The Royal and Fortescue Hotel proved ideal for a break away. Being in the centre of Barnstaple we were able to walk straight out to explore the shops, riverside and antique centre. It was lovely to then be able to return to the hotel for a delicious meal and a good nights sleep.

I can`t remember either but the staff are most obliging and if you ask I am sure they will help. It states on their website that they want everyone to thoroughly enjoy their stay and they are only too happy to provide anything you might need -just ask Reservation staff and they will have it ready for when you arrive.
