The hosts, Zoe and Steve Williams, are delightful people. The view from our room over the town toward the church clock tower was very nice. The bed was quite comfortable, and the accommodations in general were excellent.

Beautiful House and stunning bedroom, the owners were so warm and friendly with us, excellent breakfast! The house is in the center of the town, but the place is very quiet and silent. Very near to restaurants and local pubs

We first booked in here in 2010 because a web search showed it to be the only B&B in Moreton willing to accommodate small children. We (me, wife, toddler) are just back from our 3rd or 4th stay in the Family Room, a lovely large room on the top floor with a bautiful view out across the hills. Steve and Zoe always make us incredibly welcome and provide a lovely breakfast at a time to suit us, not them. It's always very laid-back and is an easy place to relax. Add to this the excellent value for money the fact that the Old Post House is perfectly situated both for town amenities and exploring Devon and Cornwall and you are on to an absolute winner!

I've been there with my family early this Month (September), I've been recommended this place by a friend of mine.

Wonderful location in Moretonhampstead, a lovely old fashioned village just outside Dartmoor National Park. Beautiful surroundings. The building is very old (listed I think) but works has been carried on and it is very comfortable! Lovely staff-owners, we spent half an hour chatting after breakfast and they suggested me the best route to visit Dartmoor.

Exceptional value for money, huge rooms very clean with huge bathrooms. I will be back.

We stayed at The Old Post House for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby.
Steve and Zoe were really helpful and so friendly before we even got there (we were arriving with only an hour to spare to get changed etc before going to the venue) and let us have our room a few hours early as it was available.
The room was spotless - one of the cleanest rooms i've ever stayed in, and whilst the bathroom was small it was perfectly formed and did the job just fine. Bed was very comfy and everything neat and tidy with everything we needed in the room and very value good value for money.

We didn't need to ask for a parking permit as we found a nearby street to park in which was free, but had we needed one it was available.

Breakfast was spot on and they weren't too strict on times to get down and were very accommodating if you wanted something other than the 'full English'.

We would definately recommend The Old Post House and definately stay again.

Very acccomodating hosts in Steve and Zoe. Lovely clean and spacious room with en suite and tv/video. The House itself is very large but like a lot of properties in the village it doesn't show this from the road. Breakfast was lovely with cereals, full english and toast. We would certainly visit again The village is very self contained with three pubs, a hotel,cafes and an excellent butcher. Although we have visited South Devon before, we have never visited this village. However we would certainly do so again as it's a good base for the area.
