Despite a very late arrival after a ferry crossing from Brittany we were welcomed by the owner of the hotel and given advice regarding the use of the television and WiFi and the security pad system. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast provided a vast choice of cereals as well as fruit, yogurt, crispy... More

There wasn't much of a sign to find the b&b but the place was clean, warm and welcoming. The room was large with plenty of ameneties, including a microwave and generous size fridge. Everything was well set out and would suit all kinds of travellers or contractors. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely return.

We stayed here during August 2013. The welcome was warm and friendly. Overall house and decor was good. Nice large bedroom and bathroom. Tea and coffee and cake / biscuit available on arrival. A somewhat different breakfast arrangement, but very very good. The local pub restaurant will pick you up and return you back if you want a drink and... More

We have stayed at Arlington on 4 occasions and have always received excellent hospitality. Rooms are large and well equipped, with fridge, microwave and toaster, with a ready supply of tea, coffee, fresh milk all day, and even biscuits and cakes. Breakfast is plentiful and varied The owner is always very pleasant and helpful for any matter.

the lady who runs the Arlington, Dianna, was very accommodating and although she wasn't there when we arrived we had expected that as she called us several times before we arrived to make sure everything was OK, and she had made arrangements for us to get access to the rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious, breakfast was self service,... More

The lady who runs this B&B is friendly. The rooms in which we have stayed have always been clean. The style varies between different rooms. Most of the time, we have had self-service breakfast on our own - there is a wide selection of different items, including cereal, fruit juice, baked beans, flapjack and, often, delicious freshly baked scones. Wifi... More

You do not need a car (although useful, if you go on the M5)! We have a frequent (twenty minute) bus service to Cullompton/Tiverton and Exeter. The restaurant will collect and return you for no charge. We generally leave the toiletries per person; this incident was human error, for which we apologised and repleced, when the guest mentioned the deficiency... More

There was nobody anywhere in sight when we arrived and I honestly thought we must have been at the wrong house as I missed the sign on the main road with the name of the B and B. There was no cars in the car park and a large broken pot plant holder and a pile of gravel in front... More

I am afraid that this guest must have arrived early, as I met them at the door at check in time unaware that they had arrived any earlier, because I was feeding the livestock. Hence, I gave no apologies! The post it note was for someone else. The other guests were out, so there were no other cars. I am... More

Nice and friendly welcome,good clean and spacious rooms. Nothing more to add really as the other (good) reviews have just about got it covered. The short journey for the evening meal was no problem as we took advantage of their free taxi service.We stayed for one night while working in the area and found it ideal for our purpose.

Great little B&B, friendly owner and rooms are clean, well equipped and modern with free Wifi. En suite bathroom was great and very powerful shower. Breakfast is not memorable but sufficient and you are left to your own devices which is nice. Only thing I'm not used to as a city dweller were the farm animals and the cockerel which... More

This is a lovely place to stay, which is really different to just about anywhere else I've ever stayed. Well equipped room with a fridge. Help-yourself breakfast and snacks left in the dining room. Farm animals in the back garden. Only downside is you have to travel for an evening meal. We received a very warm welcome after driving through... More
