On arrival the staff were very friendly and showed us to our room which was clean and well maintained. After settling in we went downstairs to the restaurant for a lunchtime meal which was excellent and the service could not be faulted. Breakfast the following day was superb and plenty of it. I will certainly use this hotel again if...

Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and cooked to order. However the bedroom was very snug, although it was clean, and the mattress was dreadful with a dip in the middle which did my back in - it needs a new mattress!

Thank you for your comments, all comments are helpful positive or negative. If you could give me a call and let me know what room you stayed in I can have a look at the mattress, nobody has mentioned anything on checkout. I look forward to hearing from you.

Calling by this lovely refreshing looking place on a Sunday lunchtime showed many people having what looked like a good meal or maybe just a drink. My wife and I were just looking for some refreshment but believe we were definitely stitched up. We ordered a pint of bitter and asked what lager they had. We were offered San Miguel...

I chose this accommodation online as we were attending a celebration lunch in Sidford but found the hotels there a little pricey for one night, and the Kings Arms was only £80 B&B for the two of us. Our room was immaculate and very clean, the bathroom had a heated floor and the bed was comfortable. The village itself is...

We parked in Budleigh and walked along the river in the glorious winter sun. Incredibly busy walk. Arrived at the pub and was told it was heavily booked for lunch but could squeeze us in for an hour prior to the table be required which was nice but as we had the dog suggested we sat outside even though it's...

Wow! are food looked absolutely fantastic as it was brought to our table but the saying all that glitters is not gold! Springs to mind! The food was cold! After complaining this was rectified very quickly by a very hot meal, unfortunately the steak turned from medium to well done! My husbands rare steak was very difficult to cut. Where...

First visit here and was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't sure what to expect. The pub has a nice interior - light and airy. Sunday roast was very nice - meat was delicious and tender. Only slight quibble would be that I thought the carvery was a little over priced - I think £10 is about right for a carvery.

Truly dog friendly accomodation, dogs are allowed in rooms and downstairs in the main bar area. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is of good quality. Have stayed here twice now and enjoyed each time.

Had lunch here while walking around the area. The pub had a homely atmosphere and the staff were friendly. The food that I had was good and flavourersum. Open all day which is good and every day. In a very good walking area.
