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.
the stay was absolutley Great, the Food was Fantastic,the service could not be Better, We had Entertanment every night and every night there was a differant entertaner and they were Brilliant. If you Would like a short or long Break from home I would advise you to stay at the Durrant House Hotel in Bideford N. Devon. Not only was the Hotel Great but the Bideford Area is Really
Beautiful, there is so much to do in the area and a Lot of nice Veiws. Over all i would say this is the best hotel i have stayed in.
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!!!

We left Westerleigh and travelled towards Ilfracombe. We could see Wells cathedral with its spires on the skyline, we walked into Wells but just collected some fruit for lunch and carried on. Our route took us across the northern edge of Exmoor and we could see the coastline below us. Continuing on we called in to Dunster. As we approached we could see the castle high ...
... did a round trip through Bodmin and Liskeard before heading back to Launceston, where we visited Launceston Castle. By this stage the weather had cleared considerably, and the views from the top of the castle made it certainly worth all the extra stairs that had to be climbed (and we did it twice as the first time we missed the flight of stairs that went right to the top). We got back to Dorset Farm at about 4:30, and had a rest before our second dinner at the Countryman ...
... then around the farm, with the owner John giving us a bit of a conducted tour before setting us loose on our own. We wandered through the paddocks, and at one stage we understood how the Pied Piper felt as we had an entourage of calves following as wherever we went. It was a glorious afternoon, sunny and mild. Dinner was at the Countryman Inn, a few miles down the road, and it was English pub food at its finest (not to mention most generous in quantity). All in all a lovely ...
Yesterday Robin and I went for a walk on Exmoor. It was windy and cold and we just missed a heavy shower when we pulled up in the car park. The start was over a stretch of moor then headed steeply downhill to a river valley, where the walking was a bit easier. We made our way to the Humters Inn for a tasty lunch and a pint to go with it. The sun was out by this time. After lunch we headed down the Heddons River valley ...
... station and we went back for a lovely lunch. sue had made a delish butternut, lentil and mushroom dish. We had a walk in the afternoon and called in to see Loenna's new guineapigs -Toffee and Midnight. The family turned up later for tea and snacks. Sam and Olly busy with school and college. It was good to see them all. On Monday we did shopping in the town and I picked up the rest of my tickets from the station. A cold and windy day with some showers-- it is warmer in Melb ...
