“peaceful pleasant 2 star with 3 star pricing”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

IF this establishment wants to improve it's ocupancy levels and be competitive it will have to up it's game by putting the guests first, provide better value for money and not rely on it's park-like location & exisiting ever-returning loyal senior guests.
Meal time serving windows of 75 minutes for breakfast and a mere one hour for dinner, whilst no doubt is convenient for the management and staff, is very inflexible for guests, During our stay a fellow guest complained that by eating dinner late, tables were being set for breakast at all around them and the cheese board was not available. The coffee dispenser is removed from the dining room moments after the last diner has served themsleves and the empty coffee cups just as quickly collected so that staff can go home and the hotel effectively shut up shop for the night.
For a 2 star hotel the food is 3 star and excellent with a good choice, delivered to your table very quickly and with immense politeness. You have just enought time to catch your breath between courses.
The bedrooms are generally far more austere than the website or the tired photographs in the entrance display board would have you believe. Bathrooms are immaculate though.
But for £73/£88 per person per night it's too much - there are 3 star hotels not far away that charge near enough this, and even offer better deals than a night free when booking 3 nights. Even older people Google search and are more price savy these days!
Hunters Moon closes in January then charges £71 per night D B & B in February - compared with a local 3 star that charges £49 D B & B for a minimum of 2 nights.
Peaceful pleasant and very middle class Ye Olde English which is lovely but the world has moved on and to survive so must the Hunters Moon, not so much as to spoil the ambience but to
remain viable and competitive.

Room Tip: Some rooms a long convoluted hike if you are less than mobile - but all are quiet.

Been to Hunter's Moon on a number of occassions now. Staff are always so welcoming and pleasant and eager to help and please, nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are clean, althought could do with updating, as old fashioned or pine furniture now showing age. No shower over bath was very dissappointing. Food is always nice, but must be used to eating early as dinner is 6.30pm - 7.30pm, but this seems to suit most of their clientele whom are of late retirement age, but at least the is no queue for the bar after 9.30pm! Overall everything is lovely but they seem to have taken their eye off the ball recently and become complacent, shame.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms more up to date than upper floor rooms

A very comfortable privately owned hotel. Everything runs so smoothly and is a credit to the hands on approach of the owners, The service is impeccable and the rooms clean and well maintained. Food is good ,varied and plentiful. You will do well to get around to the cheese and biscuits. The Clientel is mainly of mature years - we know what we like when we see it.

Lovely Georgian manor house in a quiet setting within Sidmouth. Our bedroom was on the top floor, very clean and comfortable, well decorated, noticed outside paint work by our window needed doing though. The staff were very helpful and polite. The breakfast choice was excellent. Plenty of parking. Ideal choice for a romantic weekend away, to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are the smallest.

We find the staff at the Hunters Moon are friendly, helpful, and together with the proprietors, make one feel very welcome. The rooms are clean, tidy, nicely furnished - not so keen on the Regency style wallpaper in some of them! Duvets are in use on the beds - a sheet for very hot nights, also comfortable pillows would enhance the stay. The food is well prepared and presented, with a wide enough variety for all tastes and requirements. Parking is good, and although there isn't a lift, there are good bedrooms at ground level.

We can thoroughly recommend the hotel in its lovely grounds and setting - adjacent to The Byes, and not too far from the sea and shops.

Room Tip: All rooms have their good points!
