We were welcomed at reception which was clean and tidy, given our room key and advised that we would be called when a space became available in the carpark. The receptionist called us several times to say... More

A nice hotel with pleasant junior staff but when i arrived at breakfast at 0850 only to wait 45 mins for a coffee and then be told the owners son does what he wants and if he decides to leave early (ie 0850 when breakfast closes at 9am) then thats his perogative, It is clear that those who are senior...

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review, we are pleased you liked the hotel, This incident is due to a misunderstanding between staff, I'm not sure why the other staff member who's on duty went into such detail regarding what the Male member of staff was doing whom was doing other hotel duties or on booking related calls,...

We found this hotel while motoring down to Devon. Although on a main road the room interior was everything you could wish for perfect room. Standards of hygiene were impeccable. Not sure how many guests were staying, as we only saw six people at breakfast. Staff were polite, food was well cooked. We only stayed for one night, but would... More

We stayed 4 nights and found the hotel comfortable and clean. Staff attitude was a bit cold but once the customer engaged with them they were fine. Suggest you do some training on customer service- a smile and hello worth a lot. Breakfast good. Other meals not really available but try local Italian (excellent).

I booked into this hotel expecting it to be basic - it was. The decor was fine and the room clean. The staff were just strange and extremely unwelcoming.

Stayed here for a weekend with some friends. The hotel is ideally located for the centre of town but is very basic. Checking in was an experience, the lady had a very bad attitude to customers, a simple smile and a 'good afternoon' doesn't cost anything. Our room had a window overlooking the road which meant we couldn't leave the... More
