            Central location for shopping bars and restaurants. Nice atmosphere in coffee lounge. Attentive staff and breakfast cooked to order.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The hotel had a lovely old fashioned feel, like you had stepped back in time. The staff all exhibited an old world courtesy and attentiveness rarely seen these days. The food was excellent as was the service.There was a very relaxing atmosphere in the comfortable lounges and everything was spotlessly clean. It's location in town was excellent with shops, restaurants the theatre and cinema all just a few steps away. It is also conveniently placed for public transport.

            Just a few minor details which did not spoil our stay but wouldhave enhanced it. Such as a full length mirror in the room and a comfortable chair. Also the room was a little bit smaller than we had expected.

            The room was very clean Excellent breakfast

            Both nights were very noisy due to local night life (stayed Friday and Saturday). Pan Pipe version of Abba's Dancing Queen played on loop continuously for 40 minutes during breakfast on Saturday morning. Thankfully it must have worn out as Sunday was soft 50s jazz!

            The friendly staff were very welcoming. Position was excelent very conveinet to station buses and shops

            My room was at the front and was a little noisy with the young ones celebrating. This was only for a short time.

            I am a coeliac and your hotel was very aware of the dietary needs right down to gluten free bread and sausages @ breakfast time.

            All aspects were good.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Services of the hotel (lobby, pub, lounge and dining room) are pleasant and well equipped. Breakfast is excellent.

            My room was a little bit small.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The room was very comfortable and the decor was a good standard. It was very clean and the rest of the hotel was lovely too.

            The food was awful, we ate in a group for the evening , the starter was good, carvery ok but dessert was tasteless. The breakfast was terrible. I was looking forward to the full english, but the quality of the food and the way it was cooked left alot to be desired. I would not recommend this hotel because of the food.

            Great staff and service. I stayed in room 410 and there was a noisy fan located in the freezer room below that kept waking me up on the 2nd night. Apart from that I had a great stay.

            Please see comments above

          • Older travelers

            Very pleasant staff -old-fashioned in a good sense

            Room was rather dark with little outlook and some fan noise but we did book rather late. Decoration, lighting etc fine.

            I visited the North Devon Fringe Theatre Festival and visited various sights in the town. The 'Theatre Fest' was fabulous, some truly top quality acts in a very relaxed atmosphere. The town is very pretty too, the Panier Market and the Strand are worth a visit. Zena's for lunch was a joy, with live music making it very good fun.

            Unfortunately it was very difficult to sleep on Saturday night; there was a disco going on in the hotel until the early hours, being in central Barnstaple there were people partying (shouting) in the street also until the early hours. Once the disco was over we had to put up with the lift bell chiming every time some one used the lift in the hotel.

            Lovely hotel food and staff excellent.

            Shower could have been a little hotter and leaked all over the floor.

            Location in town. Friendly service.

            Parking - car spaces very small and difficult to access

            The staff were very polite, friendly and efficient

            I had a single bed (which I expected) but I am 5ft7" and even with my head at the top of the bed my feet hung over the end!!
