Positive Reviews

Amazing views from the rooms

Some of the rooms have a view over the river Taw and the forest in the distance. Previous guests have highly recommended these rooms in comparison to others which look over the car park.

Made to feel very welcome

There are reviews about the staff and how welcome guests have felt when they arrived, even if there is a function on at that time. They are greeting with big smiles and offered drinks at the bar whilst their room is being made up for them.

Great wedding venue

The Country Hotel is well known in the area as a great venue for special occasions especially weddings. The huge gardens stretch out the back of the building giving plenty of space for Gazebos.

Negative Reviews

Terrible quiality food for the money

There are many negative reviews regarding the food. Guests who have dined here either at breakfast or dinner have explained how disappointed they were with the food quality and quantity. The price appears quite high here in comparison to others.

Small and large rooms priced the same

There are negative comments regarding the room sizes provided which differ but are not mentioned before you stay. The prices are exactly the same regardless of which room guests are offered which has annoyed some previous people as they feel this is not value for money.

Dogs allowed with you at breakfast and dinner

Guests staying with a dog can bring them to breakfast and dinner which is beneficial so they don't have to stay in the rooms. This unfortunately is not so great for those staying without pets. They feel its not very hygienic when people are eating in the room and some may have allergies. The owners also have dogs.
