Stayed overnight, staff really friendly and helpful, but hotel very dated in need of a total overhaul. Restaurant for breakfast very dark hardly any natural light as lights on. Room was adequate for our needs. Code entry door system to get into main building as not a 24 hour hotel. Great if you are using it for a quick stop... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. The hotel is under constant refurbishment, with the restaurant being extended as we speak! - hence the fact that there were no windows and the notices everywhere apologising and thanking you for your patience. The restaurant and Haytor suite will then also be decorated. We are not a... More

Outdated hotel. A renovation of the hotel is needed. We had a small and very sober but clean room whit a little dated bathroom Simple English breakfast however a continental brakfast is not good possible For dinner we ordered a meal with chicken but thatwas a deluge of nasty thyme sauce. Friendly staff and good location with regard to Dartmoor

Stopped off on the way to Cornwall for one night and had fantastic service! Travelling with family who have a 7 month old child - table was reserved ready in the restaurant for us in the evening and cot was in the room ready. Carvery was gorgeous and even got given extra meat without extra charges. Worth every penny!

moorSituated on the outskirts of Ashburton and nestling in the foothills of Dartmoor, this hotel bar and restaurant is very much a traditional country watering hole. The restaurant is spacious and well-appointed. Apart from a large birthday party it wasn't too busy when I visited, so I was somewhat surprised and a little irritated that I was left with a... More
