Small hotel in the countryside near Exeter.

Posted 14-Feb-2017
Pros: Location, right in the countryside.
Location: Lots to do in Exeter and very near the sea!
A very comfortable stay. Enjoyed lovely breakfasts and served at the table which makes a different from most hotels which have self- service breakfasts. The restaurant was very cosy with an extensive menu.

The VERY best

Posted 06-Feb-2017
Pros: Everything. We were unable to fault it at all
Cons: How do you improve perfect?
Location: Deep in the country, no traffic at all - just perfect. We explored Dartmoor which was full of activities thanks to the rains from the previous days.
I have stayed in hotels al over the world for the past 50 years, business keeping me on the move all the time. This hotel was the very best I have ever stayed in. The greeting we received when we arrived was heart melting and we felt though we have just come home. The whole establishment was so cosy, we felt relaxed as soon as we walked in. Our rooms were perfect and the roaring fire in the lounge bar was very enticing. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Sitting by the fire, G&T in hand while the menu was described - I had gone to heaven. After a relaxing dinner we found the beds were very comfortable and I had no trouble at all about sleeping and would have slept through the alarm had I set one! Breakfast was a true English one which set us up for the day. My only concern was that we were there for only two days - we have loved to have stayed a week or more!

1970s retro chic

Splendid 1970s retro chic, fantastic food but bed could do with a new mattress. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. If you want real tranquility and the true "essence" of rural Devon; this is the ideal retreat!

Superb stay!

Posted 18-Oct-2016 on Hotels
The Barton Cross Hotel is such a welcoming establishment. It is far from modern, with the bathroom suites and fixtures and fittings somewhat dated. So if you are looking for something more corporate and minimalist and do not like quaint, this might not be the place for you. The rooms are clean and comfortable though and had everything I required. Coffee and tea making facilities and a chocolate biscuit. There was also a mini bar in the room. The bathroom, as mentioned, was dated in decor but had everything you would need, toiletries and a selection of towels. Breakfast was to order and was great. The location was ideal for me. It is a short drive from Exeter but very handy for the town and the university. It is in a small village in the countryside. Very quiet. It's a great place to unwind. The staff are friendly and helpful. Everything is just a bit slower and less hectic. A great place to relax.
