My husband and I first stumbled on Combe House 20-25 years ago on a dark & rainy night. What a fabulous place -- delicious food, beautiful decor, great service, wonderful location, warm ambiance: all perfect. It is elegant but homey, terrific service & food, beautiful gardens & surroundings. I can think of nothing to improve it. We recently went to... More

Combe House has a spectacular setting that you can't fail to be impressed with as you approach this superb house, up a long and winding driveway. When we arrived we were met by the manager Mark, who is great as is his whole team. The service is excellent, nothing being too much trouble and delivered with what appears to be... More

This is our favourite hotel - for everything. It is like staying at a country house as a friend of the family, without having to put up with the relations. We have only ever stayed in either the Linen Room or the Cottage but both are my favourite hotel roooms anywhere - the cottage is wondeful value. The staff are... More

Set in lovely countryside with attractive views especially from the front of the hotel. On arrival three people came out to help with the luggage! And from then on we were looked after exceptionally well. Lovely bedroom at the front of the house with lovely views. Good food in a comfortable and intimate restaurant. Lovely grounds. An excellent experience. Fairly... More

We've just come back from a fabulous time at Combe House, which is an old manor house set in the most fantastic of settings as you drive pass the pheasants and stallions up to the house at the top of the valley. Exeter is only a 20min drive away so this is convenient if you were visiting the city. Having... More

We are lucky enough to live 25 minutes away and have had had several meals at Combe House and have stayed a couple of times. We had lunch on my wife's birthday in late September and, as ever, it was excellent. The food, service and atmosphere are perfect. I particularly like the elegant but not over large dining rooms and... More

We arrived late, got lost in dark but directed in by phone and greeted warmly on the drive by Mary and two other staff who took us to our upgraded room with teas and coffee an a tray. Room was lovely (Johnson) and the rest of the building was historic, and not over modernised. We even got a guide tour... More

We found this great old Manor searching for a place to stay at night. Driving up a narrow road I was already very excited. The view from the house down the valley is fantastic. We came in late, but they still had 2 rooms for us, and we got them for the price of one. Also, even if the kitchen... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights with bed, breakfast & dinner in Willington room. Although the food was good, 3 dinners was quite long enough for an unchanging menu. The main defects for a high priced 'Master' room were pokey bathroom, tatty carpet, draughty windows, and - above all in this day and age - no internet access in... More

This Elizabethan country house is hidden deep in the Devon countryside and at last we can say that we have found a hotel in that area that we shall return to many times. From a long narrow lane to an equally long narrow driveway we were surprised to view such a lovely setting. This house is perched on a hillside... More
