We stayed overnight on a trip to Devon visiting relatives in the area. It was a delight to use this hotel; their motto of "easy to find, hard to leave" sums it up.
We booked by email and replies came without delay - unlike some places where you are left wondering whether the message was received. Their website is also easy to use.
We arrived early evening, were welcomed immediately by name and showed up to our room. We stayed in Mr Toad's room and on walking in it had the "wow" factor. large, bright and beautifully furnished.
After a short stroll around the village we had an excellent dinner before retiring to the comfortable bed.
Breakfast was good and after paying what we thought a reasonable sum for the dinner, bed and breakfast deal we were leaving when we met the owner who was keen to hear our thoughts.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay; lovely building, good food and drink, and very importantly, welcoming and friendly staff.
We would go again and recommend it without hesitation
