We stayed at the hotel in July 14. I was recovering from an op and wanted somewhere comfortable and family run, for a relaxing break. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel! Lovely and quiet, very friendly and helpful staff and superb food. Will definitely be back again. Super. Thank you.

We enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch in the beautiful dining restaurant at Ilsington Country House Hotel, Haytor, Dartmoor. The staff were all so helpful even taking photos for us afterwards. The meal was superb, with delicious roast beef which melted in the mouth. All the family had a brilliant day, enjoying a game of cricket on the lawns afterwards! Many... More

We visited several places in England, with this being our second stop. I chose Ilsington because of the positive reviews, and because they could accommodate the three of us (one child). I must say finding it was rather difficult, because we had no address to give Garmin. But after ambling about the countryside a bit, we got there. The grounds... More

Had heard a couple of years ago that the restaurant was good, so decided to book hotel and dinner to calibrate our anniversary.What a good decision. We booked DB&B - good value. The room (a standard) was exactly what was expected - very clean and tidy and adequate size. The dinner, which was our main concern, exceeded our expectations completely.... More

I arranged a luncheon for seventeen at an annual reunion, which was held last weekend and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We were unable to book our regular venue of the past and indeed as it turned out are grateful, for that, as The Ilsington Country House Hotel, well exceeded our past expectations.. Richard was very helpful in booking our... More

I will start off by saying that this is "a pig of a place to find" as its situated in the Dartmoor National park, down miles of narrow country lanes, but when you do eventually get there you immediately know that its all been worth it. The grounds are absolutely stunning, both to the front and rear of the property,... More

I can honestly say i was not disappointed with this hotel. The service that all the staff gave was excellent.The food was top notch. I ate in the Blue Tiger and the restaurant- compliments to the chefs for very high standards. This hotel has good leisure facilities- albeit a little tired. I liked the fact that this hotel was a...

We stayed here for four nights and found the staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful especially Sam on reception. We ate in the restaurant every night and found the food exceptional. We would like to give a special mention to Tony the waiter who was not only delightful to chat to but we felt he went out of his... More
