I stumbled across this hotel completely by accident and I'm so glad I did. It's in the middle of an extensive (but unobtrusive) refurbishment and we were lucky enough to have one of the newly refurbished rooms. All mellow browns and greens - wonderful! Actually got a good night's sleep in the lovely comfy bed, too, which is always a bonus! The hotel was clean, the staff were extremely helpful and polite. We ate in the newly opened a la carte Wildflower Restaurant (there is also a bar serving bar meals and the option of room service). The food was first class - the pork dish was worthy of a top class restaurant anywhere (and we'd had lunch at the 2 Michelin star Gidleigh Park earlier in the day!). Breakfast was also good, with a wide selection of cereals, fresh fruit, rolls, croissants and a full English, all done buffet-style. Honestly, it's not stuck in a time warp any more (as stated elsewhere on TA); it's a brilliant location, excellent food and friendly, helpful staff. There's a large car park, good access for the disabled and wonderful gardens. All right on the edge of either Dartmoor in one direction or the dizzy city lights of Plymouth in the other. This hotel would suit people of all ages - pensioners, couples or families. We were so impressed we've already booked to go back for a longer holiday later in the year with three different generations in tow. Ten out of ten!
