We stayed in December, a group of us of all ages and had a brilliant time. The owners are naturally welcoming and create a homely atmosphere in a very pretty little hotel. There are fires going, books and magazines to read, lots of sofas, sweet little bar and so much of interest, including some great art on the walls. Super-comfy beds - ours was ViSpring - tons of hot water, all v cosy and warm. It's a place to meet people, to mix, to hang out, a place for all weathers and for all ages. Thank you Richard and Sheila - you do a brilliant job and I know why so many people love it here.

We stayed here in late September for a weekend and had a wonderful time. we had an incredibly warm welcome and were very well looked after. The breakfast was huge and delicious. The atmosphere enormously relaxing and totally un-corporate and hence very refreshing. If you are expecting branded goods and slick PR led "hospitality" this may not be the place for you. If you want to stay somewhere welcoming and relaxing here it is..

Given that Fingals is described as a peaceful haven of relaxation we were rather shocked and quite upset to discover a building site directly on the doorstep of our self-catering accommodation.

A roof construction was being carried out directly opposite which meant that we were subjected to drilling, banging and sawing on a daily basis, not conducive to the relaxation and peace we were seeking and expecting,or how the ambience is described on the website. We did voice our concerns and said we were not happy and the owners did apologise and agree to start at 10:00am instead of 9:00am. However the apology did not detract from the fact that not only did we have look out on to an eyesore, but we had three men on a roof who could look directly into our barn,whilst making one hell of a racket !!

Am I missing something here or would it not have been common courtesy to have warned us prior to our arrival, so we could have at least had the choice to find a more peaceful alternative??? I can't comprehend how this lack of consideration towards our comfort was deemed acceptable.

The builders appeared to also be staying at Fingals so clearly this project had been in the planning for a while. Surely it would be wise to close the establishment whilst building work is being carried out rather then take guest's money under false pretences.

Room Tip: When booking please check that a building project is not underway!

We have just returned from a perfect weekend at Fingals with friends. Everything from the gorgeous chocolate brownies on arrival to breakfast as we left was perfect, it all lived up to the promise of a home away from home, we will definitely be back. Thank you Richard & Sheila and Leaf the dog!!

We had the pleasure of having a 5 day trip in this most oustanding secluded hotel in Diddisham in Devon. On arriving Sheila & Richard made the three of us (my husband and Archie the dog) most welcome. I have to say its a breath of fresh air to stay in a truly eclectic place where the pace of life is relaxed laid back and you have NO mobile phone signal. I never thought I could live without a mobile but the week was bliss. Breakfast was when you decided to wake up in the morning. There was no cleaners trying to get into your room or hoovering around outside the door. The evenings were spent sitting in front of the fire and we had two truly outstanding meals cooked by Richard which were 'second to none'. We will be back. If you need to chill and relax then the laid back approach of Fingals is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Actually the second night we had the small hotel to ourseleves so we had a good look around. I woul...

We stayed two nights in Fingals with friends - their first visit though we've stayed several times before. Our friends had the stunning Stream Room, an oak barn construction overlooking the stream. We had the spacious Room 1 for the first night and rather cramped Room 3 on the second. Fingals is a great place to unwind - you are made to feel like a house guest. Comfy sofas, an honesty bar, dogs and cats, roaring log fires. I recommend having dinner at the communal table - we joined two other couples who were together plus a third couple and were soon [after a glass of good wine] getting on like a house on fire. The food is good, as is the service. There's plenty to help you chill - an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, billiards, tennis net on the lawn, billiards, a tv/cinema room, library and art gallery next door. It's not cheap, but well worth the value. The owners, Richard and Sheila, are very laid back - my wife and I always joke whether they will remember us on our next visit [guess the answer!]. Fingals is seemingly in hte middle of nowhere - stunning Dittsham is a lovely 20 minute walk away.

Room Tip: The Stream Room and Folly are amazing
