My husband booked for us to spend the bank holiday here for our wedding anniversary after enjoying his stay there last year. Sadly, there was a mix up where the new owners were not informed of our booking, but they did everything they could to accommodate us. They were also so flexible around the check in times and could not... More

I read all the reviews of this hotel, and decided it would be a good place for myself and 9 y-o son to stay, but I wish I had not. We booked and received a confirmation email, but when we arrived at 6pm there was no one there! We waited for half an hour in what was a freezing and... More

Ernie T, Owner at Duchy House Guest House, responded to this review

We really are very sorry that this guest feels so strongly to write such derogatory comments about a place he hasn't even stayed in. He has also put forward a very one sided statement and has failed to state any of the follow up conversations. The truth about this reservation, done through booking.com, was that we had been called away... More

I stayed in the single room for one night. I had a very warm welcome, a very nice breakfast and a very very cosy bed. The room and bathroom were spotless,and although the bathroom was shared, it was fine and didn't really matter. Lovely b&b in a very nice part of Dartmoor, the view from the room was good too!

What a treat to come to a guest house like this with such friendly hosts. Ernie and Hilary could not have been more helpful. The rooms where large and spotlessly clean, great shower to help me unwind after some sooty work earlier in the day. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to stay in the area. Hope to... More

After arriving very late in the evening after a six hour drive we had a lovely and welcoming stay. The b&b is excellent value for money and location was ideal and very easy to get to. The hosts were very friendly and gave good local knowledge and helped in getting our taxi sorted. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order... More

Hilary and Ernie keep a very nice place. The room was of a very good size along with the en-suite. Clean, tidy, warm and the breakfast was... More

What a wonderful B&B, right in the heart of Dartmoor National Park. Great central location for visiting local attractions and walking on the Moor. Hosts Ernie and Hilary could not be more welcoming. They make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing, cooked to order and... More

Our most recent stay at this Princetown B&B was last weekend. We were in the en-suite double which is a very large comfortable room with good size bathroom including a very large walk-in shower with loads of piping hot water. Ideal to wash off all the dirt and sweat after a long day walking across Dartmoor. Location wise it is... More
