Fantastic stay, lovely room, grounds and breakfast, would recommend.
Dartington Hall is a lovely building set amongst beautiful grounds.
We enjoyed great weather during our stay, allowing us to make the most of both. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. Would recommend and will try to visit again, and hopefully take in a talk or screening in the grounds next time.
We really enjoyed our stay, a wonderful room, our only criticism, the room was a little too hot which necessitated an open window, food was excellent.
would love another stay at Dartington, the whole experience was really wonderful
Well worth a stay
I stayed at Dartington Hall as it looked appealing.
I was not disappointed. Staff were really friendly and helpful, room was comfortable and clean and the food was fresh and appetising. Where else can you stay and watch a film in a cinema at the same venue?
Excellent all round
We had a double room in the West Wing.
To stay in such a beautiful building and in such beautiful surroundings was a joy. Our room was quiet and clean, lovely, comfortable bed, nice to have a kettle and tea and coffee making facilities. We enjoyed the breakfast but we do prefer to have fruit and yoghurt and then toast available. The hot breakfast looked fine. The coffee was out of this world and the local jam selection was great. Good service. The estate is wonderful with walks in all directions, beautiful gardens, cafés and ice cream on offer, Dartington Village a walk away if you're a shopaholic. Totnes town only a short drive away.
Room for improvement.
A beautiful estate and buildings with a fabulous vista.
The twin room was very small but ok for a short stay. The beds were comfortable and the facilities adequate. The most dissapointing element of the stay was the breakfast, which was buffet style on the Friday and served on the Saturday. Only one very sugary yoghurt available on the Friday and no others available at all. (menu states yoghurts available.) No yoghurts allegedly delivered on the Saturday. The mushrooms and tomatoes were cold despite being in a Chaffing dish. Toast arriived burnt around the edges (Fri). Breakfast served between 7.30am - 9.30am; by 9.00pm there was very little choice and juices not topped up. What concerned me the most, was that there seemed to be no one overseeing the service quality. In contrast the evening meals were excellent as was the service. There also needs to be some decent wholesome cereals - Granola/Muesli etc as well as the high st varieties. Overall the breakfast experience was dissapointing.
Basic but excellent meal
Room very much like a dormitory, but very clean and well kept.
Evening meal was superb as was the breakfast
An interesting place to stay, BUT: Breakfast finishes at 0900 on weekdays!.
Should be 0930 as in other hotels. Checkout is at 1000!. Why not 1100 as in other hotels. Bathwater came in "grey" and left a substantial black deposit when it ran out. Hotel could give no explanation.
food was awful; very overpriced and minimal.
Breakfast fine though. Could have done with a bath in the room; just showers.
A quiet and comfortable stay
The rooms are in the East Wing block of the central area of Dartington Hall.
My single room was like a study bedroom, plenty big enough for one, with good quality bedding and furniture. Everything worked as expected and it was very quiet. Downstairs is a beautiful residents lounge, with lovely wood furniture, books to read and a calm atmosphere that was perfect for relaxing or for working.
Great location lacking final polish
Perfectly acceptable stay, the location is great, fantastic history and friendly helpful staff.
The room was comfy and quiet, if a little small - it felt like being back at uni. The reception sign was a piece of A4 stuck to a post, I expect as the hotel develops this will change - not an issue at all, but it detracts from the overall experience and at a 'discounted' rate of £103 for a single room, I expected slightly more polish. I don't know how much a full priced room would be. The food was great, but all three plates of tapas arrived at once and by the time I got to the third plate, it was cold, but that might be more down to me eating slowly. All in all, I would say this place is 80% there, my stay was perfectly adequate, but I think it lacked the finesse to make it perfect.
