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.

A bijou room in quiet location away from the road, Room 1 has a brand new shower and a small double bed, generous for one person. Excellent breakfast choices including fresh fruit, good coffee and the huge fry-up but I went for the perfect boiled egg served by friendly hosts in a light, airy room overlooking the back garden space....

we stayed for one night passing through doing a charity fundraising tour of the southwest coast. Everything about this B & B was great. Friendly, helpful and caring people who made us feel most welcome without being intrusive. Wonderful breakfast room and despite the house not being in the centre it was easy to walk out in the evening to... More

Stayed a few days, room was small, warm and adequate for needs and as overlooked the garden was peaceful, quiet and had the added bonus of listening to the birds in the morning. Toilet has macerator so a bit noisy but only for a few moments. Lovely fluffy towels, nice shower and complimentary toiletries so overall good experience. Breakfast, well... More

Stayed for a few days, comfortable room, small but clean and modern bathroom. Excellent breakfast with home made bread and good local produce. The owners very friendly and helpful. A short walk into town and not the prettiest area of Totnes, but excellent value for money.
