Lovely drive through the Devonshire countryside brings you to this gem in the country. Very grand looking hotel with pretty arched courtyard overlooking the countryside opposite. Checking was very efficient and friendly. We ate and used the lounge bar both of which were excellent. Rooms were very comfortable with tv, tea/coffee making facilities. We'll equipped spacious bathroom. Extremely good service...

Just returned home after a 2 night stay at the Lord Haldon. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and this was genuinely a really dog friendly hotel. Our 2 spaniels had a lovely time and felt truly welcome. We ate at the hotel on our first night and were joined by other family members and we all really enjoyed...

Had a lovely stay over the weekend. Very quiet and relaxing. It is a little dated but it is an old building and would be spoilt if it was modernised. Our room was nice and warm, comfortable bed, tv and tea and coffee facilities. We ate in the restaurant both evenings, menu caters for everyone, very well presented. The sweet...

Stayed for 2 nights in a family room at the Lord Haldon during November. The hotel itself is situated in a rural location, quiet and well off the beaten track, yet only 6 miles from the city of Exeter. You wouldn't say that the hotel was modern, it's quite an old building, but it does have character and seems to...

When checking in we requested a room far from the wedding party and were assured that the wedding was at the other side of the hotel. Imagine our surprise to be placed next to the bride and groom's room which seemed to be used for a transit site, doors loudly slamming from about 10:15 PM to 3 AM..... this after...

Dear Kubda301. Thank you for your review of our Hotel. We spoke with you on the morning of your departure where you raised the issue of noise during the night and your travelling partner becoming sick.

Nice hotel, staff are very helpful and friendly. Be mindful the roads are a little curvy and tight in places, but it's fun getting there! Bedrooms are clean and tidy, but like most BW hotels they are not as modern as other hotels - but hey that's what makes them BW

This is what I wrote to the GM of the hotel following our stay on Friday 13th November - I think it says it all: Dear General Manager (apologies I don’t know your name), I have just returned from a weekend away and that first night stay was at your hotel and I simply had to give you feedback as...

This hotel has a welcoming reception and the views are lovely. I can imagine it was be a lovely place to chill in the summer. The reception does smell a little musty and has no lift but the porter took my bags to my room. The room was grand but I was wakened in the middle of the night by...

Set in very photogenic grounds with pleasing views, I imagine the hotel does well from weddings. It's off the beaten track so be prepared for some reversing up nearby lanes when you meet another car or tractor coming the other way! The outside and courtyard is very attractive. Inside looks a little dated. The staff were very helpful and welcoming...
