        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          lovely comfortable room with a great view of surrounding countryside. A great full english breakfast included in the price. A good locaton for visiting coastal resorts, Seaton, Beer, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          Family get together

          1) Was mis-booked for the wrong day. Five minutes of considerable worry as it seemed we would not get rooms on the day we arrived. 2) Was kept awake until after 00.30 by the band for a wedding dance in the opposite corner of the hotel 3) Was awoken in the early hours by an argument outside my room between two participants in the wedding.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Friendly comfortable and excellent food and drink facilities

          Car Park could be better arranged in the annex area when there is several functions on as there was on Wednesday 6th July. I lived on my nerves that my new car was going to get hit as cars were pouring in and as it was full trying to reverse out.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Friendly & excellent staff. Comfortable beds. Quite a homely hotel. Well situated in a very pretty village.

          Nothing - suited us admirably

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          I am rather upset at the fact that I was not informed at the time I booked the 2 nights at the Hotel that there would be a very loud Disco on, on the 1st night we were staying there.After driving 350 miles to get there we expected to be able to go to bed and sleep at a reasonable hour, In fact the very loud Disco went on until 1.05 the next morning, we tried to phone the fromt desk at 11pm - 11.30pm 12.00 midnigbt and 12.30am but there was no reply!! I leave you to come to your own conclusions!! This is a very nice Hotel and I think that when there is to be very loud entertainment until the early hours of the morning then people who are intending to stay there should be informed at the time of booking - Gordon Tate .

        • Single

          I would particularly commend the warm welcome of the staff on what was for rthem a very busy day

          When I booked the room thro' booking .com I was congratulated on securing the last room at the special rate of £70pd as against the usual rate of £90. However when I paid the bill I was charged £90 but unfortunately did not realise this until we were on our way

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Answers based on feedback from friends (Gabriel family)who actually stayed there (3 rooms). They are very used to International travel and Hotels and expressed great satisfaction with their stay.

          Could the roadside exterior be brightened up somehow?

        • Couple
          6.2

          The bathroom had been re fitted.

          The hotel itself is write dated in appearance. It is certainly not for the younger generation with the decor still quite old in the communal areas. The staff were all a little bit older too. It did feel a bit like an old people's home once or twice.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          I liked the breakfast and the beds. In the morning you go down and you order anything you want, cooked and there is tea and coffee, cereal and juices. The beds are really comfy! I slept like a plank.
