My husband and I stayed at Sampford House over the Bank Holiday weekend. Our reasons for choosing to stay here were the constantly good reviews on Trip Advisor, the location in relation to the harbour and the fact they had a room with a super king bed and we are so glad we did. Matthew and Rosie are warm and... More

Sampford House has a fantastic location overlooking Brixham Harbour within easy walking distance of many great places to eat. Rosie and Matthew made us very welcome and were superb hosts! The free parking was a bonus, and good public transport links meant that we didn't use the car at all during our stay. Matthew's travel tips over breakfast were extremely... More

Another visit to Brixham and another stay at the best guest house. Matthew & Rosie continue to be the consummate professionals delivering fantastic breakfasts, clean rooms and super service above and beyond your expectations. As always, fully recommended.

Just returned from a short break in Brixham. This was our third stay but first review!! We had a lovely time as always, Rosie and Matthew are such warm, welcoming hosts. Matthew has always got a good story to tell at breakfast which Rosie cooks to perfection. Both have great knowledge of the area and can be relied on to... More

We stayed here with friends recently for two nights and the proprietors Rosie and Matthew were exceptionally friendly and very helpful throughout our stay. The Guest House is well situated just above the harbour and free parking is close by. The breakfasts were superb and several home made marmalades were also available. All in all a very clean and comfortable... More

A friendly, courteous and helpful landlord. Super harbour view from your bedroom. The bedrooms are very small, the en-suite is an even tighter squeeze. For the location it is reasonably priced. The noisy night time revellers is obviously beyond the control of the landlord and to be fair it didn't last long. We slept well.

Here for a long weekend and from the welcome on it has been a delight. Hosts Matthew and Rosie are genial, helpful and full of enthusiasm for your stay, the breakfasts are wonderful and the rooms, although small, are filled with everything you need for a relaxing time. Well worth the internet search.

Just returned from our 4th stay at Sampford House and can't speak more highly of this B&B. We've stayed in nearly all the rooms now but on this visit we stayed in room 1 while our cousins stayed in the Fisherman's Cottage adjoining. This was a great combination of rooms as we could meet up and spend time together in... More
