“Book for supper now!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2010

Wanted a good stopover near the coast in east Devon .
Did all the cross-ref. inc Michelin, Swallows Eaves had to be the best
bet. It lived up to all reports; it’s quiet, lays back off the main road in its own grounds with easy parking. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.
Our en suite ‘Superior twin’ - not enormous but very comfortable.
Its simple but tasty decor normally found for less than £140 pn. though.
The big surprise was its restaurant. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate
this place. Go out of your way before this truly gifted young chef moves on somewhere! The restaurant is called Reed’s.

Travelling with a friend to the town of Colyton to have a meal out on the recommendation of a friend. Simply the food was superb, the variety on the menu was very pleasing and all sounded fantastic. I think the pudding is the best I have ever had, white chocolate baked cheesecake. My friend and I will be going back but taking our other halves next time! We were advised that the menu is seasonal, locally sourced produce and always changing. My compliments to the chef.

Beautiful hotel superbly situated. Hosts very welcoming without being intrusive. The cleanliness of our room and the communal areas was excellent. Comfortable bed with quality bedlinen - the best pillows ever! The dining room has been refurbished to a high standard and breakfast was superb- quality produce locally sourced - no complaints at all! and I am not very easlily pleased when it comes to hotel standards - ask my husband!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2009

We had a couple of nights there and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owner was charming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We got there and was greeted by name (it does make a difference!)

The food was great, they have a new chef and have recently launched the restaurant to "the public" instead of just staying guests. It's not a big restaurant and managed to get the balance between good service and leaving us to enjoy our meal.

We'll definately be going again
