This hotel not only says it provides quality room, food and service it also delivers and some. I could not find a spec of dust anywhere and trust me, I tried! Although it's tricky to get to through the narrow lanes, the trip is worth the stress! Michael Caines food was, as always divine, but don't come here to eat... More

Just returned from our 3rd trip to this fabulous hotel. Once again, no drop in standards; if anything it's even better. Everything - accommodation, staff, location, cleanliness and, of course, the food - absolutely faultless. If you have never been and are wondering if you should treat yourselves, don't hesitate any longer, just book..it's very unlikely you'll be disappointed!

Lots of hotels boast of how they pay attention to every little detail and that nothing is too much trouble -- not many truly live it up to it. But at Gidleigh it's almost as if they're reading your mind The first hint comes as you wend your through some unpromising country lanes and just at the point where you... More

Visited for a couple of nights in June to celebrate a birthday. Not the type of place we visit on a regular basis. Guests seemed to equally mixed between those like us celebrating a special occasion and others who were more regulars. Staff were very good from booking right through to our stay and departure.

.....I think we died and went to it. After two days I did not want to leave and asked for another night -they thought they could find some room in the kennels!! LOL!!

Booked the two day wine lovers package to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We had no problem negotiating the narrow track to the hotel and even travelled it the next day to spend a lovely day on Dartmoor. From arrival to departure everything was perfect. On arrival, staff were present to open the car doors and take the luggage into the... More

We were very impressed with the Gidleigh Park Hotel. We spent an afternoon and one night at the hotel. The service was attentive and the rooms well proportioned and tastefully furnished. There are no coffee making facilities in the room but you can go and make your own in the pantry and collect some homemade biscuits at the same time.... More

We have greatly enjoyed many excellent lunches at Gidleigh but this was our first experience of Afternoon Tea. We wanted guests from Australia to experience a 'quintessentially English' tea but we found the experience of being served all courses at once, rather overwhelming and very 'beige'. I much prefer tea to be a dainty , highly civilised meal , with... More

We stayed two nights in late July and enjoyed excellent weather. We were able to walk the gardens and grounds and have a day walking on nearby Dartmoor, accessed on foot from the hotel. This was our second visit and the welcome, the service, the room and the food were all as wonderful as we'd previously experienced. This is a... More
