“I felt pampered”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Hotel room was really beautiful and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was spacious and shower had enough water pressure. There were enough soap, shampoo, body lotion etc. available. Wi-fi worked very well in our room.
Staff was really friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was good, cooked to order and lunch time menu was good too; we had tasty burgers.
Car park is located 100 metres from the hotel and it was free 6 pm to 9 am, and during date time it costs like £2 / 5 hours.
Moretonhampstead is located ideally in the middle of Dartmoor and scenery around village was really nice; we had nice walks around village.
I hope to visit The White Hart again!

We arrived later than expected, but the welcome was undimmed. The menu choice in the restaurant was wide enough to suit my junk food addict partner and my somewhat more epicurean tastes. The room was very clean and well provided including local information on what to do and where, and the bed is probably the most comfortable that I have ever slept in over five continents of travel! Excellent and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Our room was on the back, but the main road doesn't seem to be that busy anyway and the sound pr...

I stayed here with my 2 friends for 3 days. I have to say we were immediately made to feel very welcome. Although all staff were friendly, the stand out star was Pippa for whom nothing was too much trouble, to the point of running down to the car park on the last day with some items one of us had left. She is a great credit to the hotel.

Roomy rooms and comfy beds, lovely food, nice informal bar area with good selection of beers. We had a lovley and very restful stay so many thanks.

Thank you for reviewing the hotel and we're delighted that you felt we 'went the extra mile' for you... or in Pippa's case a few extra hundred yards in her sprint to the car park! We do always endeavour to ensure our visitors have an enjoyable stay and we're pleased we got it right for you. Do come and see us again soon.

We are a family of four with two children under five. This hotel is very child friendly and the staff were very welcoming, and made a fuss of the children. The staff introduced the children to hotel cat and let them play the piano. The chocolates on the pillows were a nice touch, the room was very clean and modern, the towels white and fluffy. The food was the best I have had in quite some time, and there is a child's menu. Children are welcome in the restaurant which opens from 18.30. It is advisable to book a table. The only downside is that the car park is chargeable (minimal fee) so we unloaded children and luggage while the other parked the car. A great base to explore local attractions like the Miniature Pony Centre, Becky Falls and the Marble Museum.

Thank you for your very kind review. We are pleased to hear that you, and your children, had such a good stay with us. We are very well placed as a stopover for Cornwall while also being a great destination in our own right. Maybe next time you could stay a little longer on Dartmoor and get to see what else we have on offer!

Really lovely Sunday roast not to mention fab starter and pud! Staff friendly and unobtrusive, service good not kept waiting at all. The surroundings are just right for a homely feel yet bright and contemporary. Will definitely be back as not far from home in Tavistock!

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and for praising our Sunday lunch! It is always very popular and the traditional surroundings make it a very relaxing mealtime.

The drive across the moor from Tavistock to Moretonhampstead is stunning, so you get wonderful scenery as well! Hope to see you again soon.

This is a very friendly, comfortable hotel in a friendly small town in Dartmoor. I would recommend it to anyone. We ate dinner here, and it was one of the best meals that we have've had in our two weeks in England. The hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. The 2 room lobby is very comfortable for using our wi-fi and relaxing before dinner. The hotel welcomes dogs, as "Dartmoor and dogs go together"! But dogs are not allowed in the restaurant. There was one very well behaved schnauzer which just added to the ambiance. Loved it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the hotel and we are delighted to hear that you had such a great visit! Very encouraging to hear we performed so well in your quick tour of England.

Yes, dogs and Dartmoor really do go together and well-behaved dogs are always very welcome. We find they are also great conversation starters and many guests have ended up making great friends with some local pooches!

We stayed here, as a family with two kids, over Easter for three nights as a base for exploring Dartmoor

The hotel was very, very good. All staff where helpful and friendly. Our room, which was in the annexe, was spacious with a fantastic power shower, great for soothing aching muscles after long walks over Dartmoor. The hotel has a comfy lounge to relax in either before or after dinner.

The food was fantastic both at dinner time and breakfast. We ate in the hotel all three nights we stayed and can honestly say on each night that we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The menu offers a great choice for both kids and adults.

We will definitely return to stay at the White Hart next time we plan a visit to Dartmoor.
