These kind of old English country hotels when they are done well are very hard to beat. Combe is one of those, it just has huge amounts of charm, it's beautifully decorated and the food must be close to Michelin Star. The wine list is exceptional. Lastly the staff couldn't have been nicer and you can tell they all take... More

We have eaten here often and it never fails to live up to its incredible reputation. Last time we were here we had afternoon drinks and bar snacks that turned into a grazing afternoon ending with the best desserts we have ever had. They really know how to welcome and spoil you.

Our second visit and once again we were made very welcome. Its very nice walking into the hall with the log fire burning. We were a party of about 12 and had a private room for dinner. A very good meal. However, last time we stayed we had a fabulous room with a large bathroom and this time a room... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. First time six years ago for one night. This time they had a special offer for four nights so decided to have a long weekend in Devon. This hotel is quite near Honiton but you feel in middle of nowwhere. There is a lovely windy drive up to the house through... More

Gorgeous old Elizabethan house on a hill with beautiful views. Lovely panelled room with huge log fire, comfortable lounge with log fire, dining rooms with log fires! We sat in front of the fire for hours reading. Exquisite food, comfortable rooms, excellent service, very quiet at night. Gracious hospitable owner who knew our names without us telling him. Very expensive... More

Coombe House has yet again lived up to all my recollections. Beautiful country house, superbly comfortable and spacious room, with views looking over fields, which even on the wild and windy night were spectacular. It is like being transported back to a time. The vegitarian dishes were fantastic, each course presented to perfection amazing attention to detail. The service was,... More

We booked a meal here for the Saturday after Christmas and certainly weren't disappointed. We were welcomed upon our arrival and taken through to the lounge for pre-dinner drinks and canapés. The lounge area was sumptuous and relaxing with a lovely log fire. The drinks menu is very extensive with a selection of liquors, cocktails and wines. For our meal,... More

Quintessential country house hotel set in rolling acres of parkland & a long, long drive . Go for the Tasting menu ideally with the establishment's own choice of wine (different one with each course). A slight pity it was necessary to check the menu at each course to see what we were about to enjoy rather than the waiter describing... More

This place is almost like a secret you want to keep. I have been there many times and I always feel it is special and like stepping back in time - from the moment you drive through the gateway and up through the long driveway through the fields then it looms in the distance on the hill. I am transported... More

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
