This visit was an amazing 70th birthday gift from our son and grandkids, so, good enough in itself! and it was so worth waiting that long for!! From the moment we stopped the car at reception to the time we left the staff and service were beyond excellent. The setting is stunning and the building is magical, beautiful gardens, walks...

This has become our favourite place for a treat - lovely location, beautiful setting & gardens, superb rooms & welcoming staff. But we really go for Michael Caines; food! Yes its a 2 start Michelin but it really is worth it - unlike some such awarded places. Highly recommended - its expensive but memorable. Stay over & enjoy the gardens... More

A wonderful location, beautiful food and great attentive service with a personal touch! We went for the birthday of my mother in law and were not at all dissapointed. After a gin and tonic in the lounge we moved to the dining room for a beautifully crafted lunch. Wonderful experience, we will be coming back!!!

We stayed at Gidleigh over Christmas. It was absolutely perfect. We were welcomed by friendly, attentive staff who continued to spoil us rotten over the following four days. The house is exquisitely decorated, all very sumptuous but comfortable and inviting at the same time. The food was out of this world! We have a few dietary requirements and these were... More

This was such a wonderful hotel. Beautiful grounds. We stayed here with extended family and it was idyllic. Food was beyond delicious. Everything was perfect. Pay careful attention to the route the hotel gives you, alternate routes are close to impassable to those unfamiliar with the narrow walled roads of the area.

This stay was booked as an anniversary surprise and did not fail to live up to it's reputation. The staff were attentive and our room was comfortable and cosy. Little touches like the decanter of madeira wine in the room, complimentary glass of fizz before dinner and heated kennel for the dog all made the experience feel even more special.... More

This truly delightful hotel is a very special place by any standards. We had a wonderful stay. We were extremely well looked after and had the most delicious dinner, excellent wine and a lovely breakfast the following morning.Our room was most comfortable (we were upgraded to a deluxe room on arrival) and overlooked the gardens. The house was beautifully decorated... More

I stayed in Gidleigh back in February and I still have not been anywhere that matches up to the service and quality they provide. It was incredible, the food was stunning, the location beautiful and the hotel itself was so charming, cosy and traditional. Absolutely loved it and again the service definitely made the stay.

This was my second visit to Gidleigh Park, but the first time I'd stayed the night in their rooms. (Previously been for lunch with friends). I came with my wife for a pre Christmas escape and within this package was dinner from the a la carte menu, bed and breakfast, although we chose to pay a small supplement to have... More
