Stayed here for one night whilst visiting family. A really nice, old, clean pub. The room was a nice size, very clean. However, we found the bed very hard and not very comfortable, resulting in a bad nights sleep.

Had a three night birthday treat with my wife. Great stay right in the middle of the town but with easy access to The Moor. Staff were very attentive. Breakfast very good. And a music quiz on Sunday night when we came third! Overall, lovely time.

Reasonably priced, attractively furnished, excellent breakfasts, great pub meals, and even parking. Gary and Julie are running an outstanding inn, and we were delighted. We stayed in the family room, which was vast--a queen plus two sets of bunk beds (and a porta-crib in the closet). Bovey Tracey is a nice little town, and we were a few minutes drive... More

We stayed here in the family room, with our 8 and 6 years olds. It was a nice size, clean room with two bunk beds, a double bed and a very good shower. Welcome was friendly from the minute we arrived until we left. We ate a fantastic evening meal in the bar / restaurant, food was all home made... More

We received a warm welcome from the start. We ate in the bar area because we have a dog and the food was good. The room was clean and comfortable. There is a good choice of breakfast and the full engish was great.

Discovered the Cromwell Arms on a visit to Bovey Tracey. Popped in with my wife for a lunchtime snack and a drink. The place was clean, friendly and served a wide selection of real ales. Food was super and the beer was perfect. Would thoroughly recommend visiting if you plan a trip to Bovey Tracey. Will definitely return soon.

We went here on a family holiday with the grandparents for our first trip to the southe west in the UK. They gave US a nice big room with a good sized bathroom. The room was clean and quiet. They have a nice ale selection at the bar. They were helpful. The only annoying part was that there were two... More

Room OK, service and attitude appalling. They messed up the booking and fundamentally believed this was the error of the guest. Although this not the case customer service would not involve accusing guests for errors whoever is to blame. Repeated critic of guests due to this error, not able to provide receipt for payment (“we cannot afford an expensive hotel... More

Well what can we say about the Cromwell arms. If trip advisor did 10 out of 10 then this place would get 11. Just got back from a Friday and Saturday stay with four young children and the place was fantastic. Got there Friday about six and was welcomed to our family room which was away from the pub and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cromwell Arms is just a 5 minute drive off the A38, being ideally located on the edge of Dartmoor and in close proximity to the Heathfield Industrial Estate.The town of Bovey Tracey, also known as the Gateway to the Moor, offers easy access to endless countryside and attractions and is a fantastic place from which to explore the whole region, from the moors, tors and villages, to the beaches and seasides of Devon and the rest of the South West of England. With Exeter, Plymouth and Newton Abbott easily accessible from us and being only 10 miles away from the sea, our location is an ideal stop over for a business trip, a weekend break or for longer staying guests holidaying in Devon.The 17th century oak beamed coaching inn is a family run establishment in the heart of the town and offers 12 tastefully, newly decorated and comfortable en-suite bedrooms. One of which is a family room that can sleep up to 6 people comfortably. We have FREE Wifi throughout the main building, a Beauty Therapy Suite if you fancy being pampered, a lawned beer garden with a pagoda and decking for those warm sunny days and two log fires to warm you on those cosy winter nights. We even have some chickens to say hello to! So, whether you are on holiday, on business or just passing through, a visit here is highly recommended. Dogs are welcome to stay too. ... more   less
