I had wanted to try this hotel for a while after staying at another of the Eden group hotels.
I decided to visit for our wedding anniversary and booked a junior suite (room 23). The welcome right from the start is warm and professional with valet parking.
The hotel grounds are amazing and very beautiful set in the heart of Dartmoor and its own 18 hole golf course.
Our room was large, specious and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable as well. The little touches make the difference like the complimentary sloe gin, nuts, water and apples.
We booked the Great Western resturant for dinner on our first night and so glad we did. The service is true silver service and the food is gorgeous. We had the rabbit and Serrano ham starter then the Beef Wellington which was almost perfect. The dinning room is lovely and again the little touches like the complimentary canapés which come to you while you are having your pre dinner drinks in the piano bar.
The swimming pool is good and the gym is adequate. There is also an ESPA spa.
All in all highly recommended and if you want somewhere special then this is the place. It is not cheap but I would say good value.
We will return.
