I came here with some friends for a birthday lunch in the summer, the food was divine, the staff attentive and the environment was inviting. We loved it so much we have returned many times for dinner and stayed over. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms luxurious and if you like a long hot soak then you will love the deep roll top baths.
Thomas Carr has to be my favourite chef of all time! His food is sublime! That is saying something!
I can't get enough of Kentisbury Grange! It's the place I go to for relaxation, indulgence and a rest from the real world. I turn off my phone and just be.
I promise anyone reading this, if you go you will love every second of being there.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled with friends

Kentisbury Grange is a breath of fresh air in every sense of the phrase. In the middle of beautiful Devon, it offers excellent accommodation in combination with a refreshing restaurant of taste. The service and politeness of the staff ensured my Special Birthday went off well.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view but the ones on the front of the main building are beautiful.

During half term holidays we like to explore new places. Kentisbury Grange was not only new to us but still in its infancy as a hotel. To our surprise the teething problems you would normally expect in a new business simply did not exist - we had a good look around the main hotel which has so tastefully been decorated but on this occasion as a family of 5, we stayed in one of the very contemporary lodges in the grounds. Again, beautifully fitted out (someone with great style and vision has had a strong influence here), but a particular highlight for my children was the flat screen tv in the bathroom or was it the mood changing lighting or perhaps the amazing hot tub on the deck, even in gale force winds!! The Coach House offers fine dining but welcoming for the little ones too. We shall definitely return and look forward to the warm welcome that awaits.

The room was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom sumputous. Lovely to have Molton Brown toiletries and underfloor heating. Adequate mini bar, would have liked to have had a slightly wider selection of wine, one bottle of Chardonnay was your lot! It would have been nicer to see milk in a jug for your coffee and tea and a nice touch would have been some home made biscuits, but other than these few very minor niggles this hotel is top class. The staff are quietly attentive and delightful. We ate in the Coach House, wow the food was amazing!!! Would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, but the higher floors have better views.

We have eaten at the Coach House many times now but we were really looking forward to this special occasion stay at the Hotel, with some special friends. Well, 9 of stayed this weekend with high expectations and it didn't disappoint. We had been shown the rooms before so knew it was going to be a real treat and we did book the best suites. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the bed was so comfortable, really, with its lovely soft and cosy bedding, it was hard to get up. Fantastic is the word which described our bathroom, I loved the roll top bath and there was the bonus of a large walk in shower as well ! spoilt indeed. The staff couldn't have done more to make our stay a good one. The setting is peaceful with stunning scenery and the location great for getting around. Exmoor is right there, we chose to head for the beach and within a few miles you are spoilt for choice, we settled on Woolacombe, a fantastic beach what ever the weather. A cream tea in the lounge went down a treat after the wet and windy walk. This was a nice experience and the food was great, we will return again many times I hope.

Room Tip: We had room 5 on the first floor. Its large and bright with double aspect and 3 windows, facing south and west, great for the sunset.
