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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Overnight stay with our dog in the cottage, staff were friendly welcoming, accommodation was clean and comfortable, the bathrooms were the cleanest I've seen. Food and service was great, dogs are allowed and welcomed in the pub side but not the breakfast room.

Still privately owned and carefully serving the local and tourist community. After some dreadful expensive meals in the south coast of Devon the meals here are great pub food. It is amazing how much happier it makes you after being so disappointed elsewhere. Very friendly staff and great traditional breakfast.

Being new to the area we found our way down Devon roads to Hartland Quay. What a dramatic place. We received a warm welcome from a charming lady and gentleman, in this lovely traditional pub. We only popped in for coffee and "enormous" flapjack, but enjoyed it all so much that we will return. We had an exhilarating walk around the point. What stunning views.

Stayed one night whilst walking the coast path. Received a warm welcome from Donal and all other staff members. Rooms were simple but spotlessly clean and shower/wi-fi all worked well. Had dinner in the Wreckers retreat which was great (bonus of plenty of veggie options to choose from). Would be delighted to stay here again.

Lovely stay at this atmospheric location. The hotel retains much character, no small wonder that it has been used for so many film and TV locations, and provides an excellent base to explore this rugged part of the North Devon coast. The Wreckers Retreat bar retains a harbour side pub feel and serves good ale and pub style food. The hotel itself offers comfortable, well appointed rooms and the breakfast as served in the dining room, was great. The service was throughly excellent, all staff attentive and very pleasant without being intrusive. The hotel management are clearly very experienced and this was reflected in the great stay we enjoyed,

On the plus side this is a truly stunning location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also good On the minus the food at the bar the evening before was pretty poor . This is a very special building in a unique place but in need of much investment.

Stayed at this hotel on 10/09 whilst walking the South West Coast Path. Pleasant, large room with a lovely big bath. We both had fish and chips in the bar and they were gorgeous and reasonably priced. Would recommend
