“Fabulous B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Our stay at the Rockmount was lovely. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Tony, the owner, who was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was immaculate and spotless, and was cleaned every day of our 3 night stay. There was a good selection for breakfast, and the cooked breakfast was lovely. It is in a good location, being only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Tavistock. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Rockmount to anyone and would definitely stay there again. I would also recommend Taylors Restaurant, where we had a lovely meal, and the Cornish Arms Pub. To sum up the Rockmount is a fabulous B&B, and a big thank you to Tony and his staff, who made us feel very welcome during our stay there.

We found the B&B via the internet, which looked good. When we got there it surpassed our expectations. Immaculately clean, various luxury items, such as the heated bathroom mirror, coffee maker, ipod station and remote lighting. It was perfect balance of friendliness and privacy. Breakfast was superb and lovely to have in your room overlooking the garden with the sun shining.

We would recommend anyone to stay there.

A warm welcome from the owner was only the beginning of a great stay. Top quality fittings, fluffy towels and top quality bedding. Spotless bathroom with good toiletries.The attention to detail is what makes it stand out from the crowd! A quality coffee machine, electric lighting controls, Ipod dock. Access to quiet graden too- a bonus.
Great breakfast served in the room. Again good quality, hot food - no plastic sausages or rubber toast! Quality linen and tableware too.
Large parking area and 5 mins walk to centre of Tavistock.
Beats many so called 5 star hotels! Highly recommend it and will return.

Room Tip: All rooms I saw were light and airy. Stayed in the corner room which had view of garden.

Booked this B&B after reading the excellent reviews on here, and was not disappointed!
We stayed in room 1 for two nights over the early May bank holiday.
Wonderful decor, amazing en-suite, spotlessly clean. Lots of little extras that make it so very special including a Tassimo coffee machine, remote control for the lights, toiletries in the en-suite, and even slippers!
Breakfast served in the room at a pre-arranged time - well cooked quality food, nice and hot and precisely on time!
Situated very close to the centre of lovely Tavistock.
Would recommend staying here 100% , cannot praise it highly enough - we will definitely be going back!!

Arrived in Tavistock and got a phone call. The owner had been called away and his lady"who does" was not available since she had to deal with a personal emergency. Our hearts sand. However the owner said here is the code to the front door. You have the following rooms let yourself in and make yourself comfortable which we did. Clearly the owner has invested a lot of money in the business and it shows. There was a first for me a remote control to turn on and off the bedrooms lights. Good beverage making facilities and a small but well appointed WC and shower. Would strongly recommend.

I was thinking about why Rockmount is so good. The answer I came up with is that this is how B&Bs should be run. It seems that have because resigned to average quality accommodation and service that it has become the norm. When we come across a business that does it well, it stands out.

However, this is not to detract from Rockmount. This is a top-quality establishment. The décor and furnishings are superb, the equipment is superb and it looks refined.

The room service breakfast is a tray of perfection: convenient for guests and, I imagine, proprietor alike. As vegetarians we were more than impressed to find different veggie sausages on each on our two mornings.

If I have one quibble, it’s that the sliding door to the bathroom was glass (albeit frosted) and did not fully close (due to its slidey nature). The former means that, however quiet one is at night, the bathroom light is likely to wake the other person. The latter: well, it’s just a bit odd.

But, really, this is not that big a deal. The room was excellent and I could not recommend Rockmount enough. We had an excellent couple of nights.

Tony: you have a gem on your hands.

Just back from 3 nights in this lovely peaceful B&B. All modern inside, please look at the photos. Tony the owner cannot do enough for you. The meet and greet is first class. Anything not available he will try and provide for you (but I must say there was nothing we needed to ask for it was all there) We think he has found the perfect combination for the rooms with all the extra little touches that you would not expect to find in a B&B. We did a tour of all the rooms before other guests arrived and they were all of the same high standard. The bed was sooooo comfortable and I cannot express how quiet the house is even when all the rooms were full. Breakfast is served in the room at the exact time you request, perfect. Table and chairs in the room so no balancing a tray on your lap. All in all the perfect stay. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in this area. We would stay here again without any hesitation. Just give Tony a call.
