“Excellent food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

An extensive menu, all home made. Excellent value. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Good atmosphere.
Didn't stay here just had a bar meal. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this traditional pub over a weekend to attend my brother's Wedding on 16th June 2012. It has 4 bedrooms. We stayed in "Lauren's Room", a twin room on the side of the hotel with a lovely big shower. It was spotlessly clean, there were extra blankets if required. The breakfasts were delicious, all freshly cooked to order and the toast was proper bread! I have eaten in the pub previously, always very good. We had actually organised a family meal prior to the wedding in the skittle alley, they catered perfectly for us. The staff are a credit to the owner, Joan. Thank you!

We stayed in The Feathers on 11th, 12th and 13th May 2012 to attend a surprise birthday party and couldn't find fault in our stay. All the staff were very helpfull and food was excellent and well presented . The room we were given "The Lounge" was comfortable, clean and well laid out with a large en suite. Well worth the money and will no doubt be staying there again when we visit friends.

My husband and I together with my husbands parents chose to have a meal at The Feathers on a Saturday evening. A nice family came and sat at the next table with ther dog. We were very shocked to see a dog in an eating area but accepted that we were in a rural area and hoped the dog would be well behaved,unfortunately the arrival of more dogs proved our concerns were correct. Suddenly we were no longer at a restaurant, we were at a kennels with dogs growling and barking and owners trying to hold there dogs back. We asked the bar staff if we could have another table but there were none available,so decided to go elsewhere. The landlady explained that as they had started cooking our starters we would have to pay for it even if we didnt eat it. Her justification was there were signs on the front of the pub and the website stating that dogs were welcome. Neither is true, apart from a small sign inside the pub which asks owners to keep there dogs on leads,which isn't much help when you book over the phone. I suggest in future when customers book a table the landlady informs them that they may be sharing there meal with dogs. We will not be returning EVER? On the plus side we did have a lovely meal elsewhere minus barking dogs, so the evening was not a total waste

We were very happy with our stay at The Feathers Hotel. We booked a last minute room for a New Years Eve get away. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The pub staff and land lady - Joan were really friendly and we had a perfect night partying in the new year at The Feathers. Thanks Joan and the friendly locals.

We stay here once or twice a year. Yes, it is rooms above a pub but they are very clean and the beds are comfortable. The shower is good and the breakfast very nice. There was not too much noise from the pub downstairs. There is free internet access but it is a bit patchy.

The Feather is a good traditional pub with skittle alley, public and lounge bars. The food is good and the atmosphere friendly. Joan, the owner, works very hard as do her staff. She has always been friendly and hospitable to us.

Like the previous poster I do think it is unfair for a review to be published by someone who has never stayed. Yes, there may have been a mixup over the booking but, with so few reviews the TA rating for this hotel will be affected unfairly.

The Feathers is not a 4 star hotel, nor does it pretend to be. It is comfortable, unpretentious and friendly. Rooms at the back are a bit quieter than the front because of morning noise from the high street. At night it is very quiet. We have stayed at the Feathers for Bank Holidays and New Years Eve where the atmosphere is great and the whole pub pours out into the street for Auld Lang Syne accompanied by violin and accordion!

Room Tip: The front room is the most spacious. The back rooms are quieter in the mornings.

The Feathers Hotel is by far my favourite Place to stay in Budleigh possibly even Devon,
I was upset to read the reviews given by Surrey Girl (who has never even been there!) mum1958, and Carolemay59! It all seems a bit of a witch hunt really to blacken the name
of a quality establishment. My girlfriend and I have stayed at the feather on a number of occasions and received excellent customer service every time. The Staff give a warm friendly service and the land lady is always willing to go that extra mile! I have stayed is all three rooms which are very clean with excellent facilities and the breakfast is amazing !!!!
I would recommend the Feathers to anybody !!!!!!
