We stayed here just one night but it was very clean & friendly. We had a very large room with a four poster bed overlooking the sea. It was very comfortable & well equipped apart from the shower that didn't really work properly. Delicious breakfast. A good stop.

We stayed here on a recommendation from family members who had stayed previously, as other family live in Dawlish that we were visiting. The location is incredibly convenient as it's only a 5 minute walk uphill from the train station. We received a text while we were on the train to confirm our arrival time, so that when we arrived...

We stayed for 4 nights. The first positive thing is the welcome you get when you arrive, Nikki & Ian treated us like long lost relatives. The room we had was perfect for our needs, huge comfortable bed with sea views. After a long day walking we spent most evenings in the bar with Ian and Nikki and others guest... More

Good location - happy to help - room was spotless, we had a four poster bed over looking the sea - excellant place to stay. Tastey breakfast with lots of choice, nice to have the options of some different things on your cooked breakfast as well - top notch and safe off road parking made it a 10/10

We do apologise for not being very customer-friendly at 2AM in the morning. We do not usually get bookings or enquiries at that time. Being a Guest House as opposed to an hotel there are no staff on duty during the night. We do answer the phone at all hours in case it relates to an emergency. However, we cannot... More

We stayed for one night before moving up the coast for a longer stay at the Warren, but the hospitality we received in that time was fantastic! Nikki is a brilliant hostess, very friendly and very funny - we were made to feel very welcome. The room (Room 11), had everything we needed, and the breakfast was fab. Absolutely no... More

Yes Nikki does enjoy meeting her customers - we are so glad that you enjoyed your short stay with us. Nikki is also especially proud of her Fresh Fruit Salad and makes it every day first thing. The fruits vary a little according to availability but usually include Honeydew Melon, Pineapple, Strawberries and Red Seedless Grapes. It included gooseberries today!... More
