For the price, this B&B is perfect. En suite, clean, a friendly reception and a stones throw from the beach and the strip of bars and shops. The room and TV were small but that's what you expect for the price. No complaints, will return.

On that day in Totnes, my partner and I were looking for somewhere to stay in/surrounding Totnes. The iPad with data (for internet browsing) assisted me to locate this great accommodation at a reasonable price within easy drive to these places, such as Totnes, Brixham etc. Carrington Guest House was listed as the availability on the same day so we...

Thanks for your Review, We are limited in space although we are thinking of putting a TV in the dining room which is open until very late for guest to sit in, had we been informed we would have been able to tell you about this room. The room you stayed in is having refurbishment work this winter and that... More

Read the reviews on this guest house and as people recommended the breakfast I stayed one night... The breakfast was rushed because the bacon and the sausage was slightly uncooked .. Mushrooms we're microwaved ... Thank goodness the toast was hot!.. Good location extremely clean and tidy....just worth the money.

Our Breakfasts are cooked to order and the mushrooms sautéed in butter, if there was a problem I am very sorry but only wish you had shown your concerns whilst you where here. Guests are welcome to stay in the dining room for as long as they like to eat their breakfast... More

Friendly hosts, great breakfast, spotless rooms. This is the second time we have used this B&B and the hosts have always been very friendly and couldn't do enough, even giving us a lift one night to save us on taxi - excellent place.

Stopped last weekend Fri/Sat nights. Fabulous bargain, Very clean, all you could need and an absolutely fabulous breakfast( This was one of the best I have ever had! And I am a really picky sod!). Cannot express how highly I rate this place and at a realistic price. Brian & Angeline cannot be more helpful. 5 stars is not enough.... More
