Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Crumbly scones’ make this chic, river-facing hotel ‘probably the best tea place in town’, but there’s much more for its fans to enjoy: ‘a lovely setting, good food and well-appointed bedrooms’. Some guests consider the atmosphere ‘sedate’ in the off-season, but ‘it’s my idea of paradise’, said a regular visitor this year. It is owned by Richard Seton (himself a sailor); Paul Downing is the ‘remarkable’ manager. Every bedroom takes in views of the water – watch out for the occasional grey seal. Consider discussing rooms before booking: a guest this year judged his room ‘fairly small, though comfortable, with a less-than-full view of the river’. Others were ‘delighted’ with their accommodation: ‘Our deluxe room, with a huge, weather-protected balcony, was fabulous – contemporary, spacious, with quality furnishings. The superb bathroom had a double-ended bath and a drench shower; robes and slippers; fluffy towels. Bonus points for the binoculars, too.’ Dinner in the restaurant, with its ‘pleasant outlook and attentive staff’, is thought ‘excellent’. ‘And the delicious home-made breads deserve a special mention!’ (CR, IM, Mary Woods)

Guest comments

'As usual the high standards at this lovely hotel have been maintained under the ever-present manager Paul Downing, and his staff. New this year, the grass area in front of the hotel down to the river has been set out with lounger chairs and tables, a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the view. Over the years we have stayed in a good number of GHG recommendations but the Dart Marina still remains one of our absolute favourites – fabulous staff, well appointed accommodation, good food, lovely setting and plentiful free car parking.

'Everything top class. Another wonderful stay. Our room was pure luxury. A very modern wet room; bath difficult for metal knees. Everything of the highest quality. Housekeeping perfect. The décor of the new wing is beautiful and restful. As usual the staff were wonderful, and the food was even better than before. ' - Mary Woods - March, 2016
