We stayed here for two nights. If you've ever felt like an inconvenience as a customer to a business this is how we felt. The Cromwell Arms is in a great location and has a good pub atmosphere, but the hotel service is just very average.

JULIE R, Owner at Cromwell Arms, responded to this review

I am sorry you had to review us so harshly. The problem maybe is that we are not a hotel, we are a country pub with rooms. We don't provide hotel facilities such as a night porter, room service, open 24 hours a day and never have done. Our prices to stay reflect this. If you want to stay in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Great location close to all amenities. And a few minutes from Dartmoor. Very clean and staff very accommodating. Room we had was very spacious and comfortable. Excellent food and the Sunday lunch is not to be missed. Bonus is plenty of parking. Would recommend to all.

We stayed in the Cromwell Arms for a weekend during the summer with two couples. On arrival we got shown to our rooms, which were spacious and clean. The bed was a bit too soft and bouncy, which made for a light sleep. The shower could do with more water pressure, but was ok. The hair dryer can be considered... More

Stayed for one night, mid week for bed and breakfast. Staff friendly and welcoming. Room and bathroom were clean and had everything you needed. The pub area was also clean and well maintained.

This pub bed and breakfast is ideally situated in the centre of town with free parking. The room was clean, quiet and reasonably sized. Two points worth noting. Firstly the taps in the toilet are hot and cold but no mixer. The hot tap is extremely hot so you need to fill the sink before use. Secondly, breakfast is only... More

I stayed here whilst auditing locally and found it to be great value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had to change my booking slightly when my husband decided to join me and it was no problem for them. The food was tasty nice. The rooms were clean and modern with all the requirements.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cromwell Arms is just a 5 minute drive off the A38, being ideally located on the edge of Dartmoor and in close proximity to the Heathfield Industrial Estate.The town of Bovey Tracey, also known as the Gateway to the Moor, offers easy access to endless countryside and attractions and is a fantastic place from which to explore the whole region, from the moors, tors and villages, to the beaches and seaside towns of Devon and the rest of the South West of England. With Exeter, Plymouth and Newton Abbot easily accessible from here and being only 10 miles away from the sea, our location is an ideal stop over for a business trip, a weekend break or for longer staying guests holidaying in sunny Devon. The 17th century oak beamed coaching inn is a family run award winning* establishment in the heart of the town and offers 14 tastefully,comfortable en-suite bedrooms. One of which is a family room that can sleep up to 6 people comfortably. We have Wifi throughout the main building, a lawned beer garden with a pagoda and decking for those warm sunny days and two log fires to warm you on those cosy winter nights. We even have some chickens to say hello to! So, whether you are on holiday, on business or just passing through, a visit here is highly recommended. Dogs are welcome to stay too.
