Birthday Celebration

Jan 13th, 2020

My wife took me and two friends for an overnight stop to celebrate my 70th birthday. My first time at Lympstone but our friends had been before and knew what to expect. Our rooms were superb, particularly that taken by my wife and I - it was enormous wtih every facility, including gin in the room on arrival. We have previously been to Gidleigh Park ( where Michael Caine was formerly the Chef) on several occasions and the biggest compliment I can pay to Lympstone Manor, is that it was equally as good. Expensive but worth it as a special treat. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Virgin Experience Wedding Gift

Jan 8th, 2020

My husband and I were thoroughly spoilt at this very welcoming hotel. The experience was second to none, especially in the relaxed lounge while we waited to be seated for supper. The taster menu - Wow! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Disappointing food! Not 5 star quality.

Jan 5th, 2020

My wife booked my birthday night for Lympstone Manor and I was very much looking forward to it. The accommodation was excellent and the facilities excellent too. Nice touches such as GHD hairdryers, gin and tonic tray and Nespresso coffee machine. My wife did phone several weeks before our stay to explain I was not so keen on lamb or fish. The staff remembered this which was great - however the menu for the A La Carte dishes was not so great. There were plenty of fish choices but no basics with anything like chicken, pork or beef. Nothing at all Christmassy either and considering it was the 23/24 December this was most disappointing. My wife had turbot which she said was not great and rubbery. I had pheasant which also was very average and nothing special. The puddings and starters were not that wonderful either and not up to a 5 star hotel quality. The odd thing also was - the dining room was situated with chairs and tables on a shag pile style wall to wall carpet which was not easy to get your chair in and out at the table. The breakfast - well - one poached egg, a slice of tomato, a sausage (extra small), a mushroom and bacon which was overcooked and cold. Better breakfasts are available at my local farmshop. It is time Michael came back to his kitchen to review the menu, listen to customers requirements and took better care of what is served. Whist we were having breakfast another lady was complaining to the staff about standards of her food. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Let down

Jan 4th, 2020

Had lunch at Lympstone with our daughter and son in law while on holiday in Cornwall last September and what a lovely lunch food and service both excellent and faultless. You could imagine my surprise when my wife booked a night at Lympstone for my birthday just before Christmas with the a la carte menu for dinner. The evening started well with the gorgeous canapés in the bar, the languestine cannelloni wonderful, but that is where it ended, the poached turbot was cold and bland and the raspberry souffle with sorbet had a large hair in the souffle very disappointing. We advised the waitress of the problems at the time and was very apologetic and sent someone over also to apologies and told me he would sort it out in the morning. On check out the following day nothing mentioned so we paid our bill and left not even bothering to take the tour of the kitchen. I have emailed the hotel and had an apology from the general manager but unfortunately the damage had already been done. Regards, Peter TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Sublime

Dec 18th, 2019

From the greeting at the door to the offer to collect our car and bring it round, the whole experience was exceptional. We we lucky enough to be there for lunch the day theChristmas tree outside was being decked with lights....and even more fortunate to be seated in the bay window of the dining room to watch! A real place for a treat, the quality of the food is fabulous. We chose from the Autumn menu which came with a complimentary cocktail. Great value to match the exceptional meal.....and seeing Michael Caine flitting about, clearly very involved in the running, was (another) bonus. Highly recommended. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
