Wonderful hospitality in a beautiful property which was spacious, comfortable and clean. I was made to feel at home from the moment I arrived until I left five days later. Attention was paid to every detail to make me feel welcome and enjoy a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend Syon House.

Such a beutiful location, it'd be difficult not to fall in love with the place. Bullet, the resident Jack Russell gave us a wonderful welcome and the aspect of our room afforded us magnificent views over the Devon countryside. The decor is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern styles with a hint of african/asian art thrown in. Tea, coffee,... More

From arriving to leaving we felt very at home. My son fell in love with her three dogs and often tool them for walks across... More

Living very close to Syon House, we have been lucky to be invited to a few social occasions by friends and colleagues. Independently for our business visitors, guests have had just rooms, or rooms with breakfast meetings, or evening meals for parties of 12 or more. Without exception, the service has been exemplary. Claire is the finest of hosts, is... More

We arrived just after 3pm and could find no-one to greet us or let us in. As we had pre-paid this posed a problem and we waited outside for at least half an hour. The telephone for the hotel went straight to fax signal, and in desperation I phoned a number on a people carrier in the carpark for another... More

Spent Saturday night with hubby and little doggy in this lovely, unique B&B in East Budleigh. Big bedroom and bathroom, gorgeous, luxurious bed and unique decor throughout. Fabulous sitting room and dining room. Breakfast delicious and plentiful and our hosts so welcoming. Lovely home and highly recommended.

The view across the valley is unbroken and dreamy. The view into... More
