I can't think of a single even slightly bad thing to say about this pub and hotel. We stayed for three nights for my husband's birthday and everything about our stay was outstanding. We arrived to find a parking space reserved for us, and got a warm welcome at reception.
We stayed in the suite and it was great value (we booked well in advance online and got a really good discount offer) and it was gorgeous. Huge bed, well furnished, spacious. Separate to the bedroom was a little cosy lounge positioned above the entrance to the pub which was a nice area to sit and read and meant a bit more space. When we arrived there were fresh pastries in our room which was a lovely touch. The room comes with tea and coffee facilities and biscuits too. You can get room service from the restaurant downstairs as well. There was a big spotless bathroom and plenty of nice toiletries and fluffy white robes too.
Breakfast was great - you order from the hot menu and help yourself from the cold buffet selection. There is lots of choice and the cooked breakfasts were superb; they try to source their food locally. We ate in the restaurant twice and both meals were excellent. So was the mulled wine we enjoyed before dinner!
The place is organised so there is a nice pub part at the front downstairs, with the restaurant (also the breakfast room) at the back in a well lit atrium extension. The rooms are upstairs. Reception is in between the pub and restaurant and isn't staffed full time given the size of the place, but every time we went down someone was always quick to come from the bar or restaurant. There is also free wifi, helpful as phone signal is pretty limited in the area.
Chagford itself is a lovely little village although we didn't explore too much as we were using it as a base for walking. The hotel is old and has an attractive frontage too with the car park at the back. Overall, we would recommend this place to anyone and definitely would go back on our next trip to Devon.
