The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Unfortunately we couldn't have cooked breakfast because we left before the chef arrived, but we were...

This is our regular hotel when we visit family in Plymouth. They always accommodate our dogs and the service is always friendly and efficient. Kitty was particularly helpful at breakfast this time and no request was too much. The room is always clean and the grounds are beautiful. We will be back in May

The hotel is set in lovely grounds and has lovely walks across the moors amongst a landscape of gorse and heather. I have used the hotel on many occasions when in the Plymouth area on business, it is a very pleasant retreat in the country away from the intensity of the city. The staff are always pleasant and welcoming and...

We had a two night stay in a ground floor room. The room was comfortable and well equipped, with a lovely view. The dining room was light and modern, tastefully decorated and with a beautiful view of the garden. The service was excellent and the food good.

My daughter treated me to a champagne Sunday afternoon tea. It was our first visit since the refurbishment and the hotel is looking so much better. Beautifully furnished restaurant with an eye-catching colour scheme and wonderful oversize linen napkins - was beginning to think these had become extinct! Amazing service from young, knowledgeable and attentive waitresses. Good selection of finger...
