“Excellent hotel - highly recommended”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

We stayed a night at this hotel (my husband a few nights on business) and were absolutely thrilled - the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the decor is fantastic, the rooms a good size and dceorated to a very high standard and the general feel is very relaxed. We only had breakfast but that was delicious.

Would highly recommend and definately hope to go back again!

Thanks Clare and all your staff!

The Hartnoll Hotel a tasteful 16-room hotel with a boutiquey feel, friendly and helpful staff and a very beautiful setting in mid-Devon. There's also a very cute and funny little Dachshund in residence who pretty much has the run of the public areas of the hotel - which made me like the attitude of the owner and staff even more.

We were originally booked for room 5 but as my partner and I were checking in, the owner gave us room 6, saying it was slightly bigger in size and we'd probably appreciate the wet room. Why would anyone say no to more space and a great shower? It was fantastic. The view from our windows overlooked a stream (or was it a brook or a creek?) at the back of the hotel, green fields and gently undulating hills - the stuff that makes Devon so gorgeous and, well, so Devonian.

I've heard some fairly bad things about the restaurant from reviews on Tripadvisor and a friend who is a local in the area that ate at the restaurant over a year ago, but I can't find any reason to complain about the two meals my partner and I had there. Service was excellent on a late Sunday evening for dinner and Monday morning for breakfast and the food was tasty, well-prepared and plated attractively.

There weren't a lot of guests the night we stayed. We'd just missed a big wedding party over the weekend, so things were quiet, which was fine by me. All the better to enjoy the richness of the scenery at dusk.

All in all, I enjoyed our stay at the Hartnoll Hotel immensely. I wish we could have stayed just a little bit longer. All right, if I'm honest, I'd be very content to move into room 6 (or maybe a suite next time) for a lengthy stay. The owner said that in a year or two, she was hoping to have a spa area up and running. Fingers crossed we'll be back before and after the spa opens.

After seeing a lovely advert for this hotel/restaurant, my family and I decided to take a Bank Holiday trip out and stop off for lunch. We seated ourselves in the conservatory and proceded to order our lunch. Once this arrived we started to "tuck in", 2 of my group had a chicken salad and the others had a salad garnish as part of there main course. The only way i can describe the salad is "CRAWLING" with green fly and bugs - it was INEDIABLE and had not been washed - we notified the friendly waitress who quickly took our plates and brought the menus back for us to re order. We had decided to have a starter rather than a main meal, with no salad. And what a joke that was, we had pate with one tiny peice of bread smaller than the size of the pate. We asked for more bread and 3 more tiny peices were brought out, all i can think is that the Chef was taking the mickey after us returning our food. Not once did "The manager/owner" appear to offer her appologies or offer a complimentary glass of wine while we waited for our food to come back out. Our bill was not adjusted to reflect any of the problems we had and when we questioned this they removed a portion of chips and a portion of onion rings from the overall bill price!! The Manager/owner is totally lacking in people skills and could have taken the time to speak with us and rectify the mistake. In not taking the time to do this she has lost custom. We certainly would not reccomed lunch. I fully appriciate that the majority of reviews are for hotel stays at this establishment obviously the Managment are more interested in Hotel guests rather than people looking to lunch.
