Stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and had two very good dinners, plus very good breakfasts. The bedroom was modern and comfortable and all the staff are very friendly and efficient. There is a large car park and, for golfers, its very handy for Saunton.

We booked two rooms for one night. We added the second room later but we sill hoped to get the rooms next to each other. No such luck. The walls in our room were paper-thin. We heard every word and sound. Why is that acceptable? The restaurant was nice for dinner, but they end breakfast at 9:30 and don't show...

We had amazing service throughout our entire visit, the hotel was wonderful and the staff were incredible, we attended a wedding which with massive credit to all of the staff was absolutely perfect. The bridesmaids managed to soak their dresses but luckily the chambermaids came to our rescue!

Decent food spoiled by silly rules We popped into the Barnstaple Hotel recently for a bar meal and the food was as decent as ever. Good choice on the menu, excellent ingredients and all freshly cooked. It is rather over-priced but that is Brend Hotels for you. The real silliness was that they refused to set up a tab so...

Great hotel, the room was clean and spacious. The food was first class. Only thing that lets it down is there are no lifts and some of the rooms are a long way to walk from reception. A 15 minute walk into town

Stayed here on a last minute room only deal. Large room with an excellent shower and balcony overlooking pools. Great when the weather is not so good. Pools were very warm both indoor and outdoor. Disappointing to have saunas in changing rooms so couldn't be with friends. Floors very slippery by pool and felt padded seating was a hygiene risk....
