Visited with my husband for a child-free weekend and had a lovely relaxing weekend. Warm welcome from reception staff. Our double room was great, everything clean and in great condition. The spa looked pretty new and was clean and well maintained and a very relaxing experience. The highlight of our weekend was dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was worthy...

Came here yesterday with my partner, what a lovely birthday surprise!! The spa was amazing - I especially loved the hydro pool. Both me and my partner had a massage, which was fantastic, so relaxing. The food was also good in 'Blue Tiger'. We came away feeling re-charged and very relaxed :) we will definitely be returning!

My husband and I recently spent the night at the Ilsington Country House Hotel for our wedding anniversary and we made a great choice. The location is just perfect - peaceful and relaxing although we actually live not that far from the Hotel we felt like we were a million miles away from the rush and chaos of our usual...

We arranged our wedding ceremony with the hotel, after visiting for a Sunday Lunch and being thoroughly impressed. Richard Hassell took the time to understand exactly what we required, providing some interesting suggestions from his obvious experience. We held our wedding ceremony and evening do in a lovely room towards the rear of the hotel, where we had access to...

We had a relaxing 3 night break with our two dogs, with maps of local walks and dog treats provided. The grounds are peaceful and great for a stroll, and the hens looked happy. We liked the Blue Tiger pub/eaterie and the vegetarian choices were well prepared and interesting. The picture windows in the breakfast room/restaurant had great Dartmoor views.All...

The four of us had a specific reason to travel from Dorset to Devon so could only stay one night but do wish to return as a four or as separate couples and spend more time. We loved the grounds and the distant views. The rooms were comfortable and we had a good rapport with the staff. We enjoyed the...

We went for lunch yesterday, Sunday 11th October, we were disappointed to start by the limited menu, the choice of the main course were 2 roasts, a fish dish, and a vegetarian option. The roast potatoes were just hot and tasted warmed up. The starter I ordered was a smoked salmon dish, but there was no smoked salmon! My partner...

Dear Jena, Thank you for taking the time to write and we are sorry that the lunch was a disappointment. In the Restaurant on Sundays our 3-course menu (£21.50) has a choice of four starters, four main courses and fiver desserts. Your starter was a smoked salmon panna cotta and the smoked salmon was integrated within the dish (rather than...

We stayed in a de-luxe room overlooking the beautiful view. The grounds of the Hotel are spectacular, even have chickens etc in an enclosure roaming around., We were fortunate with the weather so had views of Haytor as well. We had a lovely welcome-all the staff are very friendly and the Hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The lounges have...

A traditional hotel on the southern edge of Dartmoor set in lovely well kept grounds. The decoration in places is a bit old world and could do with updating and the layout a bit confusing, however the hotel was spotless. We ate in the Blue Tiger and the food was superb and with a good selection of drinks available. (the...
