nice clean hotel

Posted 02-Sep-2016
Pros: Clean nice breakfast.
Cons: The noise!!!! maybe better double glazing also the fan in the room was very slow and didn't provide very much air flow.
Location: Location cute little village, one pub, little post office and shop and a church, friendly people.
Was on a main road so very noisy due to constant traffic thundering past.but a lovely clean room with everything you needed.

Very nice and different for a change.

We stayed as a base for a group meeting at Ugbrooke House on the Sunday. The Chinese food was excellent and the service was great too plus as a resident you get 15% discount off dinner. Best to book a table as it is very popular. There is a nice little pub opposite as the restaurant doesn't open til 6.30 and another restaurant up the road. The room was quite big if a little dated. The bed was lovely. The shower room was ok, the toilet was squeezed in beside the shower cubicle so might be a little uncomfortable for larger people. The shower worked great but the tray was quite old and chipped and the seal round the door didn't keep the water in so floor got abit wet! Plenty of coffee sachets but no decaff which is quite important for my husband luckily I always take my own. Two bottles of water which was good. Our room was Jasmine and opened onto the road so couldn't really open windows for noise but they did provide a fan which we used. Big TV which was nice. We would use it again but you do need to phone when you arrive as no-one let us in at first.

Last minute overnight stay

Posted 08-Aug-2016
Warm welcome, good sized room, very clean but room needs some TLC - evidence of water damage to ceiling above bed. Bathroom clean but again very tired with the most feeble shower ever! Breakfast tasty but order was confusing - requested to place order the night before by circling choices on sheet of paper but because we requested cereal and a cooked breakfast we were given a smaller breakfast served on a side plate with bacon brought out separately???!!!!

Shame about the power cut :-S

Posted 12-Jul-2016
Nice place, good value, walking distance to Powderham Castle just a shame we had a power cut so not hot shower, no kettle or TV, family room was worth the money though, clean and tidy

Excellent hotel

Posted 06-Jun-2016 on Hotels
On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our room which was excellent very clean and comfortable, this is in the centre of a small village so was lovely and quiet only sounds during the night was the local owls and a lonely fox. The hotel is part of a great restaurant serving meals in super environment . Excellent food and the hostess very friendly, I will be returning it is now my hotel of choice I. South Devon.

Great restaurant, hotel room could use improvement

Posted 28-Apr-2016
Pros: The Chinese restaurant decor was top quality and the food and service was very good, parking at the rear of the hotel is ample.
Cons: Room size is small and needs some updating, Floors creak badly and Shower water temperature needs to be looked at.
Location: Good location for local beaches
Upon arrival with a large number of bags the door to the hotel was locked. We rang the door bell a number of times and waited but no answer. I finally saw a kitchen worker around the back of the hotel and asked him to tell someone to open the door. After a few moments the door was opened by a pleasant lady who eventually found our reservation. The room upstairs above the restaurant was somewhat disappointing as it was small. Trying to adjust the temperature on the shower was difficult as it was intermittently hot and cold and needed to run for a while until temperature steadied. The Chinese restaurant decor was very good as was the food, it was a quite night and we where the only customers. The hotel is under renovation during the day with a new extension being built at the back. The hotel has ample car parking in the back.

Good place to stay, bedroom and bathroom decoration was basic. Towels a bit thin.

A restaurant with rooms - as advertised

Posted 23-Nov-2015
Pros: The smashing food and the very friendly staff.
Cons: There was no mobile phone coverage but there's not a lot you can do about that.
Location: Don't know - we were passing through.
It is a restaurant with rooms near to Exeter; which was exactly what I was looking for. Guys and gals couldn't have been nicer / friendlier. It was a good honest one night stay with some really really nice food into the bargain.
