Double Room was OK for 2-night stay but it faces onto blank wall opposite and was not tidied in any way during our stay. The wet room is badly designed and lighting for mirror quirky/useless. And DIY breakfast was non-existent at 8am - no milk for cereals, no bread for toast, except one mouldy white crust! No one around to... More

Well Thanks for your review Jon b, But not sure what planet you are on! The main window looks across the lane and the sea can be seen left and right. The window you are referring to is just for additional light. I you look down the toilet pan, you can't quite see the sea either. The wet rooms are... More

Myself and a friend stayed at Baggys lodge on the recommendation of another friend who had recently visited and loved it. It certainly didn't disappoint! We stayed in one of the bunk rooms which for the price was a very high standard with ample space, comfy beds and a lovely bathroom. The location itself was perfect for exploring the local... More

I stayed in one of the hostel rooms over the first May bank holiday, and it was exactly what I'd hoped. The room was clean, the bed comfy and I was very impressed with the bathroom, you don't normally get such high standards for a hostel room. The staff were all very friendly and made me feel welcome. I hired... More

It's the best. Perfect location outside Croyde, hot showers and the best surf school on site (Lyndon Wake/Surfing Croyde Bay). Cannot recommend it more. For the price you will not find anything that comes close. Even the cat is class.. I kind of didn't want to write this because it's nice it's so non commercial, but then saw some reviews... More

Only stopped for a breakfast so will only score based on what i paid for. Obviously spent some money on interior & outside space, which has some great views over the bay. Service friendly Cooked breakfast was priced at a reasonable £5.95 - good sausage & bacon although toast would be a welcome addition. Coffee was nice enough but the... More

Thanks for your review ItchyFeetiow, We do offer toast, but it is extra - we have found over the years that this is the most popular way. You are not the first person to mention the cost of our coffee. I drink coffee in London a lot and in my experience we are in the right ball park. Few places... More

Rooms – we stayed at one of the doorm rooms that was not bigger than my wardrobe. I am not even sure if it’s legal to rent that size of a space for 3 people. The image impression from the website did not give away the room size. We struggled to get dressed or get changed being at the same... More

Thanks for your review Irena, However, I don't really think you get what we are about and have taken things far too seriously. Yes the bunk rooms are small - they are for sleeping in, not for preparing for the Ball. This is Devon, you really do not need to lock your doors, apart from stopping passing public from using...

Really enjoyed 3 nights at Baggy's staying in the Teahupoo 6 bed dorm. Impressively sand free room on arrival, great shower and general facilities. The lodge has stunning views across the beach and is less than 5 minutes walk away (ideal when carrying surfboards down). Another thing to note is I would recommend hiring a board from Baggy's for good... More

We stayed in the Oyster room which was fabulous, huge bed and lovely bathroom but we had to ask for towels, no bathmat or bin. That was ok but as it was £110 per night, service could have been better & breakfast should have been included for that price. I know we had a " help yourself in the shared... More

We had 2 nights at Baggys and were given a very warm welcome despite our late arrival. I was amazed at how clean, tidy and tastefully decorated the lodge was. Everything you need for a surfing weekend. Warm showers, surf hire, cafe, knowledgeable and helpful staff all within easy walking distance of Croyde beach. A good view of the surf... More
