Uncomfortable beds, paint coming off walls in en suite, shower was broken, had to use one in another room
The food was excellent, and so was the service. It is in a lovely quiet and peaceful setting.

You must eat dinner in the resturant when you stay, the food is amazing. Staff very friendly and relaxed atmosphere across the hotel. I'm going back 100% and this time taking my dog for walks in the beautiful countryside!

Good staff and excellent food

The rooms need a lick of paint & removal of cobwebs but a minor issue & wouldn't stop us staying again.
Lovely location close to the moor & sea with good walks from the hotel. The staff are very welcoming & efficient & dealt with a gas supply problem admirably by minimising the inconvenience to guests. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant. Definitely planning a return visit.

A drone any time anyone used the water system but then the power was fantastic in the shower!
A restaurant forms part of this property and we ate there twice during our 3 night stay. Beautifully presented, tasty food.

Our biggest disappointment was no hot water to wash or shower with. They did say someone had not flicked a switch and it should warm up but it didn't until the following morning. When we checked out we mentioned the water but no attempt was made to compensate us.
This was a treat for my husband's birthday. We were pleased with our room but the corridor to the room needs a lick of paint and a few minor repairs to the stairs. The lady working in the bar in the afternoon was really welcoming.

The room was cold and we needed to use a supplemental electric heater. The bathroom was extremely cold especially the tiled floor. Heavy mildew on the window frames and grubby paintwork.
Food was good, well presented and good use of local products. Restaurant staff were helpful, pleasant and efficient

Mould in the bathroom Dirty extractor fan Very cold room on arrival and when entering room after trip out.(heating had not been switched on. Staff need to show the same passion on their accommodation as they do on their food and restaurant.

I have been to the Culbone twice before and have enjoyed a lovely stay, however this trip had quite a few issues. Firstly there was a problem with the booking, I booked months in advance and was told a week prior to going that we were unable to stay Sunday night as originally booked. Every effort was made to find other accommodation for us for this one night however the additional fee for the other accommodation was not covered by the Culbone. As it was their error and the difference was only £5 I feel this surplus should have been absorbed by the Culbone. We also booked a double room, however on arrival was shown to a room with 2 single beds pushed together with separate mattresses. I asked if there were any doubles available and was told there were 2, we were then given a double room with no fuss, however I wondered why this was not offered in the first place. The reason I suspect was the noise from the kitchen below, it was very noisy when the extractor fan was on in the kitchen and this continued quite late on in the night and again early in the morning. Breakfast was another disappointment. Usually outstanding, but this time lacked a bit of care. The toast was burnt on both mornings, so too was the bacon and the poached eggs were more like hard boiled- I assumed they had been cooked in advance and heated up. The next morning I therefore opted for scrambled egg and was disappointed again to find a browned omelette. The food is usually brilliant and in the evening was exceptional, however the morning was definitely not of the same standard. Overall a disappointing stay as we have had many a lovely trip here in the past. Unfortunately we actually much preferred the alternate accommodation booked by the Culbone on our behalf for our last night's stay.
Evening food was delicious and the location is fantastic. Personal touch with candles for my partners birthday in the dessert.

Corridor from bar through to toilets and entrance to room, were a bit scruffy, just need a lick of paint!
Dogs were welcomed in all parts of the hotel including the restaurant. Staff were extremely helpful, bed was very comfortable,
