“70th birthday party lunch”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

3 generations of the family were very well looked after, excellent food and service in wonderful settings. If anyone is thinking of hosting a birthday party for a grand parent and want to be able to enjoy the day yourself and have happy children then I can highly recommend coming here. We all had a dip in the pool to make it a memorable and very special family day. A group family photo with Haytor in the background will give my father many happy memories in years to come. Thank you.

The hotel is in a very green area and is very comfortable. The whole place is relaxing and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

If you are after some peace and quiet, this is the best place to go. Have never felt so relaxed and at peace: clean air, no noise, no city bustle.

My brother In-law and wife had their wedding reception at the hotel. The hotel is situated on the edge of Dartmoor in a lovely location, on arrival we all received a warm welcome. There was 15 of us in the party we had a 3 course meal and drinks. The service and food was excellent, all members of staff look after use all day. My sister in-law and husband stay there for 2 nights and praised the hotel.

We stayed here as a treat to ourselves after a busy biking weekend on dartmoor, it did not disappoint. Fabulous situation, gorgeous surroundings, friendly welcoming staff, lovely lovely good in the blue tiger inn and the most enormous, huge comfortable bed. And the spa was just what we needed too. Really enjoyable, lovely treat.

We booked on the Friday of the bank holiday weekend as we wanted to camp but where worried about the weather. Stayed from the Saturday to the Monday.

Found the hotel using trip advisor and the other reviews are correct

Great location with lovely and helpful stay.

We eat in the restaurant and at the bar . We enjoyed the bar food more. This is in no way a reflection on the restaurant as the food there was great.

However the hotel smoke there own meat and salmon and if your into this it's very good .
They also do a fondue which is pretty rare in the UK so put the two together and we where very happy.

We have paid much more for a hotel like this in the past and never wanted to return.

Here we hope to return at the first chance we get espically as I had forgotten how beautifull Dartmoor is.

Big well done to the management and staff of the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10 and it was clean and the bed was good for us. Buy the way the musllie bar thi...

I had read about the Ilsington Country House Hotel in the Lady magazine and decided that it sounded perfect for a long weekend break. And indeed it was.
My husband and I arrived for our Easter weekend special on Friday morning and although we were early, the welcoming receptionist directed us to the lovely Blue Tiger bar where we had a really nice lunch.
Our room (16) was large and comfortable with everything we needed (tea makings and delicious flapjacks). The bathroom was spotless.
Our room overlooked the front of the hotel to the gardens and we had wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. If we had stayed in high summer, the chat from the terrace below might have been disturbing with an open window. We plan to return in the summer so will request rooms at the back of the hotel overlooking the lovely hens with luck.
The food was really excellent with enough choice to keep it interesting over the three days we were there. I commend the chef on the fabulous banana caramel rice pudding. I would have eaten that every day if it had been on the menu - yum!
We highly recommend this hotel for the lovely staff - each and every one of them, the food, the comfortable room, the fabulous location, did I mention the food?

Room Tip: The views are wonderful on either side of the hotel but the rooms at the back may be quieter in the...
