Popped in here whilst down on business in area, with a colleague for some drinks before dinner & found the staff both charming & very helpful in all we asked upon. Although we did not eat there, as had plans elsewhere, the Restaurant was busy on both nights & in reading the Menus, the food options were wide & varied,... More

We visited the Ilchester Arms hotel in January 2016 for a family lunch gathering - a convenient rendezvous between Sussex and Devon. The food was excellent - a very high quality meal from a well managed kitchen. The service and ambiance was relaxed; we were not rushed and the young waiting staff were attentive and professional. Terrific value as well.... More

We spent one night to make Christmas shopping a more relaxed affair whilst at Street and to explore the area the next day. Lovely room (room1) right at the top of the building - brilliant children's castle bunk built in the large walk in wardrobe area - would have slept there !! All the expected room amenities and a comfy... More

A number of my friends and family stayed here as we were celebrating my 40th at the Italian restaurant next door. This hotel has a very cosy and welcoming bar downstairs. Rooms were clean, had wifi and spacious (superior double). Breakfast was awesome - I'd go back just for that!

We stayed one night in the Superior Family Room in November 2015. Well equipped, family friendly, very clean, and overall great service. Extensive menu in the restaurant, the presentation and quality of food was excellent, surpassing expectations. A real gem - would highly recommend and will definitely return !

We dined here whilst staying nearby to visit the Fleet Air Arm Museum a few miles away. A first rate choice it turned out to be. We had reserved a table, which proved necessary, as the place was full. We were greeted warmly and chose the special of Hanger steak for one and a local whole plaice with salad for... More

I was on my way to Exeter so only stayed one night, but had a lovely time and would like to come back with my husband sometime. The staff were very friendly, and the food was very nice too. The room was small but warm and very comfortably (and trendily) furnished and the modern decor in the bar was nice... More

Wonderful pint of Sharp's Original to wash the travel dust away. Problem..no food on Sunday evenings! bit odd for an hotel. However, no problem as it turned out. Across the road... More
