The Old Rectory Hotel

Reviewed 7 September 2010

After a very busy season at work, I wanted to take my boyfriend away for a relaxing weekend in North Devon. We both love the outdoors and wanted somewhere which was relaxing but with plenty of walks and places to see.

The Hotel itself is located in beautiful surroundings and offers the most amazing scenery and local beaches (Putsborough was our favorite!). The coastal walks were fantastic, and we spend hours out and about exploring the countryside.

Service at the hotel was excellent, very friendly and helpful and really made to feel at home. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. I would highy reccomend booking dinner, bed & breakfast as the homemade cooking is delicious and vegetables are used straight from the garden..perfect.

Will definately be returning, this is the pefrect getaway if you are looking to be spoilt and enjoy the outdoors.

From the moment we arrived, we felt so comfortable. The warmthof the welcome, the comfy rooms, the wonderful food - all just added to the magic of our stay. Huw and Sam are perfect hosts and have a tremendous eye for detail. From the egyptian cotton sheets on the beds to the Riedel glasses for the fine wines - nothing is too much trouble. The setting is magical - very quiet - but with easy access to great coastal walks. The gardens are beautifully maintained and well stocked. Huw is a wonderful chef and makes great use of local produce on their menus - both at breakfast and dinner. We felt well and truly pampered by the end of our stay - and can't wait to return soon.

I can't fault this hotel. Staying at The Old Rectory was the end of a trip to France/Spain/UK from Australia and it was the absolute highlight of my whole trip. I stayed there with my elderly mother and Huw & Sam made a fuss of her and made us both very welcome. The food, service, rooms etc are excellent and the local area is simply stunning. I shall definitely return.

The remote area, the garden, the eclectic decorated house, the magic dinners and most of all the two owners who run the place with professionalism and dedication will catch you in a web of magic you will not be able to escape from.
And what they served were not dinner, but almost of
Unfortunately we stayed there only 2 nights – we have to come back to enjoy this surreal experience.

This was my first visit to North Devon and we could not have stayed in a more perfect hotel.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the attention to detail is second to none.
I was anxious about staying here as it is very intimate, I thought it would be too imposing, but Huw and Sam are the perfect hosts!
Even when I managed to lock the bathroom door without being inside, they made me feel completely comfortable.
Breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea - you must try them all! Food is fabulous as well as Sam's advice on choice of wine.
Will definitely be back again !

W stayed for 3 nights, the place is quiet, in a beautiful setting, with gardens to relax in, the food was tremendous, breakfast and dinner, not to be missed. Only 8 bedrooms so very intimate if you want it to be. The standard of design and cleanliness was perfect.

Staying here was such a relaxing experience and towards the end of the weekend you realised how much more energy you had. A brilliant combination maybe due to the good food, the peaceful atmosphere conducive to a good night's sleep, the friendly but not obtrusive hosts or something more indefinable. Whatever it is it works!
