We came for a Wedding Celebration of our friends and then stayed on to celebrate our own twelfth wedding anniversary completely on the spur of the moment. Absolutely loved the whole experience, very friendly and helpful staff, superb food, glorious surroundings, good walks and stunning views.

Been to the place twice in the last month. The full english breakfast was good, but thought it was not anything spectacular. didn't think b'fast was value for money. The dinner was however fantastic. Great detail, well presented, well cooked and good value for money. Great setting for a walk around the estate during spring/summer.

The dining room is light and airy. The menu is varied with lots of seasonal dishes. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was ok but nothing special. With a little bit more effort this could be excellent.

Our party visited the hotel and restaurant for a Murder Mystery. What we saw of the hotel was lovely and our meal was delicious, served by patient staff who had to attend to the diners while negotiating actors and a lot of excitement. The entertainment was excellent. The only thing that was rather unfortunate was the lack of welcome and... More

Went for lunch at 1230 on a Friday in December. It was not especially busy. Surprisingly there was a small party there that had come for their special cream tea. Although we were the first in the restaurant, we were not the first to be served. We ordered our drinks, and the waitress took our order from the menu. The... More

Well - what can I say. From start to finish I have nothing but admiration for the staff and the venue. We arrived early (before the official check in time) but our room was ready and waiting. Following the blessing in nearby Yealmpton we were greeted back at the Hotel with a selection of drinks - gin &a tonic, sparkling... More

From the moment we first contacted Kitley House Hotel, all the staff that we came into contact with seemed to share our enthusiasm for our special day. Nothing was too much trouble at all stages of planning the event, obviously very experienced, and they gently guided us through the planning and reminded us of the usual protocols to be observed....

The approach road from the main gate is long and very rough with a number of pot holes; when you finally arrive at the Hotel it is imposing but rather drab grey.
