We took advantage of a KGB Deal for a three night stay in October. It was not an area we had been to before and the hotel itself was also a new experience. The place, and the staff made you feel completely at home. From reception, bar and cleaning personnel. It was so relaxing and even the guests were chatting with each other. The fact that you could take dogs made it great for getting to know your fellow travellers. There was a lady travelling with her son and it seemed they got to know everyone and they, as we did, felt extremely comfortable. There were a few families there too and you could tell each generation was quite at home. We had dinner the first night which was superb and their beef and the ham sandwiches were wonderful for lunch. We took advantage of the nice seating areas in the bar for reading our books etc. The train station is no more than a 5 minute walk which will take you to Barnstaple one way and as far as Exeter the other. We took advantage if this and went to Barnstaple and the scenery was lovely on-route. There are several local pubs to choose from too, one evening we went to The Red Lion in Chulmleigh which was very good. Our room was a very good size, as was the lovely modern bathroom. If you want a quiet, relaxing and friendly hotel, with superb food and walks then this hotel is highly recommended.
