Words can't describe it adequately, but this is a peerless country house gem. A beautiful hotel in lovely grounds surrounded by wild Dartmoor. Fantastic food and warm, friendly service. (You of course expect good service in a landmark hotel like Gidleigh, but the welcome we had - class without pomposity, attentiveness without intrusion and simply the passion and enthusiasm of...

We stayed at Gidleigh Park with friends just for one night, largely to try out the restaurant. However, we loved this hotel, it's definitely a place to spend a few days! The road in from Chagford is long and narrow. Thankfully we only had to reverse once back to a passing place. When you approach the hotel it looks lovely,... More

The most important thing to say from the start is that we had a lovely time and will certainly be going back. So the minor criticisms that follow are just that, minor. The location is wonderful, great views, lovely grounds and a nice old building. The rooms are reasonably well appointed, we had a balcony over looking the river at... More

From the minute we parked our car, had our luggage whisked away and were shown around the hotel and to our room, we felt relaxed and pampered. The hotel is wonderful, beautiful setting, excellent service and overall welcoming. We stayed as part of the wine lovers package which consisted of a la carte menu with wine flight on our first...

No silly combinations- lovely portion sizes and fantastic. Organised a driver for us on saturday as couldnt cope with the stress of dealing with the lane ina news... More

We booked the room with the rooftop hot tub, but as it was broken we were upgraded to the Master Suite - absolutely beautiful. We loved the pantry - on tap tea and biscuits! The food was wonderful - preferred the taster menu to the a la carte. Will definitely be back!

After all the excellent reviews for Gidleigh Park, another will not surprise. The service, attention to detail and general atmosphere here are hard to beat. The food at our two evening meals was excellent. Breakfast was not quite to the same standard (the Eggs Benedict seemed a somewhat mean portion with sparce Hollandaise sauce) but that is being picky. The... More

Having read previous reviews, we had high expectations. Gidleigh Park More than lived up to it's reputation. The view from our room looked over the lawns and river. All the facilities were tasteful and faultless. Every member of staff made you feel that nothing was too much trouble. For example, we went on the woodland walk and on returning to... More

Having driven down a typically narrow and alluring Dartmoor road, approximately two miles out of Chagford, my husband and I arrived at the exquisitely beautiful Tudor style country house. We parked our car, walked a very short distance to the reception area and it was at this moment that we knew we would be treated to a very relaxing stay.... More
