Easter Monday, we booked into Gidleigh for lunch. I have to say I've waited my whole life to visit, with both parents, grandparents and everyone I've ever known to have been or lived in Devon having raved about this place. As we only ate lunch, I can't comment on the rooms so my forced selection for that part in this... More

My wife and I stayed over for Valentines day and weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. We have eaten in the restaurant a few times before but never stayed over. We had a wonderful weekend, the staff were very good indeed and a high level of service. We loved the little communal kitchen area where you can get tea/coffee/water etc. What... More

I have to say it was fantastic by any standards and although expensive ,you get what you pay for.The service was excellent and all the dishes fantastic ,the only slight gripe was the coffee which tasted like muddy water ,I love good coffee and to me it finishes off a meal if it's good. However i commented on the poor... More

From the moment we arrived on a Friday evening to be welcomed by Damien Bastiat, General Manager opening our car door, we knew we were in for a brilliant weekend. The discreet service was amazing. No credit cards, no asking which room you were in, it was like being a guest in a friend's house for the weekend - albeit... More

We went to Gidleigh Park on the 1st of March 2014 for our 25th wedding anniversary, what a fabulous place. The Staff, couldn't do enough, the room was perfect with great views of the estate and the food absolutely top quality. Probably the best place we've stayed in the UK. I'm not sure what it would be like for a... More

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
