Reviewed 5 September 2012

We stayed an extra night as we were there for a weekend course. Location was nice as was the food. Atmosphere was relaxed as was the service giving a country house feel.

Rooms need updating, for example we didn't have a shower only a bath and the cleanliness of the rooms was not good. The owners were very nice but overall considering the amount we paid for B&B we would have expected better service and we would expect our room to be cleaned and coffee/tea replenished every day.

So our advise is give it a go but make sure you negotiate a rate which is commensurate with the service/facilities before you go!

If you go there have a trip to Salcombe, lovely and lively little place!

It is quite correct that these guests staying for bed and breakfast before the course began, should have had their room serviced and things replenished – it was a very unfortunate over site on our part that this was not done their first morning .

Once the weekend course began there were notices put in the participants rooms to explain that, to keep costs down (it is a different price structure for a group), we do not service the rooms, however if it is particularly requested then we will of course make sure that they are serviced each day. We created a point where participants could help themselves to coffee and tea replacements – shower gel and shampoos etc. water bottles were refilled and available downstairs. It appears that this notice was omitted from the room in question which is unfortunate as we would have happily rectified the situation had we known.
We have since spoken with the guests and apologised for this oversight and offered a refund.

Once you find Hazelwood you realise it is worth the treck down the unadopted little roads and tracks. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. A comfortable room with idyllic valley views, elegant sitting rooms with original artwork on display, excellent selection of delicious wholesome fare at dinner, superb breakfasts, and staff who could not have been more attentive to our needs: all of this ensured we had a memorable experience. This place is unique and almost magical. We shall return.

We enjoyed the country house feel of this place and found the owners and staff very pleasant. This created a house party atmosphere in which guests would talk before dinner. The two dinners we had were excellent and well presented as were the breakfasts. We walked a little in the grounds when we arrived, a steep slope takes you down to a stream with an old boathouse. The building is certainly old and will not appeal to those who enjoy Holiday Inns and the like but this is part of it's charm.

This does lead to a bit of a downside though. We had a large double room with valley view which was nice but the bathroom had had to be squeezed into the corner between the window and the period fireplace and as such was, what you might call, compact! Another slight down was that a bottle of local beer was charged on our bill at £4 and a lager at £3.50 which we thought was a little steep.

We stayed on a KGB deal so it was obviously good value but I do not think I would consider staying at the rack price.

One major problem with this part of the South Hams is the narrow roads. The drive down to the hotel would be quite tricky if you met something but, fortunately, we never did. We also found this a problem when we visited Salcombe and Overbeck House (NT) - a lovely garden but only about 12 parking spaces so cars park on the long and very narrow road - chaos!

Strangely, because of the roads problem, I find myself giving this hotel 4 or 5 stars but deciding I probably won't visit again purely because of the driving (but I am a senior citizen and like a quiet life).

We only visited this because of our Taste-card. but what a find.!! put your Sat Nav on and find this lovely house, we only used the Restaurant, but talking 2 people who were staying there, they just loved it. The house is so cosy, but if you want "Modern/chic" this isnt for you.!! this is a quaint house, that just oozes friendliness. The restaurant is superb. the service excellent. we spoke to one of the owners, and they are so friendly and helpful. this house is well worth the time to seek and find. yes the roads are narrow, but so are most of the roads around that area.!!

Very out of the way, down little Devon lanes, but if you can get there it's well worth it. We have quite a big car, and we followed a tractor down that was cutting the hedges back - it got stuck!!! So funny. The house needs a little bit of tlc decoration wise, it's an old house that takes an awful lot of upkeep, but dont let that put you off. Our room was lovely in a quirky sort of way and very clean. The only downside was the tiny ensuite bathroom, but there is no other way it could be done because of the layout of the room - we coped, and had a laugh about it. The staff were very friendly, and helpful, and our evening meal was absolutely superb. We would definitely go back.

This is a grand old House with a lot of character and history, and run by people who have great warmth in their hearts. It is a colourful place with beautiful views and scenery, friendly and helpful staff, an affectionate and lovely little dog, comfortable rooms, and very good food. For me personally, I could have done with a menu that had snacks and sandwiches and salads, but I'm certain they would have accommodated me had I asked for such things. No request was denied, and everyone went out of their way to ensure I was well looked after and content. Can't wait to go again! Oh, just one more thing to mention. My visit was to chill out, write, and get some gentle exercise walking. I was on foot, and would advise those wanting more around them - such as shops and places to visit - you would need a car or to hire a taxi, because this House is pretty isolated. But saying that, that's what I loved about it ! All the surrounding nature is just beautiful.

We stayed for two nights, 5th and 6th June on a KGB deal and we had wonderful time. From the moment we turned into the lane leading to the house we knew that it was going to be delightful and it truly was. We love wonky stairs, sash windows and olde world comfort and felt very at home. Our room was clean and comfortable and the view from our window was overlooking the valley. It was lovely to have the window open and listen to the birds and sheep instead of traffic.
The staff were delightful too, as was the service and the food. The weather stopped us from fully exploring the grounds on this occasion, but we hope to go back to do so. The lack of phone signal was a plus for us. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but for us it was just what we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Valley views are amazing!
