We stayed in a deluxe king size room for three nights on a mini break with our six month old daughter and cocker spaniel. They are currently renovating the hotel, and are quite open about the fact that this is a work in progress. The...More

We stayed for three nights and the facility's are world class yet retains a local north Devon charm.
Staff are friendly attentive and fun. The owners are committed to delivering outstanding value for money and ensure that you are really well cared for.

Thank you for your review Paul, I would usually urge you to book deluxe next time and enjoy the benefits of a completely refurbished room. However, I find some of your comments very offensive; in particular about fellow guests, so do us both a favour...More

There is a lift to all floors but be aware of steps to ground floor rooms. Unfortunately there are no deluxe single rooms available as yet. We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel - Michael R

Hello John. Thanks for your question. We are refurbishing (not demolishing) 7 out of our 44 bedrooms. This area of work is on the 1st floor and cordoned off from guests. Any significant work occurs between 10h & 16h during the weekday only so you won't experience any work on the Saturday / Sunday planned stay. As I write there is a small skip to the hotel frontage which is being used for waste materials from the building works. All of our facilities, bar, brasserie, library, lounges and so on are available with no disruption to guests at all.
We are very close to the start point of the Coast to Coast route, as you probably know, and frequently host cyclists. We have secure storage for bikes away from the car park plus adequate drying facilities should it be wet. If you wish to speak to us about the works or have any other concerns please call me on 01271 862446 or 07718 936469. And if you book direct with us we can offer a great deal on dinner inclusive rates for the Saturday. I hope that this has answered your query and that we can look forward to you staying with us in October. Best Eliot
