We booked our New Year break with friends a year ago and knew the hotel was 'Quirky'. This hotel is deffinately that. Although Richard and Sheila were friendly there was also an indifference to us as guests. The other staff were excellent and friendly. Thought it was rather overpriced and although we had been told it was black tie for... More

I've only just chanced upon this site, and am frankly amazed at some of the comments. We had no prior knowledge of Fingals when we visited, having booked on the strength of their website. There is clearly scope to be disappointed when you make a booking this way, but I have to say that our stay met all our expectations... More

It was a little extra but i thought what the hell.. It was full of character, had a reception room on the first floor full of nik naks and... More

Overpriced but quite nice. Room was good, bed was very comfortable but the bathroom very small and generally, could have been cleaner. No good toiletries as stated in brochure. 3 course dinner and not 4 as stated and food whilst the mains were good, (venison, duck) the puds were average. Didn't taste home made, they were tarts on both evenings... More

I've been staying at Fingals every year since 1984. It's the best place I know in the UK to unwind and re-charge your batteries which is why, like many others, I return again and again. The setting is idyllic, the rooms comfortable, the owners charming and personable, the staff friendly, the dogs entertaining and the other guests, with whom you... More

We really enjoyed the communal dining and met some charming and interesting people. The whole place is a bit mucky but thats part of its charm,.Whilst I was there Sheila had the hump,possibly because Richard spent far to... More

After some very helpful initial contacts and a mystery trip through some South Devon lanes, by following the directions we found Fingals without a hitch. It is hidden away in a peaceful valley some way from the nearest village. First impressions were of a property being managed on a shoe-string. It first opened 28 years ago and is still not... More

My 70th birthday lunch and stay for me and family was made memorable by the owners Richard and Sheila and the staff of the hotel. The perfect sunny day helped to make the al fresco lunch even more special. Andras Kaldor
