My wife and I have dined here maybe six times over the last six months or so, so my review is based on our dining experience rather that the B and B experience. That being said, if things upstairs are anything like downstairs any one booking an overnight stay here would be in for a treat! I would definitely recommend... More

ideally placed B&B for a stopover on a drive from North Devon to Edinburgh. Easy to find, with plenty of places to get an evening meal within walking distance. Clean, warm and welcoming. Good breakfast that set us up for the rest of the day. On street parking, but no problem finding a space.

I have now stayed here on a few occasions whilst working in the area and once with my partner on our way up to Scotland. The rooms are superb and the staff are excellent but the absolute winner for me is the breakfast!!! When working in the North West again I will Always stay here!!! See you soon

We can not recommend this guest house enough. Fantastic hosts, great decor, spotlessly clean, fabulous extras ( brownies, flasks of fresh milk, dressing gown ect.), and a absolutely delicious English breakfast along side cereals, croissants, muffins ect. Nothing will disappoint you with this hidden treasure.

Really lovely décor, with lovely touches in the room, gorgeous brownies, lovely china cups and glasses and very comfortable, the bathroom was a private bathroom but across the hall, with lovely toiletries. The towels unfortunately smelt of cooking smells and not fresh and clean. There was no long mirror which would have been nice. There was free Wi-Fi and the... More

Absolutely love this place. Have stayed here twice. The welcome is warm and unobtrusive. The rooms are immaculate and well equipped with some lovely touches - fruit bowl, chocolate brownie, bath robe, decent toiletries free wifi. The breakfasts are varied and delicious. Central location but very quiet at night. Astonishingly good value . Lovely owners. Keep doing what you're doing... More

Stayed here just for one night. Exceptionally clean and tidy, lovely big room with very comfy bed. Lovely to get fruit and a couple of chocs in my room. Amazing breakfast spread! Friendly hosts. Definitely a good place to stay. Would go back and recommend to others.
