An easy hotel to park in, convenient for the motorway. Hence noisy if you open the windows, well insulated otherwise. Grounds and lawns could be tidier. A lovely annex to the main building, which looks like a converted farmhouse. Annex has easy access, wide corridors and very good decor. Room furniture excellent, plenty of hooks and hanging space. We loved the open style wardrobe with corner compartments. Bathroom good to excellent, vents well with excellent bath and shower. Bed excellent, very wide with good mattress and pillows. We stayed for 2 nights after a visit to Exeter on the way back to London.
We were disappointed with two things. Firstly, sticky bed side tables from previous cups and glasses. Very sticky and obvious. Yet the cleaner had placed a cardboard advert on the sticky surfaces. Secondly the reception greeting and attitude/service. Not bad but average. Rather robotic and indifferent, not impolite but could have been so much better. We arrived when one receptionist was on the phone. Fair enough, understandable but it might be good to train staff to, excuse the caller, acknowledge the entrance of guests and return to the caller.
Overall a good stay but could easily be made better at no cost to anyone.
