The only positive was the fact that the B&B was two minutes walk from the Railway Station. We were visiting friends for one evening, it was the end of a 5 day trip from Scotland to Dartmouth and Penzance. The double bed just fitted into the bedroom. The extremely small shower room (?) had a sliding door and a small... More

Was very convenient from the station as we were simply traveling down from London and back the next day to experience the Dawlish stretch and a few bridges. B&B was comfortable and an excellent breakfast served in the morning.

This B&B is conveniently located: close to the railway station and the harbour area, walking distance from the city centre. Even if it doesn't have a private parking, it's easy to find a parking space nearby. The B&B owners are really nice. Cleanliness in the bedroom was't perfect. More attention should be paid to this detail. Despite being on the... More

After reading some reviews on here I was a little worried ... but I shouldn't have been. Place was spotless, a little dated but freshly painted and rooms really comfortable, hosts were inviting and extremely helpfull. Breakfast was delicious every morning and all requests were met. Noise wasn't an issue .. we had an inner window which cut out all... More

Visited for the day. Booked over the internet for £80. Room not particularly clean and seriously outdated. However, the worst part was the fact that our room adjoined a pub. I have stayed in many wonderful pubs. However, it felt like that our room was on the dance floor of the pub until 2am!! Then awoke at 6am by the... More

The overall experience was spoiled by two things, the first being the bad night we spent as the duvet was too small for the double bed, We kept waking- cold- with no cover! Although good cereal and fruit were provided at breakfast, the bread was very poor and the kipper not enjoyable. The bacon and egg were fine though. The... More

The additional charge for children (£20 or £25 depending on age) can make what seems like a reasonable stay into an expensive and poor value family room. The total price of the room is not clear and transparent on all booking sites. The family room we stayed in was small, dated and very basic. Disappointed. Wouldn't return or recommend.

'Total price' of family rooms does not include kids, who are charged £20-25 each per night at the B&B! Therefore a seemingly competitive £55 room can become a very uncompetitive £105! The first we knew of this was on arrival, when we were rudely told that this is covered by the standard terms and conditions. A subsequent very careful look... More
