This is our third visit to Gidleigh Park and it certainly won't be our last.
My wife and I stayed for one night with Otis (our intrepid red Poodle) and from the moment we walk into the reception we knew we were back in hotel heaven.
By the way you are greeted, you know that they have completely mastered the art of service with style, without subservience and totally without arrogance. With an operation as good as this it would be easy to get complacent. Happily, that word doesn't enter the "Gidleigh Park" vocabulary.
Our room was great and a suitable supply of doggy supplies were laid on for Otis (he awards Gidleigh his maximum 4 paw review - more cherished that 3 Michelin stars - he loves their staff and the fabulous walks).
Dinner was simply sublime. My wife and I went for 3 courses with wines chosen by our sommelier and it was truly a gourmet's delight. I opted for the Pigeon and quail egg starter followed by the sea bass. Both were truly amazing. My wife went with the scallops followed by the lamb and was equally pleased.
We walked it off the next day with a three hour hike across the moors, payed the exorbitant bill, and headed home more than a little happy. A great time was had by all and we'll definitely back. Otis thinks we should go every month but he's not paying!
