“Top of the Hill and Moor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

My partner and I recently stayed at this Hotel while visiting the Westcountry Equine Fair. From our arrival, nothing was too much trouble for the staff to ensure that our stay was the best they could make it. The premises were clean and tidy, the room was excellent (loved the fact that I was able to plug my laptop into the big tv so we could watch a film other hotels seem to insist on disabling this facility), the bar food, restaurant meals and breakfast were excellent and good value and best of all the staff were happy (nothing will ever beat a genuine smile to make you feel welcome), kind, considerate and helpful. On both nights, the Hotel had parties, discos, functions and the staff seemed to be "on the go" constantly, though that did not stop them happily dealing with the requests of the hotel guests. Of these parties, we were not disturbed by any of them and really enjoyed two good nights sleep. My partner believes those were the best sleeps she has had in a long time :).

Special mention to Sue, who looked after us and our requests really well; Sandra, who ensured we had an excellent breakfast each morning; John, who dealt with our reception queries quickly and efficiently with a smile and to the other staff members who I apologise to for not remembering your names.

Our stay at the Gipsy Hill was a real pleasure and afforded us a level of relaxation we were not expecting. Once again, thank you all :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the coach house rooms due to the functions at the hotel. We were not disturbed at all b...

Admittedly the hotel is a little dated but the friendly staff make up for that. Everything was clean and the bedroom very comfortable. Breakfast was good and buffet style. The evening meal was of reasonable value but good quality. I had problems with connecting to the wifi which the staff worked hard to sort out. Conveniently close to the M5.

Room Tip: I had a room in the front and had no problems with any noise

Hotel is nice and welcoming. Staff are friendly and courteous and polite when dealing with customers. Hotel is a little bit dated in the furnishing but adds to part of the charm of the hotel and is not like the usual bog standard major chain

I searched for a long time on this site and others to find a nice hotel that I could take my partner to without spending a fortune. The four poster bed room was really great. The hotel is very clean and the staff all go out of their way to help. I have spent much more money in the past and had smaller rooms with nothing like as good service as had at the Gipsy Hill. The gardens are well kept and very pretty. Dinner was really nice and breakfast was very good too.

This hotel is really good value. Friendly staff wife great welcome. Clean and good sized room with lovely bed. Loved the gardens and the food was really nice too. I dont write reviews often but read few others on here and think they are wrong. I would send my friends here.

Do not book this hotel having the main image on the website in mind .... If you do you will be very disappointed ....!!

Service poor, rooms poor and very dated, restaurant food poor.

Overall this hotel had a dated, lost its touch, fawlty towers feel to it !!

Even the windows rattled and banged in the night at the slightest breeze !

Restaurant food is worse than what you'd get at a cheap pub !

Not happy at all .... Would rather stay in a travelodge !
