Very pleasant place to stay, warm and welcoming. Friendly and efficient owners and staff. Very large and comfortable bed - room 3 - and nice en-suite. Comfortable bar and dining areas and a really first class breakfast.

it was our first time away with our dog, who is a black german shepherd, we were made to feel very welcome, and it is a very dog friendly inn. The family that run the inn are very warm and friendly and put their self's out to be hospitable. The evening meal and breakfast were both excellent and reasonably priced.... More

Lovely quiet location but well placed for exploring.The Inn has a welcoming feel to it. A visit to Lynmouth and Linton a must. Comfortable room woken by bird song every morning, bliss.Disappointed with the lack of hanging space in the room but everything else was great, very clean. Service was very friendly and helpful. A very dog friendly hotel would... More

We had a fabulous stay here. We were a group of ten on a family reunion. Jan and Nick could not have been more hospitable and accommodating. The hotel is charming and they have clearly spent much time and effort decorating and furnishing the public areas to maintain its historic feel. Food and beverage were excellent and the rooms extremely... More

The hosts were very friendly & helpful. When we explained that we needed to leave earlier than the breakfasts were to be served & asked if it would be possible to have sandwiches made up instead, they prepared full breakfasts for us an hour earlier than advertised.. Good meals, friendly service. An ideal stopover while walking the Two Moors Way,... More

We turned up in the middle of the afternoon and needed a room just for one night. Although the hosts did not have any dog-friendly rooms available they were more than happy to prepare one for us and our clean canine companion. Once settled we took our dog for a walk and found a footpath right opposite the hotel that... More

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Lunchtime and evening meals are taken in the bar/restaurant area. The food is very good quality with a good selection, including a choice of vegetarian dishes. We chose this hotel due to its location. You do not need to drive anywhere to start a long walk. We stayed there for 6 nights and... More

A welcoming family business, comfortable and unpretentious, with glorious walks from the doorstep and a hearty meal to return to. the bed was comfortable, if too large for us, and room attractively furnished, light and airy. We enjoyed the bath products, Miles teabags with Earl Grey as well as Green tea and the peace of countryside.

We arrived quite late in the evening, but were accommodated with dinner even though the restaurant had stopped serving. Bed was comfy and breakfast was lovely. Very quiet in the bar out of season, though but then it is in the delightfully remote middle of nowhere!

Despite refurbishments taking place around the hotel, we were made to feel most welcome. Lunch was very good - the steak and ale pie being quite a challenge ! We needed help with a forthcoming party visit and nothing was too much trouble for the proprietor who was most helpful. We look forward to our return next month.
