For "the man who has everything" what could be better than a christmas present in the form of a night away at the Arundell Arms including the excellent Tasting menu for dinner. Despite the chilly January weather the hotel was warm and welcoming with a lovely log fire crackling away in the cosy lounge while we enjoyed afternoon tea and... More

What has gone wrong with this once perfect place the service has gone downhill and the food quality deteriorated this once special place is now overcharging and in my opinion serving mediocre food, don't think will bother again. The wine isn't even served at the correct temperature as it used to be, oh well plenty of better places to go!

Food was good and the staff were very friendly and patient. The only negative was the heat!!! Before our meal our large group was placed in a room with a roaring fire.... as well as the fire the radiators were also on! We found ourselves going outside in January to cool down!

Dear devonclaire28 Thank you for your review. I am glad you and your team had a great time whilst with us. Sorry about the heat. We thought that it was to be a colder night than it was but who would have thought that this winter would be as mild as it has been? Yours Adam More

We had an excellent New Years Day lunch. The food was very good, the service was very good and the atmosphere was very good. It was nice to sit by the fire in the sitting room for coffee afterwards for as long as we liked.

My husband and I took a break here as a Christmas and birthday present to ourselves. Lovely room, friendly staff, and absolutely delicious food. The four course tasting menu was outstanding, and breakfast was beautifully cooked. We will definitely be returning soon.

a very nice room, overlooking the garden. We had an excellent deal including room, 5 course taster menu and breakfast for £129 for two. The evening meal was second to none, service excellent and the breakfast equally good with plenty of choice all f which, locally sourced.

This was my thid visit to the Arundeel Arms wnd it will not be my last. Out of the fishing season this time, I had a wonderful morning riding across Dartmoor with Elaine from Liberty Trails - an absolute must for any visitor who rides. Not only did they look after me but also my dear Labrador, Myron, who was... More

We have been to the Arundell Arms on numerous occasions over the years. The hotel has a homely feel to it - especially in the winter months. The Arundell is excellent value for money. The restaurant is the main reason for our visits. The food is always excellent and the dining room has a nice feel. Service is very good.... More

Dear Turbotman Thanks for your review. I am pleased that you still think that we are great value for money. I agree that it is nice in winter. The log fires in the Sitting Room and the Bar add a warmth and comforting glow to the place. Adam More

We were just passing through, and weren't in a position to take advantage of the excellent fishing opportunities presented by this hotel. However, the rooms were great, the location is not too far off the main roads, and the dining is quite good. Breakfast is excellent. This is a very nice place to stay and I hope to come back.

A fine old hunting/shooting/fishing establishment at Lifton in Devon. We had a well appointed double room (no. 6) on the first floor overlooking the road (which was not a problem, noisewise) and free wifi. The hotel is dog friendly and we had our 13 year old chocolate Labrador, Cadbury with us. We had a fantastic evening meal with friendly efficient... More
