lovely hotel in great location
Lovely hotel in a great location in Barnstaple. Parking pretty decent , sometimes front of hotel other times in rear car park , but neither a problem. Quite an old hotel but our room was nice and modern but definitely showing it age as you walk down the narrow creaky corridors to our distant room at the rear of the hotel . Food and service were excellent and the staff first rate and very polite and chatty too . The only real niggle we had was with the WI-FI which was pretty rubbish to be honest . Quite weak and forever dropping connection. Our phone signals were weak too but the WI-FI just wasn’t up to it to help with phone issues especially during a family crisis we were having to deal with whilst on holiday. Overall very nice , but in this day and age decent WI-FI is a must and this hotel doesn’t cut it .
