Lovely relaxing stayPosted Jun 29, 2014
The hotel is a lovely building but is a little tired in places. The food was excellent but the service was a little slow and we had to wait quite a long time for dinner, but it was in such lovely surroundings that we didn't mind too much. The cooked breakfasts are wonderful and are served in their restaurant with beautiful views. The staff were incredibly helpful and all of our requests were met with a smile and very quick response and assistance. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. I didn't use the pool but my father did and he thoroughly enjoyed it and said the facilities were nice.

Excellent food; very friendly and helpful staff.Posted May 6, 2014
Stayed just one night for a weekend break, but what a great surprise! The food in the bar (not even the main restaurant) was absolutely delicious: can't give enough compliments to the chef! Room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Small and slightly dated health suite with decent pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The staff are lovely: welcoming, friendly, happy to help and to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I would definitely stay again if in the area, as the hotel is positioned brilliantly for access to Dartmoor walks and activities.

Lovely country side hotel. Great views and friendly staff. In general a bit out dated. A good price and the views makes it worth a visit.

stunning locationPosted Nov 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Islington Couuntry House Hotel is located is some of Devons most spectacular countryside. As the only guest at the hotel, its hard to judge the staff, quality etc. But what i seen, they seemed very attentive and helpful. The decor needs a little updating, saying that the rooms are clean and comfy, bar area looked nice, menu was good and reasonably priced, the leisure complex was a bonus and unlike other hotels it wasn't over used by locals. well worth a night or two escape in the beautiful countryside!

Lovely stayPosted Oct 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed for just one night, but managed to use the pool facilities which were excellent and also dined on site in the 'Blue Tiger' Inn where the food and service could not be faulted. Standard room a little dated but perfectly functional. Would highly recommend this hotel.

really nicePosted Aug 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
My wife and I wanted to spend a couple of days in Devon so we could do some local sightseeing. Dartmoor is beautiful and this hotel was a great base from which to set out on our trips. If and when we return to Devon we are more than likely to rebook the Islington Country House Hotel. The hotel staff were really nice, the food was very good and the setting was brilliant. Highly recommended
