We stayed here for one night on the way down from Yorkshire to the South West. The inn is very comfortable with good food and clean rooms. Breakfast was very good indeed. We stayed in Kingfisher and the only complaint would be the lack of headboard! Otherwise the room was clean, comfortable - just what was needed for an overnight... More

Stayed overnight to be near Dartmouth. What a great location.. Well serviced room,plenty of toiletries and refreshments. Food in bar was great and breakfast was exceptional considering what we paid- great value for money. I left a dress behind which they have kindly sent onto me

Tables outside but due to weather we were not able to use them.did see a Kingfisher flash past but even he was trying to avoid the rain. The room is comfortable with TV and... More

Stayed in this old mill house which is right on the banks of the river dart and had a great room with a four poster overlooking the river from the first floor. Friendly welcome and room was a little dated and in need of decoration but this did not upset our stay in the slightest. Ate in the restaurant and... More

So we arrived here for a family birthday meal. Lovely location and what you'd expect for an old inn. After getting drinks when we arrived, we made our way to our table. After being sat for 15/20 minutes we were asked for our orders. Only three had starters. We then waited approx 35 mins for our starters. After complaining about... More

On arrival at the inn, we thought it was a lovely setting and staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was bright, basic but clean. Breakfast was the normal fare, nothing to get excited about but adequate. However the bed for us personally was excruciating, there was a large gap between the mattress and the wall and with no headboard... More

The Abbey Inn has to be one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Beautifully located on the River Dart, the outside terrace is a superb location for drinks and relaxation. Jake and Cecilia couln't have been nicer - so friendly and welcoming - and they do all the cooking themselves as well as running the fab pub and... More
