Travellers' Choice
AA Silver award for comfort, 2 AA Rosettes for food and multiple awards for the Spa make Ilsington the perfect destination for rest and relaxation. Family owned and run and set in 11 acres of private land within the boundaries of the Dartmoor National Park and within sight of Haytor Rocks. A choice of two dining options either in the main Restaurant or the Blue Tiger Inn with its large sun terrace and offering more informal dishes of excellent quality - served all day. Emphasis is on local produce and homemade creations. Lovely cream teas can be enjoyed in one of the comfortable lounges during the afternoon and a traditional Sunday Lunch each week. Beautiful luxury Spa opened in 2015 with hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, fitness suite and indoor pool. Achieved Gold for Spa and Wellness Experience in South West Tourism's 2017 awards and Gold in VisitDevon Spa Awards for 2015, 2017 & 2019. Three treatment rooms also available offering a range of luxury treatments. Located in the Dartmoor National Park, yet only 4 miles from the A38 making Ilsington and ideal place for exploring South Devon. Included in the Good Hotel Guide.

We had three nights there. the rooms were really nice with old-fashioned furniture but really comfortable. There were three lounges, a bar and an am-az-ing spa with hydrotherapy pool. The food in the restaurant was superb. There was no traffic noise, just a view of the moor and Hay-tor. It was quite idyllic. We've booked again for next year. Looking forward already.

For little above what we have paid on occasion for a Travelodge or Premier Inn (no disrespect intended to either) we stayed in a superior hotel with spa facilities, a good restaurant and excellent service.

Came here for a small overnight business conference but will certainly visit again for either business or as a couple. The staff were polite and efficient, the spa absolutely lovely, the food excellent (particularly the evening meal, wine selection and breakfast), the rooms well equipped and a well stocked bar with some interesting local gins. Good attention to details and the staff obviously care about your experience. My only suggestion would be that a couple of areas are starting to look a bit tired but it’s no biggy and if they gradually modernise along the lines of the spa, it will continue to be a good destination.

This is a lovely hotel, in an attractive village that has a personality of its own, but is well placed for visiting Exeter, Dartmoor, and the coast. The food is consistently very good, and served quickly, with a choice of fine-dining dishes, and burgers and stews, plus vegetarian dishes. There are three comfortable lounges to relax in, and the bedrooms themselves are very comfortable anyway.
