Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We chose Endsleigh to spend our Ruby wedding anniversary and we loved every minute of our stay. The hotel was a little bit different to what we expected but in a very good way; it is an amazingly historical building with much of the original paintwork and decoration still in place so it doesn't have that restored country house feel, just a lovely original country house feel. But of course there were the more up to date twists of lovely squashy sofas and chairs, hundreds of tea lights in the evening and lovely low lighting. It is so good to stay in a characterful hotel that is not bathed in horrible bright light in the public areas.

When we booked way back in May we had a choice of rooms and booked Bedford Room 8 which was delightful with views down the garden, and still with the original hand painted wallpaper. We loved the bathroom - an old washbasin and bath with shower over, well used but with brilliant up to date plumbing and a great atmosphere for a good soak before dinner. My only niggle with the room was that some slightly brighter task lighting would be welcome for reading in the lovely comfy chairs!

Now for the food! We really do feel that dinner on all three nights was of an exceptional quality and probably some of the best food we have experienced. I know that is high praise indeed but we loved it. We were on a dinner inclusive rate but the rate of £52.50 for three courses has to be a real bargain - I just wish we lived a little bit closer so we could eat there even more! Breakfast was excellent as well, a great range of options all of a great quality.

We actually spent the whole three days at the hotel; we didn't even move the car. The grounds are beautiful, wellington boots available, log fires abounding and loads of books to read - what more could you want? We walked to the excellent nursery and stocked up with plants we collected when we left.

A lovely celebratory stay and we are looking forward to returning. A real gem of a hotel with really helpful, welcoming staff.

My wife and I had a one night stop over here, whilst on our way to Cornwall. We arrived around 3.30pm and we’re made very welcome by the attentive staff and then shown to our wonderful room (Room 3), a spacious bedroom, large bathroom and separate shower room. The room benefits from lovely views over the gardens and the river in the valley below.
We had afternoon tea on the terrace and then went for a walk in the extensive gardens and along the river. This was followed by pre-dinner drinks on the terrace and then a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. At all times, we found the staff attentive, friendly and efficient, the service was really 10/10.
This is not an inexpensive place to stay. We paid almost £600 for our package of a room, breakfast and dinner plus a shared afternoon tea and our evening drinks. But we felt it was worth it and would certainly return.
If you like traditional period house charm in very peaceful deep Devon countryside with great food and wine, look no further.

As part of our wedding anniversary celebration we incorporated a one night stay at Hotel Endsleigh I booked in June possibly taking a risk with Covid -19.Glad I took the risk it paid off and was well worth it.
Afternoon tea overlooking the gardens and grounds lovely on the eye, so quiet no cars,planes or children. The grounds were well maintained and with a leaflet made it more interesting to go find various types of tree,a good 1hr -1hr 30mins walk in total.
Got back to the house to find other guests reserving their tables for dinner the table for afternoon tea already taken made us consider another terrace location the one one with a water feature ...Fantastic due to Covid -19 we had it ourselves as the evening light faded we were able to listen to owls and watch the moon come out. The food, location and service were perfect having that terrace to youself felt you owned the place.
I certainly would not hesitate to book again ,you have to go there to appreciate the whole experience

Essentially a very pretty period hotel with stunning landscaped gardens sitting in its own grounds next to the river Tamar. On arrival we thought more could be done with the entrance area as first impressions arriving at the the Hotel were of the back of the house and car park - the reception area is also in a strange location/corridor all a bit scruffy. However, we were warmly welcomed and everybody we met working at this hotel was Uber professional and customer service was excellent. This created a really lovely friendly atmosphere throughout.
Bedrooms are all individually designed and you can request the room you want. The room we were allocated (no. 14) had a small double bed which didn’t suit us but unfortunately other rooms were all taken - it was also at the top of the house and very stuffy. Bathroom is very small and paintwork needed touching up. We wouldn’t have wanted to stay for more than one night in this room. On the plus side: the room had lovely bedding, soft furnishings, and view of the garden.
The best bit for us was the wonderful food and evening experience - we were lucky to sit outside with a patio heater in the magical garden setting. Perfect! Lovely attentive service all night and some of the best food we’ve had in a long time. The meal was a 5 star experience! Can definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel is reached by driving through the small country lanes north of Dartmoor. Then there is a mile long private driveway lined by flowering spring plants before you reach the courtyard in front of the main entrance with 5 free electric car chargers. Clearly catering for the London set. The building itself is a grand country house that still retains this character. It is situated high up but still well protected by the sides of a valley with outstanding views to the river Tamar within a short walk where there are hotel fishing right. You cannot see anything but countryside and woods from the hotel. Indeed sitting in the evening sun outside is one of the best views from a hotel that I can remember. The reception is low key and all the staff polite. Decor is Edwardian country house style with most ground floor rooms preserved presumably due to the Grade 1 heritage listing. This means that there is no single dining room but there is a cosy lounge with open fires and numerous candles in the evening. Very comfortable. The place has a feeling of tired cleanliness. Well behaved and manicured dogs abound. Our room overlooked the front courtyard and was quiet with a reasonably sized bath/shower room. The bed was huge and, with arm chairs, it was a pleasant place to relax. The wifi signal was poor to non existent and, coupled with our zero mobile coverage, this was a problem. Dinner is a fixed price 3 course menu at around £67 plus service and any supplements. The service was good but many of the dishes were too elaborate and over engineered. For instance scallops as a main (always difficult) was drowned in bacon masking their normal exquisite taste. Chicken liver parfait was too creamy and dressed with many vegetables. However the duck breast was excellent and perfectly cooked as was crab ravioli in a beautiful sauce. There was an adequate but not vast choice on the menu but after 2 dinners you may have difficulty choosing something different. With drinks on the terrace and wine with dinner the meal would be over £100 each. Breakfast was included in the room rate and this was exceptional, again sitting outside, with local produce served. A highlight of the hotel is the gardens and river walk. Certainly the Garden Walk should not be missed with sub-tropical type plants, numerous waterfalls and ponds all carefully tended. Overall Hotel Endsleigh is for a relaxing break and rest and best for short stays in a unique environment. The internet service needs to be addressed and the evening dinner menu reviewed especially given the eye watering cost of a stay there. It should really merit 5 stars but everything needs to be perfect for the top accolade.

Other guests will amply laud the position environment food and staff.
How are places handling Covid 19 is probably more relevant just now.
The Endsleigh is fortunate to have plenty of guest and dining space much of which can be extended weather permitting.
The staff wear visors which guests soon get used to.
The general ambience is comfortable and the guests can enjoy relaxing.
Highly recommended

We had an amazing 3 night stay at this gorgeous property in West Devon. The setting is just incredible and their garden and grounds are stunning. It is very tranquil and peaceful with a wonderful vista.

It is refined and smart without being stuffy. The service is professional, friendly and exemplary.

Our room was country house chic; not large as we were up in the eves on the second floor but it was a dog friendly room. The bathroom was perfect. A lovely comfortable dog bed was supplied which our dog really enjoyed.

They do not allow dogs in the restaurant which is fine so we enjoyed meals on their covered terrace with heaters as the weather sadly was not great.

We had dinner each night included in our rate with a three course menu with a limited amount of choices which you can order in advance. The only slight minus was the food whereby just a few of the dishes were slightly underwhelming; good but not great. The wine list is interesting.

The hotel is very well situated for surrounding National Trust properties and it is not far from the pretty town of Tavistock.

A really special place for a luxury break.

Endsleigh is totally charming, quite unique and highly recommended. We visited for the first time last October and loved the experience, with the wood fires, and cosy, homely and very comfortable, cosseting interior. We were keen however to make a repeat visit in mid summer when the amazing herbaceous border is possibly at its best and to have the opportunity to eat meals outside in that stunning setting. We had such a special time.
On our first stay we paid for an upgrade to one of the two Bedford rooms, room 5, overlooking the gardens. A beautiful room, with original hand painted wallpaper and a glorious view. It felt slightly knocked around the edges however and needed a bit of re fresh. Faded grandeur, but all very charming. This time we stayed in a “classic”, lead in room, in the main house, room 6, which looked beautiful in the photos online. A brilliant choice! Possibly the largest of the classic rooms, really a good size, more recently touched up/ re decorated we felt than the Bedford room, and with lots of storage space. It overlooked the stables and the car park area ( hardly large!), but that did not pose a problem and due to the season, we spent most of the time either outside in the gardens or downstairs in the public rooms.
We had a quite delicious breakfast sat on the lawn, with the most amazing views, and a sublime dinner outside on the terrace, watching the sky turn pink and listening to the owls hooting. Excellent value we thought too given the quality of the three courses, for £55 pp.
The opportunity to stroll around the beautiful gardens and grounds is a real highlight of the whole Endsleigh experience. It is in such a beautiful location, and oozes charm. Quirky, understated Polizzi elegance, characterful paintings, artefacts, books and gorgeous displays of fresh flowers. Nothing remotely corporate and it is really like staying in a home, with a weekend country house party feel.
The staff make it even more special, all taking a very genuine interest in you and just not being able to do enough for guests. Particular praise to Jonathan, who went out of his way to accommodate our request to have an outside terrace table for dinner and who was a delight to talk to.
As part of the same holiday we also stayed at the sister property in St Mawes, the Tresanton. Another beautiful hotel, but the staff really did not engage with us in the same manner, the service was slow, on occasions, and the dinner not of the same high calibre as at the Endsleigh. We would most definitely love to return again to the latter, but choose your room with care if you like one to be reasonably soaciius. Some of the attic rooms are quite small, according to some fellow guests we spoke to, but you get an excellent idea of each room on the website.

Stayed 4 nights, ate in the restaurant on two nights and have to say this was the best experience. The level of service is exceptional in a classy and understated way, your room is made up while you are at breakfast, fresh coffee and tea is delivered to your room on request foc, nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent, tasty, well presented and the ambience with the open fires and lounges very relaxing. The setting is beautiful and room (Suite 2) was stunning and spacious. Highly Recommended and worth the 5 hour drive.

We arrived just before Christmas and were greeted by the porter who showed us a delightful room upstairs in the main building overlooking the salmon larder. Sadly there was a problem with a lack of hot water so we were soon shown to alternative accommodation in the courtyard opposite the main building with lashings of hot beautiful water. Who would not love the suite we were shown?

The meal was a thrill to our taste buds and although venison would not have been a meat of choice, it was delightful. Everything was a wonderful and a pleasure... All credit to the chefs. All the staff were excellent and everything was managed so that social distancing was observed. The breakfast was wonderful and it was really good to admire the gardens in the rain... Having been so disappointed earlier in the year not to be able to celebrate a birthday here, this more than made up for it.
