Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in - stayed an extra night as so impressed. Immaculately clean,very well maintained, excellent food and superb service - nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they are all friendly, helpful and professional. Had a lovely room with king size bed and balcony. An old 60’s motel, modernised sympathetically it has great facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, saunas and huge gym. Only negative - indoor pool was too warm and no steam room. Car parking easy right outside. Near the ‘tarka trail’ river walk and a 15 min walk into Barnstaple town centre.

Should be at least 4*
Great for a 3 star hotel. Really good service, very clean and well maintained. Had a 1st floor pool view room, great size and good view. All the staff were very helpful and friendly at all times. Covid restrictions meant everything was table service which we actually found better normal self service and was very efficient in all areas. The only downside is probsbly why they cannot get 4 stars...there is no lift uo to the first floor. Other than that should be a good 4 star property.
Pool view from room 40. Far side is the outside area for the bar.
