Best of Devon and Cornwall

A travel blog entry by ka.duncan

Today I started a five day tour of the 'Best of Devon and Cornwall'. Missed out on this part of England when I did the UK tour and it is a part of England I really wanted to see.

Started badly-the bus was 1 1/2 Hours late. Pretty bad for a tour I thought-especially a short tour. But got to chat with some people from the tour (who were at …

Getting ready

The tree is up and the decorations done, the logs cut and ready with the fire lit and warm, the wine cellar full and the food on the way. The first trip was to Cotehele so see the amazing Xmas garland, thousands of dried flowers enhanced as they were threaded and framed in bunches of Pittosporum bound to a hemp braid and suspended from the ceiling of the thirteenth century main hall at Cotehele.

Next was a super weekend trip to Roscoff, a commune in the Finistere ...

Final thoughts

... the Pyrenees. The Aire de Stationment in France that are excellent. Our ability to move from place to place as and when we wished, which is a fundamental raisin d'être de la camping car! For Sue the pleasure of her art journal, for me the satisfaction of this blog and photographic record and for us both the love and friendship we ...

Back home

... worth again as the boat was heaving with people and so the seclusion of the lounge made the crossing enjoyable, along with the complimentary refreshments and table service for lunch. Overall a brilliant break from the routine at home, loads of sun, lots of lovely places and many memories. Easy for the next one ...

I've got Fergies biography in hand for reading material and maybe to use as a gift down the line when I make some united companions. And I've set off from the most glamorous of train stations my ticket cost me £38 to get to Reading and I hope that if I spend the equivalent once I'm out there it will get me across ...

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.

from

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!!!

from

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

from

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.

Very unpleasant!

from

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!

Lovely stay

Terrible

from

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.

Terrible...dont bother!!!!!!

from

Awful, like being in an old peoples home.

Rooms and hotel filthy, desperate for a good clean and HUGE update!!!

Smells disgusting!!!

Rooms dirty and out of date!!!

Please dont waste your money!!!
