"The Dartmouth Hotel is located under an hour to Exeter Airport, the M5 and Plymouth, and offers superb space for corporate events, management retreats and business meetings."
Garin Davies, Chief Executive, Vine Hotels
The Hotel sits in 200 acres of South Devon countryside, and offers 35 bedrooms and suites, seven self-catering lodges, a nine hole and 18-hole Championship Golf Course, the Dartmouth Spa and a Bar and Bistro. The Hotel’s two event spaces for wedding, meeting and conferences provide space for up to 90 guests in the Kingsbridge Suite and 100 guests in the Dartmouth Suite, which also overlooks the golf course and provides a sun terrace for outdoor drinks and dining.
Vine Hotels adds the Best Western The Dartmouth Hotel, Golf and Spa to its growing portfolio of hotels and venues under a management contract with owners. The group also includes five properties in Sheffield, the Best Western Cresta Court hotel in Altrincham, The Charlecote Pheasant in Stratford and the Mercure Dolphin Southampton Centre hotel.

Greg Dyke is the majority owner of Dartmouth Hotel, Golf & Spa as well as Vine Hotels, and this announcement represents a further strategic positioning of these two companies.
Vine Hotels chief executive Garin Davies commented: “The Dartmouth Hotel is an exceptional property with immense potential. Set in a beautiful rural location near to Dartmouth, the venue offers a blend of high-quality leisure facilities with two golf courses and a luxury spa. It is also an established and popular wedding and local private events venue, which we will encourage.
“The UK staycation market has been an important sector for the Hotel, and I believe that with the investment of our sales and marketing support, the property will be in a prime position to further capitalise on this next year.
“Importantly, The Dartmouth Hotel is located under an hour to Exeter Airport/M5 and Plymouth, and offers superb space for corporate events, management retreats and business meetings. We recognise the immediate limitation for all hoteliers on live events business, but with a long-term perspective for this Hotel, we see potential to grow this market in 2021/22.”
