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

Hello, I originally checked into the Old Forge for three nights(but didn't end up staying a night) I was greeted warmly by the man who runs the place. He was kind enough to let me check in a bit early as well. After a long train journey that was very welcome. I soon realised there was no wireless in my... More

In response to your review, our website states that we have "Free wireless broadband available". We don't consider this misleading but are very sorry if you felt that it was. Because of the layout of this 600 year old building, it is not available in all our rooms but is available on all of the ground floor of the main... More

We recently spent two nights in this hotel. The room was small but adequate. Tea stains and two black hairs on the tea tray and a spider in the bathroom remained on the second day but otherwise the room seemed clean. The owners do little to sell their amenities or those of the wider town although advice was offered when... More

Thank you for your review. If you were at all unhappy with your accommodation we are always available to sort any problems out. After speaking to the lady who tidied your room, she did comment that you had brought various types of tea with you and and there were a lot of used tea leaves around the tea making area.... More

Me and my partner stayed here late last year when we were visiting some family in Totnes and it was absolutely lovely. We had a king size double en-suite and it was absolutely spotless, the room was very comfortable and the bed was also very comfy! A very important part of the B&B experience. We stayed for two nights and... More
