We spent two nights here, linking a couple of weeks in the West Country. The hotel was chosen on location and price so we had no especial expectations. The track leading in to the car park in very rough, but it's the last bit of roughness about. The hotel is in a large open landscaped garden, I guess popular with wedding parties (there was one in progress on our arrival). The staff were faultless, friendly and helpful in spite of the numbers attending the wedding. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable, the bathroom was similarly all we could wish for. A proper tea pot is a nice touch, though no fridge for proper milk (UHT pots as usual). I had worried that the lively party (complete with disco) would disturb us, but we barely heard them. We didn't use the restaurant, but the bar food was very good (and an excellently cellared real ale as well), and the breakfast buffet was good quality local produce served with a coffee so outstanding I wondered if we had been given the manager's pot by mistake. (Too many hotels serve thin coffee )
The hotel is only a short drive from Plymouth, and is right on the edge of Dartmoor.
If I was in the ara again, I would seek this hotel out ahead of any other.
