“A return visit - as good as the first time.”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

This was our second stay at the Seven Stars. Booked a deluxe room for two nights to celebrate an anniversary. Warm welcome, fabulous room. Very clean, excellent bed, lovely staff particularly Ewen in the bar and the amazing, sparky lady who serves the breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff were helpful and jolly. This is a very busy and buzzing establishment with a great atmosphere, plenty of food choice, excellent wine list. My partner (an ale buff) loves the beers on offer. Dinner in the restaurant was very nice indeed. Quick, competent service, good food and not overpriced. A great base for exploring Totnes. We will return.

Room Tip: We have stayed in 2 of the deluxe rooms that face out onto the street. It can be a little noisy late...

We stayed 2 nights over the New Year and had a fabulous time.Six of us stayed and we all liked our rooms which were varying in price. Rooms were quiet despite being in town and above a popular bar. All the staff from cleaners to reception to bar staff and waiters were very friendly and attentive. The entertainment on New Years Eve was fantastic, with two groups in two areas of the hotel and even a disco for the group's breaks. The venue was great for mixing with the very friendly locals and they visited the hotel, paying for wristbands on New Year's eve, therefore ensuring a mix of age groups. All meals were delicious and attentively served - amazing as they served so many on NYE and there was a great choice at all times. The weather was terrible but the hotel is so welcoming that we hope we will stay again in 2014. They offer some great deals. The sales were great on our last day as the town offers some lovely and unusual shops.

I was part of a work party to the seven stars for a xmas party. There was another party there with us sharing the upstairs room. The hotel/pub was very busy, as it is usually. I have eaten there in the day and evening and the food has been ok but I had been warned by several people that they do not cater well for large parties but was prepared to have an open mind. The starter which was soup was ok but the main, a turkey roast (there was very little choice for the cost of £27 a head!) Was not good. The turkey was off a catering roll and only had a very thin slice of bland tasting breast meat and a tiny bit of dark meat. We were on a table of 12 and there weren't enough vegetables only 2 dishes and when we asked for more they had run out. On the table were 4 party poppers and crackers and a glass of strange tasting pink drink. The pudding was ok too a little indifferent. As I say I have eaten there several times and it has been fine and it is a lovely hotel in a lovely town. All I can say maybe stay clear of booking a large function there as the food isnt cheap and very in different.

Room Tip: Try the food on a normal day and they do good special breaks

royalsevenstars, Manager at Royal Seven Stars Hotel, responded to this review, 19 January 2014
Thank you for your comments. I’m sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your party night. We do take as much care and attention for 140 guests as we do for 2.
We use local supplies and good local food in all areas of the hotel. The turkeys we use are not catering rolls but fresh turkeys which are boned and rolled hence the shape. We always serve seasonal vegetables and potatoes family style on the table and offer plenty for everyone so we apologise if there was not enough on the evening and we of course would offer more so please accept our apologies if this did not happen. All of our desserts in the bars, brasserie and banqueting are made by our pastry chef including our Christmas puddings.
We cater for up to 200 people on many functions throughout the year and do take care and attention on all. Please accept our apologies if you were disappointed and we did not make your evening special. When you are next in please see one of our management team as we would love to restore your faith in us.

Had two nights at Royal Seven Stars Hotel and found the rooms well up to expected standard and beds extremely comfortable. Restaurant good and reasonably priced. Situated in the centre of Totnes but not noisy. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Beautifully kept old-England hotel, run by talented energetic management and staff. We've just returned from a Christmas Party (in January) in Totnes and The Royal Seven Stars looked after everyone with creditable aplomb again. Thanks. We'll be back very soon.

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!

Room Tip: The Agatha Christie Suite.

We stayed here unexpectedly and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast was excellent and the bar and restaurant food good, we had a family room which was great and would be delighted to stay again.

One thing would make it better is a slightly wider menu with less carbs choices -I was desperate for a choice of salad or veggie dishes which were good but limited
