“A thoroughly good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Good location; interesting building; first class staff; good food; and reasonable value. A relaxing stay for business or leisure trips. The hotel manages to combine an ancient building with some good modern touches in the bar.

I have tired in recent years of Totnes and its Bohemian, 'Alternative' and rather hippy way of being. It isn't the real world and seems only supported by well-heeled blow-ins from outside Devon who want it as their precious 'hub to be different'. At least in the Royal Seven Stars, classic standards haven't been encroached upon. The food is excellent and the location at the bottom of the main road and adjacent to The Plains is a good meeting place. I hope it doesn't change.

Cannot fault the facilities, ambience and staff friendliness. I had two meals here and hung out drinking coffee a few times during a stay in Totnes. Efficient, relaxed, friendly staff. Good food. Good coffee and lovely to relax, inside or out. Seemed OK to sit around for as long I liked. Lovely atmosphere, rambling building, clean and airy. The best location for the high street shops and river walks.

First time at this establishment.

Originally sat outside - which was nice in the sunshine, although a little noisy from the traffic as you are right on one of the main roundabouts into Totnes.

We ended up inside, in the bar area, which was due to inclement weather (although there were awnings to protect customers). Decorated nicely with a lovely quirkiness due to the age of the building. Staff were very friendly and plentiful but strangely the bar service was quite slow. The lunchtime 'rush' had finished as it was around 2 o'clock.

We all decided to have a carvery (priced at £9.95). Nice range of tasty meats, a small selection of vegetables - but all had a nice flavour. There were four of us, and unfortunately the roast potatoes ran out - much to the anger of one of the managers. He did apologise and offered to bring the missing portions to the table. He duly did.

Nice surroundings, nice tasting food - just thought it was a bit pricey.

Will return at some point to try something from the regular menu.

Thank you for the kind words. We would not usually expect to run out of potatoes during our busy Sunday lunchtimes and although we had some on their way we apologise that they were not out ready for you at the time. We hope you will come back soon and try something off of our new and improved bar menu.

Went in for lunch which was served promptly by really excellent staff and our gammon steaks cooked to perfection. Lovely crunchy chips and a clean friendly atmosphere combined with reasonable prices will keep us returning time and again. A good, honest service dedicated to its customers. Thank you and well done.

Over 80 people attended the evening meal. It was Ashburton twinned with Cleder, in Brittany. It's an ideal venue for having a function. The meal was excellent and the staff attentive to our needs. Well worth a visit.

My friend and I just spent four nights here over a bank holiday weekend which makes things quite a bit livelier than normal. We each had a premium single room overlooking the street and above the bars which made for noisy evenings well past midnight which we tolerated but could have done without. I'm not sure if there are any quiet rooms over a busy weekend...

The hotel is beautifully decorated with all kinds of interesting things to look at on the walls and the three food venues offer great menus and excellent food. We especially enjoyed the fantastic breakfasts in the mornings and had a lovely dinner in the fancy restaurant on our last night which was just wonderful.

All the staff are very friendly and helpful and remembered who we were each time we came and went. The location is very central and convenient to everything. The rooms were comfortable but of course not very modern in some regards like the windows not closing properly. Lovely big bathrooms with a shower and a tub which was a treat. The mattress was a little lumpy but fine. The big deluxe rooms looked fantastic and would definitely be worth a splurge.

Thank you for all of the kind words. One of the advantages of being a smaller hotel means that we are able to offer a high standard of service to you as an individual. We hope you will come back and try one of our deluxe rooms for your next visit.
