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.

I am writing this review in the hope that it reaches ANYONE who is thinking of staying here. DON’T DO IT! This hotel is FLITHY, with stains on the bedding, the sofa chairs and the carpets looked washed out & worst for wear, along with dated furniture and ash trays on the verandas!! There was a strong awful smell of rotten cabbage throughout the whole hotel. Cheap leather sofas that adorned every inch of the lobby, bar and corridors. All of which, especially the white ones were worn, scratched and filthy. Furniture and decorations were cheap and tacky. ALL IN ALL……. Mutton dressed up as Lamb! It’s the WORST hotel I have ever seen in the UK that apparently has 4 stars, And trust me, I have seen a LOT of hotels in my time. The real question that really bugs me is…..How on Earth did this mutton get 4 stars??? It is beyond me, something clearly isn’t right in Barnstable. Exeter is only 43 miles away, and can be reached under an hour! You have a vast choice of hotels where you will feel a LOT more comfortable and it will be worth those extra few miles, TRUST ME! Barnstable hotels are old, musty, filthy and very cheap and pre dated in decor. OH and before you say anything Hotel Manager in reply to MY opinion and experience, discrediting and devaluing your customers opinions and experiences doesn’t read well to others and it certainly doesn’t look good either. Sup it up!….. IMPROVE and move forward.

Thank you for posting your review. You ask how we are rated 4*, the answer to this is as follows; the hotel is inspected annually by the AA, in a secret shopper scenario, against a wide range of criteria and standards. We have been awarded 4 stars every year since our refurbishment in 2016. The AA is world renowned for its inspection and rating of hotels, and I am very pleased that they have also awarded us a Rosette for the quality of the food and service in our Brasserie. Tripadvisor and other review sites are an excellent way of receiving feedback from guests, but the only way of judging a property properly on such sites, is to look at the general weight of opinion. Of just over 1600 reviews, 90% rate us as excellent, or very good, and whilst this is no reason to rest on our oars, it does indicate a very high level of satisfaction, something that we are very proud of. We are genuinely sorry when a customers experience of our hotel is so at odds to the normal, and would ask that such exceptions be looked at with an open mind.

We have just returned from a really lovely few days at The Park Hotel. The hotel is tastefully decorated and furnished throughout in a contemporary manner and every aspect of this hotel is of the highest standard. The food at breakfast was of the highest standard and was beautifully presented and the steaks at dinner were prepared just as you asked but all of the food was great. The staff were courteous and friendly and everyone we encountered took the time to make you feel a valued customer. The room (ours overlooked the park) was immaculate and the bathroom cleaned perfectly every day with fresh towels. Only a few minutes walk in to town and opposite a lovely park bordering the river. We could not fault this hotel and will definitely return (Part of the Brand Group of hotels).

An incredibly friendly, welcoming and comfortable hotel. And a Chef who should be entered for Master Chef! Simply exquisite food. Excellent staff, who go out of their way to make it an enjoyable stay and pay real attention to your needs. Very comfortable room, which provided a great night's sleep.

The Park Hotel has a great location near to the centre of Barnstaple but on a very quiet road opposite to a park and the river. The rooms are comfortable and the food in the restaurant is of high quality. The staff are well trained and most obliging. It is an ideal location for visiting the various attractions of the North Devon Coast.

Hotel was lovely but bad experience with our meal which we had to return and were told we would not be charged but we were and needed to request its removal next day. At breakfast we noticed that the seating benches had food crumbs all over them presumably from the previous evening

Steve the manager and the rest of the team produced an amazing experience for our wedding breakfast. The service and the taster menu was second to none. No one in our area can match the Brend Hotels in my opinion. They are a different level. Thank you again Park Hotel for making our small wedding gathering special.
