We recently stayed at the Ness on our wedding night with guests taking the remainder of the rooms. Though the booking was a little complicated as we had reserved the rooms over a year ago and splitting them into peoples names proved tricky, the staff were never the less helpful and we got there eventually. We also dined there with... More

Myself, my husband and 2 friends went to The Ness yesterday for lunch and we were very unimpressed, initially with the service. When we arrived we sat on an empty table as we weren't told anything else and then I had to go a member of staff for menus, she told me she would bring them over. Around 10 minutes... More

I holiday in Teignmouth regularly, and normally come across to The Ness for lunch or dinner as the menu is usually good and the food tasty. However, since the last time I was there, the menu has changed (for the worse) and I think the chef must have changed too. Positives - the staff are still lovely, and the views... More

We chose The Ness as it had been my fiancée's dream location since childhood, what a disappointment. On the plus side the location is second to none, with beautiful views over to Teignmouth and virtually it's own secret beach. The staff were friendly and helpful but sadly the whole stay was tainted by the most appalling food. Both the poor... More

We stumbled upon this hotel while driving down the coast looking for somewhere to stay for the night. We booked 2 fantastic rooms and experienced superb service. We ate in the restaurant which was exceptional both in quality and service. Had I read the trip advisor reviews I would not have stayed here and missed out on a great place... More

We arrived at 6.15pm on a Thursday and were told by one of the bar staff, not very politely, that there were no tables left except for those in the 'Boatyard,' a back room with no view and little light. As the place was nearly empty, we asked a friendly waitress if there were really no tables left and she... More

Just spent 3 nights here and thought it was excellent value. We had a family room as my 16 month old grandson came with us. We thought the ground floor room was good, the bathroom was fine with nice toiletries provided. And we had a lovely sea view! Breakfast was anything you wanted really so that pleased everyone! Location is... More
