A small and very friendly hotel that provides a first class service. The food was excellent and the accommodation was extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend the Old Rectory Hotel and will certainly be returning sometime soon.

Simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Amazing food, really engaged owners who are both amusing and clearly dedicated to making sure their guests enjoy the place as much as they (clearly) do. Seriously good and very well-priced wine list and huge, restful and beautifully maintained gardens. If you are looking for a place to forget that life... More

We had a wonderful first stay here. We were made to feel very welcome. It was a relaxing place to spend time in and there are beautiful walks all along the coastal path nearby. The food was superb and wine list interesting and fairly priced.

Really difficult to add anything to the reviews already posted. First class and we will return even if we are living fairly close by - great for a quiet night away or for an extended holiday whilst touring around the fascist Devon coastline.

Our second visit to the Old Rectory. We're happy to report that the high standards are still very evident. Our room was spacious clean and well equipped. The staff were again extremely efficient and friendly. This is the only place to stay when visiting North Devon.

I am simply sorry that I could not give this any higher score than 5. It knocks spots off most other places that have a 5 rating. The owners Huw and Sam are good fun and went out their way to make thing right. Huw is the main chef and boy can he cook. My wife and I finished our... More

Even the poor weather failed to spoil our most recent visit to this very special hotel. Attention to detail, the warm welcome and delicious food keep us coming back again and again. Huw & Sam have a great team all determined to ensure their guests' comfort and enjoyment - full marks all round.
