Room very dark and oppressive but good size. First view of bathroom was interesting as appeared to be brand new with a very large jacuzzi. Unfortunately things deteriorated from here on. On going to use the toilet we discovered that the previous occupant had apparently had diarrhoea , had not used the flush and the toilet had not been cleaned.... More

My husband and I spent four nights at this hotel and we were very happy with the service and the staff. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Our room was adequate and clean. The food was good and came to us hot. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends.

I can't recall ever staying in a worse hotel. 1. The decor was half finished. 2. The window did not close. 3. Wires across the floor were held together with tape. 4. The furniture appeared as though it had been retrieved from a skip. 5. The mattress felt as though it had been retrieved from a skip. 6. The table... More

I really don't know how they make this work either at GB or Durrant House. Our weekend break represented superb value for money. The hotel is modern and comfortable. It is well out of Bideford but the bus stops right outside. A few menu options were odd but that added to the experience. We overlooked the coach park with good... More

Very expensive so expected it to be very nice . Room was ok but nothing special. Staff not very happy looking or approachable . The receptionist never cracked a smile once. The breakfast was nice thou that's why I gave the 2 stars . Would not return here .

Poor experience started with receptionist demanding full payment for our visit in a very officious manner when we had been in the hotel only 5 minutes. We had paid extra for a room with a view. The immediate view was of the coach park and a messy rundown area near the pool. In the distance were trees and the estuary.... More
