The Beaches Guest House is situated in a quiet residential road about a mile or so from Dawlish town. The house is just off the main road and within walking distance of the Smugglers pub and restaurant, which can be recommended for meals etc. The Guest House accommodation is all part of the same large modern house where the proprietors (Christine and Ian) actually live. It is somewhat like going to stay over a friend’s house but not having access to their private rooms.
It is very obvious that Christine and Ian take great pride in their business and we would find it very hard (if not impossible) to pass any criticisms. Our deluxe room was one of three bedrooms all found at the top of the house and was exceptionally large, spacious and had the most wonderful sea view. Our room, like the rest of the house was immaculate, pleasantly furnished and spotlessly clean. Even though we stayed in May it was quite chilly in the evenings and thankfully the heat was turned on which was a great comfort. I have to say that this has to be one of the quietest places we have ever had the pleasure to stay in, even the other guests seemed to respect this. There was even a note stuck on the remote control for the TV requesting that guests to keep the volume below a certain prescribed level – great!
Breakfast was excellent and it appeared that the majority of ingredients were either sourced locally or home made. Christine and Ian were friendly and welcoming but did not overdo the small talk and platitudes, which made us, feel comfortable and relaxed. Well done to the Beeches, we would defiantly stay again.
Pay the extra and stay in the Delux room you wont regret it!
