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.

I came across this hotel as I needed to charge my car, I was a little panicked as the garage I had been sent to no longer had a charging station and I was running low. The Arundel has a bank of Tesla charges which I wasn’t sure how to use, I went in and asked for help and was greeted by the kindest lady at reception, she took me through the steps and was so calm and helpful. I stayed in the hotel while my car charged and what a lovely place! The food smelt great and it so beautifully decorated, I will definitely be back but this time as an overnight guest. Thank you so so much for the help and fantastic service!

Hotel's Favourite
Last time I went to Devon it also rained all the time and I ended up having my feet nibbled by fish to escape the rain. This time, staying at the Arundell I was delighted to curl up with a book by a log fire in the lounge. The beds and pillows were 5 star comfortable. Food lovely. Ambience superb. Big shout out to our breakfast angels - Tina and Mary - and to Jess on reception. A very well managed, comfortable hotel. Ruby the Labrador thought she had died and gone to heaven.

What a wonderful hotel. The staff were friendly, the room was lovely, the food was superb - it's hard to fault it. It's definitely aimed at the hunting & shooting fraternity but, although that's not our bag, we were made to feel most welcome. After a long drive down the motorway, The Arundell Arms provided us with a very calming, comfortable overnight stay. If we're back in that neck of the woods in the near future we'll certainly stay at the Arundell, and if we're anywhere nearby, we'll probably go out of our way in order to stay there again. Highly recommended.

Last weekend we took over the whole hotel to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday and what a weekend. Living locally but with friends coming from near and far we had dinner for 18 on Friday evening. Then buffet and party for 60 on Saturday. The Arundel did us proud, exceeded our expectations at every turn, I cannot praise Arabella and her team highly enough. Food was truly exquisite, service impeccable and the hotel its self delightful. Jackie and Luke worked their socks off catering for our every need. Thank you to every one of you for making Kathryn’s birthday weekend so so special. We will definitely be back very soon.

Lovely little hotel. We were travelling with two dogs who were made very welcome. Dinner in the bar was superb as was breakfast the next morning. All the staff we met were charming and so helpful. I was initially shocked that there was no TV in the room but it was surprisingly restful.

Superb Restaurant. Great food. Great service. Well worth a visit. Price wise a bit on the high side but worth every penny. We went for a late Christmas party. Small group. They have a huge whisky menu that’s worth looking at as they have some top notch ones on there.

If you have not been yet you must! I work in hospitality and know what it takes to make a business work and what goes on. Simon, Arabella and the whole team just go that extra distance to make you feel so welcome. The service, rooms, food etc is just outstanding. Ash the head chef and his team do all they can to accommodate requests and Luke the young sommelier has a great passion for his job. We were a group of 8 staying there whilst participating in field sports sourced by the Hotel. They provided lunch in the field and a top days sport. We have been three times now in the last year and have already booked up repeat trips for the year ahead its that good.

First time ever in a hotel for Christmas. Would highly recommend it! From the beginning, communication with Jess and the staff was first class. Nothing was too much trouble - a theme that was repeated numerous times during our stay. The dog was as welcome as we were. Food was delicious and well served, the hotel looked lovely in its Christmas finery and the rooms were clean and comfortable, with plenty of sockets, mirrors etc. Bathroom was always immaculate. I don’t know where the pillows came from, but they were fluffy and gorgeous. You just disappeared into them. Husband looked as if he’d been eaten by a giant marshmallow. Despite dreadful weather, still managed some fly fishing and was visited by an extremely nice and enthusiastic ghillie. Lovely touches included a gift on CD, handwritten card on dining table and small boxes of chocolates each. Loved every minute of it - thank you Arundel Arms.

Loved coming back here. Food as before was really really good, the whole place is so welcoming and the staff are lovely. The fire was going which is even more special in the winter. We will definitely come back!
