My husband and I stayed at the hotel for the first time for 2 nights in mid August whilst he was on business on Barnstaple. We enjoyed the fact that the service together with the decor and ambience of the hotel gave us what we value but don't seem to find so much any more in the modern hotels. We had traditonal, personal and excellent hospitality and it felt like going back in time to the golden age of hotels. We stayed in room 109 which was clean and beautifully decorated with lovely views over the river.The chocolates, slippers and dressing gowns added to the feeling of luxury. The food and service at breakfast and dinner was excellent and we were particularly impressed with the fantastic service we received from Magda in the restuarant. Nick and Matthew are also singled out for high praise for their service, together with the ladies on reception. Whilst many of the guests were older than us, we enjoyed the quiet and respect which fellow guests had for one another. All the staff couldn't do enough for you and we were impressed that having arrived late and harassed, the Director Matthew Brend was so helpful and carried our bags to our room. I don't think a lot of Hotel Directors would have done that for us! We will definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing stay.
