Went to Tavistock as a group of 10 Blokes.. Stopped at the Bunkhouse, From the second we arrived were made to feel very welcome. The Landlady was very friendly as were the other staff. The rooms were a good size and the beds really were comfortable as commented by most of the group. Breakfast in the morning was served at... More

Our small group of pensioners visiting Tavistock called in here on the off-chance and were warmly welcomed. It is a traditional small town pub which has been recently taken over by new managers who seem to be planning all sorts of entertainment. They operate a 'Happy Hour' which lasts for four hours 3pm until 7pm and have live music every... More

I've stayed in quite a few bunkhouses now and the set up in this one was excellent. 8 bunks to a dorm with privacy curtains, your own shelves and light. There is also a really good drying room and the staff are happy to help. Beds were comfortable, especially compared to other bunkhouses where I tend to find the mattresses... More

The Bunkhouse at the Union Inn is fantastic value, the dorm beds were very comfortable, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with great shower facilities. It's a great place to stop with a fab pub next door that has good beer, a wholesome breakfast and a Landlord for who nothing is too much trouble. (Ganges Indian restaurant also highly recommended)

Fabulously clean and spotless bunkhouse! Very good value. Comfy bunks - luckily (for us) we were the only three people staying so we had a little bunk pod each. Clean sheets, towels provided at no extra cost. Tokens given for the showers - yes they were on a timer, but I had plenty of hot water and had finished before... More

Fantastic modern bunkhouse at the back of the Union Inn, which is a one minute cycle from route 27. The bunks are private and really comfy, and breakfast was excellent. Would recommend a visit, and whilst you are in Tavistock don't miss the Bird's Nest Chinese restaurant!

The accommodation is spotless - this is a different class of bunkhouse. Comfortable beds, sheets duvets and towels provided. Locked cycle storage, relaxed and friendly. ideal stop off in Tavistock, close to the town centre with numerous places to eat

Tucked just off the main road of Tavistock, you'll find the pub "the union". The owner is such a character, and you'll warm to him straight away. He'll make your stay worth while. The accommodation is tucked out the back of the pub. It's spotless, with double bunk pods and a curtain for privacy. The beds are so comfy too,... More

Stayed at the Tavistock Bunkhouse at the end of day 2 of our Devon Coast to Coast cycle trip. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Cycle storage is secure and dry, and there is a hose so you can clean your bikes off if you like. The bunkhouse itself was really nice - clean, dry and warm on what... More

Very friendly an comedic owner. Comfy beds, great showers, big breakfast, and Possibly most important for those looking for somewhere to stay on a cycling trip, a very safe and dry place to keep your bike, unlike the sheds they so often offer at Youth Hostels. Good eateries nearby too!
