“Excellent Country House Hotel”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Arundel Arms and would thoroughly recommend it.

The hotel is situated in the little village of Lifton, the hotel has a traditional stone front but is now accessed by an entrance from the car park.

The main hotel is very traditional country house with large open fires in most of the public rooms.

When we arrived on the friday the hotel bar was closed but the staff in reception soon opened up. We ate in the restaurant on one of our evening's and everyone in our party of eight agreed that the food and the service was excellent.

The rooms are a little small bit are well furnished and comfortable, given what we paid for our stay they were much better thatn expected. Some of the carpets in the communal areas were a little shabby but nothing serious.

Breakfast was great with a decent selection served piping hot.

We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you and your party enjoyed your stay with us.

As the hotel is 300 years old and listed, I can't do anything about the size of our smaller rooms but the stair carpet is in our next refurbishment programme.

Unfortunately we only had one night at this lovely hotel. Our main reason for going was to see if the AA rosettes awarded to its restaurant were justified. They certainly were. We were on a Travel Offer visit so we were not expecting the the very best but as it turned out everything was of the highest standard, from the friendly reception to the warm comfortable room and finally the meal We had their Taster Menu of canapes, amuse bouches, fish course, main course, and dessert . all absolutely delicious. Wine was not over priced and good.

Having to arrange a meeting in the middle of Devon & Cornwall is never easy.. hotels are never where you need them! However having used this venue many times I can safely say the standard of care does not change. The Arundel Arms has lovely welcoming staff who work with you to get the best from a meeting. We used the Tamar Suite and had 30 people come to our meeting. The room is of a good size, not the most modern but does the trick. Dinner was served promptly in the separate dining area and everyone commented on how good the food was. I stayed in a refurbished room which was lovely and breakfast the next day was fast and tasty.

We have stayed at 5 star hotels all over the world and been fortunate enough to have had two 6 star cruises. We can confidently say that the food we enjoyed at the Arundell Arms during our three night stay was the best we have ever experienced. Coupled with friendly, helpful staff, this made our stay memorable and we cannot wait to return.

Our recent overnight stay at the Arundell Arms Hotel was a most enjoyable experience. From the time we arrived the staff were so helpful and friendly they couldn't do enough for us. We booked the five course 'taster' menu with complimentary bottle of wine and two glasses of champagne through Travel Zoo and found the food was excellently prepared and presented and very tasty. After a very comfortable night's sleep in the large double bed and with excellent en-suite facilities we enjoyed a delicious full English breakfast all perfectly cooked.
Relaxing and comfortable bar and lounge facilities, elegant dining room, altogether first class.

ps My wife wanted to kidnap the chef!!!!

My wife and I spent a night at The Arundell Arms on the Travelzoo deal. The staff were friendly and unlike a previous reviewer our bedroom was enormous and very comfortable, although we were surprised to find blankets rather than a duvet on the bed. The taster menu in the evening was first class and beautifully presented, as was the breakfast next morning. We were only passing through on our way to Cornwall on holiday but we would have liked to stay longer. The half price deal is good value for money and we highly recommend this hotel

We stayed for a couple of nights B & B.
The room, service, in fact everything was excellent.
If I would make a negative comment, it would be that the arundell arms website doesn't show how lovely a hotel it is, or how friendly the staff are.
If you need to relax, stay here.
