“outstanding views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

stayed at the ria view salcombe overnight in the harbour view room. the room was of the highest standard bed extremely comfy with a view to die for. the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. the hosts were very nice and helpful . the house is really close to the town and harbour, it is in an elevated position, but not a problem if you are mobile. the breakfast room also has a stunning sea view. we ate at the ferry inn 2 steak meals for £15 on a thursday night, very good value for money. would come back again if ever down that way in the future.

Room Tip: ask for harbour view room you won't be disappointed, has a window seat perfect for sitting, watc...

What a fantastic view we had from our room. It was worth going just for the view but there are so many other things to recommend Ria View and Salcombe itself:
* Prime location in a lovely holiday spot
* Spacious room in top condition
* Pleasant, laid back, welcoming, helpful hosts
* Unbelievably quiet and relaxing at this time of year (April)
* Good gastro pubs a few minutes walk away (Fortescue was the best)
* Close to Totness which is well worth a visit for the bohemian atmosphere, Friday market and an excellent selection of alternative cafes, bars and restaurants
* Good value for money compared to other options in this area

We spent three nights there. We enjoyed the holiday enormously and will definitely aim to stay at Ria View again when we are next in the area.

Room Tip: It's pretty obvious but the sea view rooms are the ones to go for if you can get one. I assume t...

This is a friendly B&B which is only a short walk from the High street which is an advantage when Salcombe is so hilly. Room had a lovely view across the bay. Having stayed at a lot of B&B's whilst walking long distance paths, this is of about average standard. Nothing major to fault but nothing major to recommend it either.

I stayed with Bernice & Peter at Ria View and I have to say, I had a lovely stay with them. I spent three nights as I was attending a wedding.

I was made to feel very welcome and couldn't have asked for more. The high street is a short walk from the guest house and I had a wonderful view from my bedroom window.

My room was clean and tidy and was attended to each day.

Peter makes great scrambled egg and smoked salmon on toast, the other guests had a full cooked breakfast but I didn't get round to it as I loved mine too much!!

No need to hesitate if you are thinking of staying at Ria View, it's a lovely little place to go for a few days.

Room Tip: Get the double room overlooking the water.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We spent 3 nights here and very much enjoyed our stay, our room had an incredible view as I booked a sea view room with a fantastic window seat where I spent a lot of time enjoying the scenery. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and it was a pleasure to chat with other guests over breakfasts. Our hosts Peter and Bernice were very friendly and helpful. Only down side really was that although the room was immaculate it was very compact, the bathroom being smaller than the one we had just left in the caravan, there were a lot of steps to carry bags down and also the parking did not accommodate a large vehicle, however there was parking free of charge close by. We would certainly stay again if we were in the area as it was a good standard of accommodation with a great view.

Room Tip: I would recommend paying the little extra for the sea view room.

Who needs to see Florence when you can see the beautiful Salcome estuary and marina from two of Ria View's bedrooms and garden deck. We have enjoyed four stays there, and are planning another this year. Our friendly B&B hosts, Benice and Peter, offer a multi choice breakfast menu and the car parking arrangements are good. We would recommend the coastal walk from Salcome to South Sands with a stop at the South Sands Hotel beach balcony for a drink and crab sandwich and then maybe on to the NT Property Overbecks. There is also a ferry from South Sands back to Salcome. Can't wait to get back.

We chose the aptly named Ria View after looking at their excellent website and were very glad we did. The location gave superb views over the inlet.......we were lucky with our room. When it was sunny the garden terrace was a favourite area. Breakfasts were a delight with all the guests sitting round a large dining table. Parking was a bonus and walking into town easy....walking back a bit of a climb. Would definitely stay here again.
