Tor Royal is a beautiful property located in the middle of the breathtaking moors. This was a bit of a splurge for us, but it was absolutely worth it (especially since I wanted to go riding on the moors).
We were upgraded from the Lilly to the Wallace room due to some booking issue, and the room was gorgeous. It looked over the gardens to one side and the fields full of horses to the other. Justine and her daughter made everything very comfortable, and even brought up fresh milk for tea and coffee on our first night. Breakfast was lovely, and the town of Princetown (just a 5 minute walk away) has some great pubs for lunch and dinner.
Our only complaint was that we had booked a horse trek in advance, but because my partner booked the room and I e-mailed about the horses (under a different surname), they assumed we weren't coming for the ride and made plans for the day, so we had to be squeezed into a shorter ride at the last minute. It all worked out perfectly, and the ride was outstanding, but we were a little frustrated that despite countless e-mails back and forth, they had simply disregarded our correspondence because the surnames didn't automatically match.
All in all, this was a great place to stay, and a wonderful home base for exploring Dartmoor.
