“I was glad to be back”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I drove from Stoke on Trent to The Dartbridge Inn in what can only be described - The Worst Rain Ever - 5 hour journey..
The hotel was welcoming, warm and the Staff all smiling, a very warm greeting from Kes the Manager, yes - I was glad to be back.

Food excellent, service fantastic and the bedroom was warm and welcoming - I made the right choice, its well worth a visit.

Aileen got in early specially to get me n early breakfast, that's what you call Service Plus.- what more can you ask for..
I was a completely satisfied customer...

Room Tip: quieter at the back,

Visited here for a night's stay; from the time I arrived the staff were excellent; friendly and helpful, nothing was too much of a hassle. The room was pleasant and comfortable, a decent size with free WiFi. The bed and shower were fine. I dined in the restaurant in the evening and the food was excellent too. Breakfast was also nice with a cold self service and hot freshly cooked breakfast. The only minor niggles would be that it was a little noisy overnight near the road, and the corridor upstairs looked a bit tatty with a mattress left lying in it. These are the only elements that take it away from a 5* review, The room though offered excellent value overall and I would happily return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road

We only spent one night here recently but found friendly staff, clean rooms and very good breakfast. Our bathroom was in need of an update but I understand that they are hoping to do some works in the future. One very nice touch - a small decorated Christmas tree with lights had been placed in our room!

Firstly we were very lucky to find this pub/hotel on the internet with such a good weekend offer.
Yes the pub is a little tired and in need of a little TLC but the great friendly staff more than made up for that.
Our room was nice and warm and had all the usual facilities. It was also clean but as I said the decor is a bit tired.
Our evening meal was excellent value for money and exceeded our expectations.
Our nights sleep was comfortable and the breakfast was again very good and a decent choice.
We were concerned that we might have picked a duff hotel because of how much it didn't cost us. But we needn't have worried. Well done to all that made our short stay really good.

What a thoroughly enjoyable time seeing in the New Year. Really good fun, food and atmosphere. Thanks to Kes, Kieren and team. Special thanks to Lily for getting the old bones to feel young again – at least for the evening! But as previously mentioned, please will the owners spruce up the place. Look forward to next NY’s evening in twelve months. Jim and Sue

This is near to us and we often go here for a meal but we decided to stay over for New Year as there was an event on. The rooms are fine and very clean and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.
The staff here are very friendly and Kes the Manager has a great team working for him.
This is part of the Old English Inns range and I have stayed I their places before. I would certainly recommend a stay. It is very close to Totnes and Buckfasleigh so people wanting somewhere handy for these places and the A38 to Plymouth or Exeter.
