    I liked the staff, they were pleasant, polite and courteous to us at all times. I enjoyed the meal in the bar on Friday evening, I thought it was value for money at £6.50 per meal.

    The hotel is great value for money, the rooms are well presented and it felt very welcoming and our overnight stay was perfectly suited to a stay at the Durrant.

    Free upgrade to jacuzzi suite.

    Hotel has large coach parties on a regular basis - if on business would recommend an early breakfast. Hotel serves bookings other than coach party at 7.30. Coach parties from 7.45.

    Upgrade of room.

    This hotel is for pensioners coach trips. I was the youngest guest at the hotel (aged 48) and felt like an intruder.

    Bathroom seal and grout could have given more attention.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Rooms to good standard - clean and comfortable

    The check-in time is too late and inflexible - 1pm would be more acceptable Sunday breakfast is also late - an 8am start would be helpful

  • Older travelers

    Room was spacious & clean. Bathroom was modern. Food was good and well priced.

    The hotel had an unpleasant smell throughout and the building was extremely tired. The handles etc on the doors had been replaced & everything looked a mess. The fire alarm went off at 4am & apparently this was the 2nd time in 2 weeks.

    Convenient for wedding we were going to, beach and Bideford. Staff kind and tried hard.

    Noisy especially early in the morning. Rooms ok but smell of stale old smoke where previously smoking rooms and lots of cobwebs. Breakfast was terrible for an apparently 3 * hotel,

    Oodf good value, staff friendly

    The shower needs to be upgraded, water kept going hot and cold

  • Older travelers

    very nice location, main areas of the hotel good

    felt that the room we booked didnt come up to the standard advertised i.e rain showers and luxury toiletries

  • Single

    The staff were very helpful and attentive . The reception, bar and dining room were well appointed , tastefully furnished and attractive. The only meals I sampled were the breakfasts which were very good in quality and quantity with a varied menu. The hotel's enforcement of the law/policy on smoking is strict. The fire alarm sounded at 5 A.M. one morning and I was pleased to discover that the guest, who had been smoking in his room, was fined and asked to leave immediately. Well done!

    Whilst the public rooms appear to have been re-furbished, my bedroom and, I understand, others were rather tired and in need of renovation. My room was on the ground floor and initially smelled damp until aired by opening door and window for a while. The bath was chipped and there was no fridge. The outside of the hotel is in need of decoration with discoloured paintwork and unattractive planters.

    Location - near to both Barnstaple and Bideford shopping

    Only one Barman on during peak periods. He was trying his best to keep up, but was rushed off his feet!!!

    The entertainment was O.k

    The hotel needs updating and the outside was not presentable and did look as it did not the picture of the hotel. All the rooms where very dark and needed updated and the lighting was very low. The whole experience was that of a very dull and very avarage hotel and seemed that they just catered only for weddings & corporate events. The staff seemed always on to be on duty and seemed very subjude and did not make any conversation as seemed to busy.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Very clean and tidy if a little bit dated and tired round the edges. Great location only a short drive to the beaches and local shops.

  • Older travelers

    Good breakfast and pleasant bar

    Black mould on tiles and bathroom mirror too low
