We've been to Gidleigh many times. It's our favourite hotel in the UK. Frankly, I feel it's a bit vulgar to review this hotel, as it doesn't need my approbation. The personal care, the setting and the food are all just wonderful. Let's hope they get the 3rd Michelin star they deserve next week.

The Hotel in the Dartmoor National Park is very remote but a great place. The Hotel park is a place of heaven and you can make great hikes directly from the Hotel. The road from Chagford to the Hotel is very narrow and difficult to pass. After you get used to that, it's no problem. The standard rooms are modern... More

We have been looking to visit Gidleigh Park for some time and finally made it on 6 September with some friends who live nearby. The setting is stunning, helped by the beautiful weather we had that day. Pre-lunch drinks in the sun on the terrace followed by a fantastic lunch which lived up to all of our expectations all made... More

This is an excellent hotel. The lane is very narrow, but worth the trouble. The position and views of this place are spectacular. Excellent room, excellent food, excellent staff. Wow. Look forward to returning one day.

This should have been the highlight of our holiday but it missed the mark somehow. When you're spending over £1000 a day for bed, breakfast and dinner everything needs to be extremely good. Most of it was, but not quite enough though it is impressive. Our room was in the roof of the newest part, very spacious with a vast... More

Its a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting but why does nobody mention the road up to the hotel which is about a mile of "narrow" single track road which makes you think about this more than the hotel. Rooms were comfortable but not spacious. The staff were very friendly providing excellent service except when we left when it felt... More

Lovely two night break for my Birthday. Nestled in the heart of magnificent Devon countryside you encounter a little bit of paradise. Beautiful well tended grounds and gardens with peace and tranquility and the babbling brook to lull you to sleep. The service is excellent and nothing too much trouble. The food is wonderful and can be tailored to any... More

A start of holiday treat. Beautiful setting, although the country lane to get there is taxing, we wondered if it was one-way (it isn't). Pre lunch drinks and delicious pre starter on the terrace, sublime as this weeks weather is like summer. 3 course lunch menu delicious and when I commented my main was over seasoned for my taste, immediate...

We were lucky enough to have a one night stay a Gidleigh park for our anniversary and my wife's birthday. It was stunning in every way. The food was as good as it gets. The 8 course signature meal was a couple of hours of heaven. We decided to go for the wine flight with a different glass of wine... More

Our first time but we'd long looked forward to trying Michael Caines' cooking as we are also fans of Le Manoir and were keen to compare. The drive up was a challenge but with plenty of passing places not a problem. The location is absolutely beautiful and there was the added bonus that we could take our dog. The house... More
