We stayed here last mid-August, taking an unplanned road trip around the south west, arriving from Brixham. First impressions of the outside and lobby were positive. I'm not sure if the hotel will appreciate me sharing this, but we arrived without a booking around 3pm and after learning there were vacancies, attempted to bargain the price of a room. The receptionist wasn't overly keen on playing along and explained she would have to check with a manager in an adjacent office, returning with a piece of paper on which she had written the lowest price they would accept. It was under £100 so we went for it... Little did we know the room was the Agatha Christie suite, and so were pleasantly surprised! It is a truly lovely, large room with beautiful features - four poster bed and an immaculate bathroom with a HUGE bath. We considered this absolutely worth the price we paid.
Later we ate in the restaurant which was actually empty, bar one other couple (who we're sat in another section hidden from us). We both had a steak which was very good and recommended, served with sauce of your choice, fries, grilled mushroom/tomato etc. Particular thanks go to our waitress who's name escapes me; privately, we tipped her personally as the service was top notch. Additionally, the music was at a comfortable volume, and generally non intrusive (The XX's first album on repeat). We did use the bar, but sat outside until a young employee asked us politely to move inside before a certain time. We were pleased to learn that you can be served at the bar well into the small hours by a night porter present, but retired to our room around 1am. The inside bar itself is nice enough.
The following morning we checked out slightly late, but no pressure from the desk was encountered. Before departing we had coffee and orange juice on the outside front terrace (smoking) which is pleasant in summer. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return to the same room in August 2014!
