We stayed here as part of an organised HF holiday group and loved it. We went walking whilst our daughter attended a really well organised multi activity week which included canoeing, rock climbing and body boarding amongst other things. Food really great and plenty of it. All the staff really helpful and the entertainment really good. We enjoyed a falconry display one night and a harpist during dinner on another evening. OK our bedroom and bathroom was fairly basic, and carpets a little threadbare in places, but they were clean, comfortable, functional with a hairdryer, radio, television, tea making facilities and there was plenty of hot water. The public areas were very nice and we enjoyed sharing our dining table with other guests. Views were truly stunning and the gardens beautiful. We throughly enjoyed our walks and were with a really nice group of people. Also an easy walk up to Hay Tor and to the national park visitors centre next door. We also enjoyed afternoon tea at the dandelion cafe which was on site.

I stayed here on a short walking holiday with HF Holidays, who own the property. I felt the room was better than the other HF property I stayed at in the Lake District. The common rooms were very smart and the food served was good. One minor grumble was that internet access was very slow. The hotel is between Bovey Tracey and Hay Tor - a very nice quiet location - there is a bus stop close by, though I travelled by car.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is set up to serve HF guests and does this very well - not sure whether it would have suited non HF guests so well. They did have a folk group playing in the attached cafe on the Friday evening which livened things up, but otherwise the atmosphere was maybe a bit too quiet for a holiday.

beautiful location and I mean, truly stunning. We arrived at what seems the back of the Hotel, parked, entered and found our room key on the sideboard. No sign of a Reception or Receptionist. We asked another guest where the rooms were (it wasn't signed at all) and went up to our room (34). The room is very dated and unclean. The carpet had hairs in it, the radiator enamel is all chipped, mustard coloured coving, green pearl effect headboard, grouting in the bathroom either black or missing...disappointing as it wouldn't take a lot to turn the rooms around. I went downstairs to ask if there were more modern rooms, found the lovely Receptionist who said that "all the rooms are the same I'm afriad". The Hotel is clearly catering for the walking market and that's a shame. We went to the bar at 10pm and the average age must have been 70. Because of this, we had the best night's sleep ever in a hotel. Noone charging through the corridors at 3am, no doors slamming by inconsiderate guests. If the Moorlands could just shell out some money on the rooms they'd be full every night I'm sure. We overlooked the gardens which were a real pleasure. The Staff were outstanding, the barman, when I asked him, gave me a short, interesting history on the link to Agatha Christie, the breakfast staff were attentive, the breakfast was superb (everything you could possibly want) and the downstairs was very elegant and charming.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much!

Heavenly location right on the moor - just cross the lane to walk right over the hills! Simple, clean, comfortable rooms, house and gardens redolent of the 20s and 30s. Very good breakfast, and cafe on site. Warm. Staff could not do enough, friendly and helpful.

Obviously set up for walking holiday parties, this hotel is located by Haytor just on the edge of Dartmoor and an ideal location to explore the area. Room was a bit small and bathroom a little retro, but great views out across the grounds, friendly staff, free umbrellas to borrow and all the wax dubbing for your walking boots you'd ever need. Try to get to breakfast before the stampede.
