We stayed for 4 nights in the Sea View room, having visited before, it is a gorgeous Victorian villa and it is a privilege to be able to stay in it and we were very envious of the owners having such a beautiful home. The setting is lovely, quiet and pretty gardens all set around the outdoor pool and terraces. Whilst we didn't use the indoor pool, other guests with children certainly did and it seemed very warm indeed. We very much liked our room, being light and airy with partial sea view, dual aspect over the gardens too. If I was being very picky it could do with some better seating as the chaise is not very comfortable or suitable for two and as it is a very large room it could take a small sofa or say 2 bucket type chairs in each window to take advantage of the great view. It was spotlessly clean with lovely toiletries provided and complimentary water too in addition to tea/coffee etc, also the power shower was excellent. Breakfasts especially the smoked salmon and eggs were lovely and felt very relaxed. The owner is very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and daytrips etc. It is very close to Meadfoot beach and also possible to walk into town say 20 minutes or try the coastal path walk via Daddyhole plain for great views and a nice walk down to the harbour. We will definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The Sea View room is especially roomy, light and airy.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner and her staff were very attentive without being over fussy, the whole hotel including the room were stylish and well furnished plus spotlessly clean throughout. Whilst we didn't use the outside pool it looked great and the breakfasts were superb. It was set in a very pleasant and leafy pert of the town and within a couple of minutes walk from the beach. If I was being very, very, very picky there were no glasses in the bathroom to rinse your mouth after cleaning your teeth and once we had a five minute delay for breakfast but were shown out to the super terrace and given tea. This is a superb place and heartily recommended.

Room Tip: Junior Suite a nice room, a little dark perhaps but more than made up for by the comfortable bed and...

Our stay in Haldon Priors Hotel was just fantastic, I can truly we say we felt like we had our own Villa in whats called the English Riviera. Its quiet, its beautiful, its clean. And best of all its owners give you the warmest welcome. Its one of those places you loose all sense of time. The English Riviera only makes sense when you stay at this hotel.
There is no need to explore to far from Haldon Priors, the beach is on the doorstep, with breath taking seascape views.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Haldon Suite, this didn't have a view, but its a huge room to spread out and we...

This is an elegant and stylish bed and breakfast hotel which deserves its 5 star rating. Our family had 2 double rooms for 5 nights. The rooms are very comfortable with good beds and very practicable, elegant bathrooms complete with little luxuries, excellent TV and music units and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is beautifully served in an elegant dining room. It is good and copious.
The indoor swimming pool was much appreciated.

This hotel was a delightful surprise after our initial disappointment with disastrous booking at an allegedly 3 star hotel with sea view. The location, service, hospitality and ambience of this place deserves the 5 star luxury rating.

My 14 year old daughter and I have travelled extensively around Asia and Europe and have had the privileged of staying in top quality accomodations. Haldon Prior is one of the rare gems of luxury accomodation which we intend to revisit at least once a year.

The facilities and amenities are top rated. We stayed at the luxury suite and immediately felt at home. Our King size bed was exceptionally comfortable and sleep inducing. We loved the serenity of the beautiful landscape garden and short distance to the beach and town center.

A good selection of breakfast choices, beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Overall, a very relaxed and rejuvenating short break thanks to Ping, the owner and her staff.
