We loved our stay in this small old fashioned hotel. It is set in a quiet hamlet within easy reach of Exeter, Dartmoor, Exmoor and the coast. The owners are charming and made us feel very welcome. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and had everything we wanted - comfortable chairs to watch TV, tea making facilities and a... More

This is a lovely small-and-friendly hotel in a convenient location for stop- overs or longer stays in this part of Devon's countryside with its access to other major routes. I stayed here four years ago and wanted to return because I recalled the charming dining room, gorgeous food and that it has dog-friendly bedrooms opening onto a small patio. My... More

Made very welcome, a beautiful building, very cosy and rustic. Nothing was too much trouble. We asked for a double having booked a single, no problem at all. Would have liked to have tried the restaurant but the staff were doing a dinner nearby for a function. Next time then. Really nice relaxing stay.

On the basis of some of these good reviews, we booked for just one night en route to Cornwall, taking a £22 taxi ride from Exeter Airport (and a £20 return ride in the morning). First impressions were that Barton Cross Hotel must have had its heyday in the 1970s, and one can only commend the owners for doing the... More

The photographs of this establishment exactly define what you are going to get with a distinct easy - slow - chintzy -seventies feel. Put it this way you wouldn't want to have breakfast in the dining room with a bad hangover. Certain bits a little worse for wear, but everything ok / satisfactory. No frills. It was a first for...

We have spent a night here before, a couple of years ago, but this time we were just there for dinner. There is a lot of comment on tripadvisor about the décor, and it's true that it has not been modernised for some time. But we don't care. The bar, where we were first taken, is cosy and comfortable. We... More

We wanted a good family run hotel not far from Exeter and discovered this one. We had a ground floor room with doors leading out to a small verandah and the garden. There was plenty of storage space and room to work if necessary. We particularly liked the anteroom between the bedroom and bathroom with a small shelf and the... More

Somehow, we didn't realise that the hotel is out of town in the middle of no where, however, it is very nice hotel, run by the owner and his wife. The small bar which was originally a farm workers cottage, was built in the 16th century, and the garden in front of the hotel is stunning. The breakfast was delicious,... More

We found this hidden gem a couple of years ago when our child started her first year at the university and always choose to stay there when we go back. Brian and Gina are the most wonderful hosts and their staff are lovely people too. We really enjoy this small quaint thatched hotel, which is in the middle of the... More

We stayed at short notice in their family room. We booked at short notice and I made a mistake entering the date. They helped and sorted it. Very helpful sorting a taxi to Exeter and accommodating our late return. Clean , quiet and comfortable and a v generous breakfast .... Next time we will order poached egg and kipper to... More
