We spent a lovely weekend with my in laws over Halloween in the abbey inn. We had breakfast & evening meals. The staff were so lovely & the food was yummy. The woodburner downstairs was so lovely. We had a really great time. I really look 4ward to going back.

This is a very unusual building that goes up and down rather a lot. The room I had was huge, with a big sofa. The downside was the en-suite bathroom - a cupboard really with a loo, basin and shower squeezed in. That said, it was adequate. The hotel is homely and friendly, but the service at dinner was slow.... More

Stopped just the one night on a trip down to Cornwall. We'd had a drink there earlier in the year (Mar) and really liked the atmosphere. They stock excellent beers which are well kept by an efficient landlord. The Abbey Ale was beautifully clear with a decent head. Some friends joined us for an evening meal and all our choices...

We stayed for 2 nights at the top of the Inn overlooking the river. Very beautiful view but also very noisy meaning we had to keep the window shut at night in order to sleep. Bottled water along with biscuits were provided on both days which was a lovely friendly touch. A shower was provided in the ensuite which had... More

What a gem in the crown this Inn is. Wonderful location, good beer and fabulous food, what more could anyone ask for. We stayed two days in The Abbey Inn and wanted to stay longer. Our room, 'Dart' was lovely with a great view of the river which flows past the Inn. The service was attentive and very welcoming and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, we would have stayed longer but we hadn't pre booked. All the staff were lovely and very helpful and friendly. The room we had was very clean and attractive with a very comfortable bed. Very attractive setting beside the river, great location for exploring Buckfastleigh and surrounding area.
