    Staff very helpful and ensured that all was well. Food was good and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. Any hiccups dealt with quickly, politely and efficiently. Main drawback was the dawn chorus of seagulls.

    From start to finish it was satisfying. The warm welcome when you enter to the staff interaction during your stay. My partner and I both stayed for a few beverages and then decided we would stay for a evening meal. I had the BBQ chicken which was sublime! It's a classic but delivered perfect. My other half had a pulled... More

    Stayed here one night only, would have liked to stay longer but fully booked. We had room one, I think, which has a lovely curved window overlooking the street, very interesting for people-watching. Room itself very clean and fresh, we loved the calming cream and pale turquoise decoration. Good hot shower and good toiletries provided. Bed was king-sized, with very... More

    My wife and I were in Totnes last week and had a few meals in the downstairs bar. On each occasion the beer, food, prices, welcome and service could not possibility have been any better.

    I just spent one night here on a hurried last minute visit to lovely Totnes. The 'King Bill' could not be more central, it is smack in the very middle of this medieval town. The staff are all friendly and helpful and Alex showed a genuine pride in his bar. The window looks right into the narrow street, shrieking seagulls,... More

    Good clean basic rooms , central location , plenty of shops and eateries . Remember you are booking over a pub so they provide entertainment till 11.15 pm .

    Thank you for your kind review. Yes it is a great location in the centre of town and we are pleased that you found us good value. As the entertainment is only our back ground music system, it normally goes off about 10.30pm in the week, and a little later at weekends, as you say about 11.15pm. If you should... More
