We decided to have a over night stay in Barnstaple. So the hotel was a late booking through booking.com. It was a late deal. The parking for the hotel is fairly well displayed as the sat nav trys to take you out the front but it is a pedestrian way. The hotel is right in the centre of Barnstaple. So...

Picked this hotel because of location, price and reviews. For the price of a travel lodge this hotel is a very classy choice. Parking a bit awkward but staff will help with that problem. Ate in the restaurant and was really pleased, good menu, excellent food and great price. Central location great but means a bit of noise but don't...

Easy to find at the top of the high street, just a short stroll from the station. Ideal central position, very helpful staff. Restaurant food very good and excellent value (imho). Large double room very comfortable (busy side alley outside, but it's a town centre location so we expect some late night whooping and hollering). Excellent powerful shower and v...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a weekend break. We could not fault the hotel nor its staff and their attentiveness and the levels of service generally. Our standard en suite room was cosy but very clean and well presented. Dinner at £20 per person for 3 courses with coffee was very good value. The only mater...
