This was by far the worst experience ever. We had booked a couple of weeks before and the initial room was reasonable but in the middle of our stay we were ordered to move and were given a crummy room. As it was early in the year we were suprised that on our arrival there was no heating and every day the heating only came on for one hour in the morning and then at 4.30 pm in the evening. The hot water was also switched off at 9.30 am so you could not have a warm wash after that. The hoteliers had forgotten that we had ordered an evening meal on our first night and what was served was extremely poor and very! very expensive. The wine was also way over priced at £18 a bottle of a wine retailing at £3.75. A disasterous experience. We did complain to the Devon Tourist Board but were fobbed off and passed from one office to another.
In its broshure the hotel also quoted its fine views. These had been obscured in about 1930 when a substantial number of houses were constructed around it.
