5/5 Excellent

The most comfortable bed ever! It felt very hard but gave both of us the best night's sleep for a long time as it was easy to roll and move on. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Only snag was that the pods were at the bottom of a very steep slope which was a challenging walk for someone with restricted mobility, but we managed. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it heartily. Good value.

Charged twice for stay.
We stayed for two nights, paid cash on arrival for our stay. The shower was boiling so we had to use another shower for the night and next day, which wasn't good, the shower was fixed for the second day. When we arrived home after pating cash for pur stay on arrival, we were then charged again on our credit card, i contacted them and it took a while but they refunded back to the card. I am annoyed as if i was the sort of person that didnt check my accounts, i wouldn't have known until the bill came, i feel with the iasues we had there, then this it wasnt very good.

Early days of the Pods
Not for us. Location not suitable for people with disability especially walking. Not suitable for wheelchairs. Need more storage or shelving in pods. Catering needs more organising. Staff helpful. Village of North Molton offers no facilities. Just needs tinkering for the able bodied.

Lovely stay at poltimore pods
The accommodation was lovely, beautiful views from the room (at the front of the pod). Service was really good. All staff we saw were friendly and polite. Food really nice and reasonably priced. Breakfast was fabulous. Pods are sound proof too - great if there’s any noise from other guests. 😁
