We thought we would spend a few nights in the Bideford area as we used to come here with our then young children and stay in a caravan at Westward Ho ! I had intended to book a well known hotel chain in Bideford, but changed my mind when I saw the Hoops Inn that we passed many times 40...

We stayed for a couple of nights in the Mallow Suite (Room 2). Comfortable four poster bed, spacious suite, large bathroom - very clean, comfortable and good value. Excellent dinner menu and freshly cooked breakfast. Despite being located off the A39 there was little traffic noise and a good, quiet night's sleep. Well located for Bideford and local coast.

We recently stayed here for a couple of nights, the Inn is beautiful thatched set in beautiful gardens. Our room was a superior double, very comfortable, and our breakfast was very well cooked and tasty. We are looking forward to one day coming back next time we are in the area. Try the cream tea, scones were delicious.

I stayed at Hoops Inn with my husband and our teenage daughter. Very welcoming staff, comfortable and well appointed rooms and delicious food (ncluding plenty of tasty vegetarian options). The rooms were clean and had everything we needed and the inn is easy to find but very peaceful.

Very comfortable place to stay with a decent restaurant and first rate breakfast. Relaxing bar with decent beers and nice gardens. My room was very quiet and reasonably comfortable. Bathroom dated but I think they are in the process of refurbishing them. If you book by telephone I recommend you reconfirm a week or two before arrival as our booking...

Such a pretty looking pub as we drove by so decided to call in for a meal later that day. How pleased we were as the food was excellent. The place wasn't overly busy at the time and the staff seemed very inexperienced and not sure how to check for table vacancies and we were kept waiting for some time....
