Lunch in the new Brasserie. Staff very helpful ,but still inexperienced. Seemed a bit loathed to want to show you a menu.! Choice of food was good, service was quick, but all looked very bland on the plate, just no presentation.Will be interesting to see how this business develops and grows.

Visited this week after hearing lots of postive comments from local friends. Staff were polite and friendly. Daughter was bemused by childrens menu-due to lots of wording that she felt was tricky for younger children (she's 11) We weren't given a menu so husband had to go and ask for one. We weren't told that the menu (which said it... More

This is a very nice looking building, with a unique history which is easy to explore when visiting. The hotel has recently changed hands and is going through something of a transformation. We visited the hotel for some lunch following a very pleasant walk on the moor. The location of this hotel is great. From the outside the building looks... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday recently to discover that it had changed hands - for the better. It was very quiet but it will obviously take time to build up a new clientele. Very nice lunch, well presented and at a reasonable price. The people who served us were very pleasant and chatty. One constructive... More

revisited Moorlands end of september for a HF walking holiday week. Since my earlier visit April 15. Changes had taken place at management level Mark having replaced Mike. The hotel showed signs of a new brush, with a revised reception area and information wall. The hotel had maintained its high standards with regard to the bedrooms, food etc. One would... More

Stayed 4 nights with an HF guided walking group. It was an all round good experience, though I would question whether my room was actually a 'premium' bedroom as the bathroom was not totally up to scratch (bad shower set up). The food was excellent and all the staff very helpful. A nice location for Dartmoor walks and visits to... More

pleasant 3 star standard hotel that shows its age in 70s coloured bath suites but which have been face lifted to acceptable standard. On a HF break with excellent guided walks. A bit pricey for weekend high season breaks, but highly recommended for singles as social evening activities included.

Popped in to the Dandelion Cafe for a coffee before the Haytor walk / climb. Staff were friendly, polite and efficient (hard not to be as we were the only ones there ...) but what coffee shop /cafe allows itself to run out of decaf coffee and doesn't have biscuits? Cant believe it was so empty given there were about... More

Stayed one night at Moorlands so perhaps not long enough to make a thorough assessment but as the saying goes, only one chance to make a first impression. The hotel stands at the top of the villiage of Hayter Vale. It has a 3 star ratiing and I think that is a fair reflection. The hotel has an association with... More
