Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel

Reviewed October 1, 2012

The surround is amazing and the building is beautiful and elegant inside.
The wonderful amuse bouche of wild mushroom soup with truffle oil served in a delicate little tea cup and saucer was to die for! The duck confit starter with cooked plum melted in the mouth. The seafood assiette of cod, sea bass and plaice was simply devine. Other members of the family shared the same sentiments. We then retired into the main lounge for coffee and petite fours which were scrummy and a perfect end to a fabulous evening of fine dining. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. Having in the past been to some of the most amazing fine dining restaurants like Crabwell Manor, Craxton Wood Hotel and Frogg Manor this has to rate alongside these! The food is even better than Michael Caine's Abode in Manchester. Service is A1 and food worthy of a Michelin star.

Visited this delightful hotel in September. This is a previously owned private house now operated as a hotel by an independant operator with a string of small hotels. We visited to have the afternoon tea.

The welcome was warm, friendly and very attentive. The hotel is in lovely surroundings and the public rooms and garden terrace were havens of quiet rest.

The afternoon tea however could have been improved - the madeira cake was not fresh, the sandwiches had been sitting in a very cold fridge before service, and the crisps served with the sandwiches were soft and stale. In all the afternoon tea at £14.95 was not upto scratch. If they could only get the small details right then it would have been worth four stars.

If you are in the area it is certainly worth a visit - this might have been an off day.

We have enjoyed a lovely short break at this hotel and got a good deal by phoning the hotel direct.Our room(Petunia) was extra large and very well equipped.Staff were all very friendly and helpful-prehaps a little more training for the young bar and restaurant staff and then everything would be excellent.Within easy reach are some beautiful places to visit if you don't mind the difficult,hair- raising approach and exit.

We booked on Secret Escapes, so at least we didn't pay the full price. There are other who have reviewed the room in which we stayed. We had a lovely view of the bins and also treated to the smells from the kitchen, as the extractor was just below our room too. When we arrived the hotel smelt like overcooked brussel sprouts. The bathroom was dated and the bath robe was in tatters! Unbelievable. We went out for supper - so pleased we hadn't booked a meal in - and when we came back tried to get a drink at the bar. No staff to be seen so we gave up and went to bed. Had a terrrible night's sleep as the room was baking and there was no air conditioning. Uncomfortable bed.

Breakfast was a shambles. It took ages to get served and the vegetarian sausage was like something you'd get from Iceland I guess (don't shop there so wouldn't really know) but comprised diced carrots, sweetcorn and potatoes which had been rolled into a sausage shape and then deep fried. Revolting.

We were drawn to the hotel on a special offer, which we missed but did get a good discount on phoning. We had a scary drive due to an accident and diverted to end up on an approach on single track, narrow lane with few passing places.
The William and Mary House exceeded our expectations from the website and the setting is lovely. We can see why they excell on weddings . Our loft room had been beautifully done in a subtle modern style , if a little odd having a designer basin in the bedroom rather than bathroom.
The reception staff were excellent and needed to help the very young and inexperienced waiting staff in the restaurant . Luckily like the other customers in our dining room also saw the funny side of waiting over half an hour for the wine to go with the excellent food .
Overall we enjoyed our stay , but at full price we might have not been so amiable.

Fantastic setting in South Devon, Lovely rooms fantastic staff and fantastic food. This place is very remote and you do need a car and be prepared to navigate the very narrow and winding roads to get to the hotel. There are places to visit if you are prepared to drive, but if you just want to chill out and relax it's perfect. Very quiet and peaceful. We found the room very warm at night and asked if they had a fan which was delivered to the room immediately. The staff are very willing and helpful.

Room Tip: we were on the side of the hotel and it would be nice to overlook the grounds but the price we paid...

Spent 2days here in sept.This hotel far exceded our expectations. Location superb situated in the lovely Devon countryside yet lots of places within easy reach for lovely days out. Hotel is really well maintained and a building with real character. We had a room on the top floor which I was expecting to be much smaller than it actually was. We had a large bed that was so comfortable,sitting area with two chairs ,flat screen tv ,bath gowns ,lots of storage and a small window with breathtaking views. The food and service was excellent , the staff were very welcoming wish we could have stayed longer.
