Suited our requirements perfectly as we only wanted to stay overnight, somewhere nice and close to the sea. Great location. Bedroom we stayed in clean and cosy. Best bit was the breakfast which was brilliant. Best reason to stay here! Our hosts were very nice and accommodating. There is parking round the back, which is useful but be warned it... More

We have just returned from a short break at The Swallows in Exmouth. It was a lovely place with a very welcoming feel given by David and Rachel the landlords. The B&B is comfortable and spotlessly clean with a very nice breakfast. The location is excellent and its only a few minutes walk from the seafront or the town centre... More

A very nice location just off the beachside and wonderful to see the part of the world. The owners were a perfect representation of how a b&b should be run. It was highly professional at all times and an ideal retreat for my wife and I from the London lifestyle that we have to lead. With great transport links around... More

Many thanks for the review and the kind words about the quality of our customer service - it's always nice to know we've left a good impression! We understand your feelings regarding price, however August is peak season and most accommodation providers won't take a single night booking. We do however, but it does incur a small premium for our... More

David and Rachel are the perfect hosts. They have a lovely B&B in a perfect position to explore Exmouth and the surrounding area. I had a super nights sleep. The bed was so comfortable and the room spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast too.

We stayed at The Swallows in Exmouth early Summer this year. This was one of the best bed and breakfast establishments we have stayed in without a doubt. David and Rachel are perfect hosts and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. We have stayed in two different rooms and both have all you would need, the larger front room... More
