“A lovely stay with helpful staff”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We have had a lovely stay at the Park and will be returning very soon. The hotel is clean, excellent value and well positioned. The town is within easy walking distance so The Park is ideal for those who want to spend a break away without driving.

We have eaten there at all times if the day and the food is excellent.

Stayed here for 3 nights in the middle of May in room 209 in the Garden Courtyard. Overall, the hotel was reasonable value, but felt disappointed with the room. It was a standard room, but was tiny - can't think of a smaller hotel room I have stayed in. Much smaller than we were led to believe from the photos on the Park Hotel website. The mattress was also far too soft. Perhaps some of that could be down to personal taste, but even so, it was like sleeping on a bouncy castle. On the plus side, the breakfast was good. Lots of choice and well presented. The hotel's location (about a 5-10 minute walk along the riverside to the town centre) is a strong selling pojnt as is the onsite parking. Not sure I would choose to stay here again though, especially if all the standard rooms are like the one we stayed in.

Room Tip: If you are booking a standard room, check the room size and mattress quality!

Well situated with the town centre only a short walk away along the riverbank, the hotel is clean, comfortable and the food of a high standard. I particularly like the fact that breakfast is not the usual 'serve yourself' buffet. Staff are helpful and friendly. I had a front room overlooking the park - spacious and comfortable (may experience some traffic noise). Nice size bathroom. No lift so if you are not fully mobile this may be a problem.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a nice view but light sleepers may hear the traffic. Room 101 has an air conditioni...

Park Hotel lots of parking, pleasant reception staff and the place felt like a family run establishment.

No lift but managed the flight of stairs to my first floor room.

Large room overlooking the park. Large double, well two singles pushed together which was only an issue as one bed was slightly higher than the other, nethertheless comfortable.
Great beverage pack, hairdryer and a good number of hangers.
The dressing table with mirror was lacking a chair so the mirror was a bit useless.

Bathroom looked new, lovely cast iron bath, great shower and very fluffy towels, shame they were bath sheets as thst would have been perfect. Complementary toilettries that were very nice.

Bar area was quite small, large restaurant with the bar at the front.

Breakfast, usual sort of choice.

On the whole nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Oops clicked on pool bit by mistake no pool

We stayed here for 3 nights s visiting family. The first room we were given (114) was not up to the cleanliness standards I have come to expect from the Brend group and had an awful smell. After talking to a very understanding receptionist we were moved to a much nicer room with very good facilities. We only ate breakfast here but the quality was superb with a fantastic choice of cooked and/or continental. The staff were very welcoming especially the young man with the love of lego (!!) who had a wonderful sense of humour. When we next visit Barnstaple this hotel will definitely be one of choice. For those new to Barnstaple we would love to recommend The Bank as a fantastic restaurant with marvellous menu choice and within walking distance .

It's nice hotel this one. The location for us is perfect and the rooms are comfortable. The staff are very friendly with a warm welcome at reception, bar and for breakfast. Only stay for 1 night so first impressions are important to returning when next in town. Breakfast was excellent and not your usual buffet. Cooked breakfast was to order so nice and warm and freshly cooked.
Will be back.

We were really impressed with the hotel. We were staying for my mother in law's 70th birthday party and had the function room
Booked for a dinner and band.

The whole experience was an excellent one. We had an interconnecting room
Which was spotless and enormous! Had a fab view over the park.

I must say thAt the best bit about the stay was the staff. Every single person we encountered was helpful, cheerful and relaxed. It made the whole thing very easy. A special thanks to the man who allowed us to interrupt the pre party organisation and let two excited little girls practice their ballet show- even giving them ribbon to dance with (this greatly improved the show)
There were Lots of children running about at the event and the staff managed to continue service efficiently and still smiling!
Really
Impressed all round- thanks
