Four of us stayed for a weekend break. Comfortable rooms and the food in the restaurant was really good with a wide selection. Staff throughout were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. For a weekend break a real gem.

We needed a coffee and stopped at Dartmoor Lodge with fairly low expectations. It turned out to be a real find, very comfortable, very friendly, 4 local real ales, We'll be making the same trip several times and will stop there every time.

Met some friends here for lunch. Friendly, welcoming staff and extensive menu. Food was delicious especially the chips! We all had something different to eat and the chef was very obliging when one of our friends not sure if she would like the sauce asked for it to be served separately.

Walking into a deserted reception I must confess I was worried. The decor was very tired although apparently recently refurbished. The walls had holes from raw plugs and it wasn't showing it's "best face". We had booked in for their "Murder Mystery Evening" and we included a room for the night. The bar area was homely and welcoming and they...

My grandparents stay at this location 3 or 4 times a year and each time they return, they have nothing but praise.

My wife and I chose this hotel as we were travelling to Ashburton for the memorial service of a friend. He was a former Royal Marine and a number of us (all former Royal Marines) were attending and travelling from around the country. We defended the Falklands and South Georgia in 1982 so we are all 'knocking' on a bit...

We are sorry to see your review on trip advisor. We know that you discussed the situation with two of our managers on Saturday morning, and that as a gesture of good will we did not charge you at all for the nights accommodation. As residents the law does allow us to serve alcohol until any reasonable hour, with this...

Completely by chance we broke our journey here and were immediately made welcome by the friendly staff. The venue and atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We were delighted with the delicious food and the number of people there indicated this is a much sought-after venue. The staff were very helpful and we were sad not to able to spend more...
