Stayed for 1 night with 2 other couples. We were greeted with a smile from Lucy. Who proceeded to show us our rooms. We weren't disappointed. Large bright comfortable rooms, soft beds & upto date bathrooms. Couldn't fault a thing....especially with a babbling river passing by. We also booked a table for a evening meal. Again great choice in food... More

We stayed at the Wateran's Arms with my 94 yr old Mum. We booked a room for three people and it worked out perfectly. There was a Queen and a Single, and both were extremely comfortable, with ample space in the room for 3 people. The room was spotlessly clean, well equipped with thoughtful extras such as dressing gowns and... More

We stayed just for one night and found the Waterman's Arms to be an excellent choice. The staff were efficient and friendly and the room well appointed. Only problem was that the water for our shower was not very hot. We were able to take our young dog to all parts of the hotel which was great. Advice about local... More

Booked last minute as the world and his wife filled the Devon coast, found a beautiful pub for the evening sitting on the river dart with lots of outside seating to enjoy a great bottle of wine by the waters edge before heading inside to our little candle lit table to enjoy huge rack of ribs with all the trimmings!...

The location is stunning. Unfortunately the food was very poor, we eat out on a regular basis, so where disappointed on this occasion. We had garlic mushrooms for a starter, when it came the mushrooms where just laid on top of a bagette, not very inventive. I had stir fry duck, it wasnt what I thought it would be when... More

Stayed here recently and had real mixed feelings about it. Our welcome wasn't the best as the pub was quite busy and we were told we had to order food right away. We just wanted a drink and to relax after a long drive, without being pressured to order at 6.45pm. However, we did end up ordering around 7.30pm and... More

We stayed here 2 nights, and really loved the place. We ate in the pub both nights (fish & chips one night, home made pie the next, both good). We really enjoyed the friendliness and good service. We had been looking for accommodation in or near Dartmouth, booked the last available room (a twin) at short notice, and were very... More
