We have just stayed at The Old Forge, and although we found the room to be spotlessly clean and tidy, we did think that the bathroom was tired and needed updating. Breakfast was also disappointing,especially having to do your own toast (which takes about 5minutes!) using supermarket packet bread. The cooked breakfast options were plenty, but the chances of getting... More

Thank you for your review and we are very sorry that you were not entirely happy with your stay. The bathrooms in the guest house have all been renovated in the last five years, the one in that particular room about three years ago. Why was breakfast so disappointing? You say the cooked options are plenty! We give guests the... More

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
