We have just got back after a 2 day stay for my friends wedding. It was absolutely fab. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. The service was great and all the staff couldnt do enough for you. Breakfast finished a bit early, but was ok this time due to having to get ready for the wedding. The wedding arrangements were perfect and it was such a special day. Would definitely recommend this lovely hotel.

Stopped by for a late Breakfast on a recommendation. We arrived at about 10.45 am and asked if Breakfast was still being served, we were told that it was. We both ordered the same, Tea first to be followed by Eggs, Bacon and Sausages. After quite a long wait it arrived and we asked for Pickle and Sauce, we waited again and after asking for a second time the pickle was brought another ask for the sauce and it eventually arrived. The food was of a reasonable standard, but then Bacon and Eggs should not be too difficult. We remarked that the sauces were a long time coming as was toast, first without butter, we had to ask for it and also ask for marmalade. We again remarked that service was slow and were then told that Breakfast finished at 9.30 am, why we were not told that to begin with we do not know. The board outside the hotel said that it was open to non-residents and that food was served all day. We would have asked what we could have if tild that Breakfast ended at 9.30 am. Will be giving this one a miss next time.

Room Tip: We did not stay only had a meal.

Have stayed at the Dartmoor Lodge in Asburton several times over the last few years, and can honestly say since Diane and Trevor took over our stays have been excellent. The hotel has been steadily upgraded since their arrival and is by far the best in the area. Rooms are very comfortable, food excellent and very good value. Staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We are looking forward to our next stay.

I have visited The Dartmoor Lodge on many occasions and honestly can't fault a single thing! We went most recently for a family birthday and it was throughly enjoyed so much we returned two weeks later for another get to together. The food is faultless; full of flavour, fresh and you will never leave hungry with the wide variety the menu has to offer. Partnered with a great bar selection, cosy welcoming atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and the amazing staff, why would you want to go anywhere else?

At first glance, Hotel looks pretty rundown basic rooms and very small TV looks like the owners are in the process upgrading parts of of the hotel.l Place has a decent atmosphere with friendly staff. The food surprisingly good and decent value given the mediocre soundings

Room Tip: Ask to visit the room, my room was very noisy, and that was close to some type of plant room or heat...

A group of us stayed there for one night whilst visiting the area for a family party. There were 10 of us in total, and the hotel kindly arranged for us to have all our rooms close together. On Saturday evening, even though they were busy, they happily accommodated all of us for dinner even though we hadn't booked, and even found a small separate room for us to eat in as the restaurant was full. The food was very good - generous portions and freshly cooked. The bar has a number of local real ales on draught and they are all very drinkable. Breakfast the following morning was excellent, and again they had arranged a large table so that all of us could sit together.

The rooms are comfortable with everything that you need to make your stay a pleasant one.

I cannot praise the staff too highly. They are all without exception friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I will definitely stay there again if I ever find myself down in that part of Devon.
