The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and the evening meals which... More

This is everything a family run hotel should be! A nice relaxed, trusting atmosphere with friendly staff. Good beer, decent food, but most of all a really friendly relaxed atmosphere. This place has a lot of character.

We had the family room to the front opposite the river which is a really lovely room with spacious bathroom and which is very well appointed. My mum and dad had a room at the back overlooking the immaculate gardens which also benefits from... More

We have visited the Stag Hunters Hotel on and off for the last 12+ years. We are dog owners with a dog that loves to run in the countryside and spend as much of his walk in the water that he can. If your dog has similar needs, this is the place for you. The hotel is family run and... More

After a good two hour walk along the DOONE Valley,head towards Brendon and you will come across The Staghunters. A great venue for a well earned drink. Cannot comment on the cuisine but the dining room looked full for Sunday Roast.

A trip to this part of the world is always a pleasure. Coupled with staying at the Stag Hunters Inn it's pretty much perfect. This visit was for two nights and the experience was up to it's normal high standards. Food and service excellent. Only downside is that it was for only two days but I will be back.
