We wanted a fishing trip with accommodation and this fitted the bill. We had a special deal that included a 5 course tasting menu that was delicious and the breakfast next day was excellent. The breakfast choice was unbelievable, not just the standard but kippers and salmon with egg etc etc.
The fishing was OK but we didn't catch anything - not that it mattered it was 2 great days.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back as the road traffic starts quite early.

Beware! The quality of service at this Hotel sets a standard that will probably give an expectation that the next Hotel you stay at the service will be the same it probably will not be so therefore beware!

The reception staff, waiters, waitresses and even the night porter give a service that is delivered with a smile and genuine wish to make your stay perfect…

The Hotel it’s self at first looks a little run down but after a few hours the history and ambiance infect you and you start to feel that you are staying in a very comfortable country house with friends.

The food is superb I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants and the food served here it on par with all.

My wife and I stayed primarily for the fishing (which is superb), we have stayed at most of the prestigious sporting hotels in the UK but I have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel as the best sporting hotel in the UK …

When we stayed at this nicely situated hotel with a group of half a dozen friends we were impressed with the the service and the quality and presentation of the food - we had the tasting menu.
Our room was basic but clean and comfortable.
Adequate parking.
Would recommend it.

We originally stayed in 2013 but unfortunately we had to complain about another guest and the noise disturbance which ruined our stay. Our complaint was dealt with very quickly and we were offered a complimentary stay at a later date. We've just returned from our complimentary stay and this time it was a fantastic experience. Our room felt very luxurious, with views of the moor and a large ensuite. The service was fantastic and we had no problems with noise during the night. In fact we had the best nights sleep in a long time! The food was also very good. My husband also went fly fishing and I think this completed the experience. Their reputation for fishing instruction can not be faulted. We hope to return again next year.

Room Tip: The newly refurbished rooms in the hotel are fantastic. Room 17 has lovely views of the moor with a...

We returned to The Arundel Arms (my husbands having booked a special weekend for our wedding anniversary some years ago) with high hopes and sadly were let down by our room and the service. Sadly, we shall not be returning. The management of this hotel need to take a serious look at staffing and quality of service. And more especially the attention to detail in their rooms. To be frank, dust, mildew, and dirt were highly evident particularly in the bathroom. The door to
to the bathroom had dirty hand marks around the door handle which quite frankly looked like they had been there for quite some time. In a rural area like this you expect they laude that you can expect first class service but sadly the local staff ( who can be overbearing and condescending) especially when you do not see eye to eye, do not understand the expectations and quite frankly the service expected of this hotel.

We've stayed here before and were drawn back by a very good Sunday night offer. This included a 5 course tasting menu and an excellent breakfast. Dinner was not gourmet but very good with some excellent Brixham scallops complete with their lovely orange roes. (Why do some chefs take these off?).Our room was quiet and spacious with a view of the garden as well as Dartmoor hills. Lifton used to be on the main road to Cornwall but is now a quiet village famed for Ambrosia and as a stopping point on the Trafalgar Way. (The horseman taking the message of Nelson's victory to London from Falmouth!)
Noted for excellent local river fishing you can arrange lessons here if you fancy your hand. Close by is Lydford Gorge and the Cornish border but for a brief getaway the locals walks are all you need. We'll come again.

Room Tip: Avoid the front which will have some light traffic.

The hotel is lovely, beautifully furnished, like a gentleman's country house, beautiful secret gardens, great food and very pleasant staff. We stayed in the self contained Fishermans cottage which is attached to the hotel, very clean and well equipped, wish we'd had a longer stay. We were there for a family wedding which was also held at the hotel, highly recommend the venue for a wedding too, faultless.
