Historical Traveler Reviews Durrant House Hotel Bideford
This hotel was a complete let down... Management needs a total overhaul and attitude adjustment. I would not recomend this hotel to my dog to stay at! Pay a little more at for a cleaner, comfortable hotel you will be glad that you did.
Best Holiday Yet
We have just returned form a Holiday at the Durrant House Hotel in Bideford.

Best Place to stay in Bideford
I have been staying at this hotel for 3 months and have found the staff and management to be very helpful, hard working, trying to make my stay as enjoyable as possible, I would recomend to anyone that this is one of the best places to stay in Bideford.
! A well Enjoyable stay, Beautiful hotel !
Just returned from a weekend stay in bideford we stayed at the Durrant
and it was a very pleasent and enjoyable stay the staff were very frendily and always helpful the food was excellent,we were served in the restaurant by a gentlemen called David who really made our stay one to remember the hotel does need a litte work on the outsde but the inside is nicly looked after our room was well decorated and very clean the washbasin needs some attention otherwise it was very nice. I have read some of the other reviews and really can not belive that these people stayed at the same hotel. Well worth a stay.
The worst hotel in England!!!
We had to pay for our weekend when checking in - I should of realised then!!
As there is no way I would of given them a penny for some of the worst food ever presented to me (the gravy on my side salad was rather unappetising)! Hostile, impatient and completly unmotivated staff. The water in the pool was green! The smell in male toilets in the reception was repulsive.
I wished i could convey to you how bad this place was.. and just wish i'd read these reviews before booking
The only good thing about it is the endless stories I am now able to everyone about our stay!!
Please don't go there it was appalling.
ALmost there, not quite
On the whole this isn't a bad hotel. It does need a lot of work to modernise it, but on the whole the new owners appear to have concentrated on the essentials first. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The interior appear appears to have been repainted and there is new carpets. The food is a good quality on the whole and the staff are friendly.
The outside of the hotel is not in the best condition. The bar area is pretty small for a hotel of this size and the disco in the main hall is absolutely dire! Sack the DJ or better yet, get rid of the entertainment altogether.
In need of re-decorating and modernisation.
Like being in an old peoples home.
Dirty & Smelly
Breakfast was disgusting.
booked for two nights but could only stand it for one!
Found much better hotel nearby.
Don't waste your money!
i have just returned from a stay at the Durrant House Hotel and thou it does need some TLC on the out side it was really nice on the inside i had a wonderful 3 day stay the food was excellent and my stay very enjoyable,
Just returned from a 4 day break,This hotel was nothing like it looks on the internet,on arrival there were plants growing out of the guttering and the complete outside is in total need of a face lift,inside the decor is very tired 80's that also needs a complete overhaul,also there has been a recent addition to the hotel,an indian resturant which leaves a smell of indian cooking throughout which can be unpleasant,The cooked breakfast was not to a very good standard which resulted in us having breakfast at the local safeways.
Awful, like being in an old peoples home.
Rooms and hotel filthy, desperate for a good clean and HUGE update!!!
Rooms dirty and out of date!!!
Please dont waste your money!!!

... married in St Andrews Church in 1825. Their children had also been baptised in this church. They lived and raised their family there before sailing to Australia in 1846, where they settled at Mt Barker, S.A. It was an amazing feeling to think that they had been in the church we visited today.
So then we travelled west and crossed the river Tamar into Cornwall. After some time driving ...
After picking up our hire car from Exeter airport our first stop was Buckfastleigh, a charming little village full of friendly locals. The Hamlyn family had a big influence in the village and surrounding area as wool growers in the 19th and 20th centuries. Hamlyn House was once a thriving woollen mill employing many locals until it closed in1946. The mills undertook all the different processes of cloth manufacture and were well recognised for their cloth.
... visit to Tintagel castle shorter than we had planned. The medieval fortification built on Tintagel Island is said to be where King Arthur was conceived. It is situated on a steep headland and adjacent island and is historically significant and it was used as a fortification over many centuries. These days it is a well worn down ruin with very steep paths. We enjoyed the view of the coastline but today was not the day to go ...
... Our three hour drive from Bath to Bude was along the M5 and A30. When driving in the UK you want to use roads with very few numbers as they indicate more than a single car lane. In the case of these roads they had 2 lanes each way. luxury! Our new caravan at home would have felt very comfortable being towed here, as there were many holiday makers with similar vans. Here ...
We enjoyed our stay in Bristol, especially the games of snakes and ladders and Uno with Isobel. Susan and Robin met us at Barnstaple station and , after a bit of shopping in Lidl, took Lilli and the luggage back to Northfield Lane while I cycled back. It was lovely to sit in the sun for our afternoon tea and later on for dinner. The resident hedgehog put in his nightly appearance and walked past back home after devouring his supper of meal ...
