Not a boutique hotel

Posted 12-Sep-2016
Pros: The grounds.
Cons: Pretty much everything. Needs updating if it's serious about boutique claim.
Location: 15 mins from Exeter.
Lovely period house in a beautiful setting. Fabulous gardens. However, far from boutique, it is seemingly furnished from Oak Furniture Land/Next. Rancid smell from hand cream - had to wash it off (can hand cream be out of date?). Mould on Windows. Cobwebs on light fittings. Mould on skirting boards in dining room. Dirty cups and filthy bowl at breakfast. Defrosted frozen fruit - no! Danish pastry seemed to have been cooked on a hot plate - brown on the bottom, uncooked on the top. Woodhayes is a house and it is in the country - that's about it.

Beautiful house in the Devon countryside

Lovely stay at Woodhayes - perfect base for exploring the Devon / Cornwall countryside. Lots of small details and personal touches in the house made our stay very enjoyable!

Perfect for a weekend away

Posted 17-May-2016 on Hotels
When I booked a 2 night stay I had missed that check-in was between 4-8pm, however the owner was completely professional and extremely welcoming when he greeted us a gone Midnight, which is really what we needed after a 4hour drive from London. He even showed us around as he would any other guest! I would not have been that understanding, so thank you! Rooms are perfectly nice, the beds are super comfy and if we were not on a pre-wedding diet we would have enjoyed all of the in room extras such as brandy (I think), chocolates and cookies as well as the amazing looking breakfast! The only small thing was that as it's an old house every time someone went in and out of their room the doors slammed (I'm sure this is probably for fire reasons). This usually would be fine but on the Sunday I would have liked a little extra lie in, but it's really a small thing. The house is stunning and surroundings are beautiful, perfect getaway, thank you!
