To sum, the hotel was great for what we wanted, visiting as a couple and getting away from it all. The service was good, in other areas things could have been a little better.
Firstly on arrival we were well-greeted, booked in with good service, the room we were given was fine, very comfortable bed, good view and 2 great night's sleep. The room was a little tired in places and a little grubby in others. This was not unhygienic but lacking polish here and there, a few odd stains and nothing a bit of elbow-grease would not shift in the bathroom.
Second, the food was great, buffet cold and fresh cooked hot for breakfast. The one night we had the pre-booked evening meal all was good. Prices were what one would expect and standard fine. It was in the restaurant that the service was notably good, all as one would wish.
We are not golfers but we did use the gym and pool which were as one would expect. The gym equipment was good and functioning, the pool was ok but once again, the decor looked a little tired, the floor tiles a bit faded and a renovation will be required soon. Service from the staff was good.
Location of the hotel is ideal for a trip to Slapton, Dartmouth or the Devon countryside - great for a couple.
To conclude, the service and food were first-class, the hotel is a little tired and rooms in need of a bit of a re-vamp.
