What more could you want for the perfect Christmas, beautiful surroundings, exceptional food and staff who are friendly, helpful and a credit to the owners. Throw in a sprinkling of Spa Treatments, relaxing by the pool and walks in the countryside, even the weather was kind this year. But above all and most women will agree with me on this,...

Had a one night stay with friends. Good spa and pool facilities, although pool could have been warmer. Comprehensive breakfast choices cooked fresh. Nice general environment and friendly staff. Let down slightly in our view by tired but still comfortable bedroom and somewhat dated bathroom.

We enjoyed a marvellous one night stay with our South West Holiday Parks team. Spa tranquil and treatments excellent. Bar staff lovely. Room 20 beautiful views! Try the breakfast granola, delicious. Warm, cosy lounge areas to sit and read mags/drink coffee were a real treat. Laid back atmosphere with homes and gardens style interior feel. Highly recommended.

The hotel is so well decorated, it felt so warm and relaxing as soon as we walked through the doors greeted with two open fires which just adds to the ambience of this gem of a hotel.. Our room...

Just returned from an overnight stay and we took a dog with us. Dog friendly. Good welcome dog pack. Highlight was the spa. Very very nice!! Stayed in the hydro pool for a long time. The complimentary robes were a welcome touch, just a little raggedy though. There are flip flops provided within the spa itself. Dinner in the restaurant...

We could not fault the hotel for its excellent help in organising a family festive meal and then dealing with a little problem on the day itself. There was no hassle in choosing items from two of the festive menus plus food for three children. The menus themselves were full of interesting and tasty choices. On the day itself we...

We had a great couple of days at Ilsington, relaxing in the spa and enjoying the countryside. The hotel is beautifully located on the edge of the village and overlooking Dartmoor itself. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the food good. We enjoyed the pool and spa especially. The only downside are the bedrooms/bathrooms, which although spacious and comfortable are...

Dear Gareth H, Thank you for taking the time to review Ilsington and we are delighted you had such an enjoyable time. The bedrooms and bathrooms do vary within the hotel and some, naturally older than others.
