A wonderful gift....we were thoroughly spoilt from the moment we arrived at this most beautiful of houses. There are not enough superlatives to describe the elegance of Gidleigh Park. The lounge with its beautiful wood paneling, wood burner, period furniture and games selection 'hugs' you whilst the lovely staff serve endless, delicious sandwiches, cakes, scones and tea.......fit for Queen Victoria...

The finest of fine dining in the friendliest of hotels set in stunningly beautiful gardens. My husband and I were fortunate to spend a very relaxing and indulgent weekend at Gidleigh. It was THE most perfect of weekends and thank you to all the staff there for making it so.

We have been to Gidleigh a number of times over the years and it never disappoints. The service is flawless and the imaginative food is a joy. We normally take the set lunch menu, which is theoretically a three course meal, but with all the extras it actually feels more like 6 courses. It is certainly sufficient for us at... More

As a Christmas treat I took my partner for a meal at Gidleigh during our winter break in Devon. When we arrived we were shown into the lounge where they presented us with menus, nibbles and drinks. We decided to go for the a la carte menu and placed our order. We then went into the dining room and had... More

This stay was booked as an anniversary surprise and did not fail to live up to it's reputation. The staff were attentive and our room was comfortable and cosy. Little touches like the decanter of madeira wine in the room, complimentary glass of fizz before dinner and heated kennel for the dog all made the experience feel even more special.... More
