Difficult as it is to separate the stunning food from the magnificent hotel, especially when you book a Gourmet Break, this review focuses on the latter. Would you stay here if the restaurant was nowhere near as good ? Yes, undoubtedly. The location is worth the long trip up some very narrow roads - the views are amazing. Bring the...

We have visited Gidleigh a lot and are keen to see what things will be like this Christmas under Michael Wignall. It really is such a special place and we're counting down the days till we finish work!

We booked the two night Gourmet Getaway to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. We were disappointed when Michael Caines departed at the beginning of the year however, we needn’t have been concerned as the food (under executive head chef Michael Wignall) and service were excellent and we even had a tour of the wine cellar. We stayed in the Spa...

We have been here a few times before we moved overseas and this admittedly was our first visit in 8 years. Sadly it fell short of expectations as this used to be our favourite hotel. Whilst our room was beautiful and the food impeccable there seems to have been a shift away from the terribly discrete and professional staff who...

We have been to Gidleigh park previously and have enjoyed the wonderful ambiance as well as the culinary offering of both the current and previous chef. We therefore arrived for Sunday lunch with a certain level of expectation. The only difference this time was that we were a party of 28. How realistic was it to expect a chef to...

What an amazing part of the world, the property is set within the stunning Dartmoor National Park, while the hotel itself is set on beautifully maintained gardens, with rooms that match the beauty of the local area. The drinks selection and restaurant were second to none, and I am certainly glad we chose the tasting menu and left it up...

The team at Gidleigh Park were professional, friendly and helpful they made our weekend very special. The grounds and surrounding countryside are breathtakingly beautiful. Perfect for short or long woodland walks along the cascading river Teign.

A wonderful hotel. Outstanding location. Service is efficient but still friendly. Rooms are lovely. Food is top class and exhibits flair, imagination and skill. Expensive, but worth every penny for those special occasions and definitely one for your bucket list.
