The Old Rectory Hotel was the first stop in our tour of the South-West, and it set the highest standard by which all the other hotels were compared. A beautifully quiet lovely location with friendly hosts made it a memorable stay for all the right reasons.

3 days spent in a perfect retreat for a relaxing break in the beautiful surrounds of Exmoor. The Old Rectory is a wonderful and homely place with the perfect hosts, Sam and Hugh. The cuisine is truly fantastic! We will definitely be returning for another short break, hopefully in the near future.

Excellent food, excellent service, and very friendly. The room was very nice indeed, the location is ideal for a few days peace and quiet. Food - brilliantly done. Breakfast was good, and my only negative point was the fresh grapefruit. It was excellent, but the only fruit choice. (Why do hotels in the UK always have grapefruit, whilst the rest... More

If you're thinking of staying at The Old Rectory, stop thinking and just go. There is no way you can be disappointed with the excellent food, wine and outstanding service, with plenty of local interest to fill your time.

Thank you all for a great time, everything was just as good as ever. Will return sometime in the spring of next year so make sure you have a good supply of rhubarb liquor and rose wine in. Especially for my wife!

Another lovely weekend at the Old Rectory, where the hotel goes from strength to strength. The increased power of the Wifi a real plus point. I really enjoyed coffee in the gorgeous Orangery and the chance to sit out in the garden, with the gurgle of the stream for company.

A fabulous five days away. A good location for walks, steam train and cycle rides and visiting gardens The room and bathroom were spotless and the food, particularly the soup and dessert, was heavenly. Hew and Sam made us feel as though we were guests in their home.

It was a great place to celebrate our Ruby Wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly but also very professional. The food in particular was excellent, using local produce. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and on the edge of the SW coast walk for great walking.

It is truly relaxing and the decor is beautiful. We have stayed twice already this year and have booked again in October. Sam and Huw are lovely hosts. The menu changes daily and we have always been spoilt for choice.
