“Fab Hotel with Great Food”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Lovely Inn, super rooms with lovely bathrooms which included a bath which was great.
Eat in the restaurant, the food was the best I have had in a long time, the service was second to non. Also stayed for breakfast and again could not fault it. Will stay here again.

I found the newly refurbished rooms in the annex very comfortable, and the bathroom was fantastic (honestly, it's a very swish bathroom!).The room was a bit dark and would have benefitted from a large central light, but otherwise it was clean and comfy.

The restaurant was good (I've had better and I've certainly had considerably worse!).

Staff were a little slow/difficult to find, but when you found them they were helpful and very polite.

Just came back from a couple of nights at the Globe in topsham arrived friday evening to find no room for parking at the back of the hotel but on talking to the receptionist she done a great job of moving cars around to create a space for us Got keys to our room to find it very cold and damp room 14 thats the negatives out the way from then on it was Excellent fantastic food in restaurant try the venison burger best burger iv ever had recommended by fix the head waiter because I could not make up my mind all the staff were very attentive always asking was every thing ok felt very welcome and would recommend to anybody looking for a resonably priced week end away

Room Tip: I would guess try for a room in the hotel could be warmer ?

Stayed at The Globe on business for one night.
After a long journey and a very dull business meeting i arrived at The Globe wanting no more than a bed and bath, but, couldnt resist the wondeful bar and fantastic reataurent and made a night of it.
Staff are very friendly and helpful, food is fantastic and the bar was very hard to leave.
Thanks to all at The Globe.

My partner and I spent a lovely weekend here! Upon arrival we were met by friendly staff who immediately made us feel welcome! We were shown to our room which was lovely and spacious - the photos don't do it justice! The bar is friendly and the bar staff cheerful, and drinks are cheaper there than at the Lighter Inn just down the road! We had booked a table in the restaurant when we arrived, but for some reason the reservation was not passed on to the restaurant by reception staff! However, even though the restaurant was busy and the staff incredibly busy, the head waiter bent over backwards to accommodate us and seated us at a table within minutes! The food was absolutely amazing and I was pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived - I would quite happily have paid more!
We will definately return to the Globe in the future and wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to friends and family!

The reviews on here were mixed when we were doing our research but we decided to book a room for 2 nights anyway as it was perfect for our friend's wedding. Thank goodness we did! We were in room 12 and it was gorgeous. The receptionist was very accommodating when we needed to check in early to get ready for the wedding. We would definitely come back. We didn't eat at the pub so have no comments on the food apart from highly recommending the breakfast. Gorgeous! Topsham is a cute little place too.

Reviewed 29 September 2012

This old inn promises much but its modern detached accommodation is very average. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated but small and had generally OK facilities except the shower was not in the bathroom but instead opened into the bedroom thus causing a wet carpet, etc. upon using the shower facility. Not too sure why its designed like this but the hotel owners will need to be spending out on a new carpet before long; room was also cold - weather at the end of September'12 has been very autumnal. Didn't use the hotel for breakfast - the room rate didn't include breakfast and the separate charge was high; plenty of places nearby offering a good breakfast at reasonable cost. Overpriced no doubt based on location
