What a beautiful place, so very peaceful and with very attentive service. The room, The Lavender Suite, is absolutely superb with four poster bed, semi-circular end windows with French doors onto a sizeable balcony overlooking beautiful, well-tended gardens. The bathroom is sumptuous with bath and walk in massage shower, complete with mood lighting and illuminated floor! The food is delicious...

The setting was idyllic with wonderful views over towards Dartmoor and the gardens were beautifully stocked and very peaceful. The family of hoteliers were very friendly and the breakfasts absolutely scrumptious with lots of choice. The hotel itself was very comfortable. tastefully decorated...

If you want a place to stay where you can just relax the moment you step through the door it's this hotel. Nestled in the Devon countryside, just a stones throw from Dartmoor national park. The welcome is always friendly and the room and food are really good.

Décor and furniture was grubby and cheap, bits were broken. Mattress was unbearably soft. Food was mediocre, in keeping with the venue but £20 for a pub-grade main meal? I don't think so. Staff were helpful and attentive, but miserable, and there is no night porter so for assistance after hours you have to ring the bell and wait for...

Obviously we are disappointed to read this comment. We are usually praised for our decor and comfortable sprung mattresses on our beds. You complained about the bed because your girlfriend had a bad back, if she has a serious back problem you should state this on booking and advise you to do this in future when you grace other hotels...
