Reviewed 23 January 2014

Great hotel and very helpfull staff, great room and very comfortable too! Good wifi signal as well. Apart from the hotel there is not much close by for food apart from a Burger King which closes at 10pm.
Breakfast is self service, which i prefer and chef prepares eggs on request a nice touch. Didn't have chance to use the leasuire facilities as I arrived late and I was only booked in for one night.
I would stay here again if working in the area again.

I had a very enjoyable stay here and recommend this Hotel for price , food and facilities.
The Staff are superb and the three evening meals were as good as I have had in a long time.
I going back to Barnstaple Hotel next week too as its too much to pass up.
There ' s also a gym and a pool to boot.
All is well maintained and clean throughout. I am a frequent Hotel user and this is the best on all fronts in this area.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the outdoor pool if poss.

My wife & i, together with several other members of Keynsham Town FC, stayed in the Barnstaple Hotel last week to make the most of our long trek to Devon to play Barnstaple Town.

The hotel, whilst not overly attractive externally, has been thoroughly modernised with excellent facilities. Our spacious double room had a pleasant balcony overlooking the swimming pool, with fine views of the hills beyond.

Thoroughly recommended if you are visiting North Devon and its spectacular scenery!

Room Tip: Swimming pool view, with balcony

Enjoyable stay, combining a weekend break with catching up with family. Friendly, helpful, staff and nice clean rooms. Menu for bar, rooms, restaurant appeared a bit limited, but staff were happy to adapt menus to suit our somewhat awkward requirements.
