Reviewed March 4, 2014

Booked the winer special as a birthday treat. Easy good communications and advised about the car park 1 minute away which you do not have to pay for in the winter. Checked in, both dogs welcomed. The room was lovely, very clean and nicely furnished, bathroom spotless and shining.
All the staff were lovely, we had a light snack in the lounge with a drink on the first night, good selection of magazines and cozy by the fire. We breakfasted in the bar so we could have the dogs with us, the table was set and it was lovely. Good full English and cereal/fruit etc. We returned after a days walking and were again welcomed by the staff. Dinner was amazing, ribs and scallops to start both lovely and cooked to perfection, the beef bourgingnon and chicken pie were just amazing. With a bottle of red we were utterly stuffed and couldn't manage pud :-( next time.
Cannot recommend the hotel enough, we will be going back. Perfect base for exploring the moors, building, decor and food all lovely and the staff couldn't be nicer. Thanks for a lovely time.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel, it's lovely to read such a glowing report! Delighted you had such a great stay with us and appreciated the ambiance, the housekeeping and the food. The team here take pride in what they do and we welcome customer feedback, thank you. Well-behaved dogs are always welcome as the walking in the area is so good, as you discovered. Perhaps next time you'll need to walk a little further and then you might had room for the pud! We hope you will be back to see us again soon.

Not my first visit but my first review.

Saturday lunch.

Had the best boeuf bourguignon in a long time. Sticky toffee pudding also good but not exceptional.

Friendly staff.

Definitely worth a detour if you are in the area.

Thank your very much for your review - short and to the point! Yes, the boeuf bourguignon is a *very* popular dish whenever it is on our menu. We will endeavour to make our sticky toffee pudding exceptional next time too!

Stayed here twice in recent months on business. Hotel exceptionally well appointed. Room not huge but very comfortable. Staff are professional and really friendly too. Food is excellent, evening meal in the bar really good quality. Breakfast is really good, loads of choice and fresh. Bonus of free parking down the street out of season.

We had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is well located in Moreton. All the staff we encountered were very friendly. The communal areas of the hotel were very smart while still feeling traditional.
The breakfasts were good, as were the evening meals which we took in the bar. My gluten free diet was well catered for, the staff were knowlegeable about gf and adapted some things for me which was nice. We would certainly like to stay here again as there are plenty of things to do in the area with plenty of good walks.

Room Tip: Room 1 is quite large, with a small sofa as well as arm chair. It is at the rear of the hotel.

Thank you for your kind words about the hotel. I think it's fair to say our staff are genuinely proud of where they work and live and we enjoy welcoming people to the area and chatting to them. Dartmoor is a great place to visit and we are always happy to recommend places to visit and things to see and do. We hope you'll come and stay with us again soon.

We stayed at Christmas. The package was fairly expensive but from the minute we arrived the service & quality of every aspect of this moorland market town hotel was impeccable. Expertly run by Karen and her well trained team the hotel is smartly presented and the food varied and with local ingredients and plenty of it. Christmas Eve Dinner and Christmas Day Lunch, when we had 5 guests, were superb. Tasty, hot and served with aplomb. Our room was delightful and the bed the softest and most comfortable we had ever encountered. Our black lab was made especially welcome and all in all the whole thing was faultless. See you again soon.

I have had the pleasure of recently dining twice at this fine establishment. On both occasions we had dinner, once in the bar and once in the restaurant. The ambiance is so good, the bar is warm, cosy and welcoming while the restaurant, although more formal, is still friendly and very comfortable - as is the lounge for pre and post dinner drinks. The whole place oozes a refined calmness, comfort and style. The staff are universally excellent, no matter if they work in the bar, reception or restaurant, they are friendly charming and efficient with just the right mix of humor and 'service mind'. The food, on both evenings, was really very good indeed, the preparation was imaginative, cooked to perfection, seasoned just right and well presented. 5* London quality dining. Really two very enjoyable evenings.
