Just returned from a two night stay, motorcycling in Devon and Cornwall. I was on my own and stayed in the single room. I was greeted with a warm welcome and I enjoyed a few beers in the bar after a very wet ride. The room was warm, comfortable and clean - a little cramped with all my wet bike... More

The road leading to the BnB needs urgent attention!! (potholes), on arrival the ghastly site of rubbish piled up on what one could only assume was a spare bedroom on the top left balcony was enough to put us of straight away, the whole buildings looks very run down and the inside is extremely dated! There is a very fusty... More

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights The Avoncourt Hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, The beds were very comfortable, and the shower worked well, we had a room at the back of the hotel, and had a lovely view of the garden, it was also very quiet. Breakfast was delicious, more than enough to eat. A bit... More

On arriving, the first thing we noticed was the drive up to the hotel. That should have been a warning to us to turn around and leave but we continued until we reached the hotel. We were welcomed by two very friendly people but when we entered the reception room the smell of the room was very strong and all... More

This inn is simple, unfussy, and just the sort if place for the hiker who wants to walk all day and get a good night's sleep. The breakfast was great. Owner was super friendly and helpful. Great location for Coast Path hikers. Somewhat far from the harbor where the best restaurants are, but fine if you are a hiker and... More

Thank you Chris and John for another lovely stay at your hotel. I have been 5 times and love it there. You do need a car or be able to walk a bit. It's right out of the way so very quiet. 5 mins walk from either the high street or the sea front. Lots of lovely resturants and pubs... More

Okay so the room was ok! Beds are really comfy but well in need of a new shower! I felt like not having a shower because it is that bad you cannot get the right temperature and then it just comes out like a trickle the owners are pleasant and breakfast is fine... Apart from the fact you get waken... More
