We stayed for 2 nights at this very comfortable and clean guest house which provided everything that we would have liked e.g. - a pretty, spacious room and en-suite (both with plenty of storage space), a comfy bed, the softest of towels plus ample parking. Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were hot and nicely cooked.... More

It was lovely to meet you both and see what Amber House looked like 40 years ago. We hope you didn't run into any more parking attendants on the rest of your holiday :) More

Spent 4 nights with our spaniel. Very clean, lovely breakfasts with numerous little touches that make a stay more enjoyable. Dogs are well catered for with towels in the entrance, water bowl outside and of course the treat of a sausage each morning. This a truly dog friendly establishment. Don't be put of if you don't have a dog as... More

Another wonderful stay at Amber House and everything lovely again. Ideal for dog lovers however just as nice if travelling without pets. It's the myriad of well thought out little touches which makes every stay so good. This time we visited Dartmouth on the steam train which is a great day out. Dog friendly pub in the nearby park -...
