Downton Lodge has to be the best guest house I've stayed in. It's set in a beautiful location with lovely panoramic views across South Devon countryside. The house is full of character and the hosts Andrew & Martin have thought of everything. From the warm welcome to an elegant communal sitting room complete with coffee and soft drinks and homemade...

Four friends and I decided to have a long weekend in Devon. We arrived at Downton Lodge on the Friday afternoon after a five hour car journey to what can only be classed as five star luxury accommodation. The thing that puts Downton Lodge in a class of its own is the attention to detail; all the small things that... More

The lodge is absolutely stunning, whether your looking out the front or the back the views surrounding you are beautiful. The owners are extremely welcoming, friendly and observant to each of your needs. The double room was very spacious with everything you would need including a balcony. Tea and coffee is available all day on a lovely open landing with... More

The shower with spring water was a pleasant surprise and the afternoon cake was a treat after a long day of site seeing. Breakfast was... More

Great place for a calm and relaxing stay. Ian and Karen were wonderful hosts and catered for our problematic diets (veggie and a wheat allergy) without any fuss at all. Guest room was comfortable, clean and had lovely views. Breakfast was fab and afternoon cake was a bonus! Location is great, quiet with good access into Dittisham and Dartmouth. Would... More

Funnily enough we used Tripadvisor to find a place to stay whilst on holiday on the Scilly Isles to break up the return journey to London, as we've been wanting to visit Mitch Tonks' fish and chip shop 'Rockfish' in Dartmouth for ages. Downton Lodge seemed to come very highly recommended so we went with that. So glad we did... More

Perfect place and just as described on the website. Great room which was spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed with lovely bedlinen and fluffy white towels in the bathroom. Delicious breakfast every morning and Karen and Ian went out of their way to make sure I had plenty of yummy gluten free food for breakfast. The cakes (gluten free... More

What a beautifully peaceful, exquisitely decorated and spotlessly clean place to stay when on holiday in Devon, with Dartmouth and all its charm just a stones throw away.There were sea views on one side and beautiful views of Dartmoor on the other and a lovely garden to look out onto. Our hosts attended to our every need and were especially... More
