Thanks to Kirren and his merry team for an ideal place to entertain our business partner over here from Chile with good food, service and ambience. Thoroughly recommended. Greeted with friendly banter from the start and after a not so long wait, three smiling waitresses serving our perfect meals we ordered. Then allowed to stay on for a while undisturbed... More

We stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding at Dartington Hall and were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist and taken to our room, No. 1. While it was adequate, it was in need of a bit of TLC. The Velux window opened on to the kitchen exhaust which allowed cooking smells into the room. As someone else... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Very happy to hear the team made you feel welcome and that you enjoyed the meals. I will be getting the hot water looked at immediately. On a plus side we are in the planning stage of a refurb and extension which will be great. Many thanks... More

We spent one night here on the way down to Cornwall. We had a very good evening meal, our room (3) was adequate (the only niggle our room was opposite the kitchen fan so when we had the window open he cooking smells wafted in) also the water was really dangerously scalding hot. The breakfast was excellent with smoked salmon,... More

This is the fifth or sixth time we have stayed at the Dartbridge, and as per usual it delivers on every level. All aspects of this hotel are first rate. The food, the staff, the accommodation and finally the location are straight out of the top drawer. Already looking forward to another visit later in the year.

Stayed for one night to attend a local event. Room a little small with very creaky floors and traffic noise all night. On the plus side though, the staff were excellent, very friendly and cheerful, and the food was good. Would be happy to stay again if a back room was available.

The Dartbridge Inn used to be a safe bet for a pub lunch but,this time, we were very disappointed. Our meals took a long time to arrive and when they did come threy weren't very good. The onion gravy was really sweet and the coleslaw was inedible. Although the waitress said she was going to tell the chef we were... More

Thank you for doing a review. I apologise for your recent visit. Thursday night isn't normally half as busy as it was this time around and therefore we only normally supply for the usual demand.

Stayed at the Dartbridge the weekend of 16th/17th May for hubby's birthday treat. We stayed in room 6. It was a lovely clean and spacious room. Very peaceful and relaxing. Nice breakfast buffet and good choice of cooked food on the morning. Also dined in the restaurant on the evening. Fantastic meal. The new menu is great. All in all... More
