door so we had to listen to constant dripping all night. The staff were apologetic the following day but I... More

We stayed in the family room during August for 3 nights whilst visiting a relative who lives in the area. The staff who initially attended to us on arrival wasn't sure which room had been reserved for us until my husband advised her! No official welcome or guidance to facilities (husband asked later himself). Family room had a stale smell,... More

We stopped off here on the way back to East Devon. Table for 3 at around 5pm on a bank holiday weekend (Saturday). The pub/restaurant was rather empty, no more that dozen people from what we could see. No staff at the bar to order food until a 'manager' seen we were waiting and no bar staff were on hand... More

Called in for a quick lunch and it was nice without being spectacular. It fitted the bill for what we wanted. The service was quick and friendly and the food was hot and enjoyable. Doom Bar was served and was a very nice pint. Did not have the carvery but there was one available. Would use if in the area... More

Two of the price of one!! Can't go wrong with this deal. Food was lovely, hot and very nice. Staff are friendly and helpful. What more need for a pub lunch. Worth a visit after a walk on the devon moors.

We stayed at the Riverside for a wedding this July. The staff were friendly, food was good, even our teenage daughter enjoyed it - probably because the bar staff were easy on the eye and nice to her! We were there also for Bovey Carnival night and there was a band, a good one, in the Riverside carpark. We were... More
