“Best Fish and Chips in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I eat here a lot and I have to say my go to meal is always the fish and chips, so much so that I bought my parents here to sample them. The fish is always good and the chips are just about the best I've had in a restaurant.

It's good value too.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

This was our second stay at the Seven Stars. Booked a deluxe room for two nights to celebrate an anniversary. Warm welcome, fabulous room. Very clean, excellent bed, lovely staff particularly Ewen in the bar and the amazing, sparky lady who serves the breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff were helpful and jolly. This is a very busy and buzzing establishment with a great atmosphere, plenty of food choice, excellent wine list. My partner (an ale buff) loves the beers on offer. Dinner in the restaurant was very nice indeed. Quick, competent service, good food and not overpriced. A great base for exploring Totnes. We will return.

Room Tip: We have stayed in 2 of the deluxe rooms that face out onto the street. It can be a little noisy late...

We stayed 2 nights over the New Year and had a fabulous time.Six of us stayed and we all liked our rooms which were varying in price. Rooms were quiet despite being in town and above a popular bar. All the staff from cleaners to reception to bar staff and waiters were very friendly and attentive. The entertainment on New Years Eve was fantastic, with two groups in two areas of the hotel and even a disco for the group's breaks. The venue was great for mixing with the very friendly locals and they visited the hotel, paying for wristbands on New Year's eve, therefore ensuring a mix of age groups. All meals were delicious and attentively served - amazing as they served so many on NYE and there was a great choice at all times. The weather was terrible but the hotel is so welcoming that we hope we will stay again in 2014. They offer some great deals. The sales were great on our last day as the town offers some lovely and unusual shops.

I was part of a work party to the seven stars for a xmas party. There was another party there with us sharing the upstairs room. The hotel/pub was very busy, as it is usually. I have eaten there in the day and evening and the food has been ok but I had been warned by several people that they do not cater well for large parties but was prepared to have an open mind. The starter which was soup was ok but the main, a turkey roast (there was very little choice for the cost of £27 a head!) Was not good. The turkey was off a catering roll and only had a very thin slice of bland tasting breast meat and a tiny bit of dark meat. We were on a table of 12 and there weren't enough vegetables only 2 dishes and when we asked for more they had run out. On the table were 4 party poppers and crackers and a glass of strange tasting pink drink. The pudding was ok too a little indifferent. As I say I have eaten there several times and it has been fine and it is a lovely hotel in a lovely town. All I can say maybe stay clear of booking a large function there as the food isnt cheap and very in different.

Room Tip: Try the food on a normal day and they do good special breaks

royalsevenstars, Manager at Royal Seven Stars Hotel, responded to this review, January 19, 2014
Thank you for your comments. I’m sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your party night. We do take as much care and attention for 140 guests as we do for 2.
We use local supplies and good local food in all areas of the hotel. The turkeys we use are not catering rolls but fresh turkeys which are boned and rolled hence the shape. We always serve seasonal vegetables and potatoes family style on the table and offer plenty for everyone so we apologise if there was not enough on the evening and we of course would offer more so please accept our apologies if this did not happen. All of our desserts in the bars, brasserie and banqueting are made by our pastry chef including our Christmas puddings.
We cater for up to 200 people on many functions throughout the year and do take care and attention on all. Please accept our apologies if you were disappointed and we did not make your evening special. When you are next in please see one of our management team as we would love to restore your faith in us.

Together with two friends, my wife and I called in to the Royal Seven Stars Hotel in Totnes just for a refreshing cup of tea. There was a roaring log fire that not only kept away the winter chills but also created a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The service was excellent and the tea perfect. We intend going back to stay overnight and to try the restaurant. If you are ever in Totnes and want a high quality place to get a refreshing drink then this Hotel is worth calling in to.

Had two nights at Royal Seven Stars Hotel and found the rooms well up to expected standard and beds extremely comfortable. Restaurant good and reasonably priced. Situated in the centre of Totnes but not noisy. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Beautifully kept old-England hotel, run by talented energetic management and staff. We've just returned from a Christmas Party (in January) in Totnes and The Royal Seven Stars looked after everyone with creditable aplomb again. Thanks. We'll be back very soon.
