The East Dart Hotel is a splendid old coaching Inn right in the heart of Dartmoor. We received a warm welcome and all the staff were freindly and competent. We had supper. The food was very average. There is not much you can do with scampi and chips so this was fairly standard. Just average. The vegetarian lasagne was poor.... More

We stopped here for drinks after walking on the moor. It was late afternoon but there were several people eating and a few cream teas being served all of which looked like good home cooked meals. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the Jail Ale which is a local brew was very good. Definitely worth stopping for.

We spent a night during our trip in Devon and Cornwall. Unfortunately the weatehr was orrible, but on the contrary, the hospitality and the availability we received at our arrival was absolutely fantastic. Monika and Rosy (Rosalba) hosted us very warmly. The rooms are very nice, with a fantastic wireless connection and the attention received during our dinner and breakfast... More

Hmmmm, so where to start. In fairness we stopped here a while ago and it was not great at all; to the point that we didn't even stay. We had booked a room and it wasn't great at all smelly dank carpet, shower gloomy and just old. It was a suite or family room and we sat in it whilst... More

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to respond to this review. When my husband and I looked round the hotel in order to buy it 5 years ago we knew that the bedrooms needed updating and money spent on bathrooms. We set ourselves a 5 year plan: this February (2015) all rooms have been redecorated, new mattresses on all... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding at Bovey Castle, Nothing was too much trouble for the owners when we had asked for an additional bed to be put into our room for 1 night, also when we asked if we could possible have breakfast half an hour early due to attending the wedding early that morning....

Thank you for your review, and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and especially the banter in the bar. I didn't like to surprise you with a bill on check-out but our online provider dictate that only the 1st night's stay is taken as deposit. We enjoyed meeting you all, and hope to see you again soon.

Had a 2 night stay as a last minute decision to go away. The family and staff (particularly Tyrone) were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Rooms are simple, but are clean and comfortable with everything you need for a stay. Food was hearty, with big portions and great beer. The breakfast was lovely and set you up... More

First time we have been to this hotel, so wasn't sure what to expect. From the moment we entered the bar, we were greeted warmly and made to feel welcome and at home. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food delicious. All of the staff, but especially the gentlemen on the bar were excellent and attentive to all our needs,... More

Stopped for a late lunch, 4 adults,one baby and two dogs. Sat outside as weather was fair. Lunch was most enjoyable and service pleasant and friendly. The food was good and hot dishes were hot. Posturing is a pleasant place and the hotel seems to fit in very well. Plan to stay sometime in the autumn

I traveled here in July while visiting Dartmoor with my 14 year old son. I just wish we had been able to stay for an additional night as the moor is so immense and beautiful. We arrived in time for dinner which was delicious, and my son especially enjoyed meeting their beautiful sweet dog! We had a comfortable twin room... More

I stayed at the East Dart Hotel last Saturday while on a motorcycling weekend. If you like a friendly traditional inn with great food, then this is one for your list. If you want chrome and glass corporate anonymity then look elsewhere! The room was very clean, everything worked and the bed was comfortable. What more do you need? I... More
