    We had a lovely short stay at this B&B. Our room was just outside so we did not have to go through reception each time which was handy as we had a couple of late nights. The room and shower were small but this did not bother us too much as we were only there to sleep and get ready... More

    Just returned home after a two night stay here. We found the owners friendly and helpful, our room wasn't huge but was very clean and comfortable. There is a pleasant garden that we were able to use as the weather was gorgeous. There really wasn't much to complain about although we nearly didn't book after looking at a recent review.... More

    In response to this review, we have gone through all our bookings for the last month and we have not had any guests staying from Exeter. We are a reasonably small establishment and can always work out which guests have posted a review. Considering these guests stayed in July and we are now on the fifth, we are puzzled as... More

    Our garden room was lovely and looking out on the garden a delight. However, the walls between ours and the next were thin, our neighbour was not noisy but we could easily hear a conversation on the phone through the wall. Also because it was summer and there was only a white blind across the large window, woke at 5am... More

    Looked this up before we visited but found the mixed reviews confusing so wasn't sure what to expect. Our experience as follows. Plus: Room was clean and surrounding area quiet. Minus: The thin stud walls between bedroom and neighbouring room made for a noisy experience as even the smallest sound carried. This is not to do with the fact the... More

    Just returned from three nights at this lovely little Guest House. We stayed in room 10 which was plenty big enough with an extra single bed and a sofa. Our bed was extremely comfortable. There was also as veranda with table and chairs to sit in the sun. It was our Wedding Anniversary while we were there and the owners... More

    Stayed in November so it was quiet but still a good atmosphere in the pub.mgreat choice of beers and the one meal we had in our three night stay was excellent and reasonably priced. Very close to the town (5 mins to the bottom of the main St) and has parking which is a must in Totnes!
