Customer Reviews

Customer Comment Trip Advisor Aug 2015

"We had to visit Charfield, travelling from Plymouth, to attend a funeral on 10th August and booked into The Gables, Falfield, for the night of 9th August: we were also attending The Gables for post funeral refreshments.
We were impressed with all aspects of the hotel and would recommend it"
