The first thing we were very happy about was how easy it was to find. We were then greeted by lovely friendly staff. Rooms are nice & clean. Lots of lovely local real ales on tap. The food is fantastic!

Completely by chance we broke our journey here and were immediately made welcome by the friendly staff. The venue and atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We were delighted with the delicious food and the number of people there indicated this is a much sought-after venue. The staff were very helpful and we were sad not to able to spend more... More

Sunday 20th November 2016. 19:30 hours. Busy but a table free for the five of us. Great selection of vegetables and meat! Brilliant refurb! Chef at the carvery was a tad grumpy though. All the other staff were lovely as usual!

The welcome we received on our arrival was very warm and the hotel is very very cosy indeed. We had room 307 which we were shown too...nice touch. The room was nice and clean and the on suite was amazing. Breakfast was brilliant and worth the room rate on its own. Would highly recommend

Most enjoyable and in very relaxing and tastefully revamped accommodation. An excellent carvery, with particularly generous portions of meat [not like some of the meager rations these mean chains give you], lovely vegetables, decent red wine and all served by very courteous and attentive staff. Unreservedly recommended. Parking facilities are excellent and being just a few 100 meters off the... More

Booked in to the Dartmoor Lodge for their delicious carvery! I use this place a lot for eating out.....I've never had a bad eating experience here! We were in for a bit of a surprise this evening as the whole restaurant eating area has had a fantastic revamp......new tables, chairs, carpet.....freshly painted walls. It looks absolutely brilliant, it's been very... More

Great food, prices good too. Would stay again. Main lounge a bit souless, but staff more than made up for that. Good location for us we were house hunting in and around Ashburton. Good range of beers and wine.

I cannot understand how Dusty could criticise this carvery. The meat is always perfectly cooked and the vegetables are always fresh and delicious. It is a measure of how good this carvery is that Dusty couldn't get a table in the main restaurant. We always book a week in advance even in winter. As for the vegetables being tasteless because...
