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.com
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.

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

Quirky hotel near Exeter thatched cottage style

Posted 15-May-2014
Excellent food with home comforts but very quiet after trouble with floods. Worth going out of Exeter to stay as not far out.

A very attractive thatched hotel in the country

Posted 24-Feb-2014
Pros: The peace and quiet and the wonderful food.
Cons: Making sure the public areas are warm and comfortable and some attention to such detail as the shower control being stiff to turn.
Location: We were only there for 2 days to help a family member move house so we had no time to explore. but Exeter is only 15 minutes drive away.
This is a hotel full of character in a peaceful rural setting. The food is really top notch and the other guests confirmed they had been coming back year after year because of the superb food and historic comforts. I can well understand why. We did not see the the hotel at the best time of year as the area had suffered from floods, high winds and fallen trees. The countryside was sodden and cold and this affected the wood on the open fires. The restaurant was chilly on the Friday night but warm and conpmfortable on Saturday. The owner and staff were friendly and very helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
