My sister and I stayed at Dessy's for a short weekend. Gina and Des are friendly, warm and welcoming hosts and the rooms cosy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with good quality sausages and bacon. Overall Dessy's has a relaxed home from home feel and is good value for money.

A friend and I stayed to visit a hen party staying elsewhere in Croyde. The location was great and the room clean and tidy. It suited us down to the ground for a short visit. Breakfast was great and the hosts very welcoming with good knowledge of the area and recommendations. I'd definitely stop again.

We stayed for a short break on a tight budget to Croyde. We were amazed at the cleanliness of the rooms and the beds were very comfy. Breakfast was great and served swiftly and enabled us to get on the water early. The owner had an in depth knowledge of the surf and local area. All in all great value... More

We stayed there for one night in a double room without ensuite bathroom, although told on the homepage. The host tried to be friendly, but seemed to us as if he was only interested in the money he got for the stay. We had no key for our room, the breakfast was served 45 minutes after the forcasted time. The... More

Just come back from a week in Dessy and Gini's self catering apartment. It is such a lovely place, light airy and very clean. It has one large double bedroom with plenty of storage, and a very comfy bed. With a crook of the head you also have a sea view! The kids were in the small room with large... More

Lounge clean, tidy no issues, Can help yourself to tea & coffee in the lounge and watch tele. From previous reveiews I'd say the lounge being in a state was due to some unruly guests staying there!

I often visit Croyde with my friends to surf and always stay with Dessy at Sandy Hollow when down for a weekend or when too tired to drive back that evening. He is very accommodating and can always fit me in no matter how late i book! His laid back approach, flexibility and invaluable surfing and local knowledge make it... More

We've been going to Croyde Bay for years and have never had a bad experience at a B&B...until now! The 'communal lounge' was being used as a laundry room when we arrived with clothes everywhere! After checking in we had to ask for somewhere to park our car as the owner had parked their car smack bang in the centre... More
