Myself and my husband had a much needed break here over the August Bank Holiday. The building is beautiful and soaked in history. The staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and my request for the 'snug' table in the restaurant window was honored even though it was a busy night and I would have understood if they'd been unable to reserve a specific table. There was the occasional mishap but the staff were so lovely that it was not a problem, and actually made the place seem even more personal to us. The bathroom could do with some attention but we slept soundly and every meal in the restaurant, including breakfast, was superb. The manager (a Scottish man whose name escapes me now!) was very good at spotting any problems and kept a good eye on his staff. The Hoops Inn is not The Ritz, but you wouldn't want it to be. Two other highlights: the butterflies enjoying the flowers on the approach to the entrance and the North Devon Mini car procession that we were able to wave to thanks to a friendly member of staff who informed us the exact time they would be coming through Clovelly. It made our day!
