The best place to go if anywhere in the vicinity of Moretonhamstead without a doubt .... whether you just pop in for a coffee/drink/snack or have lunch (the special lunchtime menu is great value, good choices and always delicious) .. or an evening meal, equally good value/choice. The Manager, bar & waiting staff are friendly & welcoming and service is... More

We stayed a night and ate at the White Heart. The hotel is perfectly situated within Exeter city centre with its own car park only minutes away from the shopping centre and high street. The room was great. Located at the rear of the hotel, overlooking the car park, it was particularly quite considering its city location. The service was... More

I came to this hotel last weekend as part of a business trip. The hotel was very welcoming to me and the staff who are really good professionals who clearly care a lot about their brand/image. The hotel rooms are more than adequate, and even there was no room necessarily to seat a laptop - I made small arrangements, i.e.... More

Lovely people, delicious food. Was not expecting much, but the food was really first class. I went with my two children and they did their best to accommodate us all in one room. We also had their cream tea in their comfortable lounge one rainy afternoon, and it was a lovely experience being in that hotel.

Thank you for posting a review about the hotel and I can only apologise that we did not meet your expectations. All our rooms are different and some have been refurbished and some have not.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We are sorry that the cold selection offered for breakfast was not quite as you would have wanted. While are always happy to try and accommodate our guests' requirements, cheeses represent more of a continental-style breakfast and are not something we have been asked for before. However, we are delighted... More

We stayed at the White Hart for 4 days as my son was getting married nearby. From start to finish, the welcome and service we received was second to none.

The White Hart is a small, ancient hotel that will delight those who favour old buildings, steep stairs, crooked walls and atmosphere. But it is run with modern efficiency and customer service, thanks to general manager Karen and her team of eager, young staff. Spotlessly clean and tidy, the excellence of the service is matched by impressive food in the... More

About five years ago I ate dinner in this hotel with my husband when we were passing through Dartmoor. I remembered it as a pleasant meal in a nice setting so I suggested to my mum that we booked this hotel for our stay on Dartmoor at the weekend. We had a lovely stay there.

We received a lovely welcome and friendly smiles at The White Hart; the reception area is traditionally elegant with comfortable sofas in abundance. We went to our superior double room which had a four poster. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and spacious, and the bathroom mirror well lit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White Hart Hotel is a traditional old posting house at the centre of the small moorland town of Moretonhampstead set within the spectacular Dartmoor National Park. Under new ownership since early 2012, the White Hart Hotel dates back to 1639 and this historic Grade II listed building is being sympathetically refurbished to provide all modern comforts within a traditional setting. Our comfy sofa-filled lounge has a roaring log fire where you can relax and combine the delights of a traditional cream tea with the convenience of free wifi. An ideal base from which to explore this beautiful area of Devon, the White Hart has 20 well-appointed bedrooms in the main hotel and a further eight in a separate mews building. Our restaurant features the freshest local, seasonal produce cooked in a style that lets the quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. A free house, we stock a range of local real ales and have a handpicked wine list. DOGS - Dogs and Dartmoor go together. Dartmoor is great walking country and dogs are welcome everywhere in the hotel, except in the dining room. CYCLING - Dartmoor is a great area for cycling and we can offer secure bike storage, and have a drying room. SHOOTING - The area is popular for the sport of shooting and the Hotel is used regularly by shooting parties and we have a gun safe and have a drying room. GOLF - There are a number of good golf courses nearby and we can offer special rates with Bovey Castle Golf course, just 2 miles away, and Okehampton Golf Course, 12 miles away. ... more   less
