Bed comfy and room spacious. Breakfast warm and plentiful. Service good until had no hot water which never got fixed properly and bottled beers served out of date even after mentioning. Suggest improved signage to find hotel car park for people travelling in dark. Had booked for whole of December but have chosen to look elsewhere for future stats.

Hotel's Favourite
The room was incredible - for a family room (which are normally tiny) it felt really spacious and the beds were very comfortable, very clean throughout. The bathroom was big, roomy and spotless. Very peaceful area, tiny little back roads lead to the hotel with great views. Staff were very helpful and kind, we were made to feel very welcome. I would highly recommend. It was incredibly hot and a fan was provided in the room. They were on limited staff due to Covid, we had breakfast there for both mornings and it would have been nice to see some variety on the breakfast menu - although we did ask for something 'off menu' and it was provided with no issue. We pay, on average, £110 per night for a family room in most hotels, this cost us £136 for two nights! Brilliant price, very beautiful setting, would highly recommend.

Room Tip: I don't think there was a lift and we were on the second floor - plenty of stairs!

Be careful if following sat nav - mine tried to take me down a rough track to a farmyard! Friendly staff at all times. I was upgraded to a lovely looking exec room. Sunday dinner was a superb roast beef meal, other meals also very nice. Breakfast fairly basic but ok. My stay was spoilt however by problems with lack of hot water which I reported on the first morning to no avail.. At times the cold tap water was warmer than the hot tap so I had 3 completely cold showers and one almost warm shower. It seemed the water was warmer later in the morning but by evening it was cold again (Note this is just in room 21 I believe) I used the hotel as a base for touring and exploring Dartmoor so it was in a good position for this

We stayed in a Deluxe Room (Room 6). The room itself was fantastic, big TV, huge bathtub and walk in shower and very comfy bed. I would definitely recommend this room to anyone staying here. My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights as a “staycation”. Had a few walk trails in mind and wanted to get away from home. My partner and I both agree (as stated in a lot of reviews) that the hotel itself seems very outdated and in need of restoration. The staff as a whole were welcoming and friendly, except for the bloke we had checked in with who had very little to say or to offer in terms of helping. Our room was on the 1st floor, which involved walking up stairs and through a variety of doorways to reach our room. For a couple in their 20’s, this wasn’t so much of an issue, but I can definitely sympathise for the more elderly generation. One thing that immediately became apparent, is that not all “touch surfaces” were being cleaned frequently. I’m sure this was probably a mishap on the hotels behalf and possibly a one-off situation, but in the current pandemic, you can’t be too careful and definitely would have put us at ease. The breakfast was included in the price, but I will say that we only took breakfast for 1 of 3 days of our stay as we were quite disappointed with the breakfast. Lacking in quantity of food and overall wasn’t a pleasant experience. We skipped breakfast the second day and found a lovely little breakfast place in Exeter on the final day, called “Brody’s Breakfast Bistro”. Would definitely recommend this place, especially if you have a big appetite. We were also woken up on numerous occasions in the middle of the night/morning throughout the duration of our stay by the dogs that were staying in the next room over from us. This of course isn’t the hotels fault and is definitely something that should’ve been addressed by the owners of the dogs. My partner and I have dogs, and have no issues with them. But when paying for one of the top rooms in the hotel, you would definitely be slightly agitated if you was woken up throughout the evening by dogs barking, especially with the walls being so thin, it sounds like they’re in the room with you. A few “gotchas” for you: - Bring some additional soap, shampoo etc. The hotel provide a couple of tiny bottles of subpar products. I ended up driving to the nearest supermarket and buying some products, which was a real shame. - Definitely take other reviewers advise and try to take the route via Ide village. - If you get a chance, try out the Huntsman Inn Pub in Ide. One of the nicest pubs I’ve visited in a long time. - Try and visit Canonteign Falls if you’re looking for a great walking spot. £8(something) per adult for a great experience. Overall, good trip, beautiful sights and views, lovely room (as I would’ve expected for the price), but definitely some bits that need addressing in the hotel. I wouldn’t return here out of choice.

Off the beaten track down narrow lanes so lovely and quiet. Long walk up hill to reception from the carpark so if you have breathing problems can be tricky. Friendly staff, comfy bed, great breakfast didn't have dinner
