Had breakfast here one Sunday Morning and they really need to advertise it more. Great little spot in the sun, by the river, for a Sunday morning breakkie, but we were one of about 4 tables in the place. I had a bacon and sausage sandwich, something simple yet so good. My partner had scrambled eggs on toast and she... More

Happened upon the Steam Packet inn and stopped for dinner on a Friday without booking. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was tasty and arrived in good time. Despite being busy, we were attended to efficiently with a cheery smile. Would return if in Totnes again.

The Steam Packet Inn, lovely pub with a friendly atmosphere and in a great position on the river Dart. Good outdoor space for sitting and having food and drinks. The food is very good and competitively priced, the service throughout our stay was excellent. We stayed for 2 nights as we were going to a wedding locally, the room (no.... More

Excellent food and service. Generous portions of meat and delicious gravy. Good value at around £10. Empty places all round! A gorgeous view over the River Dart and plenty of room in the car park. This the second time our family has been here and had excellent food. Lovely outdoor area to sit and a quaint interior with lots of... More

These people want you to enjoy yourself. Warmly welcoming, it's not haute cuisine, just very generous servings of all sorts of good pub food with a winning smile. Stay there and get an equally good breakfast and they're still smiling. Would we go there again.....absolutely

Stayed 1 night in April, in room with shower. Lovely modern bathroom and nice décor, liked the prints very much. Only booked one night but unwell and had room for the day while I waited for my coach. Comfortable, pleasant room to chill in and watch TV. Very peaceful, quiet location, although over pub and outside seating. . 5 minutes... More

We stayed here for three nights last week, we had room two for 2 nights which was a great room, the view wasn't, good but the room and the bathroom were very nice . We had to change to room three for the final night and although the view was good preferred the first room. But would recommend.

Stayed one night and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fixtures and fittings in the room especially the bathroom 4* Standard. Great location next to the river and convenient for the town.

This is probably one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in, actually. Well decorated, the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was great--huge tub, everything was very white and spotlessly clean. Possibly a bit on the small side for some, but we really liked it. The breakfast was also VERY good (although I thought it was included in the... More
