Food: Excellent. Enough choice, but not too much. Breakfast was good and about par for this sort of hotel. Service: polite, knowledgeable, attentive but didn't rush us. Room (Ramshorne): Pros: Clean, well-presented and recently renovated. Comfortable bed, lovely shortbread supplied, warm enough when heater was turned on. Cons: Shower wasn't that powerful and took a while to warm up. Windows...

Nice meal, nice location and gardens. The food is nicely presented and although a bit slow reaching the table it is obviously freshly cooked. Relaxing hotel, been here a few times and enjoyed both the food and the location.

Ilsington Country House is a lovely, comfortable, warm and friendly hotel in a wonderful location on the edge of Dartmoor (Haytor could be seen from our bedroom window). Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff and we were made to feel very welcome. We stayed from Christmas Eve for 4 nights and the itinerary arranged by the hotel...

On offer was an all inclusive package for either three or four days and through choice we extended our break to six days. On Christmas Eve a cream tea buffet was available during the afternoon, eat and...

We have just spent the last 2 nights at the Ilsington country house hotel staying over NY eve. The hotel and spa are very pleasant, the main sitting room could do with a bit of modernisation, chintz carpets and curtains made it appear old fashioned and some of the sofas/chairs had rips in the fabric, a bit of investment would...

We decided to spend our Christmas 2015 at the Ilsington, as it has a special family connection with my parents who are sadly no longer with us. My daughter and I have had long weekends here before and had many delicious meals at the Blue Tiger so we thought we knew what to expect, how wrong could we have been?...

Visited with my husband for a child-free weekend and had a lovely relaxing weekend. Warm welcome from reception staff. Our double room was great, everything clean and in great condition. The spa looked pretty new and was clean and well maintained and a very relaxing experience. The highlight of our weekend was dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was worthy...

Came here yesterday with my partner, what a lovely birthday surprise!! The spa was amazing - I especially loved the hydro pool. Both me and my partner had a massage, which was fantastic, so relaxing. The food was also good in 'Blue Tiger'. We came away feeling re-charged and very relaxed :) we will definitely be returning!

My husband and I recently spent the night at the Ilsington Country House Hotel for our wedding anniversary and we made a great choice.
