Hotel staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The rooms were clean but very dated and the walls were very thin, we could hear conversations in the adjoining room. Great shower and tea/coffee facilities.

The bedroom smelt, the pillows were awful and I received two anonymous phone calls during the night so very disturbed. Gym was fine and bar was ok but the overall appearance of the hotel was shabby and scruffy

Would definitely stay here again if in area.lovely pools and garden area. Excellent restaurant. Had great breakfast and a lovely dinner-catered very well for my husband's gluten free diet. Bedroom perhaps could do with a new decor but spotlessly clean.overall a very pleasant stay and in great location- very easy to find and well signposted.

Overall OK but some areas looked dated. The Venetian blinds in dining room were very dusty. Some of the crackers looked very old. The room was small, the beds very soft and duvets 'lumpy'. The breakfasts were not hot and the Chef behind the breakfast bar did not lift the lids with the hot food back so our arms were... More

Second visit, usually stay at the Park. Lovely rooms - very nice decor and spacious. Limited selection of coffee - last time there was none. Only one coffee in box. Few extra touches such as body lotion, would make it better. Not good view of bins overflowing from my window! Definitely prefer it to the Park.

The swimming pools were lovely. The bed was very comfy. Too far to walk into Barnstaple and location wasn't great but a nice hotel and food very good. Would have liked a cosy lounge area. So probably would stay at the sister hotel in Barnstaple next time.
