Nice bar for after dinner drinks and great location to wander round and enjoy historical Topsham. We had a very nice room - stylish with modern touch and excellent shower. Breakfast - full English - was... More

The second time we have stayed at The Globe and again we enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are all delightfully friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble and they were keen to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves. The beer is well kept, wine at sensible prices and the food was excellent. Good breakfasts (both continental and cooked... More

Love this old Coaching Inn located right in the centre of the main stretch of this delightful Devon town. Great, friendly staff who were welcoming and efficient. Food in the evenings was also pretty good generally. (Also dog-friendly which is a real bonus). Will definitely stay here again.

From the moment we walked through the door to the time we left the following morning we were really impressed with the welcome and help of all the staff at this hotel. Our room was spacious with a good sized bathroom and was quiet overlooking the court yard. Ate out at a local pub in the evening and the continental... More

An intriguing blend of ancient and modern architecture combine to make a really top class location for lunch, dinner and an overnight stay. Fast, friendly service and not overpriced. Topsham is well served with eating places and this new addition is well worth giving a try.

Good location in the centre of Topsham. Parking in public carpark a few minutes walk away. Nice cosy bar and restaurant. Staff very pleasant. Food is good. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean. However it was tiny and storage was limited or inaccessible. We were there for 3 nights so needed to put things away. We were close... More

What a fabulous hotel! Spotlessly clean and the best breakfast ever! Highly recommend this little gem in East Devon. The staff are extremely friendly and work tirelessly to make sure everything is 100% all of the time. The attention to details at this hotel is second to none. Beautifully decorated rooms and the hotel in general is in fantastic shape.... More
