Crikey Let Me get into the Hotel!!!
This was the second of three visits to this Hotel. The next visit will be the last visit I will ever make to a Best Western Hotel anywhere on the planet. The issue I have with BW are around 'BW's' Customer Services, which put simply; SUCK! This visit I had suitcase and dog lead (with Dog attached) in one hand, and the Dog's crate in the other; yet the Receptionist was adamant I needed to pay for my room first!!! (I had prepaid, but needed to pay for the Dogs.) A firm response brought the Guy to his senses and he issued the key. A quick wash, and downstairs for a pre-bed drink and Bar Snacks (we had already had a main meal). Initially we were told that there was NO FOOD, having travelled 125 miles my sense of humour had evaporated, but luckily the Receptionist went from 'Zero' to 'Hero'; producing a plate of food. The room was very pleasant, this one (two doors down from the last room we had) was much, much cleaner. The light from the hallway was very intrusive, making a 'Good night's sleep' impossible. Had we been staying for longer than a night, words would have been exchanged.

Fantastic Value Hotel
Short over-night stay ready for an early start on the Saturday. Extremely comfortable room. And the Dogs were made to feel very welcome too!

Overnight business trip
Had a one night stay for business. The hotel has no walkable shops or pubs nearby, so I ate there. When driving there, the road from the Ide village is slightly wider than from the other way down the country lanes. There is no lift and no offer of help to your room with luggage on checking in. In the summer, it must be nice to sit in the courtyard but in February, I remained in the bar which was empty and it seemed the few guests had all retired to their rooms by 8.45pm. The front door has a keycode to get in after 10.30pm, it created a sense of being locked in from the dark winter night. Bar food was reasonable and breakfast was brought out to you, but was so quick it obviously wasn't cooked fresh. The hotel is down a private lane with a house alongside. A person was sat in the restaurant talking to staff in the morning and had his 2 dogs with him, I have dogs myself and don't mind them at all, but there was no apology from the owner or the staff when these dogs took a dislike to me and growled, barked and pulled on their leads towards me. Not sure if this was a local visiting friends at the hotel or a guest, but the dismissive "they don't like you" from the serving staff was met with me replying " I dont like them much either" Wouldn't stay again, too remote, a few niggles re no lift and no atmosphere.

Poor reception
This is a lovely hotel in a great position albeit accessed through narrow lanes. Room was excellent, well furnished and comfortable with a first class bathroom. My overall impression was tainted though by reception being deserted at 9.45 pm when I arrived and the bar being closed. When I did get the receptionist by using the phone on the desk he did say he could get drinks if we wanted them (another guest had arrived at the same time) but I was rather hoping to unpack and then go to the bar for a drink.

Lovely hotel in an amazing location with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The staff here are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We felt very welcomed and looked after during the 3 days we stayed. The food is very good, nice choices on the menu and good quality. A bit more variety of the specials menu would have been welcomed. After 2 days it could become a bit samey. The hot breakfast choices are good and all freshly cooked. Nice selections on the buffet table as well, fresh fruit salad was particularly welcome! Good coffee and tea as well. Both our rooms were spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds. This hotel is a little bit far out, so if you want city centre then it's probably not for you. A taxi with the local company Apple costs £15 from Exeter St Davids Station or into the city centre, so not outrageous. But if you want some piece and quiet and lovely, friendly service look no further. We will be returning very soon.
