My husband and I visited Dartmoor Lodge for our anniversary for a two night break. We managed to get a great deal fo the two nights and even got a room upgrade for free. Staff are so friendly and helpful even providing us with directions to local attractions. The bed was dreamy and provided an excellent nights sleep. The food was lovely and very reasonable in price using local produce with generous portions. The hotel was very cosy with log fires and oak beams and very clean. I would reccomend this hotel. Perfect location too.

Room Tip: If you visit within a week of your birthday you get a bottle of wine!

We took all the rooms in the hotel for a bridge week-end, as we did this time last year. Everything was excellent for the price paid; food, staff, accomodation, cleanliness and helpfulness. Althought the hotel was busy with other diners they allowed us to eat early each evening and provided us with tailored menus so we could maximise our bridge playing. We had the carvery on Friday and Sunday and it was great - beef that wasn't grey as well as gammon, pork and turkey! Starters and puddings were very good, the smoked salmon and asparagus and rasperberry cheescake in particular. Breakfasts provide something for everyone and everything is very freshly cooked on the buffet (batches of 3 or 4 fried eggs, not tray fulls which go all hard).

Room Tip: Depending on which you prefer rooms 319 and 321 have fourposters and have either bath or shower respectively.

After 3 months travelling (boat cruising etc) (from Australia) wanted a visit to Dartmoor. From the start the staff (and owners) so friendly. One visit to the dining room and we ended up easting -in house - all three nights. Oh - that steak and stout pie - the best ever! Room plain but large, bright and clean. Restaurant deffinately 3 -4 star. Great bar, regular locals. This was supposed to be my last trip to Europe - but I will deffinately be back. Contratulations the the owners.

Stayed at the Dartmoor Lodge as I was at the conference centre at Buckfast Abbey for three days. The accommodation was nothing exceptional but it was clean and adequate. The food was fairly simple but extremely well cooked and presented and there was something on the menu for everyone.
What made the stay stand out from other hotels was the staff. They were friendly, helpful, informative, attentive. They got it just right. Thank you.
