“Happy New Year - Happy Every Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

We have just returned from The Poplars, having enjoyed seeing in the New Year with our fantastic hosts Jean & Cliff, and some of the friends we have made over the years we have been staying there.Our stay was one happy event from start to finish. We cannot recommend Cliff & Jean and the Poplars highly enough. The effort that is put into making your stay both enjoyable and memorable is evident from the moment you arrive and see the amount of work they have put in to decorating the hotel in the festive theme. From then on your stay is just one bundle of fun. We have been given a start to a happy new year, but then all the time we can look forward to staying at the Poplars, we are happy every year.

Stayed here for two nights in October this year, whilst attending a wedding in the area. So glad I chose Poplars. Lovely room, comfy bed, very clean and well kept, and an awesome breakfast! I was also dealt with very accommodatingly when I arrived very late Friday, and alternative arrangements were quickly arranged when a friend had to change his arrival date.

All in all an excellent experience which kept me well rested and well fed, and at a very reasonable price. Sadly it was a bit cold for the swimming pool!

A good time was had by us yet again. We have been coming for five years and each time gets better. Lovely homely meals cooked by Jean eaten in the beautiful dining room plus plenty of entertainment provided by Cliff in the bar. We have our savings tins which we are filling up for our next visit when we hope to meet up our new friends again.

Another fantastic stay with Jean and Cliff - as we stepped through the front door of The Poplars we instantly felt that we had returned "home" as we always do. Our long weekend went all too quickly but the feeling of having been cosseted and entertained remains. As always, every meal home-cooked by Jean was delicious and the evenings spent in Cliff's bar were such fun. Our room, with balcony, and views to the Bay was warm and comfortable - so cosy. We are already booked in for the New Year's extravaganza and are looking forward to being back in Coombe Martin. At Cliff's suggestion we visited Porlock Harbour - what "awesome" scenery as you travel down Porlock Hill! Surely, there is little better anywhere on our planet? Thank you again, Jean and Cliff - see you after Christmas...

Room Tip: Balcony rooms (with private outside seating) overlooking the pool have wonderful views of the Bay an...

My wife Shirley and I were fortunate enough to be invited to one of our best friends 50th birthday celebrations at the Poplars hotel a few weeks ago. We arrived a little later than the rest of the party and were greeted by Cliff & Jean who can only be described as a genuinely lovely couple. Within minutes we were made to feel at home and shown to one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. The room was immaculately presented and had a brilliant balcony which over looked Combe Martin bay. What a tremendous weekend! First class company in a first class hotel, who could ask for more? Many Thanks, we would love to revisit during the summer months and take a dip in the pool before diner. .

We have been here a few times now and celebrated my husbands 50th birthday last weekend with family and friends.

Always good food and hospitality from Jean and Cliff. Hotel is spotlessly clean and nothing is too much trouble from two lovely people. Our weekend was made very very special.

Can't wait for our next visit.

Kick off your shoes and bring your slippers!! The Poplars Hotel is home from home (and more), a little gem nestling on the North Devon coast. Cliff and Jean combine to form the perfect partnership, Cliff with his quick wit, anecdotes and love of music (ask him to perform his bottles routine) and Jean whose culinary skills are second to none (check out the cheesy pork). English food at it's very best. You arrive at The Poplar Hotel as guests and leave as longlife friends. Long may you reign!!

Room Tip: If you have a disability, the second floor rooms can be a problem, but Cliff is only too willing to...
