Dart Marina Hotel and Spa
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Dartmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

After a long wet winter we wanted a few days away and decided on the Dart Marina. It has been thirty years since we last visited this hotel and we were not disappointed.
The very comfortable room was spotless and well equipped, the extra for the balcony was well worth it.

We are regular visitors to The Dart Marina Hotel, usually in December for a family birthday. Our custom in April has been to visit Salcombe for two family birthdays on consecutive days, but this year that hotel had closed for refurbishment, so we agreed unanimously that we should return to Dartmouth. I have already reviewed The Dart Marina from our December visit, and can only re-affirm that this is a really nice place to stay. The staff are welcoming and attentive, the decoration is well executed and well maintained, the meals are excellent. The location has spectacular views over the river, and is minutes away from the town centre on a level walk. If you like to walk, then there are a number of enjoyable walks up the river, and down to the coast path. You can chose from a large selection of river cruises on boats of all sizes, remember to wrap up well! And there are numerous attractions nearby if you don't walk or sail!

Beautiful views over River Dart. Friendly, helpful staff. Very well appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Lovely huge bath towels. Excellent breakfast. Good on site parking. Well worth considering if you are in the area.

The service was excellent, the room was very comfortable and the location of the Hotel and amenities are very good. The whole service and what you provide I liked the best, there is nothing to add about anything that I liked the least.

Stayed with friends at a superb 2 bedroom apartment. It really felt like a home from home. Great view of The Dart out of the window. A short stroll along the quay to the town.
The apartment was clean, well equipped and very well maintained to a high specification. The furnishings were modern and comfortable. It really would not have been so bad to have stayed in on a wet day, however, the weather was glorious.
Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 105 was great

This hotel exceeded my expectations. We had just escaped from the Headland Hotel in Newquay which was a hell hole so to turn up here last minute was like finding civilisation again. The rooms are truly spotless and a pleasure to stay in. The balcony was just perfect. We didn't have half board but we wished we had. Someone who knows how to pick staff and manage people is in charge here. I really cannot find any fault. Reception were so helpful and it was so nice to be looked after by professionals. Thank you...wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Have a balcony room. Not a Juliette balcony.

After looking around Dartmouth for a place to go for Sunday lunch we decided to give the Marina a try and I am glad that we did. Their lunch menu is very well priced considering the location and restaurant environment. For my starter I had butternut squash and ginger soup which was gorgeous. I then went for the Sunday roast which was lovely, well cooked and well presented. Although I didn't have enough room for dessert I couldn't resist trying my partners, a salted chocolate and caramel delice, which was so good I ended up eating half of it! The service was very good and our table had a lovely view over the river. My only slight criticism would be that the drinks menu is a bit pricey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Simply breath-taking by the River Dart. Early morning walks, slow afternoons taking tea on the terrace, evenings watching the lights dance on the river. Not forgetting food glorious food. The River Restaurant certainly lives up to its name with wide River views from every table. Dart Marina is a place where it’s easy to hide away in a peaceful corner, spend an hour in the Spa, or just while away the time gazing at the amazing views. ... more   less
