Reviews - Thorverton Arms

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
Th Berry, Thorverton, , Exeter, EX5 5NS
We look forward to welcoming you to the Thorverton Arms, a former coaching inn located in the centre of the beautiful village of Thorverton in Devon. We are in the heart of the English countryside yet only minutes away from Exeter and the local market towns of Tiverton and Crediton, making us the ideal touring base for the north and south Devon beaches, Exmoor and Dartmoor. Exeter University is on 'our' side of town, and Exeter Airport is easily accessible. We have six en-suite letting rooms, all with comfortable beds and flat screen televisions with Freeview. One of our rooms is a large family room with a double bed and two single beds, and an ensuite bathroom. We welcome children of all ages, and have a cot, baby bath and listening monitor available so that parents can enjoy a meal alone if they wish. We also welcome well-behaved dogs as overnight visitors and in the bar. Our friendly establishment includes a restaurant using produce sourced as locally as we can. We cook meals to order and vary the menu according to what is seasonal and good at the time. We are very flexible and will do our best to cater for individual dietary requirements. Our bar is comfortable and traditional, serving an extensive range of drinks, including traditional cask ales and west country ciders. Popular with both locals and visitors, there is always someone interesting to talk to. In the winter, we have an open log fire and for warmer times there is a large south-facing patio and garden with one of the oldest wisterias in Devon. We have plenty of free parking for guests.

Handy for a stop off on the way to Cornwall
Hotel was in need of a refresh which made it overpriced for what we got. Although it was in a very quiet village (with NOTHING else around) there were lots of slamming doors and car alarms going off at midnight, which we accept isn't the hotels fault We chose to eat our evening meal here - very bland food and very slow service even though there were only 2 tables occupied.
Breakfast was very poor - 1 rasher of bacon, 1 sausage. No beans, no hash browns

Delightful
A delightful, very friendly, local pub in a beautiful village and was everything we could have wished for in an overnight stay - a great place to break a long journey. We needed to stay fairly close to Exeter but wanted to get out of the city and away from corporate hotels. The room was small but adequate, spotlessly clean with an extremely comfortable bed, the food is superb, and there's a great garden. We will definitely use it again.

Thorverton Arms, a pleasant place to stay
We stayed at the Thorverton Arms for one night. The landlord and landlady were both very welcoming and friendly. We had an evening meal and full English breakfast, which we both were very happy with. Our room was a good size with a large en suite and it was quiet during the night. Both of us would stay there again. The landlord has a good knowledge of the local area for tourists.

A very welcoming hotel, lovely location.
We enjoyed our stay here - very attractive hotel, good quality room which was exceptionally clean and comfortable ( we travel a lot & many hotels are not that clean - this one was exemplary!). Very good breakfast.
