“overnight stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Nice and friendly welcome,good clean and spacious rooms. Nothing more to add really as the other (good) reviews have just about got it covered. The short journey for the evening meal was no problem as we took advantage of their free taxi service.We stayed for one night while working in the area and found it ideal for our purpose.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Great little B&B, friendly owner and rooms are clean, well equipped and modern with free Wifi. En suite bathroom was great and very powerful shower. Breakfast is not memorable but sufficient and you are left to your own devices which is nice. Only thing I'm not used to as a city dweller were the farm animals and the cockerel which is the outdoor alarm clock. If I wanted to sleep in, I would have been more annoyed but fortunately needed to be up early anyway. Would definitely stay again.

This is a lovely place to stay, which is really different to just about anywhere else I've ever stayed. Well equipped room with a fridge. Help-yourself breakfast and snacks left in the dining room. Farm animals in the back garden. Only downside is you have to travel for an evening meal.
We received a very warm welcome after driving through this summer's torrential rain for the whole day.
Top it all off with good value rates.

My wife and I stayed here in May 2012 for 3 nights. What a pleasure, , On first appearence it seemed a bit different to hotels we were used to but the manageress a lovely lady made us welcome, The room was spacious and had all the amenities we would wish for. The shower was brilliant. We loved the way the breakfast was help yourself and very generous. It is in a great location , easy access to the motorway and a short drive into Exeter.

I stayed here in June 2012 on my own for two nights as I was filming web videos in the area. I found the location from the Bedandbreakfastsguide website.

Everything about this hotel suited me perfectly; easy to reach, quiet area, good home made food and real ale at the Five Bells pub nearby, and parking right at the door.

The rooms are bright, modern and clean and have a clever security / entry system- I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

my wife and I stayed there in July 2011. Our room was spotless with all the amenities as stated. The bathroom was also spotless, clean towels daily, no bath but one of the best showers in the world. In the room was a microwave, kettle tv. fridge. On the landing there was on offer a mini breakfast and hot drinks for those who could not make it to the breakfast room.
the breakfast you prepare yourself. A micro wave, toaster and instant hot water is there. You help yourself to a variety of cereals. fruit juices, breads, crumpets, cakes, fruit and in the fridge are a variety of yogurts, cheeses, jams, salamis, etc.Regretfully paper plates and cups.
We hope to use it again in the future, a good place to stay. the owner was welcoming and unobtrusive.
