My partner Lou and I frequently travel to Gunnislake to enjoy a Sunday roast at the Tavistock Arms. We're fortunate to be surrounded by nice pubs to eat in so I think it's a tribute to the Tavistock Arms that we prefer it over all the closer puts for our Sunday lunch. As some other reviewers have pointed out (with... More

Great food and very friendly. We had a good nights sleep in a comfy bed, nice warm shower. The locals are entertaining in the bar and they serve good beer :-) I have seen several reviews on here for this Hotel and think they are a little unfair. Yes the tv is only 14inch, but it's a bedroom what more... More

Stayed for 2 nights clean room and clean bathroom shower was good. Breakfast was very nice and cooked to order. Good service. Could do with some updating though . Within driving distance of many places worth visiting.

You couldn't. We arrived and the bar was silent and cold. The fire not lit. Bob the owner who later in the story will deny he is Bob, but Mr Hughes, however he is both. Bob Hughes. This man doesn't want you staying. He has a sort of smug lip, for he knows you will regret it. Mrs j ordered... More

Have I had my refund yet for... More

I booked this Hotel for one night via booking.com. I then had a telephone call and an email to say that they could not accommodate my booking as they were full. I have just checked my bank statement to find that to my amazement they have charged me for the booking. Not impressed.

The shower was good, possibly because it had " blown up" just prior to our arrival and was replaced the first afternoon. Everything else was between poor to terrible. The window in the room had a huge cobweb. The towel rail was broken. An electrical socket was unsecured. The door lock was broken. The WiFi failed to work. The bed... More

Before starting on a long journey back to London we thought that we needed a good breakfast. We saw the sign outside and decided to stop. There is a car park in the side turning opposite which was £1.20 for 2 hour. We went into the bar and the landlord took our orders. Full English Breakfast was served with fresh... More

I call before booking, to ask a few questions. To be told not to book via the agency to call them bk, and pay over the phone. Didn't think much of it. Upon arrival Were told they had over booked. And we're staying a few doors down. This place was cheaper. But no refund given. This happens a lot 'read... More

Better than most pub B&Bs, decent beer and decor, reasonable priced good pub food. Pity it's bang on the road so a bit noisy. Clean bedrooms. Good value. I'd stay here again, not sure that m'lady would enjoy it.
