After seeing the pictures on the website, I thought I would fork out the 100 odd quid to book this place as a treat. I followed the advice of some other users to book room 3 as that is their best room. As I called up on the phone to arrange a booking, the lady was rude and harshly cut the line off after getting impatient. I tried calling back but she put the phone down on me again.

I did not expect such rudeness from a hotel like this. Avoid at all costs.

Stayed at Ness House recently for one night with my 2 sons during a walking holiday. Decided to stay at Ness House as we had eaten there before and were impressed with the food. Staying there was a different and extremely disappointing experience.

Despite having booked months in advance we were given a room in an out-building at the back of the car park. This room was supposedly £135 B&B per night for the three of us. This room was surely old staff accommodation converted for paying guests. The bedroom door opened straight onto the car park. The room was cramped and horrible. It had a dated kitchen area in one corner (surely old staff accommodation) and a bathroom which was damp and smelly with black mould around the sink pedestal and bath front. The room had a double bed and a cheap uncomfortable small sofabed. The sofabed was not made up. When I called reception I was advised to look in a cupboard for bedding. I had to insist that the bed was made up whilst we were out at dinner. They were reluctant to do this telling me they "might not have the staff".

We were provided with only 2 bath towels for the three of us, another call to reception, and one small tube of shower gel, another call to reception. The water pressure was so low it was impossible to shower, and took 20 mins to run a bath.

I agreed a reduction to £100 for the room and breakfast. I still think that was too much to pay and i would not recommend this hotel at all.

Went for a birthday meal, the food was excellent with very good staff who could not have done more. Can't wait to return to Devon and more important to eat again at the Ness House Hotel.

We only went for mother's day lunch but, as usual, the standard was very high and the staff coped admirably with a restaurant that was full to capacity. The owners of the hotel chain appear to think that bedecking their menus, walls, floors, napkin rings and staff with foodie themed Latin quotations ad nauseam adds to the dining experience. Personally I'd have preferred slightly larger portions and a little less pretentiousness. Excellent food nonetheless.
