“Friendly Hotel offering good service”
Reviewed 13 December 2010

Stayed here with a group of friends and the service was excellent. It had been snowing heavily and we were greeted with a warm welcome from the manageress who looked after us excellently throughout our stay. We'd definitely go back.

My husband and I stayed here for the night in November. We were lucky enough to have the honeymoon suite which has beautiful views of the lake at the entrance of the hotel. The autumn colours in the grounds and the scenery generally was stunning, even in the rain!
The room was clean and warm with a lovely four poster bed. We had breakfast and dinner which were both very enjoyable, a wide enough choice on the menu to suit most tastes and reasonably priced.
The staff were very friendly and helpful which always makes a break more memorable and enjoyable. We will definately be staying again and hopefully next time we can take a walk around the grounds, weather permitting.

I have just stayed at Lakeview on a visit to see my brother and family. I stayed with my daughter in a twin room which was to say the least grubby and dated! Carpet in the toilet complete with a dubious stain! Its all very well to have electrical safety stickers on the appliances but what's the point when the socket on the wall was hanging loose? The breakfast was meagre - not much choice. I rang reception one evening to get a password to access the internet - three attemps later over a half hour period someone finally picked up the phone. Do not waste your money. Oh dead flowers in the baskets outside always sets the tone too.

Lakeview Manor is in a wonderful setting in the rolling Devon landscape. The rooms are basic but satisfactory at the price paid £74.00 to include breakfast. Bathrooms especially shower would benefit from a good deep clean and let down the rest of the experience. Food reasonably priced.

The hotel is set in a good location with beautiful grounds. When we booked in we were given the key to the room and asked to find our own way. This would have been acceptable but unfortunately the stirs and the hall way were dark and have to struggle through. The room was tiny and no space to move around. The bath room was not very clean and again no space to put the used towels or our toiletries. The service was poor. We expected a better room and service for the price we paid

Fishponds House is now renamed Lakeview Manor. It is set in 45 acres of beautiful peaceful countryside with 3 fishing lakes. Our room was one of the smaller ones, but quite adequate. Excellent breakfast and although we did not dine in the evening, it has a good reputation for food.

We stayed for one night to break a journey to Cornwall from Kent. We had booked a family suite which was located in the courtyard area. The room was very basic and not all that comfortable. The worst aspect was the tired, unpleasant bathroom.

However, the main hotel and the service provided could not have been better. The staff were friendly and helpful, the welcome was warm and the evening meal delicious.

With a few improvements to the accommodation, this could be an excellent place to stay.
