We stayed here for two nights during the Feb half term, originally having a room in the North lodge we upgraded upon arrival (at minimum expense really) to a room in the main building with a view over the marsh. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and professional in dealing with this request and within 20mins we had seen to the other room and moved. We found being in the main building much eaiser because everything (i.e. the restaurant, pool, coffee area) was to hand and no walk across the road from the lodges required.
The room and bathroom were clean and a good size together with a good space for luggage (sometimes a problem in other places we've stayed at). We had a Z-bed in the room for our daugther and still had plenty of space. Otherwise there was a hairdyer, kettle with tea/coffee, TV with freeview channels and chairs & coffee table. The bath/shower room also had soap and shower gel.
Certainly wasn't busy at breakfast time, we had plenty of tables to choose from and the staff were very friendly - the buffet and cooked breakfasts were very good too, we all enjoyed the cooked breakfast both days. We never ate lunch or dinner there so can't comment on that aspect.
A big plus about this hotel is the pool, OK it's not big but we made full use of it each day (extra towels were £1 each). They also have a decent size gym and sauna & stream rooms (however they were small and separate male & female ones as they are in the changing rooms).
The location is good for sightseeing south Devon (E.g. Torquay or Dartmoor), so we used it as a base as we were out all day. Overall we had a good time and found everyone very nice. less
