Stayed at this hotel a number of times and me and the kids love it . Excellent facilities, nice rooms, friendly staff and the tarka trail on your doorstep for a long cycle ride. Good choice of ciders at the bar when you get back!

If your looking for a place to stay in North Devon this is it!!!! It may not drag you in from the outside, looking like one of those non-descript whitewashed motels in an American movie, but just like the Tardis the inside surprises.

Just returned from 6 day holiday stay. Barnstable is not your typical West Country holiday resort, very much a commercial town. The hotel is therefore very well suited for business travellers and conferences, and offers all the facilities one would expect. These facilities also make it pleasant change for holiday makers to the chintz of some traditional tourist hotels. We... More

The function room was cool and pleasant and the hotel served an excellent buffet. The remainder of the hotel was unbearably hot....bar, corridors and rooms were all too hot for comfort...This hotel is in need of a/c in the bedrooms where sleep was virtually impossible due to the heat. Windows only had very restricted opening....Seagulls screamed constantly day and night.......horrendous.
