The hotel is located in a delightful market place in a small town off the North Devon Link Road. The buildings ooze history. Reception was helpful, including an offer to carry cases, and a permit was supplied for the car park at the rear of the hotel. This was easy enough to locate. The room was large with a view... More

We had an Amazon deal and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel. We had a warm welcome and our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel was situated in a small market town that had lots of interesting old buildings with unusual architecture, it was a good base to explore North Devon. We were blessed with... More

We picked up an excellent deal from Amazon Local for this hotel for two nights bed and breakfast with dinner on the first night. This took us to a delightful market town we'd never visited and a good base for exploring the North Devon coast. The food was excellent and we were offered a dinner deal on the second night... More

Great place to stay in the centre of South Molton. Rooms and the hotel is far beyond the quality I would expect from a 2 star hotel, i have seen worse in 4 stars! breakfast was excellent, staff were helpful. definitely recommend!

It was a fantastic experience. So nice to be at a family run hotel who care about the customers. I spend a lot of time in hotels on business, mainly corporate owned without any personal treatment. They even provided black pudding for breakfast even though it wasn't on the menu. Now that is what you call service.

stayed two nights, on a deal with breakfast each morning and dinner one night. We were invited to book again for the second which we did straight after the first - great menu, no limitations on which menu can be ordered from - bar/restaurant/specials - good service and great food. The room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay... More

We thought South Molton would be a convenient centre to re-visit old haunts of many years ago in North Devon and the voucher deal offered a reasonable price. I would class the hotel as what used to be called a "commercial hotel" I.e. offering acceptable facilities for a short stay business traveller. Staff, beds and food were all excellent but... More

Thank you for your kind comments. Our hotel is a Grade 2 listed historic coaching inn dating back to the 1720's as the earliest recorded date of there being an inn on the site. We do have a few creaky floorboards but try our hardest to ensure that modern needs are met. For example we have wifi throughout the hotel,... More

Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was good. The restaurant was closed on Sunday evening but we were provided with bar meals which were perfectly acceptable. In addition the location was perfect and South Molton is a charming little town

The hotel staff were very helpful with booking and being flexible. They were welcoming and the breakfast was good. They kept the bar open for us on the first night until the early hours, but bizarrely, when it was the owners job to work the bar, it shut by 10.30. The rooms were OK. We may go back there next...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise again to you for the closure of the bar before your return to the hotel on your second night's stay. Had I been aware of this as a requirement I would have arranged suitable late night cover. However I am pleased... More
