Moorland Garden Hotel

Booked a room for my partner's parents for father's day gift on last Friday.
Although it was such a short notice, hotel has arranged to put a nice card for their room and upgraded room as it's special occasion and all were confirmed via email straight away, which was very impressive.
They were very impressed with the service from hotel staff and enjoyed their meal.
I will recommend this hotel and looking forward to stay there in near future.

Booked this hotel on a Saturday night just half an hour before turning up at 8.45 (forgotten appointment), and were greeted nicely both on the phone and in person, despite the fact that we were booking very late and there was a wedding party in progress. Food in the restaurant was better than expected, although there was a hiccup with a desert, which staff dealt with very professionally. No wine listed by the glass on the wine menu is probably an error that could be rectified... Fortunately we ended up happily drinking by the bottle instead! The room was rather smaller than those pictured on the website, but perfectly adequate for our needs, a comfortable bed and modern clean bathroom, away from the noise of the wedding party noise. The situation right at the edge of the National Park made for a lovely drive and a walk in the morning. If the wedding party hadn't been using it, there was a lovely terrace overlooking the garden. Good quality at a reasonable price.

We booked this hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary. I was told on booking that there was a wedding taking place on the day of our stay and told they would put us in a quiet room. We were not disappointed, we were given room 227 which is a premier double and a very pleasant room with views over the gardens. We booked Bed and Breakfast so ate out and returned to the wedding reception in full swing however the service wasn't affected and we were dealt with promptly. The weather was beautiful so we had the window open in the room which meant there was some noise from the reception but nothing to bother us and when we settled down and shut the window there was very little noise. We had a good nights sleep (the bed was very comfortable) and had a very nice breakfast which was a buffet style with hot and cold options. Overall a lovely stay and would definitely recommend and return for another visit.

We made a booking at the very last minute and needed somewhere that was dog friendly! When I rang the hotel, the lady I spoke to was extremely helpful and found us a doggy friendly room, and it was booked with no fuss.

The hotel itself is lovely, set in lovely grounds just on the outskirts of Dartmoor. The rooms are a good size, clean, lovely bathroom, and ours had a dog bed and two dog bowls.

Every member of staff we spoke to were all extremely helpful and friendly, they are an absolute credit to the hotel! We felt very well looked after, especially when they let us have the restaurant menu in the bar (dogs are only allowed in the bar) and a table in the bar was especially set up for us for breakfast.

We ate from the Wildflower Restaurant menu and it was delicious, as was breakfast in the morning.

Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable. A really lovely hotel, we will definitely stay again in the future.

This was the first time we had visited the Moorland Garden Hotel since it changed its name from The Moorland Links Hotel and acquired new owners. We are local people and had heard good reviews of the food. So, for the occasion of my birthday took the plunge and booked a table. From the moment we arrived we could see that the staff were overly stretched. We were ushered into a lounge area by the gentleman on the reception desk and saw no-one for at least 20 minutes. We were slightly early so this didn't bother us much but we are accustomed, at other places we regularly visit to eat, to be offered drinks not just to be left alone without another word. When we eventually ordered and sat down to eat the whole meal took nearly 3 hours! Having said that the food was wonderful and the waiting staff (two girls and Simon the acting manager) were friendly, professional and very apologetic about the wait. Simon offered that our wine be free of charge as an apology which we readily accepted. I would highly recommend the food but hope that on our next visit they have enough staff to cope with the amount of people they have booked.

Dear Wannabetraveller59

Thank you for your kindly written review following your visit for dinner on Tuesday evening. i do apologise for the time dinner took, this is far from normal for us and was due largely to some timing issues with the party we had in coinciding with our other guests.

I was pleased to read that you did enjoy the food and do appreciate your comments regarding Simon and the service team. We would very much like you to come back and give us another opportunity to show you how we normally work.

Thank you again for your comments and observations, they are very useful to us in our efforts to improve.

Regards

Nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff at this superbly located hotel.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a touch of luxury in a special location.

The food was excellent and the quality of the room equally so.

We have just returned home having spent two nights at the Moorland Garden Hotel.

We booked the hotel last year so that we could attend a friends wedding.

On arrival at the hotel the breakdown of our initial bill showed that the room rate was £100 per night. I had booked the room last year and had been quoted £75 (via email) this was questioned right away with the reception staff and I was only charged £75. The Reception team where helpful at all times.

The rooms where good and the bed huge, the bathroom was also on the large size, the only downfall in the room was that the hot water took an age to come through. Plenty of towels and the bed was made up on a daily basis.

The breakfast is help yourself, with the eggs cooked to order. The breakfast was of a good standard with a good variety, including cereal and pastries.

On our first night we had a bar meal and can say that it was of a very good standard and good value for money. We did not go into the main restaurant, but the prices seemed to be what you would expect from a hotel.

The vicinity of the hotel is excellent and would advise a trip into Tavistock, a small quaint town about 10 mins drive.

In all this hotel is worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in this area, with the staff being helpful at all times.
