Had a thoroughly pampered stay with Rob and Marylin, we enjoyed every minute of it. Nothing was too much trouble and they were a mine of useful information on local walks, restaurants, places to visit and how to get there.

This B&B is very comfortable and clean. Rob & Marilyn are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was served at a time to suit and was delicious. It's an easy 10 minute walk downhill to a wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants and the river Dart where you can take various boat trips or ferry across to... More

It's almost time for us to leave this wonderful B&B, and I don't want to go! Our two-day stay has been lovely from start to finish, never mind a bit of rain. There was plenty to see and do in Dartmouth, a most charming riverside town, and the warmth and hospitality of Rob and Marilyn Bird made everything that much... More

This is an exceptionally comfortable and pleasant bed and breakfast. We were made to feel so welcome; the suite of rooms were wonderful - clean, comfortable and had everything we could wish for. In the evening we walked down into town with many recommendations of where to eat and enjoyed our evening in Dartmouth very much. Then we slept really... More

My wife and I came to Dartmouth to attend families' weekend at the naval college. We chose Birds partly because of the good reviews but also because of its proximity to our destination. How lucky we were with our choice! The accommodation was everything described and more - almost a self-contained flat rather than simply a bedroom/bathroom combination. It was... More

We stayed here for the second time this year. We loved it so much the first time we just had to go again. We felt very welcome at Birds almost like a home from home with better breakfasts (5*) and delicious home baked scones. Looking forward to next time.

I would highly recommend Bird's bed and breakfast in Dartmouth. It is the only place we would think of staying when we are in Dartmouth. Rob and Marilyn are impeccable hosts, they make you feel so welcome as does Twiggy the chattiest cat I know. The location of the bed and breakfast is ideal for town, and Rob and Marilyn... More

We have stayed with Marilyn and Rob several times over the years, but never here. As expected the standard of both the welcome, and accommodation was as high as ever, if that can be at all possible, its very hard to improve on perfection. The breakfast was excellent, and as for Robs rock cakes, well say no more. Pure joy... More
