Always a lovely friendly welcome, beautiful, clean comfortable, well equipped bedrooms. Delicious breakfast - they are happy to cater for vegetarians and meet gluten free needs! Excellent value for money! Can't... More

I stayed in room 5, which was very clean and comfortable. The shower was pretty good and the breakfasts were superb. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They allow you to eat take away food in the dining room, which is useful if you don't fancy eating out in the evening. I would certainly stay here again.

A very well maintained B&B; clean throughout; excellent breakfast food selection and presentation; helpful, friendly hosts. Situated just outside town (easy walking distance) and handy for visits to Dartmouth, Brixham and Paignton.

We stayed here as a group of 8 and had a really good time! It had a very nice homely feel and was perfect for what we needed! They looked after us very well and helped you with anything you needed! The breakfast was excellent in the morning and was just like you would have at home! The location is... More

A lovely clean place with incredibly welcoming and helpful owners. They lay on an outstanding breakfast and couldn't do enough to help us during our stay, they even got up at 5:30 AM on a Sunday to get our group of 7 breakfast before we had to leave at 6:15. If only all B+B owners could run such a good... More

A warm welcome and decent breakfast. A well-equipped room with comfortable beds and a decent shower. Excellent location - a 10min walk into town. The downside: whilst the road noise is minimal it's very easy to hear guests in the rooms above and the plumbing was noisy. We also felt our room needed better ventilation.

We arrived in Totnes after a long stressful drive during which the satnav had packed up. I just pulled into a car park and phoned The Great Grubb: "where are we, where are you?" After a brief conversation Darrell jumped into his car, found us and guided us back; he was brilliant. We had gone there to look at a... More

Smallish but perfectly adequate twin room; bright, spotlessly clean and with a good-sized and well-appointed bathroom. Breakfast was very good - a good range of options, freshly cooked and service excellent. Would certainly visit again and recommend to others.
