Decoration is a little dated but very clean and tidy. Lovely food in the restaurant, vast wine and bar selection to choose from.

Idyllisches altes Cottage

Posted 19-Jun-2015
Das Hotel ist sehr gemütlich altenglisch eingerichtet, es liegt etwas abseits, sehr ruhig. Die Küche ist hervorragend. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl dort und sehr gut betreut.

Thatched roof farmhouse converted into hotel.

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Everything
Location: Nothing, unless you have a vehicle. Near enough to Exeter if hotels and B&Bs are full there.
First the positive, quaint 16th century farm with thatched roof and low wooden beats throughout. Home cooled meals with decent ingredients, and adequate preparation. Quiet atmosphere, far from any public transportation. In other words, middle of nowhere. Desperately in need of renovations. Retrofitted shower fixture in a bath from the sixties was a huge dissapointment. Grungy carpet in the bathroom, mouldy, dank smell not the least bit diminished by an ancient pot of potpourri in the room. Bath not at all spoc and span, and as mentioned outdated fixtures with decayed wood toilet seats. It the place was advertised as a B&B with prices about half what they are then perhaps it might garner a recommendation from us.

Quaint hotel in the middle of nowhere

Posted 26-May-2015
Pros: The quaintness and although in the middle of the countryside only a few minutes ride from Exeter. A bit like stepping back in time!
Cons: The showers could be upgraded - only a trickle of water to wash in!
Location: Location is wonderful and peaceful but still in close proximity for Exeter and many other surrounding villages. Attended fete with brass band!
Wonderful break in the peaceful countryside with lovely food in the restaurant.

You will enjoy the food

A charming thatched roof and right next to a small church started in the thirteenth century, but the chef is an artist worthy of a larger hotel. The cuisine will be your memory to take away.

Charming!

Barton Cross is charming. It is in a lovely area of Devon down a hedge filled road. We were happy to find it and happy with our two day stay there.

Quiet location not far from Exeter

Posted 08-Sep-2014 on Hotels
My colleague and I stayed for two night, my room was a double, his a single. The hotel was quaint, with very friendly staff. Food was excellent. The decor is dated, and very floral, but thats a personal preference issue. The bed was a little hard, however the room was a good size. The shower was ok, but again, dated equipment, so don't expect a wake up power shower. Over all though, the stay was enjoyable, and I would consider going back. Main observation would be to avoid Room 5, as this is above the kitchen, and you can hear what is going on, along with the radio, so if you want an early night, it's not ideal.

Barton cross

Wonderful old worked listed building from early 16th century - off the beaten path on very small winding and unlit roads - worth the trip
