my friend and I stayed first week in January and loved it. The room was lovely and the meals were excellent, the entertainment in the evening was great fun and the staff were just so friendly. We would recommend this hotel and would go back again. well done to the Durrant house hotel and keep up the good standards thank you.

I booked a twin room as it was my cousins 60th birthday, it was £79 for 4nights dbb.
the entrance has a wow factor, pillars and marble. I had booked a room with disabled access but our first room had a step in shower; but we were immediately re-allocated another room which had fully disabled access. The hotel has obviously had upgrades and the décor was soft and carpets were clean. After a bad experience with mattress at Leeds Bradford we found there was a proper mattress cover and the heating worked.!
Shower room had marble effect walls and flooring, all spotless

the meals were very good 3 courses and there was always a veggie option which was delicious, they also catered for vegans and gluten intolerant but that needed to be booked in advance and there was an extra charge. dogs were welcome at £4 per night

enterntainment was on every night a dj playing records which were suitable to the age group. Tuesday was a singer who sang songs to guests requests, did not do the bingo or price is right

the ball room had lovely chandlers and tables were spaced well apart
waiting staff were attentive, polite and friendly.

As we were self drive with no excusions I asked reception staff what they recommend and they came up with several suggestions.

will certainly come back again

Room Tip: if it is not want you want ask them to move you

We have just spent a long weekend here, this is our second visit to this hotel. We travelled with family and friends. We loved it last time and we loved it again this time. The rooms were lovely, we booked late so we were lucky to be accomodated. Our room overlooked the courtyard. We got this weekend for peanuts and it didn't disapoint. The staff were lovely, we had a scream with them and nothing was too much trouble. They took all our banter in good spirits. The food was first class again and plenty to eat. It arrived promptly and was hot. We were lucky to have our meals in the ballroom this time and not downstairs and this was much better. The hotel was pretty full and this added to the weekend, everyone was having a good time and lots of different age groups. Only niggle i had was that the rooms were very hot even though the radiator didn't seem to be on at all. Breakfast was far too early for a weekend break and the gap between dinner and the entertainment was too long, Why can't meals be later or staggered a bit. I would stay here again without doubt, it is a great base for exploring north devon. Thanks to all of the staff .

Great hotel near to everything, they do a great food deal for only £7,50 good main course with a dessert, excellent value for money. Only a couple of minutes drive into bideford or Westward ho, regular bus service outside the hotel entrance which goes to Westward, Bideford, Barnstaple, Woolacombe, Illfracombe.
