3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Hi Just a quick feed back, Staff excellent, apart from no heating in are room no 18 we had to use a fan heater not good for £110/night. Door had a 1/2 gap at the right hand side ,this needs sorting.
Bed good.
Dinner £85 bit over priced started dinner at 1.15pm finished 4.15. maybe its me but the soup came out in a expresso cup.

Dear Sharon and Rob, Thank you for leaving a review regarding your Christmas stay. I know that the underfloor heating is on permanently but in extreme conditions it is not as efficient so we do provide additional heat source. Our course lunch does take a bit of time to serve and I do apologize if this was too long for you. We had a great many compliments on Christmas Day and I believe that everyone else found this time acceptable. I would like to wish you both a very happy New Year and hope to see you again, it is wise to book early to get into the main hotel building. Regards, Claire

On one of the coldest nights of the year I arrived to a very pleasant welcome and a lovely snug and comfortable bedroom.
The rooms are modern and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in for a long time.
All staff I came into contact with were great but my only slight niggle (and believe me it is slight) was the sniffing and coughing waitress at breakfast.
I would recommend this hotel.

Thanks for your review regarding your stay and I do remember the night, very very cold. I am sorry about the waitress with a cold, I have brought this to the attention of all of the staff, some of them were quite shocked that a customer had noticed and had put it in a review, but this is all good for them to be aware. I am very pleased with the team here at the Hartnoll, but there will always be something for me to pull them up on!!! Best wishes for the new year. Claire

Fabulous welcome with a warm family atmosphere. The food was fantastic with loads of yummy choices locally sourced. The surrounding scenery was so beautiful.......we wished we had had more time for walking. There are plenty of local attractions including Knightshayes and the fabulous canal with horse drawn barges.......so picturesque. We will be back soon for another visit and will recommend you to all our friends. Thank you for helping to give me a birthday to remember!

This is a wonderful little gem in mid-devon. I was given a tour of the hotel by a friendly member
of staff, all the rooms are unique and have been thoughtfully designed. I have recommended to
several friends, no one has been disappointed. The staff are friendly without being overly
patronising, nothing is too much trouble.

Great food, beautifully served. A warm summers evening with a good glass of wine in this lovely
garden is a must.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are quiet with just the occasional hoot from a passing owl.

I stayed here on 14 September with my now husband, 2 friends and 7 year old daughter. We live about 10 miles away and got married at Tiverton registry office earlier that day. We did not want to travel and living in such a beautiful area we saw no need to. I spent months looking for somewhere that would meet our needs: contemporary but not citified, luxurious rooms, excellent food and a decent bar. We shared the hotel with a large party as there was a wedding on in the function room. We were assured that our small party of 5 would not be affected by this. We were not disappointed. The rooms were small but immaculate and the perfect blend of contemporary (the bathrooms) luxury (the Egyptian cotton sheets) and country (gun lockers!). The food was amazing - one of those rare meals in this country where every mouthful looked and tasted divine. However, the best part of the whole day was the attention to detail by the staff - particularly the waiter/Maitre D from Madeira who made our day the most special day that we will remember for a long time. He offered the kind of service that you rarely see in this country and he made us feel like we were the most important people in the hotel. I am not easily pleased but this hotel certainly ticked all the boxes. I am looking forward to spending my anniversarys here in years to come.

Room Tip: We were a bit hot in our room but we did not think to open the window until the morning. Our room ba...

Thank you very much for posting such a lovely review on our Tripadvisor site. I hope too that you will come back for your anniversaries in years to come and that the service will continue to meet your expectation and more. We are due to build more rooms shortly and then our planned spa, so this will be an added bonus for you. Bet wishes to you for a long and happy marriage. Claire
