Wow....we couldn't have found ourselves in a more quintesstially English hotel. In fact, it wasn't like any hotel we have experienced as we were met by Fi who greeted us into her home like a long lost friend whom she was so thrilled to see.
We loved our room, Houndtor; it was big, spacious and had many original features. The view was breathtaking. The room had a small, compact bathroom with shower. Fi had told us the water was from a well, (tasted very good), and there may be a loss of pressure but we didn't experience that, our shower was fine and hot at all times.
The dining room and food was delicious, the wine and service second to none. The lounge had a roaring log fire, even in August, which just added to the character and which drew most of the guests together in the evening where you could chat and share experiences over an after dinner drink.
Another plus was the greeting by the resident cat, Chole and dog Porche. It is an incredibly friendly hotel for humans and dogs alike, so much so that Fi allowed my children to take Porche for a walk through the surrounding countryside so they were delighted.
Coming from North America and reading The Hound of the Baskervilles, it was such a truly delightful experience to be able to stay in a hotel on Dartmooor, imagining Arthur Conan Doyle penning this story with the mist swirling around.
We can not recommend this hotel highly enough.
