Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We did 14 miles over the moor today and are now pleasantly weary. It is a great place, very sad and wild,’ reads a letter – not from a Guide reader, but from Arthur Conan Doyle, said to have been inspired to write The Hound of the Baskervilles while staying at this 18th-century manor house. Today, it is a ‘comfortable, relaxing’ hotel, so dog-friendly that even that devilish canine would beg to be admitted. Chris Daly and son Luke provided ‘a very friendly welcome, as usual’, to a returning visitor. Bedrooms overlook the courtyard, the tree-lined drive or the wild Dartmoor landscape. Some are snug, some spacious. Burrator has a four-poster. All provide good toiletries, ‘fresh milk from the landing fridge’, the hotel’s own spring water. ‘Downstairs, a large residents’ lounge with plenty of comfortable seating and real fire.’ Chef Luke Daly creates such dishes as a West Country rib-eye steak, chunky hand-cut chips, grilled vine tomatoes, herb sauce; pumpkin tortellini with chargrilled vegetables. Some guests found the monthly-changing options a little limited over a four-night stay, but ‘enjoyed breakfast’s home-made bread toast and Cornish leaf tea’.

Guest comments

'A very friendly welcome as usual. A relaxing and comfortable place to stay. A large room with views of the moor, the largest sleigh bed I have are ever seen. There was less choice than last year on the dinner menu and breakfast had lumpy porridge. ' - GC - March, 2018
'Our fourth visit to this relaxing hotel. Large, spacious bedroom, modern bathroom; very pleasant view of moor. Dogs and their best friends may eat in the bar. Sitting in the dining room is a pleasant experience. The food is good though there is now one menu, changing monthly, with everything from light bites to the full monty, but it was large enough to give us choice over four nights. Breakfast has high quality ingredients. The young staff were friendly if a tad forgetful. ' - GC - March, 2017
