A Guest House within a local pub. Durbeyfield, though being one of the cheaper places to stay in West Bay gave a warm welcome and friendly West Country staff. Rooms are clean and basic, but deliver what is needed in a B&B (Bed, Bath & Breakfast) Look carefully for the local notices pinned around the room ( Only tun this... More

Our experience nowhere near as bad as some of the reviews although I can see it could have been. On the positive side: Our bedroom was at top of building and was clean with equally clean shower and bath. Tea and coffee etc. Breakfast was great although you need to order the night before! On the negative front: really grubby... More

We had a stay at this B&B last week and we must say we were very disappointed . On arrival we walked into what we thought was somebodies front living room , It was very dark and very dated . We were taken up stairs to are room on the first floor . Again are first impression was how dated... More

We would like to thank this guest for taking time to submit this review but are very surprised with its content as this guest was given the opportunity to see and approve the room before proceeding with the booking. All of our superior rooms were booked and therefore the only room that was available was a budget room still to... More

I agree with previous reviews that this B&B needs a new cleaner and much T.L.C. The stairs going up to the rooms were really dirty as was the floor in the bedroom, I stood on something gunky in the carpet and had to wear shoes in the room after that. There were dirty handprints on the walls and cracks in... More

I was surprised to read recent reviews on this guesthouse. We stayed here for 2 nights having been booked in by Contours Walking Holidays. The room was clean although there was some mould in en-suite which given that it is a Georgian building was not too bad. The en-suite was tiny and we were offered the use of the bathroom... More

I agree with Ronnie453 this BnB is filthy both inside and out-and having to wear shoes in a bedroom because you dare not chance bare foot is disgraceful..Someone who knows the industry could knock this place into shape in no time at all and a housekeeper of any worth would be proud to put her name to the Durbeyfield.

This b&b was a throwback to the 1970s. A twin room at the top of two flights of stairs that haven't seen a Hoover in months & the room itself cannot have been thoroughly cleaned in much longer. The carpet was too dirty to walk on without shoes, thick dust on the furniture, wardrobe doors thick with greasy hand prints... More

We have stayed in Durbeyfield twice but it's basic cleanliness lets itself down and they don't seem to care! On a positive note the food here is good, reasonably priced, nice fresh fish specials every day and Durbeyfield has a great location in West Bay The negatives - difficult to park as car park full of locals visiting the bar...

The website does not truly reflect this guesthouse. If you want cheap and cheerful and are not bothered by cleanliness then this place will suit you. We found this to be unacceptable to the point of wearing shoes in our room all the time. The food is lovely as are the staff but we wouldn't return due to the lack... More

A party of 9 of us enjoyed a Sunday lunch - my roast pork was lovely and came with crunchy crackling and good roasties, my husabnd's cod was beautifully cooked. Others had the belly pork - and said it was excellent. Much later on in the day, we were looking for some supper but the kitchen had closed some 20... More
