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.

I was really surprised by how small the room was, we have never stayed in a bed and breakfast with such a small room, although the bathroom was quite spacious, but hey you are not going to spend as much time in there as in the bedroom. There were little touches like the thermal cup for you to use during... More

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us, but wish you had told us at the time that you did not like your room as there was another available with a garden view. Guests are always asked on arrival if they have any special requests or dietary requirements for breakfast. We do keep unsmoked bacon... More

Me and a mate took a rare long weekend motorcycle trip to Totnes to visit a friend and stayed here. Safe parking, clean room and decent breakfast are all important to us and are all provided at the Great Grubb. The friendly helpful staff can't be faulted. Well equipped shower room and all decor etc in good order the whole... More

Very clean and comfortable room, with a well-looked after bathroom, a ten minute walk from central Totnes. The breakfast was excellent. A warm welcome, too. Good value for money. I would certainly visit again if in the area.

We arrived to a happy smile from the landlady who then showed us to our rooms. Therooms were clean and comfortable. We had breakfast in The Great Grubb and really enjoyed it. I'd be happy to recommend this B&B to other users and will probably stay again on our next trip to South Devon

I LOVE this B&B. My partner and I stayed three nights in June for our mini-break. Clean and tidy, quaint and welcoming. Our vegan diet was catered for with no issue. Lovely breakfast selection. Ample parking and a nice suburb location, felt very safe. Cute hilltop garden was a nice place to eat our takeaway one evening. TV, Wifi, tea... More
