If you want a place to stay where you can just relax the moment you step through the door it's this hotel. Nestled in the Devon countryside, just a stones throw from Dartmoor national park. The welcome is always friendly and the room and food are really good.

Décor and furniture was grubby and cheap, bits were broken. Mattress was unbearably soft. Food was mediocre, in keeping with the venue but £20 for a pub-grade main meal? I don't think so. Staff were helpful and attentive, but miserable, and there is no night porter so for assistance after hours you have to ring the bell and wait for...

Obviously we are disappointed to read this comment. We are usually praised for our decor and comfortable sprung mattresses on our beds. You complained about the bed because your girlfriend had a bad back, if she has a serious back problem you should state this on booking and advise you to do this in future when you grace other hotels...

We went down for our friends wedding. We had a lovely time. The room was very nice and the facilities were very good.The food was of a high standard with the breakfast superb. The wedding set up is very good. A special mention to the owner's Keith and Carol and their wonderful staff who made it an extra special experience.

My husband and I have just enjoyed a 2 night stay here. We had a groupon voucher which provided a cream tea on arrival. This was delicious. My husband doesn't drink tea of coffee and they happily provided an orange juice instead. The place itself is nice and I can see why people could be attracted to it as a...

The Hotel is a bit tired, the decor is dated and slightly tacky. the restaurant is basic but if you are on a budget it's worth a look if just for the views. The gardens are fussy but as this is primarily a budget wedding venue provides lots of photo opportunity. The bridal suit was pretty with a newly refurbished...

We stayed in room 8. It was warm, clean with a great view. We had breakfast and evening meals from an extensive morning and evening menu presented by lovely people. We will definitely go back and would thoroughly recommend this perfect location to anyone, knowing that you will all be treated with the best of customer service.

We have just got back from the Lavender after 2 nights. We were part of a large wedding party who hired the whole hotel for a civil ceremony wedding. The place, the people, the food, the whole thing, BRILLIANT. From start to finish we couldn't have wished for more.... Thank you so much.
