Ilsington Country House Hotel: Keeping Up With The Times!

This is a place I've worked and have been put up in one of the rooms, without having to pay for it, but hopefully I can be objective and I definitely have a "fly-on-the-wall" understanding of the way the place runs.

This IS a good hotel.

It's well-run, well-managed, with friendly owners and staff and high standards all round. Rooms, even at the cheaper end (tho' not THAT cheap), are spacious and with all the expected 3-star bits and bobs. Food and service surpasses 3-star standards (the restaurant currently holds 2 AA Rosettes and specialises in local produce) and it is a great location on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, not too far from the main A38 road between Exeter and Plymouth.

Whilst the rooms are perfectly comfortable, the grounds immaculate and the location and views superb there is also the added bonus of a fitness and leisure suite with heated pool, sauna and gymnasium for those who need to work off the calories having dined (and supped) the previous night.
