Breakfast is EXTRA. Room is small. Old soap bar in shower. Price seems too high given there is no breakfast. Want payment before you stay. Never ate in restaurant. I would stay elsewhere if service matters. If all you want is a room that is basic and the service poor this is your place. If not there are nicer real...

I have stayed at Chi previously in September last year, and as far as I am concerned the best for accommodation,service, and food in the area. Once again I stayed solo for three nights from 01/04/2014. Great service with friendly staff. A great room, clean, tidy, and well equipped with a 32 inch wall mounted TV set. The food was...

Three of us stayed here for one night. The restaurant is an old cottage type building with a pretty garden where it must be lovely to sit and have drinks in the summer. The rooms were en suite, well furnished, spacious, comfortable and clean and represented very good value for money at £64 for a double and £45 for a...

I wanted to stay in Devon for a few days so a room with en suite at a restaurant should have been perfect. Good things first: room was clean & tidy...sorry, that's it. We notified them in advance that we wouldn't be arriving until mid-evening on a Monday but nobody bothered to tell us that the restaurant is closed on...

Firstly, I would like to apologise for your wait upon arrival. As we are a small business, we are unable to provide staff waiting at the reception at all times, unless during opening hours. The front door is usually locked whilst we are closed. Guests arriving to check in, are able to ring the door bell for prompt service. Unfortunately...
