    Fabulous

    The location: centre of Barnstaple, a few yards from bus station, walking distance from railways station. Good bistro (The Bank) in the same building. Traditional decor of the accomodation but with some improvements in the bedroom I was given, particularly the double glazed,double windows. Nice surprise for a single occupant : it was a double bedroom of confortable size and with a even more confortable bed. Conclusion: Value vs price

    The bathroom should require some updating: for instance a mixer type tap for the very traditional basin. The manual in the bedroom should mention which switch activates the towels drying rack.

    I'm sorry I don't know how to answer the previous question.We came because it was a base for a visit to Rosemoor, the only one of the rhs gardens that we had not visited. It worked perfectly for us and we enkoyed the reception we received and the excellent service from all the staff. It is unlikely that we will come again, because of our ages and because we have achieved what we set out for. Many thanks.

    Nice hotel and facilities.

    The hotel is in centre of town and the noise outside from nearby pubs was too much.and prevented sleep into the early hours. My room had a portable air con unit which was also noisey. My stay was on a Saturday night, so I don't know if weeknights might be quieter. They need better soundproofed windows.

    A great welcome; comfortable room and quiet for a town centre location; lovely breakfast cooked to order. A real find and a refreshing change from very generic chain hotels.

    The Night porter was excellent, I had an early start before breakfast service started and he set everything up, he went the extra mile

    The room was heated to 27c far too warm
