We chose Coombe House Hotel in Devon for a week's rest and relaxation partly because they allow dogs to stay. We had a comfortable room with its own door into the gardens. The public areas are traditonal 'country house' complete with huge log fire in the great hall. We were welcomed by Mark and Fiona who could not have been... More

We went to Coombe House for five days on our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We had an excellent stay there. The food is excellent and our room was lovely with views over the downs. The staff were all pleasant and we were well looked after. A little expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

Coombe House at Gittisham is a superb country house hotel with incredibly friendly and professional staff and highly individual rooms. However, one of the best reasons for staying here has to be its afternoon full English teas (booking is thoroughly recommended to ensure you can be seated). A plate of beautiful little sandwiches is followed by fresh-baked fruit scones and... More

We stayed for two nights in Combe House which is, undoubtedly, a very special place indeed. We found it easy to relax and enjoy the beautiful hotel and grounds. The gardens were a delight. The food was excellent. The room was comfortable and quiet. The hotel's aim is to help guests to feel at home. The staff are, undoubtedly, a... More

My boyfriend and dog spent two nights here and were immediately made to feel welcome. The staff are polite and formal, but in a friendly way, providing faultless customer service and create a pleasant environment. The dog was made to feel most welcome and he had a great time! The house is grand, immaculately clean and old in the way... More

The food was excellent and service very good. Room was comfortable and inviting. Some annoyance with self important film crew but that is universal and not a reflection of the hotel. Generally the stay was very good and I would stay here again if I was in the area.

We stayed one night with our dog, and it couldn't have been more idyllic, starting with the special cocktail (3 types of fresh mint with gin) recommended by the bartender. Dinner was excellent, as was the breakfast the next morning. We felt like royalty gazing out on our acres of land and grazing Arabian horses. Staff couldn't have been nicer.

We stayed here for 2 nights in July, 2011 and found it to be a great place to use as a base for exploring the South Devon coast. The hotel is a gorgeous country house with a long history and stands in its own impressive grounds at the end of a long drive from the chocolate-box village of Gittisham. The... More
