We stayed at the Dartmoor Inn for two nights because it was our 10th wedding anniversary.
Location: We wanted to go walking and the location of the Inn was good for this with the moor and some tors just behind it. It is also close to Lydford Gorge which we highly recommend for adults and older children. The Inn was easy to get to being not to far from the A30.
Our room (Brocade): It was nice but even though we'd seen the picture on the website not quite as expected. We were disappointed with the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room especially for £120 per night. It was very spacious as was the en suite. Although the window was looking onto the road the owners have done a good job of making it quiet by putting in secondary glazing which was good and worked really well. The theme of the room, and the whole Inn come to that, seems to be of old style recycled furniture, which although unexpected, worked. We really liked the style and for me that's saying something as it's not usually my cup of tea. There is a tele but it's very small and you can hardly see it from the bed. The bed was very comfy
Dinner: It was nice. It was really nice BUT expensive. You don't get much either. It's posh nosh. My fillet steak came with chips and vegetables. The veg was a giant mushroom, half a tomato and a piece of garlic for £23. My wife had a different dish though and she says it was plenty for her. Service was good and friendly.
Breakfast: EXCELLENT. Really good. I had bacon and egg, which was just that but we also got toast, granola, chocolate pots, fruit, orange juice, and tea or coffee so that was plenty to me.
Overall: We REALLY enjoyed our stay. Yes there was a few minor points but it didn't ruin our stay. Would we go again...YES but only as a really special treat due to price.
