“Felt uncomfortable here”
Reviewed 14 August 2009

Stayed here for a couple of nights visiting family nearby.
Felt room was expensive for what it was - £59 per night with any breakfast extra! but this is maybe standard for the area.
Accomodation is in a few rooms - set back in a seperate block behind a pub in the village of Holbeton. The village itself is very pretty with lots of quaint cottages etc but the roads to the village are more or less single track roads with extremely high bankings.

The room itself was quite small but facilities were adequate. The bedding was probably the best thing in the room. The weather was very wet when we visited and I just felt cold. I thought I would have a bath to heat up but the bath was a short shower bath with a step/seat which did not seem to fill up but the shower was okay with plenty of hot water.
The plughole in the sink was horrid!
There was a sign saying to open the windows if using a hairdryer etc incase the fire alarm was set off and as the people in the next room were only feet away I felt I had to wait till a reasonable time in the morning to dry my hair so as not to wake everyone around. It just did not make me feel comfortable at all.
We also found our room unlocked when we came back one day after it had been cleaned.
Overall ok If you need a base to sleep.I may have had a different experience had the weather been nice but would not recommend if you can afford to pay a bit more for something a bit more special.

Having stayed here on the 30th/31st July I can't understand the last review. This isn't a five star hotel its a pub/hotel in a small village. The rooms were clean and comfortable with big beds. The three meals and breakfast's we had during our stay were really good. The staff were ok and served good beer, the pub atmosphere was exactly what you would expect in a village pub, friendly. From the location you can branch out and find local gems, speak to the landlord, Chris, who is only to willing to advise you.

Pleased to say that we booked a meal there before booking a room. We arrived in the bar at about 7.00pm and there were about 8 people there either drinking or eating. The welcome we received was almost a scowl, there was not even a hint of a smile. We ordered the food and 2 drinks while waiting. The drinks were served without a thankyou or a smile. I had liver and mash with peas which was OK as pub food goes but not too impressed. My partner had a smoked fish dish with a sauce which was deemed just about OK but it was cold on a cold plate and smothered in balsamic vinegar. The dish of veg was a mixed up mess of swede, cabbage and carrots. All over cooked. We had the meal and left without booking a room. The whole place looked ready to pack up and leave.

Very comfortable stay, rooms have recently been decorated so very clean. Rooms cleaned every day and Towels are changed every day.

The food in the Mild May Colours was excellent, definately worth a visit. We'll definately be visiting again in the summer.

We found some Lovely walks and the village of Holbeton is very pretty.

  • Liked — Friendly atmosphere!
  • Disliked — Nothing!
