Not so good
Our staff used this hotel as an overnight stop. There was no one on site due to COVID virus, one bathroom had several bugs (video taken) and the cold taps did not work. These staff travel all over the country and stay in various levels of accommodation and in their option these room were poor and overpriced.

Inn in the centre of town
A newly refurbished inn right in the centre of Okehampton, unfortunately only the pub and restaurant areas have been upgraded and not the rooms. Lots of cracks in the walls, damp on the ceiling in the bedroom, really noisy toilets and water system and despite reporting a lack of bathroom mirror light it was not replaced. They definitely concentrate on the bar and food aspect of the premises rather than their paying guests. Not somewhere for the feint-hearted to stay as the local youngsters frequent the place late on weekend evenings and it got very rowdy with fights breaking out. Staff were slow to react. However, that being said, the rooms are far enough away that you could easily get away from the noise.

5/5 Excellent

Nice Hotel Close to center of town
The staff were very attentive,breakfast was superb

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Room comfort
Wifi issue
No wifi as advertised, very cold room, had to ask for an electric heater - no apology from the manager or offer to change rooms. Food was good and had options for smaller portions, bar staff very friendly, took 15 minutes to find the car park
