Lovely old building in a quiet lane, grocer's on the corner, parking, much thought has gone into the place (e,g, note on the wall telling me where a spare key is if I lock myself out), superb breakfast, comfortable room. Very highly recommended. One small gripe, Do the (mainly elderly) guests really want pop music at breakfast?

What a pleasure it was to find The Old Forge Inn at Totnes. We were in town for a comedy night and wanted somewhere local to stay. The Old Forge Inn is in the town and everything is less than a 5 minute walk. Very clean rooms, parking and a good breakfast all excellent. In addition they have a "secret... More

We were recommended to stay here by a friend who has family living nearby and we weren't disappointed.. Rooms were immaculately clean (yes they are small but it is an Old Forge - not sure what some people expect), the bathroom had clearly been recently refurbished and there was tea & coffee making facilities. I'm easy to please as long... More

I arrived at the Old Forge late at night; even so, the proprietor was still up (I'd been given a fall-back solution in a case reception was closed), and so I was in and in my room in a trice. As previous reviewers have said, the rooms are smallish, but sweet, clean and in good decorative order. Quiet too... the... More

After a few years of coming to Totnes I still believe that the Old Forge is excellent value of money. The rooms are always spotless and kept up to date, the breakfast never fails to let me down, and the hotel is in the perfect location being next to town and not next to a main road! I love the...

We stayed here earlier in august and it was truly delightful, we arrived quite late at night but arrangements were made for us to collect the keys and it was a very easy and stressful arrival. We found our way to our room which was small but what can you expect from a 600 year old building ! We loved... More

We had the garden room, which was "cute & quaint", just don' try to swing a cat !! The room is neat, clean well equipped & comfortable, but very small. I would assume the "King size bed"rooms have more space, but this is a converted old forge after all. Breakfast was great. The Old Forge is well positioned, in a... More

Adequate hotel, nothing special and I wouldn't rush back but perfectly satisfactory for visiting Totnes. Close to the centre. Room was fine with all the basics. Shower room was a bit pokey with one of those freestanding plastic showers which I always worry might collapse around me :) (it didn't!) Duvet was synthetic so I was too hot when under... More

Thank you for your review, we are so sorry that you only found our establishment adequate. I really wish you had spoken to us about the bedding, we can do nothing to help if the only time we know of the problem is on Tripadvisor. I would have been happy to provide you with a lighter weight quilt or a... More

We stayed here one night in early July. Our room was extremely cramped with no space to place our luggage, and our private bathroom was placed in the corridor. The lock on the bathroom door was broken, so we could not lock it. The bed vas very hard and a bit short for a person of average height. The house... More
