“Perfect Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

We held our Daughters wedding at The Lavender House on August 14th.
The organisation and assistance from star to finish was first class.
Most of the stress and hassle was taken away from us as keith offered to organise
almost everything for us.
the day went perfectly again due to great organising and service from Keith,Carol and team even
the weather behaved!!
The hotel provides a perfect setting for any occasion and the food and general service as well as
first class accommodation made our Daughter and new Son-in -Laws day as well as that of all our families and friends
thank you once again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel the views of open countryside are great.

We have recently returned home after a short break at this beautiful hotel. Would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a lovely chilled out break. The food was wonderful and the breakfasts especially where top class. We could only eat the small breakfast there was so much choice. We ended up walking round Paignton just to walk it off. The only negative thing l can say is, we felt some of the areas, especially the dining room could do with a lick of paint, just to brighten it up. But that really is being picky. Will definitely return and will be recommending it to all our friends

Everyone at the hotel was fantastic from the first visit a year ago to book the wedding to the wedding day itself. They made us and our guests feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent, well presented and plenty of it. The value for money was incredible. The organisation of the day was stress free with everything organised so well it was a delight. I cannot recommend this venue enough or give it the credit it is due, as the bride I was made to feel as special as the day was to me.

Room Tip: All the rooms were clean tidy and very comfortable, but the rooms overlooking the gardens were amazi...

Carol and Keith are the most fantastic wedding co-ordinators, we had the most amazing day on 26/07/14. Nothing is too much trouble and they really know how to make your stay super special. The hotel is very comfortable and the grounds are out of this world. Each bedroom is individually decorated so nothing is the same. Haven't got a bad word to say about the whole experience. Thank you Carol and Keith for everything you have done. Would highly recommend it for a wedding or even to just have a relaxing night away.

Room Tip: Have a room facing over the garden to enjoy the views.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in June, in a standard room at the back of the hotel. With a view over the roof to the fields beyond we were lucky enough to see dear and foxes. From the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was spotless, light and airy. Very small grumble, the shower could do with being updated. The breakfasts are unbelievable! We only had the smaller cooked breakfast and only just managed to eat it all. The gardens are very pretty and make for a pleasant stroll. Its very well located for Dartmoor and other local attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front look as if they have a better view of the valley.

Initial problem very quickly sorted, we had a lovely room and the food was excellent albeit the service was very slow. Nice grounds and Terrace with stunning views. But great VFM and would not hesitate to go again.
