The shinning

Reviewed 10 august, 2022

Well, hmm, erm, probably would of had a better stay in a tent tbh! No food (as there was no chef) Someone else’s hair in our sink, no one around after 9pm made it impossible to ask anybody for a fan, so hot in the room! Lots of parking, guessing it’s because no one comes here. I would stay away from this place. It’s almost ready for the bin. Dated. Reminds me of ‘The Shining’ hotel in the film, made in 1980. Will never come back. I won’t even look at it if I pass it. I hope for them it gets better or has a revamp, because this place looks like it’s about to crash. 2 days we have to stay here. Help

I don’t wish to be mean but this place should be a goldmine, but it’s not. Attended a work event here, three pump beers/ciders on tap, cider was off. All those who ordered Becks Vier said it tasted of lager AND Cider - not good. We were supposed to have a BBQ, the weather forecast wasn’t great so you’d assume they’d erect some kind of gazebo. Nope. The chef looked outside when it was p*sling down and declared, “that’s not happening” The food was served from the kitchen, sausages were ok, burgers were savagely undercooked and I confess I steered clear of the anaemic chicken! Now one might think if a local business with 50+ employees was attending an event they’d make an effort. It seems not. My previous visit here was 35 years ago. I’m sad to say I hope it’s another 35 years before I have to go back.

Booked two nights to attend Funeral . Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Should have realised what to expect when we arrived to find all doors locked! No sign of any human activity. Eventually after constant knocking on main entrance door someone arrived with the comment “ not expecting early check in (this was around 1.00pm) on my own so locked door! But we were expected having Pre-booked ! On checking in we were advised of virtually no facilities available. dining room and bar closed , no cleaning of rooms etc. etc. when I commented on apparent lack of staff, was told by receptionist (?) she was the only staff on duty and why would she want anyone else ? Now to the room, well it was pleasantly roomy and clean, but that’s it. Bed was like sleeping on concrete (actually didn’t get any sleep). Peeling wallpaper , mishmass decor/curtains/carpet. Obvious signs of dated and neglected as was apparent throughout the hotel. Room was cold since no heating on. Garden area (which was extensive) again neglected and uncared for. I could go on but just writing this is winding me up! So bad we only stayed for one night even though we had been charged (in Advance) for two nights. When we attempted to register our concerns and check out, we were told i believe by a security guard?, No staff member available , just to throw your room key in the bowl on the reception desk. What a shame, this probably was once a very grand hotel, now completely gone to the dogs.

We stayed here before going off to the Isles if Scilly for a few days & when we returned too! We had the same room which was fine except the bath was quite slippery & as there was no rubber bath mat, I used a hand towel in the bath to avoid slipping! The decor is rather dated but in the whole, clean & comfortable. The downside which we thought was really bad, was the fact that I was charged the same price for a small bowl of custard as my partner’s sticky toffee pudding! ( which was served with custard) A cost of over £5.00 for a small bowl of custard was exorbitant! Moral of this story is - ask the price before asking for anything ‘off piste’!!


Group weekend visit

Reviewed 25 october, 2021

Warm Welcome to our variable group over 3 nights, several of whom were involved in events at Exeter Cathedral . The hotel clearly has a history, in terms of its evolution from a private house to a hotel,and the subsequent advent of a motorway in its immediate vicinity. Set in beautiful surroundings with spacious grounds there is a feeling of yesteryear when the house became a hotel. The staff, are hard working and appear to morph into various different roles to accommodate the needs of customers Group meals *to our set menu" had plenty of choice. Service was personalised and friendly. Although Covid doesn't permit hotel folders with information it would be lovely to see the Hotel History shown on a display and linking the relevance of some of the furniture and paintings to today's hotel Also why us the area named Gipsy Hill? Thank you to the staff
