We booked in advance and upon arrival was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the hotel however had difficulty finding the reception and was not told that there was a car park nearer to our rooms therefore had to carry our bags through the sprawling walkways. Although saying this you soon find your way about and there is so much... More

This was a weekend away with good friends. The men said the golf was very good and the courses were lovely (they are fairly acomplished golfers) so that is a positive from them. Sadly us ladies found very little to be so thankful for. The food was poorly presented - anaemic sausages, scrambled egg with not a hint of yellow... More

Yet another wonderful break!! Yes the rooms are tired looking but with soooo much going on during the daytime/evening, home much time do you spend in your rooms anyway? Facilities are wonderful, the food is excellent and substantial. The only downfall this year for us was the waiter/waitress service in the dining room we had young people that couldn't speak...

Went with my mum and dad (both in sixties) and all of us found something fun and enjoyable to do! Our days were packed with all sorts of activities you would normally not have a chance to do, especially for the cheap price of the holiday! Archery,tennis, badminton, all manor of crafts etc the list is endless but perhaps the... More

We stayed for the weekend as part of a conference. As someone else said, it's an odd layout.... Huge and sprawling and very very dated. The room was large and clean but very tired.... 1980's decor. The craft workshops were fabulous and I had a very enjoyable morning making all sorts of things... This made up for the rest of... More

Reception is hard to find and the layout is just odd. The rooms are shaby looking but clean and comfy. The craft centre is great. The craft staff are wonderful but they need more of them. The food is great. The restaurant staff are a mixed bag. The place is plastered with notices of the hundreds of rules. You couldn't... More

This hotel has so many activities you can join in as a group which adds to the enjoyment .The food quality and the choice is fantastic for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drinks are very reasonably priced,there is even free wine on some evenings !! The... More

Having visited Manor House on 5 occasions, in large groups of 20+, I can see a deterioration in the craft centre. In the early days, all crafts were held at Manor House, but are now shared with the Ashbury. This has resulted in splitting the staff between the two sites, not doubling the staff. There are several glass display cabinets... More

We didn't know what to expect from our holiday as the price for 4 days seemed so reasonable but we needn't have worried as we considered we got more than our monies worth. A little bit confusing when we first arrived trying to find our room and then where and how to sign up for all the activities (we are... More

This was our second trip to the hotel. The new "mini golf" was excellent. There is something for everyone. Between the two of us we did archery, indoor bowls, rifle shooting, pottery painting, bowls coaching for beginners, a guided walk on Dartmoor, creative embroidery, snooker, golf , mini -golf , all included in the holiday price. The food is excellent,... More
