We stayed for two nights but would of liked to stay for more. The views from the outside seating area is amazing. This includes friendly ducks that wander about and if you get up early enough you just might be lucky enough to see the otters. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was incredible. More than enough to... More

Absolutely has to be the best place to stay in Devon. The pub is the most picturesque i have ever visited. The staff are friendly and helpful beyond belief. The food is of the highest quality and definitely great value. The rooms are spacious and well kept. It was without doubt the most pleasant couple of days i have ever... More

We stayed 2 nights as were there for a wedding in Tiverton. Had dinner at the Fisherman's Cot the first night which was very good - reasonably priced and atmospheric. The Manager was warm and hospitable, the service and running of the place faultless. We were very impressed and sorry to leave. Would recommend to anyone. Lovely breakfasts too! Thanks... More

It looks like the whole place has been totally refurbished. We had a super room (number 8). Modern, clean and very comfortable, except for my usual gripe: the pillows. I DO NOT like synthetic pillows. I like the good old fashioned feather ones but I suppose that with so many people having allergic problems with these that hotels have to... More

Well it was a different experience some of the staff were lovely some were really unfriendly, The whole place needs a lot of money spent on it to bring it up to todays standards. Rooms were ok lots of noise from upstairs rooms.Breakfast was nice and had a large family meal on the sunday it was nice.The setting is wonderful.

From the south, your first image of the Fishermans Cot is stunning. The beautiful thatched roof building spreads out into a large car park alongside the river.. First, negotiate the narrow five arched bridge and drive in. You are immediately surrounded by huge hanging baskets of purple,mauve and pink petunias and a warm welcome from Juanita, formerly from NZ. Because... More
