“Wow!!! Amazing Hotel and Restaurant”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

I have never written a review but I just had to say this Hotel and Restaurant is and absolute Gem! The staff, location, ambience, food, rooms all are fantastic. Huge praise to the young chef with a passion for puddings that was the best Chocolate Brownie I have ever tasted and believe me I have tried lots! Thankyou we have really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to have an excuse to return!

We stayed at The Edgemoor for a two day break. We had booked online and after booked were contacted by the hotel to see if we wanted to attend the murder dinner on Saturday night. We hesitated and called back and said we would and that was the right decision, we had a fabulous night and to top it off even Anne Widdecome had a table of friends so we thought this should be a good night, the food, staff and atmosphere was brilliant I would do it again. We spent our second night walking over Dartmoor and returned and again had dinner in the restaurant and again another great meal. The hotel was an old school and there are suggestions of this around we had to pick our brains to try and guess the actors dressed as teachers in the bar"only one we could not get" .

We will definatley be staying again keep u the good work

We've visited five times this year. this last time we were confident enough to take friends. Most helpful manager (beyond the call of duty). All the staff are delightful. The food is excellent. Cleanliness throughout, as ex-hoteliers we appreciate value for money. Ideally situated for the moors. Dog friendly rooms available with nice touches like dog blanket, towel and food/water mats provided.

We will be back.

We stayed for 2 nights in a double room in the 'Classroom Block' - the bed was a 'Super King' and the room was well appointed with nice touches. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent. We had a 'Cream Tea' on arrival in garden. I would recommend this hotel for a long weekend, Dartmoor. Exeter, and the Devon Coast are within easy reach. The Hotel is family owned and the staff work hard to make your stay a memorable experience.

Room Tip: Dogs are welcome and the 'Classroom Block' is ideal being on the ground floor with direct ac...

We only spent one night at the Edgemoor County House Hotel as a stopover on the way to Cornwall and found the hotel on booking.com at a very reasonable price for bed and breakfast. It is a lovely hotel and we were not disapointed, our room was one of the woodlands rooms with its own entrance at the back via the gardens. The room and bathroom was very clean, the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order, evening meal was lovely we did not have enough room left for a sweet....
The staff were very friendly and attentive, we were able to check in early than expected as the room was ready when we arrived. If we are ever in the area again we will most definately stay there again

A small cosy hotel with adequate rooms. Very clean and comfortable beds. For a quiet retreat away from it all, but vlose enough to enjoy the trips around the area.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The dining room is small but enough room to keep quiet conversation. A good beer and wine choice and not overly expensive. However, the evening meal was dissapointing and expensive. I felt a little patronised by a meal not being what was promised with a few chefs unofficial "alterations". But, there is always somewhere else to eat, or be ready to make sure you get what you ordered.
Would I stay agin? Very much yes!!!

Room Tip: All Quiet rooms, no problems.

Fabulous building and the food excellent not a big platefull but more than enough. Staff very helpful and friendly. Stover golf course 5 mins away so hotel was an excellent location. Would be brilliant for a romantic break. If you could give a hotel 10 stars this would get it. Bonus of free wifi. The only down side was limited tv channels, but quite a common problem in a lot of hotels.
