Stayed here for 1 night as on business in the area. The main part of the hotel is fine and the Leisure centre and swimming pool are very good. My room was outside of the main building, near the outside swimming pool. It was very reminiscent of a 1960s motel. I was very nervous as a woman alone that the...

The hotel rooms are alright, but it's the pool and the breakfast that are worth staying at The Barnstaple Hotel for. I also found out on my most recent trip that the food available at the bar is rather quite tasty. I had a main and starter, both of which ticked the box. The pear, raspberry and chocolate crumble with...

Fantastic value for money - accommodation very comfortable and food / service 5 * for the price we paid. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff especially in the dining room.. Bathroom perhaps a little 'tired' but nothing to complain about. Surrounding area great to explore . Would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for a lovely break!.

This hotel really opens your door to Barnstaple. It's got an indoor heated and outdoor pool with a sizeable gym. Big rooms and a bed that really helps you get to sleep. Breakfast is definitely worth the early alarm. Overall a very good place to stay for business or pleasure.
