I have just come back from one of the most enjoyable weekends of my life at this lovely hotel. We booked every room for two nights in order to celebrate my 40th Birthday - so here are ten reasons why we would come back again (and one of the guests has already made another booking!) 1 Excellent customer service from...

The old house has its charme but when we entered the room (Nelson) we found hair on the bedsheets. After talking to the Manager the sheets where changed but a bad feeling stayed. But I need to say that the straff was very friendly and helpful all the time. The view from the room is nice but since the kitchen... More

We had a romantic candlelit tapas meal here in our last night, shame we didn't go earlier on our holiday. Mushroom bruschetta and chorizo in cider were lovely, staff very attentive too! Would come back and maybe stay over next time hidden gem.

Bayards Cove is a lovely boutiquey hotel in the middle of Dartmouth. Great cafe downstairs with tapas at night, breakfast was delicious. Room was clean with great decor as is downstairs - just had a great, comfortable feel to it. The couple who ran it were v helpful. Highly recommend this B&B. Only downside was parking which is an issue... More

The hotel is in a prime location to access Dartmoor, and the surrounding southern Devon area, the hotel was very clean, food was very good, they served Tapas as well, the hotel itself can also be used by non residents for refreshments, we will be going back!

Had two rooms here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Friendly and helpful staff, characterful rooms, tasty breakfasts, evening bar, morning coffee served. All good. Parking in Dartmouth is a nightmare, with most places one or two hours stays. However there are six unrestricted public parking places next to the Inn, so if you are lucky you might get one of...

We enjoyed first a coffee, then lunch and finally a take out drink to enjoy on the cove of the same name. All was enjoyable, the building has loads of character gleaned from hundreds of years of history but with a modern twist. What made this place stand out though, were the staff. Genuinely welcoming and friendly, immaculately presented. We... More

We were in Drake which was a gorgeous room - modern rustic decor. Has a tv and dvd player. There were free dvds to use. The only problem was that it was so hot. There was a fan and they gave us another when asked so that was good. The living area was very comfortable but the bathroom was boiling.... More

Great relaxed evening of Tapas with two young children welcomed. Super service and atmosphere with live music too. Would recommend booking as we went back on our last night to find a private booking had been taken for the whole place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This small friendly hotel is one of Dartmouth’s oldest and most interesting buildings. It was originally constructed as a Tudor merchant's house and would have been a welcome sight when the Pilgrim Fathers stopped off at Bayards Cove on their way to America in August 1620. The hotel is conveniently situated in Bayards Cove in the centre of this lovely town, with the market and main shopping area only a short level walk away. Guests are sure to enjoy the unique character of the hotel and its thoughtfully refurbished luxury rooms, all of which have freeview, televisions and DVD players, and some also enjoy views over the water of the cove. ... more   less
