A group of 4 stayed here for 1 night in Oct. This is a fabulous spot over looking the Devon Countryside. Rooms were very clean warm and roomy although the soundproofing could do with improving, we could here our neighbours very move upstairs. Restaurant food was 1st class every course was very tastety and well served from this classy restaurant.

Appalled to be forced to enter the premises via the busy kitchen. Very embarrassing and very off putting as kitchen wasn't particularly clean nor smelt good. I would have thought that a place like this would not need to use the busy kitchen as access to the rest of the hotel. Not recommended if you are in a wheelchair!

Another wonderful lunch. We were unable to stay this time! I took four special people and we were once again treated to a perfect meal. My guests were very pleased with the service, brilliant food, the views and the whole experience at The Horn of Plenty. This really is a special place. Congratulation to everyone at the Horn.
