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

We had a nights stay here recently. The room was clean and tidy but the shower was very lacking in power, the welcome pack does warn you about the plumbing but you really might struggle if you get muddy, or have long thick hair. The bar is homely and traditional and they have large outdoor seating areas. Breakfast was basic... More

Many thanks for your review, and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. If you remember, I pointed the shower out to you, which, not a power shower but perfectly adequate for all needs. Breakfast is served as requested, and a full plate is normally sufficient for all appetites. I compare our prices regularly, and we are comparable with all... More

Strange owners. Where sitting in the pub with their children and smelly dog watching television while guests are eating. After that they where argueing together. In the morning their twin where running around in the breakfast room. Room where we stayed was strange. From shower you step directly in the room and toilet door cannot really closed

Thank you for your review. Our website says that we are a family run business and has a picture of the children and the dog, so these should be expected by our guests to be on the premises at some point during their stay - this is their home. The children have their breakfast and leave for school before we... More

We have stayed here a couple of times before and once again had a relaxing weekend, Rosie and Paul were friendly and welcoming and the food served was of excellent quality. The young man serving us at the bar was extremely helpful and polite. We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable and newly refurbished. We look forward... More

A great place from which to immerse yourself in scenic Dartmoor. Large portions (unless you specify small) of best quality food (meat, eggs etc from neighbouring farm), helpful host, hostess and staff, near visitor centre and post office. Quiet at night; comfortable/supportive mattresses. As an artist/photographer I had a brilliant holiday and will be going back for more. PS it... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night on our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience. When we checked in we mentioned that we were on honeymoon and the owner moved our room to the honeymoon suite and no extra charge.

We stopped here for a cream tea on our way back home to Croydon. The staff were very friendly and so was the resident newfoundland Shiraz she was lovely. The scones were warm and there was loads of jam and cream.

I stayed at the East Dart Hotel mid July 2014. I picked this hotel because of the location and it was dog friendly. I stayed 3 nights and it was just right place and setting for walking on the moors. I have given 3* for the room as was functional and comfy and is what most of us want when... More

Oh dear. The hotel was so much nicer the last time we visited a few years ago and the menu far more appealing. It certainly needs a lick of paint as it looks really run down. The bar has lost its authentic rural charm and has far too many unsightly heated counters and tatty bits and pieces, including some ghastly... More

I was quite surprised reading your review, to be honest, as I'm wondering if you've got us confused with somewhere else. The bar hasn't changed probably in the last 20 years, apart from new chairs and cleaned more often! I'm sorry that you don't like the red, but that's a personal opinion and they match the decor. The tatty heated... More
