We were a party of nine friends meeting for a weekend walking on Dartmoor. The welcome from Karen and her staff was warm, friendly, thoughtful and efficient. Our group was given the pleasant annexe of 8 rooms 20 metres down the road, which we had to ourselves. The standard of accommodation was 1st class, with real attention to details like wonderful bedding, soft towels and even a proper toothmug.The ambiance in the newly refurbished hotel was lovely, with a nice balance between clean modern colour scheme and old Devon wood.The food was good.They certainly know how to cook proper individual pies, or crispy duck, or starters like crispy squid with seschuan noodles, and the real ales and wine we consumed in great quatities were all good. The prices are extremely reasonable, given the quality. Moretonhampstead was very well situated for our days out walking on Dartmoor and is readily accessible to our friends who had travelled down the M5 into Devon. It's a bit of a gem, this place, and we're so glad we found it - with the help of Trip Advisor.
