This was our first ever turkey and tinsel trip and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hostess, Jenny, was a lovely person, very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The hotel itself was also lovely with friendly, helpful and very hardworking staff - it was also decorated very nicely for Christmas. Meals were plentiful with good choices - we were always very full. The only moan we had was that the hotel, and especially our room, wasn't very warm. On the Wednesday we didn't go on the outing, but chose to stay at the hotel instead, however we had to sit with our coats on because we were so cold, even our room was very cold most of the time. The only time our room was really warm was around midnight when we didn't really need the heat. Having said all that and with hindsight, we should have complained whilst we were there. At the end of the day we did really enjoy ourselves, and it definitely hasn't put us off going again. I must mention the entertainer Wayne Champagne who was brilliant and so was the show at Babbacombe theatre which he was also in - well worth the money! My husband also enjoyed using the indoor pool and facilities - very good and very well kept.

My Mum, Uncle, Me and my Guide Dog have just returned from another fantastic Christmas break at The Coppice. Syd, Jenny and their staff worked extremely hard, and seemingly non-stop to provide a great Christmas getaway. The break was made extra special by the little touches such as the tins of sweets and biscuits placed in each room, a Christmas gift from the hotel delivered by Santa to our breakfast tables and daily afternoon tea and cakes. Food was plentiful and of good quality. We are all completely stuffed and I'm not sure I need to eat again until the new year! The hotel is spotlessly clean. Rooms are warm and beds are comfortable with plenty of pillows and fresh bedding and copious amounts of tea, coffee and milk.
Even after the awful storms on the Monday night the grounds were being tidied and cleared of debris on Christmas Eve morning, and during the heavy rain and winds the owners were constantly checking for any leaks or damage This demonstrates the hotel has owners with a passion for their business and a caring attitude towards their guests.
I'm a former hotelier myself and having an extensive knowledge of the business I'm very hard to please. I'm happy to return to The Coppice time and time again, and I'm sure you will be too.

This 4 day Christmas break with Jenny, Syd and their friendly hard working team was what can only be descibed as a fantastic experience. After battling through floods and gale force winds to get there, it was great to have the warm greeting we had, as usual. We were shown to our clean,cosy room where a complimentary tin of chocolates and another of biscuits awaited us. More gifts on the Christmas breakfast table for all guests were given and the 5 course meals over the whole break were excellent and served with a smile, on time with no wait between courses. The enertainment on offer every night appealed to all of us, most nights 2 acts kept us happy until late. The staff are workacholics making sure everything is spot on. Extra tea breaks were laid on in the afternoon with cake and good conversation was just one of a number of little additional things that made us feel much valued as their guests. All too soon we were having to say goodbye, so happy to have been part of the special Coppice festive experience. Thank you Jenny and Syd. Can't wait to return in the New year.

Had a great stay at The Coppice, along with my wife and 40 + friends. From the moment we arrived we were greeted and made welcome by Jenny & Syd. Could not fault the hosts, the staff, the hotel in general. Food superb, rooms spot on, service next to none. We will be back next spring, looking forward to seeing Syd, Jen and the staff.

Just returned from a 5day break with Just Go Tours. We arrived at the hotel after a good journey down there. Jenny came onto the coach and welcomed us to her hotel. The cases were unloaded from the coach but after booking in we fetched our own cases. Booking in was quite quick and we were given a room with a walk in shower as requested. It was a lovely large room overlooking the front of the hotel and had a double bed and a single bed in it. There was a double wardrobe with plenty of hangers and furniture with drawers in. The carpet, curtains, beds and bedding all looked new and the beds and pillows were really comfy. We never heard a sound all night, so quiet. The towels were changed every day and there was enough tea and coffee to keep us going all week. The hotel was spotlessly clean.
The food was good with a choice for dinner. We selected a table to sit at on our first night and we kept that table for the 5 days we were there. The ladies that waited on us were very nice, always had a smile for us and didnt keep us waiting for any of the courses. The only thing I thought was odd, coffee and tea were served at the bar after dinner at a charge of £1, did not see many drinking it (as we had more than enough in the room).
There was entertainment on for 3 out of the 4 nights we were there. The best night was when
Wayne Champagne, comedian/singer was on he was very funny and had a brilliant voice too. We went to Babbacombe theatre on the Wednesday evening and the show was really good, Wayne Champagne was also in the show and he was very entertaining.
The bus stop was only a short distance away so we spent 'our free day' in Torquay. Buses were every 10 minutes.
I would certainly recommend The Coppice Hotel and would like to thank Jenny and Sid for making our stay there so comfortable and enjoyable.
Oh and if you live in Stoke, Sid likes Oatcakes .
