“For old time sake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2011

Yesterday I returned to Lavender house, formally known as the Grass Hopper after 30 years. This time I booked the family room for myself and two sons and a single room for a very good friend. I now live in New Zealand (www.sealimousines.com) and returned to visit family and friends.
Two more friends joined us for a very enjoyable evening in the comfy setting and we all really enjoyed a very tasty meal, with ample portions and a proper sundau, heaped with real fruit and quality ice cream.

The rooms are large and we had a stunning Dartmoor view with the gardens below. There was quality bedding which felt so crisp and fresh, much appreciated after a tiring trip. The owners love their animals and I enjoyed a cuddle with their friendly cat.

All I ask for in accommodation is cleanliness, comfort and friendly staff, I got it all, thank you so much for a wonderful stay and I wish you every success in the future.

Very enjoyable stay, very good secluded location but easily accessible to several towns and villages and amenities. Free parking available. Lovely country styled rooms, full modern facilities. Lovely lounge, bar and dining areas with beautifully kept gardens.

Exceptionally warm, helpful and friendly staff provided an excellent service throughout.

Breakfast was exceptional with a lot of choice and staff who were willing to cater for our every need.

Will definitely visit again, had a superb time!!

This hotel is one of the most friendly hotels I have ever stopped in. extremely clean and fantastic value for money. Free wifi with full speed even in your room.Food was fantastic and the gardens and surroundings are beautiful. In fact I told the owner I have stopped in more expensive travel inns with not as good service. I will certainly stop here again and recommend to my friends and colleagues.

Although on business it was a pleasure staying here. The family do everything they can to make your stay a very comfortable one. Kindly posted some items back I had been daft enough to leave behind!

This is not a full review, but a comment on a one-night stay. I was there with my elderly mother and the hotel staff were all as helpful as can be. She stayed in the ground floor room, which was perfect for her: level access, very warm, a good walk-in shower and a comfortable bed. We had a delicious evening meal there too.
