I needed somewhere clean and comfortable to spend a night in Totnes when visiting my daughter. Our previous attempt to stay at The Great Grubb was thwarted as there were no rooms, but a single room in January didn't prove to be a problem. The b&b is a few minutes walk from the centre of Totnes, with ample parking if... More

Found this on Trip Advisor, and can only agree with what everybody else is saying about the Great Grubb! Friendly service, comfy room, great breakfasts. What more would anyone want more from a B&B? Yes, the room's are slightly on the small size, but it's not if you are going to spend all day cooped up in the room, and... More

I looked for a b&b in Devon as we wanted to visit Agatha Christie's house. What I found was a b&b with an unusual name, which matched it's title, all the food was locally sourced and tasted fantastic. Shirley and Darrell were excellent hosts. We had a flexible itinerary which allowed us to go where we wished including Agatha Christie's... More

A short stroll from the main part of town, the Great Grubb provided a quiet retreat. The bed was enormous and comfortable (room 3) the shower wonderfully hot and the breakfast large (and vegetarians no problem). Nothing was any trouble, and the welcome was warm (unlike the weather unfortunately). I can thoroughly recommend the Great Grubb. It was handy for... More

We spent Easter weekend at the Great Grubb and really enjoyed it. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet with a truly fabulous shower - great pressure. Breakfast was delicious and the owners and staff very helpful indeed, especially Sheila and Jasmine! What we describe as a genuinely welcoming B&B with impeccable attention to detail. Heartily recommend!

Planning a visit to my oldest friend who lives in a village 3 miles away, I asked her to recommend some accommodation in the area. Travelling to the West Country frequently with two children at school in Somerset we are used to staying in the usual Premier Inn type establishment. After being told by my friend that whilst there were... More

Our initial disappointment at the rather cramped room was offset by the comfortable bed, well equipped bathroom and overall cleanliness. Breakfast was as good as we have had anywhere including 4* hotels. Not cheap given location and room size. overall well done the Grubbs!

If you're into feline gymnastics, then this place isn't for you, but joking aside I wholeheartedly recommend this little B&B. Although small, the rooms have everything you need for your stay. We stayed 5 nights and had no real complaints other than that the room was too hot, so I turned down the radiator. As far as facilities go, there... More

I stayed here for two nights: although I booked a single room it was more like a small double, which was a nice surprise. The room was cosy and welcoming with a lovely modern bathroom and there were some nice touches like the toiletries in the bathroom and the filter coffee/filtered water and chocolates provided in the bedroom. It was... More
