We booked a 4 night break at the end of May. On arrival, we were shown to our room and thought we were stepping back in time as the decor and furniture looked 19th century material. The room was unclean, shabby, dark and decor dated. Our view was overlooking a rooftop. The lounge in the hotel was extremely unwelcoming, the... More

Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you, or the staff do, to look after a customer and however they depart with a cheery smile and a wave, they go away and do what they can to rubbish the establishment, its owners and the staff who work really hard on helping visitors have a great time. They love to do this... More

It was a peaceful, tranquil location yet family centred. From the pool, the games room, the trampoline, big field for ball games and even the peacock roaming the grounds...what a family break! When we got home the kids said, thank you for a fantastic holiday! Debbie was extremely helpful...she really worked her socks off to please!

We were made to feel very welcome, especially after arriving much later than planned due to a delayed departure and Bank Holiday traffic. Once at Trimstone Manor our difficult day was a distant memory and we really did unwind with a glass of wine and a delicious meal. The venison was the best my hubby has ever tasted and cooked...

Stayed here the last weekend in May, and it is most certainly difficult to fault the view and the attention of the staff! Greeted by a very friendly lady, she made us feel comfortable and made us giggle. We had booked a double room however, something had gone wrong on the booking so we had ended up with a twin... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week in the Granary Cottage self catering apartment. Very comfortable it was too. I'm recovering from a bad back and because of this I asked before arrival for a super king bed. Upon arrival this had not been provided. The receptionist was very apologetic and soon rectified the situation. I had stayed... More

Booked this Hotel via trip advisor and late rooms for £80 per night, booking was confirmed. Within 3 days contacted by the hotel saying they could not honour the price. We would need to pay an additional £24 per night for breakfast and an additional £20 per night for the room. The hotel blamed this on late rooms having the... More

Stayed at Trimstone Manor for 2 nights with my friend and my dog. Location was lovely, really great base for exploring the surrounding area, Croyde, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

Just a brief overnight stay as a business traveller - chose Trimstone as it has a running machine in its small gym room. Wonderfully quiet, beautiful surroundings, the bumpy track to the hotel promises a sense of isolation, which didn't disappoint and suited me perfectly. Comfortable room, comfortable bed, excellent night's sleep. Up early for an 'indoor run' and then... More
