Good Hotel Guide Review

‘It’s a pleasure to stay here.’ In a ‘beautiful location with stunning views of Hay Tor and Dartmoor’, the Hassell family’s ‘delightful’ hotel has ‘a lot going for it’: ‘friendly, helpful and efficient staff’; ‘good-quality food’; the ‘quiet surroundings’. (‘A little tricky to find’ – ‘but worth finding!’) Take in ‘lovely’ moorland views from any of the traditionally furnished bedrooms. ‘We thought our room could have used some updating, but we appreciated the big, comfortable bed, the heaps of storage space, and the modern bathroom, which had a good shower over the bath.’ Bistro food and snacks are served in the Blue Tiger Inn; in the dining room, chef Mike O’Donnell’s ‘excellently presented’ British dishes might include ‘perfect smoked haddock risotto’ or ‘commendable guinea fowl confit’. 4 miles NE of Ashburton.

Guest comments

'Beautifully located with stunning views of Hay Tor and Dartmoor. A very quiet hotel; the downside is flakey wifi. Our double room was fine though the décor could use an update. The bed was big and comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was modern with a good shower over the bath.We ate in all four 4 nights, three in the restaurant and one in the bar. Presentation was excellent but this thankfully was not at the expense of portion size, we were usually too full to tackle pudding. The staff are all friendly, helpful and efficient.
