Went for lunch in August. Great food and lovely surroundings.

We were treated to three fantastic courses. The bread selection was particularly memorable. Service was also excellent.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. We will be back.

Our Stay at Gidleigh Park Hotel was so fantastic that we now call it Giggely Park. It is in the absolute back of beyond, up and down some incredibly narrow country lanes - but it is absolutely worth sticking to it and getting there! We stayed for 5 days at the end of a long trip and needed to relax and unwind - but with a few nearby places for day trips. The room we had was actually more like an apartment and would have suited a family of 4. As we were a couple this meant we had plenty of room to unwind and relax, spread out and re-pack. There is a communal pantry to help yourself to tea/coffee and biscuits during the day, and we had a tray with port and fruit on it in our room to help ourselves to also. The biggest shower room I have ever seen and a lovely bath tub for me! The food was 5 star and many people come for special foodie stays were they stay for a night but have special menus during their stay. I would love to stay at Gidleigh Park again - perhaps next time when the bluebells are in bloom - as it is that kind of a magical place. Well done staff for making it feel like a home. We are looking forward to seeing you again.

We stayed here for my wife's recent birthday and although expensive it was well worth it. The hotel and grounds are superb and the staff are welcoming and always helpful and chatty, they make it feel like you are staying more in a home than a hotel. We had a rom at the front with super views down the valley and over the gardens

Room Tip: Go for a room with views down the valley

We stay here some time ago, I just have not got round to writing a review. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff. We were upgraded to a suite which was stunning at the front of the house. The quality of everything in this hotel surpassed all our expectations from the beautiful linen to the Mouton brown in the bathroom. Nothing was too much trouble. We were having dinner here as well and that too was excellent.
We sat in the lounge before dinner and had pre dinner drinks very comfortable. I cannot fault this place for accommodation or dinner it really is a very special place to be and a real treat from the norm. We will return without hesitation. If you are a walker their are beautiful walks in and around the grounds.

Room Tip: The suite to the front of the property are fantastic and have great views

A group of us were treated here for lunch, and what a treat. The service was exceptional. The approach to the hotel is not an easy one, make sure you follow their instructions .... but you will be well rewarded. A stunning location on the edge of Dartmoor, with lots of walking to be done to burn off the calories you've just eaten! Fine dining, with excellent choice of wines to match. The perfect place to relax whether for a day, or a weekend.
