Beautiful gem of a hotel

Posted 09-Nov-2014
Pros: Location - quiet but easy to get to Exeter. Breakfast
Location: We went to The Jack in The Green for a meal. Lovely food and very hospitable. Cant wait to go again.
From the minute we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. This is our second visit and once again the room was beautiful, spotless and with everything you would need. Breakfast was wonderful with a great range of freshly cooked breakfasts.

Best B&B I've stayed in

Posted 01-Sep-2014
Pros: Setting, rooms, welcome.
Cons: Bed was a little soft, but that comes down to personal tastes.
Location: Within easy reach of most of Devon.
From the warm welcome at the door, I was instantly impressed and relaxed. Our room was huge, with a wonderful bathroom, and the setting was perfect, with a large mature garden available to guests. Breakfast was of the highest quality, particularly the sausages. On our second night we wanted to go to the Jack in the Green, a nearby gastropub, but we weren't able to get a taxi, so the owner Dominic very kindly gave us a lift and the owner of the pub ran us home. Great weekend and I hope to go back soon.

Really lovely place to say.

Loved the room: huge room and a big comfortable bed. Great location and lovely garden. Great local pubs within walking distance, near railway. Perfect.

Great hotel, lovely location

Posted 13-Aug-2014
Exactly as the title describes, super staff, lovely house and grounds in a quaint little village. Great recommendations for local facilities, easy location to Exeter, Honiton, Axminster, South coast beaches, etc.... Perhaps a very slight touch on the expensive side, but competitive within comparable accommodation within small radius.

total disappointment

Posted 12-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
If you want icy reception, feel unwelcomed, bad attitude, and totally meanness, this is the rightful place for you! The owner of the house, two gentlemen, both had an appalling manner during the only half hour checking time. The house itself is well decorated, but feels cold and no soul. It is certainly not homey at all! Almost put us off of Devonshire forever!

Woodhayes was perfect for us - located in pleasant grounds in a quiet village the hotel is very comfortable, the service first rate and the staff attentive. We will definitely return here.

Noisy hot bedroom spoiled stay

Posted 19-Apr-2014
Pros: General decor, gardens
Cons: See comments about bedroom
We enjoyed our stay with the exception of the bedroom which was exceedingly hot even with the radiators turned off. There seemed to be hot pipes in the cupboard and under the floor leading elsewhere. The boiler was also close by (below?) and ran almost all night (why?) making it difficult for this light sleeper

Tea and cake on arrival

Posted 18-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely country home, with many period features including excellent service and a warm welcome. Modern bedroom retained the feel of being in a period house. Breakfast was good quality, and served by a charming waitress. We will return, if only for the excellent cake we were served, free of charge, on arrival.
