“Beutiful setting but perhaps better value as a day trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2009

I stayed at the hall for one night and must say, the building and gardens are without a doubt stunning. Its a shame that the accommodation doesn't quite match up to the surroundings. The bedrooms I believe were once part of a monastery so the small-ish size and slightly odd layout can be forgiven. For £85 a night however, once inside the room you didn't really get a lot for your money. Although clean, the bathroom suite was very dated as were the bedroom furnishings. Some rooms didn't actually have an en-suit bathroom which meant a trip across the hallway to use the shower and toilet. We had to ask for another kettle for the room as the one already in there was black inside with mould and was missing its lead. Breakfast was included in the price, there was a very good selection and the food was good quality. Lastly, although I would not necessarily recommend this as a place to stay, its definitely worth a day visit.

What a beautiful little gem in the middle of Devon. Food was great, Service was great, Staff were brilliant, Location was great, Gardens were amazing, it felt like we had stepped back in time! The rooms could do with updating as they are looking a bit tired, but otherwise we had a gorgeous stay.
