“Peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We booked a 2 night stay with travelzoo. The cost of the room we paid through them was very good value. The hotel Is set in a remote place with beautiful grounds. Our first impressions were very good. Entering the hotel we were met by a gentleman (sorry should of got his name) who was more than helpful and very friendly. He looked after us well all through our stay. Infact all the staff were excellent and credit to them all. The food they serve is excellent. Our evening meal was perfect and so was breakfast which was cooked to order and the produce the use was tasty. The only tiny bit if criticism I would add is you only get one piece of toast each! The room we had was spacious and well equipped with what we needed. The bathroom could do with some shelving to put your toiletries on though. The kettle in our room was a bit dirty on the outside. We had a lovely patio area from our room and was a real sun trap! If we were paying the full amount for the room at hotel rates I would of expected the patio area to be tidied up a bit.
Overall we had a lovely stay, with exceptional staff, lovely food, set in beautiful grounds. We will go back hopefully again in the near future

Just returned from a 2 day break through Travelzoo. Hotel in the loveliest countryside with picturesque grounds and walks by the river. Our room was spacious and well equipped apart from the bed being rather hard and squeaky. Everywhere was very clean and all the the staff we met were very friendly and helpful.Dinner on the first night was excellent.
The hotel prides itself on breakfasts cooked to order but I would defy anyone to freshly cook bacon to produce anything as dried up as my husband had on both days. Having said that, my omelette and poached eggs were good. The supply of fruit was limited and there were no continental breads, pastries or cheeses.
I would certainly go again if there was a similar offer on at the time but probably not to pay full price.

Room Tip: Room 5 overlooks the lovely gardens but had rather a hard and very squeaky bed

Thank you for your kind words. The bed in room 5 has been re built (it's a 19th century French antique frame so we did not wish to change it) so hopefully next time you come your stay will be even better.

The overall atmosphere & experience was excellent,food was good & varied,mainly the staff were friendly & helpful.the room & ensuite were large & comfortable,with a delightful private patio,the surrounding gardens were a real bonus providing great walks by the river,however the drinks were overpriced,& the cream tea advertised @ £4.95 I think that may have been for the utensils everything else seemed to be extra,although plentiful & delicious,

Just had a lovely three night stay. Rooms and restaurant very clean and whole property well maintained. Staff very pleasant and helpful and food of very good quality in restaurant where we dined on two evenings. Husband and I both vegetarians and very impressed that as we had mentioned this at time of booking a special menu was produced. Only hiccup - on second evening choose pecan pie with smoked surprise - it was a surprise as piece of smoked bacon draped across the dessert! Would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful spot in north Devon, with beautiful beaches about an hours drive away. Would prefer if dogs were not allowed in restaurant at meal times! Booked through travelzoo and excellent deal.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am pleased you were easily catered for; I hope the meals were enjoyable We pride ourselves on being open to all and I was sorry to learn of your point on dogs. We can for the future make arrangements for you to dine away from any pets as we hope to ensure all are accommodated for to the best of our ability.
