10/10 Exceptional

Tavistock Awesome
I am glad that i chose to stay at Tavistock, good location, friendly staffs and very clean. When we came back to a clean room after a long day outside. I will definitely came comeback and stay at Tavistock Hotel again. It’s value for money too

4/10 Fair

Wedding stay
For £200 a night the Tavistock hotel was definitely the most uncomfortable I have ever been to. Every room was roasting hot and with no air conditioning very uncomfortable. That was before you got on the concrete slab of bed. The staff were helpful and pleasant enough but couldn’t make up for the general discomfort of the place. In my view I’ve stayed in nicer more comfortable places for a quarter of the price over the last 2years, and they included breakfast.

Great stay
Amazing building and grounds in a beautiful part of the country. We had a great stay, the only niggle was the front door being closed when we got back from dinner at 10pm. Fortunately, we had garden rooms, so were still able to get in. Shower wasn't great, but staff were very friendly and the breakfast was great.

8/10 Very good

Very clean although building and structure looks dated. Some of the staff in front reception where not really friendly looking and spoke really hard like they can’t accommodate you. They need to show a much more friendly demeanour when it comes to actually talking to guests when their requests cannot be fulfilled.
