16th Century English Experience!

Posted 05-Oct-2015
This hotel is a great place if you're after a typical English B&B experience. Brian the owner is very helpful and was very welcoming of our two sons (11 & 9) as were his staff.

I was looking for a quiet place in the country

Posted 09-Sep-2015
Pros: The age of the hotel, the atmosphere, and the staff.
Cons: All though everything works, a new shower in the room we had was a bit old.
Location: We liked the fact that we could walk just half a mile to another local pub
I was looking for a quiet place in the country, but, not to far from everything, and this " The Barton Cross Hotel " fitted the bill, great food, nothing rushed, and nothing was to much trouble.

An excellent stay in a quiet location

Posted 27-Jul-2015 on Hotels
The Hotel is a renovated 16th century building and is decorated throughout with the period in mind. It is situated along a small lane in a remote area which is very quiet and picturesque. The facilities are good, ample parking, wifi throughout and good sized rooms. However the area at which the hotel excels is customer service and the restaurant, both of which are exceptional. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Perfect for us.

Sixteenth century buildings tastefully restored in a country location, this met our requirements perfectly. The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The attractive bar offered a wide range of drinks and provided a very pleasant background to peruse the menu and sample the canapés. The choice of food in the equally attractive restaurant provided for all tastes and was very good quality. Dinner was at a fixed price. The attention to detail - canapés, cloth table napkins, proper fish knives, soup or sorbet between courses - made the meal even more enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff in attendance. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel but with one caution - although a family room is available I do not think the hotel is ideal for young children.

Decoration is a little dated but very clean and tidy. Lovely food in the restaurant, vast wine and bar selection to choose from.

Idyllisches altes Cottage

Posted 19-Jun-2015
Das Hotel ist sehr gemütlich altenglisch eingerichtet, es liegt etwas abseits, sehr ruhig. Die Küche ist hervorragend. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl dort und sehr gut betreut.

Thatched roof farmhouse converted into hotel.

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Everything
Location: Nothing, unless you have a vehicle. Near enough to Exeter if hotels and B&Bs are full there.
First the positive, quaint 16th century farm with thatched roof and low wooden beats throughout. Home cooled meals with decent ingredients, and adequate preparation. Quiet atmosphere, far from any public transportation. In other words, middle of nowhere. Desperately in need of renovations. Retrofitted shower fixture in a bath from the sixties was a huge dissapointment. Grungy carpet in the bathroom, mouldy, dank smell not the least bit diminished by an ancient pot of potpourri in the room. Bath not at all spoc and span, and as mentioned outdated fixtures with decayed wood toilet seats. It the place was advertised as a B&B with prices about half what they are then perhaps it might garner a recommendation from us.
