“A fantastic "Oasis" hotel in the heart of devon”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We are currently halfway into a 2 day stay that we bought on multi deals, it was a bit of an impulse buy, £90 for 2 nights B&B and one evening meal for 2, seemed great value, and it is. Being in the Armed forces it became very difficult to pin down an opportunity to stay. Luckily Carol, the proprietor has been fantastic in enabling this to happen.
Reception on arrival was very pleasant, room is nice and clean with all essentials needed. We decided to have dinner last night, this was a fantastic 3 course meal prepared to the highest of standards, very enjoyable.
Breakfast this morning must have been one of the nicest breakfasts I have ever had.
This for me just seems to be the tip of the iceberg, being the father of 2 teenage daughters, you are always thinking about the future. The Lavender House Hotel appears to cater for weddings / functions to the highest of standards at particularly good value, it is a fantastic venue set in a lovely setting. I would and will definitely stay here again and definitely positively consider for any function that may occur in the future.

I found a fantastic deal for this hotel and thought it must be too good to be true but how wrong was I ? It was fantastic. Clean welcoming and we were so well looked after, the breakfast was lovely and the evening meal was wonderful I would recomend this hotel to anyone we had a lovely room with a view. My husband and I were the only guests there on our last night we had the whole diningroom to ourselves and the owners lit candles all around the returaunt for us how romantic. We then sat in front of a wonderful open log fire for our after dinner drinks what more could you ask for !

Room Tip: We had a wonderful room but did not see the others I can only say they are probably all very nice.

We celebrated our son and daughter-in-laws wedding at the Lavender House. I could not tell you how wonderful the entire weekend was. Keith went out of his way for months prior to the wedding to make sure, the bride and groom got everything they wanted.
The rooms were extremely comfortable and cleanliness was impeccable.
The food was amazing especially the wedding 'breakfast' Every single guest commented on the quality and amount of food we were served.
It was very reasonably priced which had me worrying for a while before the wedding, as I thought the food and service would be reflected in the price. How wrong I was.......

Room Tip: We booked the whole hotel out. All the rooms we lovely, cosy and comfortable

A warm welcome on a cold wet night on Dartmoor. Clean comfortable room and once again warm. Later we were wafted into a beautiful dining room and served an excellent meal. It was so romantic we thought time had stood still but then realised the grandfather clock had stopped!! A fantastic 2day break with such wonderful hosts and local knowledge. We can't wait to go again which is a definate plan as still so much to see and do.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Lavender House, especially the roaring fire kept going by mine host. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and although the wardrobe's knobs hadn't been fitted, this didn't cause any problem at all. Our evening meal was good and breakfast substantial. The owners go out of their way to welcome guests.

We stayed for two nights at the hotel and wish it had been for longer!
It was an ideal location for exploring the area and a great base to come back to.
We started our stay with a brilliant three course meal and the food was excellant with a good variety to choose from. Breakfast set us up for the day and was very tasty.
The hotel had a lovely atmosphere and the toy bears and cats made it very homely!
A fantastic place to stay.
