“ruby wedding anniversary 9th november 2010”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

we stayed at the hotel for a ruby wedding anniversary and had the best time ever. Food was excellant and was served by some of the best waiters and waitresses have come across on my travels. The rooms were to an excellant standard. The town is a short walk away so there is plenty to do. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are in this area. We could not of had a better time. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.

We recently stayed the weekend for a 40th Wedding Anniversary, the rooms were lovely, nice and clean, beds very comfortable and a lovely view over the park. Nothing was to much for the staff, very friendly and very helpful with anything we asked for. The food was excellent. The room we had the party in was excellent, they had made the room look very nice and the tables were dressed very well and although there was 130 of us for a 3 course sit down meal, they did an excellent job getting us all served. Would recommend this hotel .

Stayed here whilst on a business trip. The room was functional and was located in the annex at the back of the Hotel. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, had free wi fi and easy access to town. Minor irritation of stairs and no lift in annex and having to walk over to main hotel for breakfast which isn't ideal in the pouring rain.

Stayed October 2013

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us. I am pleased that you were comfortable in your room and apologise that you found being located in our garden court rooms during poor weather inconvenient. Wherever possible we aim to give our guests rooms that they request, should you plan to stay with us in the future please contact a member of our reception who will be more than happy to help with locating you the best suitable room. With regards to the lift, I apologise again, this is an ongoing plan which will hopefully come into place in the near future.

Thank you again for taking the time to review The Park hotel and we hope you return to us should you visit Barnstaple again

My wife & I had our Ruby Wedding at The Park Hotel recently and the whole event was excellently run by the management and staff. Nothing was too much trouble on the day or with agreeing to our demands in the year long run up to the event. The rooms were clean and tidy and the restaurant staff friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel which is situated close to town but in a quiet location overlooking Rock Park and the river Taw. We took over the whole hotel and had guests from age 70yrs+ to 18mths and we have received numerous positive comments about the hotel and the event. Good leisure facilities in a sister hotel close by.

Room Tip: Garden Court very quiet, rooms overlooking the Park slightly larger and south facing.

We were a party of 9 Golfers staying for 3 nights on a full board package. The rooms were spacious, clean and very welcoming. Our food was excellent in choice and presentation. This hotel made our Golf trip a very good experience. The team at the hotel were very professional and friendly and if we could award a 6th star we would. We will return, whether they want such a boisterous bunch again we will discover when we try to book again.

The Park Hotel is a traditional three star full service hotel overlooking Rock Park in the centre of Barnstaple. It is a short and level walk to the centre of the town. The Park Hotel has all the facilities that one would expect from this type of hotel. In addition to rooms in the main hotel, there are additional, and slightly cheaper, rooms in an annex across the car park and at the rear of the main hotel. I stayed in one of these rooms. It was appropriately furnished, well cared for and quiet. I also ate in the restaurant in the evening which again is conservative and traditional but with a high standard of service and excellent food. See photographs.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex are cheaper and good value.

The Park Hotel is one of the Brend hotel's four properties in and around Barnstaple and served us perfectly well on a two night business trip to North Devon

The rooms are more than adequate... an ungenerous eye might say slightly dated, but the bed was very comfortable and bathroom very modern with a powerful shower.

However, the thing that stands out are the staff. They clearly all like working with each other, have personalities and engage really well with customers. We had really good chat with Steven - the barman, porter cum concierge. He was really fun and stood out in particular.

The other stand out is the breakfast. When the server comes towards you carrying the plate in both hands you know you're in for a generous portion. Oh my, amazing Full English, that I only just managed to finish! ;-)

Really great welcome to Devon and would certainly return in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Facing the park... double glazing means not much noise from the road
