We called in here as we usually do when on other business in that neck of the woods. My husband ordered a breakfast and I opted for the veggie version. It was a huge shame my plate was flooded with baked beans which took away the flavour of everything else, who wants mushrooms overwhelmed by baked bean sauce and soggy... More

The Fishermans Cot was not my first choice of hotel but thank goodness my first choice was booked up. We arrived to a lovely welcome and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice our family room was considering the reasonable rate. It had everything we would have found in a more expensive hotel, and was spotlessly clean. We ate in... More

My sister and I stayed here for a couple of days whilst visiting our great grandparents neck of the woods! The Fisherman's Cot was a wonderful place to stay, the service was superb, the rooms clean and quiet and the view was delightful. I am from the USA but if ever I am in this area again, I would definitely... More

Located about 2 miles from Tiverton on the banks of the River Exe this is a great Marsdons pub which chooses to source much of its food locally. We arrived Friday afternoon to a warm welcome, unlike the weather! The room in an annex about 30 m from the pub was warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean with access to a... More

I've stayed at the fishermans cot quite a few times now. No real complaints but I think it's looking a bit tired in places. Overall the food is pretty good although I had whitebait last time I stayed and it was poor. Avoid that! Rooms are generally clean and tidy although again, some things (bathroom for example) are a bit... More

This was our third visit in 18 months to this stunning location and we were not disappointed. Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts which were beautifully cooked and served on piping hot plates. This time we ate in the bar area for each of the three evenings of our... More

Arrived after a long 10 hour drive to be greeted by a very cheerful Juanita. She explained that there was a problem with our bedding and immediately offered a complimentary bottle of wine with our meal. After that we thought all the staff were very helpful, pleasant and efficient. Special mention to Annie and Michelle. We stayed for 4 nights... More
