We stayed here on a Travelzoo deal and were not disappointed. From our arrival down the long drive through the golf course, to the valet parking, warm welcome and fresh, clean and comfortable room. We enjoyed our tour of the hotel and facilities and happily wandered around the grounds enjoying the beautiful views and peace of Dartmoor. The golf course and putting greens were immaculate and inviting and the range of outdoor country pursuits on offer amazing (if a little pricey). We loved the Scottish baronial feel of the place, the comfortable lounges and bar, the spa, afternoon tea on the South terrace and dinner in the Edwardian dining room (just slightly disappointed to see some guests wearing jeans in the dining room!). We didn't try the bistro as travelling without children but it looked to be an excellent venue for families.
We were made to feel extra special on our wedding anniversary and it was a real treat simply to relax and read the papers from cover to cover. Although we travelled without our family on this occasion, this is clearly a hotel that welcomes families (and dogs) - all of which were well behaved and delightful. We especially enjoyed the very entertaining falconry display and would loved to have stayed longer. The suites and lodges looked fabulous and we also inspected the disabled accommodation with wet room, for future visits with elderly parents. Would definitely recommend for a luxury stay, where guests are made to feel at home and nothing is too much trouble for the superb staff. Extra special mention to Max who served us afternoon tea and in the dining room and was particularly attentive and charming!
