Second time we have stayed here and again we were welcomed with a tray of tea in the room . I really can,t understand some of these reviews . Yes it is an old house ( 1700 ) so the furniture in the rooms reflect that , leather and chrome would look completely out of place here ! our room... More

I was very disappointed with this B&B. The bathroom ceiling was covered with mould, and the shower was dirty, so I felt very uncomfortable using the bathroom. Furnishings and decor were tired and old fashioned. The hallway outside the room smelt. I had a room at the front of the house and was woken throughout the night by traffic and... More

We chose this B and B as it was close to Pebblebed vineyard which we were visiting.that day. First impressions were ruined by the fact that the owners had no record of our booking. Luckily we had a copy of the confirmation email which we had been sent. We did get an apology but there was only one room available... More

We didn't stay here as we had rented a cottage in Topsham but were walking past when we saw a sign for a " special". Bacon sandwich and a coffee for £3. We chose to have the sandwich made with granary bread and I can honestly say it was the best bacon sandwich I have ever had. The friendly waitress... More

We so want to be kind about this place as we do prefer places with character but honestly it's like going into a 70's time warp. The initial impression is of a very dark gloomy hall with ( at 6pm ) a pervasive smell of tired kitchen fat wafting up what could be a lovely staircase. Add low watt lightbulbs,... More

We recently stayed on our tour of Devon. We had two rooms, both of which were very comfortable and good value. Broadway House is a characterful place to stay, very different from modern B&Bs. One needs to be prepared for something different. Everyone enjoyed it's nice eccentricity enormously and we were lucky to stay a second time at short notice... More

Big room, old but clean, WiFi quite location-sensitive on the top floor. Two nights. Like staying at an aunt's house. Tea room which operates most days generates cooking odours - nothing bad but certainly present in the foyer. I agree with the other writers - the 'being met with an offer of tea in the room" immediately upon arrival was... More

We stayed at Broadway House for two nights in order to attend a wedding. The couple were very welcoming and we had tea brought up to the room. It was excellent strong "Devonshire" tea and we can see why the tea room is award winning. We were in room 8 which is big yet cosy with genuine shutters and sash... More

We loved it, a beautiful georgian house, not done up and with real character. It's not a modern cosy place but it is a wonderful experience. The room was enormous and the people running it were fantastic. We were met with "would you like a cup of tea" and a pot was brought up to our room, the first time... More

We found this B&B very gloomy and depressing. Decor was shabby and furniture uncomfortable. Lots of traffic noise outside our bedroom. We arrived on a Sunday and were not allowed to book in until after 5.00 p.m. Breakfast was poor and you are NOT allowed to put the teapot on the tablecloth! We had booked for two nights but gave...
