    Certainly not value for money ! Superior Jacuzzi Room £160 / p.night not what we expected. Accident waiting to happen trying to get in/out of Jacuzzi Bath. TV in bath didn't work, Cleaning of room was poor. Shower attachment on bath but difficult to shower due to contour of Jacuzzi bath. Breakfast was poor, returned it on 2 occassions same morning! Overall very poor and would not return!

    Good

    Service was freindly, but bargin meals were just that, poor quality at cheap rate.

    If you enjoy spending your evenings with over 60's coach parties this is the hotel for you!

    Very good

    The '£6.50 Special' Main course + dessert was a bargain. The ample breakfast included a wide variety of choices and kept us going all day. Drinks prices were reasonable for a hotel.

    The food was very good , though the service was slow

    The hotel room we had was £160 a night with a juccuci but the room was small with no shelves or drawers to put anything. The window would not shut properly and being next to the bar we could hear the chillers outside humming away merrrily to late at night. Not worth the money at all and the room was not cleaned very good just all done in a rush,cobwebs in corners and carpet stained all over. Not worth the money at all and will not visit again a disapointing weekend

    Exceptional

    The facilities were excellent and the staff were very polite and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. The restaurants were very traditional and the whole place formed a very relaxing atmosphere

    The exterior of the hotel did not compliment the inside of the hotel. It could definitely do with a bit of tlc on the outside!

    Fabulous

    The staff were very welcoming and made every effort to make my stay comfortable. The breakfast was excellent as were the bar prices (too often hotels abuse the fact that people want to drink where they are staying). The rooms were more than adequate and good value. Overall I would say this was good value for money.

    Parts of the hotel need updating but nothing too major. The system for payment was a little odd but probably reflective of the number of unscrupulous individuals about.

    Superb

    The location is good as a base to visit north Devon. The estuary super room that we stayed in was spacious .The breakfast was very generous. The staff were vry helpful. Free wi-fi was an unexpected surprise. I would have rated comfort as excellent if the bed did not creak!

    Good

    Basic and very busy good service in the bar and resturant

    Not enough coffee and milk for two people. Book in time seemed very late Too busy to give proper attention to the guests

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The closeness to the venue we visited. The view from our room. The size of food portions at breakfast.

    A squeaky bed! Rather small bath towels for an superior room. The rainforest shower was fixed and difficult for tall people to use. The bathroom had had a revamp so that the new tiles on one side of the bath meant that it was impossible to hold the grab rail that side to get in or out of the bath. There wasn't much of the bathside surface available to use either. In the restaurant the service was unusually quick so that the porridge I ordered had been on the table less than two minutes before the cooked breakfast arrived.

    This hotel could be described as "Failing " The orignal decor suggest better times but this is marred by crude signs everywhere offering cut price meals.The "pool" was uninviting the water being very cloudy.
