Nice hotel beside the estuary

Posted Jan 8, 2018
Pros: Clean and tidy and in an excellent location
Cons: We found the prices of bar drinks excessive and it cheaper to eat at the close by Passage house pub The standard of breakfast was lacking
A group of 15 of us had an evening reunion . The meal we arranged for was the Christmas 3 course which was very enjoyable and the manager gave us a special price.

Beds in North lodge are not the comfiest Best Western has to offer. Extractor fan also one of the noisiest; ok if you’re tall and can reach the isolator but not possible for all I imagine. Still, the hotel, staff and facilities are great overall.

Ok stay, nice room but that’s it.

The room was spacious but the hotel is split across 2 sites. A little inconvenient for accessing the facilities in the Main building. The hotel restaurant is limited and pricey but the pub on the site is more casual and offers traditional pub food. The pub food was just ok and the service was nothing special with a young staff who could benefit from customer service training. The chef had a bit of an attitude as well! Nothing awful but nothing special either. Breakfast was equally ok, poor waitress was rushed off her feet and nobody seemed very happy. The area is pretty tired and old - a typical Best Western offering.

Two day stay.

The price of the room was good but the price of the not included breakfast t was extortionate. We were in one of the annex's - only enough milk and sweetner for one cup of tea each. The bathroom fan sounded like a bearing had gone and stayed switched on after bathroom light switched off for an inordinate time. The annex's are not disabled friendly. The hotel was adequate but not special in any way.

Good location. Enjoyed the walk to Newton Abbot along the river. Thought on waiting for our room until 3pm we could have been given a complimentary cup of tea. Breakfast menu was good but a bit dissapointed both the haddock and kipper were off yhe menu. We appreciated the receptionist asking children to stop running around and bei g noisey. They also kindly found me a hairdryer. Good place for a function. Quiet and peaceful surroundings.
