We loved this hotel. On arrival we were warmly greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Our room was immaculate. My husband uses a scooter and the rooms were easily accessible. The bar and restaurant were lovely and being right next to each other were ideal for having a relaxing drink before dinner. The food itself was excellent, delicious to eat...

This seems to be the hotel to go to in Barnstaple for celebrations and conferences. There were two enormous 'do's' during the three days we were there, which meant that the bar for residents kept moving from one place to another. We had been warned, however, by email before we arrived (only if one booked with the hotel itself and...

The picture of the hotel does raise ones expectations that you are booking a five star hotel, it really doesn't look like it when you see it in person but don't judge a book by its cover. On arrival we were greeted by professional friendly staff, we were early so they called through to ensure the room was ready which...

Incredibly disappointed with the hotel. It looks completely different to the pictures on their website and is definitely a motel rather than a hotel. The room and the bathroom were very small, which is fine for single person travelling for a night on business but definitely not suitable for a couple/family. Unfortunately we had checked in very late after having...

We stayed at this hotel for one night only. We were made to feel welcome upon arrival and were allocated a good sized room, which we could not fault. It is situated a little way out of the town centre but has free parking. It was good value for money and we would stay again.

We have just spent three nights at the Barnstaple, courteous and friendly staff, impeccable food and plentiful choice. Rooms a little tired but an excellent base for exploring North Devon , being out of town (albeit next to Burger King on the edge of a trading estate)there is ample parking. Sensible bar prices, in all run to the high standards...
