The Eyre Court Hotel Review (Seaton, Devon)

February 4, 2013

I recently stayed in The Eyre Court Hotel in Seaton, Devon, which is a lovely little village on the coast. The hotel is a pub hotel, with a bar, lounge, conservatory and 8 rooms. I will get the costs out of the way at the beginning, there are double and twin rooms for £60-£80 and 2 family rooms for a bit more, the price doesn’t go over £120 for these though. The family room, downstairs for easy access if you have a pushchair, and I saw a family of 4 come out, so it must be quite spacious. The dining room and a lot of the bedrooms (if not all) have been redecorated recently, so they are nice, new and clean.

The situation of this pub/hotel could not be better, it is about a minutes walk to the beach, a nice stretch of beach, which can be walked along and has a sea that can be swam in, if you are brave enough! There are a couple of ice cream shops and some other little touristy shops, what you would expect of a seaside village. Unfortunately there is a brand shiny new Tesco, but if you need petrol or anything else, then you have a big store to fall back on.

There is a lot to do at Seaton and a lot of things close by. Seaton is near Beer, which can be accessed by both road and on foot by a lovely coastal path starting on the beach. Beer has some nice shops and a lovely place to have cream tea and scones. There are also some other things to do such as the Donkey Sanctuary, some caves and Exeter is close for shops. I’m sure there is more to do in the area, Devon is very popular with tourists and this is a perfect place to be based. Walking and cycling is particular popular, the hotel is a good place to be with regards to walking with the coastal path right next to the hotel.

Back to the hotel, food is obviously very important when on holiday, and this pub does not disappoint. I will start with breakfast, the most important meal of the day, breakfast is served between 8am and 9am and is including in the price of the room. Toast and cereal is available, as is a variety of cooked breakfasts from the hot but healthy to the full English. The sausages in particular are my favourite part, proper English sausages, rather than the bad ones you so often get. And if you want to change something about the options, that is also ok. Lunch and dinner are also served in the hotel, either in the lounge or the restaurant. There are a lot of choices for both and an excellent specials board, complete with desert. I can’t fault the food, every meal I had was good. I even met someone who came back night after night for dinner.

There is a nice atmosphere in the pub, you can sit down and relax while having a drink or meal. The owners of the hotel and those who work there are also great, they are really helpful and make the pub and hotel a nice place to be and to be on holiday. The pub also has some live music every now and again, I have been around for one band called The Sherpas (https://www.facebook.com/TheSherpas?fref=ts @thesherpas), who were very good, brilliant at entertaining the crowd, the locals seemed to love them!

All in all I had a lovely few days at the Eyre Court Hotel, I would definitely recommend it, the rooms are clean, the food is good and the people are lovely, what more could you want!
