Amazing owners and staff, the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed at.
I cannot fault anything!
all the staff were wonderful
fruit sald at breakfast was too sweet
The history of the Ox is fascinating!! The beautiful pre and post Tudor stonework and the exposed beams give this place a lovely atmosphere and ambience, the stone(s) of which the original building was created/built around by the monks are amazing, especially lying on lay lines!! Really cool.... The staff were so friendl, really lovely people, nothing was a hassle. But we must point out the young chef Adam!! He was fantastic!!! Even if you're not staying at the Ix, well worth a visit just for his food!! Been to many many pubs for food over many years, but he is up there with the best if them!! A hidden talent, a star in the making!!! We look forward to tasting his delicious food again very soon!! Great location, beautiful walks, stunning views!! Would definitely reccomend going, young or old....if you love history, GREAT FOOD, lovely people, then book your next break here, it will not disappoint!!
Very good food! All freshly cooked with excellent fish dishes and pies.We liked the taster glasses of local ales. Staff were all friendly and helpful. A very good location for the National Trust properties on Dartmoor. South Zeal is a beautiful Devonshire village.
Wonderfull bed, you really sleep like a king or queen. Wonderfull location.
Would like earlier breakfast times...
Friendly staff, building full of character, pretty village, great base for exploring Dartmoor. Food pretty good.
It's all good.
Good food, great room, nice atmosphere and very friendly. Shame I only stayed 1 night.
Staff couldn't do enough to help. Wonderful laid back atmosphere. Beautiful rooms within unspoilt historic building. Delicious food.
Unfortunately we had a very poor nights sleep due to the very soft beds in an otherwise lovely twin bedded room.
The Oxenham Arms has history, and it can be found in the floors, walls and doors. It has character and South Zeal is an ideal location for visitors to Devon and Dartmoor. The hands-on owners/ management were friendly and helpful.
Wonderful welcome, very friendly staff, very helpful. Lovely bedroom.
Accommodation bit pricey, disappointing main meal in the evening, stir fry more like a casserole and my seafood main course, although very tasty was the consistency of a thick soup, the creme brûlée was runny.
Location, building and history
Over priced accommodation and food. Food is average pub food in what purports to be good quality hotel.
The standing stone and especially mine host's explanation about it and the area. Thank you, it was fascinating. Great pub, very comfortable, quiet room. Loved the four poster bed.
Location, atmosphere, bedroom all good, Staff excellent. Food really nice.
Evening meal...i think if you put all your guests in the actual dinning room instead of the bar, they would be more comfortable and create its own atmosphere.
Bedroom was well equipped, clean and comfortable whilst maintaining authentic charm. Walking around the building is so fascinating, so much history even a standing stone or two built into the structure. View of moors room bedroom. Friendly staff. Quiet, fantastic countryside location. Gardens, ponies and sheep. Never slept better. How many bedrooms are partly held up by a 2000+ year old standing stone :-)
Bumping my head on an ancient low beam! (just joking) :-)
The restored facilities are simply wonderful. This is an old monastery that has been so beautifully restored after the new owners took over. The rooms are great and the food excellent and fresh. The owners, Lyn and Simon, are welcoming and helpful; all the staff is great. Don't come here if you are not a lovely person. This place deserves to be appreciated with grace and a joyful heart. The garden terrace, flowers, Dartmoor ponies, geese, cats make this feel like Heaven. Maybe it is!
Excellent staff, excellent bar, comfortable and very clean room
Great food Great bed
Slightly expensive B and B But only one available for dates required.
Nice room and comfy bed. Nice quiet location. Friendly staff and residents.
The location in a smallish village, and if you wish to eat out within a few miles there is a choice of restaurant type pubs,serving real ale and excellent food. The rooms and beds are comfortable with a quirky feel from staying in a 15th century house. The night we ate in the food was also good. The WiFi also worked throughout the hotel.
The room allocated had a very small bathroom with the hand basin in the bedroom. No mobile signal in hotel but if you walk to the top of the main street it is possible to use your phone.
the room we stayed in was spotless , the bed was amazing , it was huge and the mattress was the best I have ever slept on! , the staff were all lovely , nothing was to much trouble , the food was delicious , we had dinner and a full English breakfast during our stay , all cooked to perfection! we met some of the locals on the Saturday night , everyone was friendly and welcoming , we will defiantly be going back!
nothing , I loved it there!
Building full of history. Welcoming by the owner & staff. Excellent room with comfortable four poster bed. Spotlessly clean.
Simon and his wife are very charming hosts. It is a wonderful place to stay in a building with a history of several hundert years offering modern stylish rooms with a very tasteful choosen interio. The food is excellent and it is the right peaceful location to visit and enjoy the Dartmoor National Park.
Warmth of staff from moment we arrived to moment we left, Beautifully laid out bedroom mixing traditional with new.
Great staff and owners. Incredibly attentive, nothing was too much bother. Linen & towels new and fresh. Plenty of tiny nice extras- like cookies in the room.. Great surrounds and good food. You won't regret staying.
Nothing. Can't say a word against it. Although a plug socket for the phone by the bed would have been a bonus.
Good food, comfy ensuite bathroom bedroom.
Banging my head on historic architecture. But would not have architecture changed, rather improvement in own memory.
