“A lovely find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Stayed at Dunluce House for two nights on the strength of positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Very pleased that this quality bed and breakfast more than lived up to expectations. A lovely Georgian property - we stayed in the top seaside themed bedroom which was large and comfortable. Breakfasts in the lovely ground floor dining room were excellent and we felt personally catered for and enjoyed our chats with the very gracious hosts.

If ever in Dawlish, suggest this is the best place to stay.

Room Tip: Top floor room necessitates a climb, but good views over Dawlish as a result!

Bob and Josie are the perfect hosts, the breakfasts superb , the accommodation spotless and homely . Dunluce House is conveniently situated just a few hundred yards from the heart of Dawiish with wonderful sea views. If ever we're in the area again Dunluce House will be our first choice.

Wow! That sums up our stay with Bob & Josie in one word. They are the most welcoming hosts we have ever come across. We came to Dawlish for the Air Show, and stayed in the room with the view of the back garden. The room is spotlessly clean, and the most comfortable bed, we didn't want to get out of. On suite bathroom, again we could not fault it. It's beautifully decorated throughout. The rest of the house is absolutely gorgeous. Bob asked us on our arrival what time we wanted breakfast, and we didn't have to be set by times. Josie cooked up the most delicious full breakfast, with cereals and juices. Nothing is too much trouble for Bob & Josie, they even let us have our breakfast in their gorgeous garden on our second morning. Dunluce house is located in the centre of Dawlish, with stunning views of the sea. We have already put our names down for next year! We would definitely recommend staying here- you won't find anything nicer! Thank you Bob & Josie for a lovely stay- see you next year. .

Room Tip: The top room has stunning sea views

Had a great stay in the twin rom at the top of the house. The room is huge, with beautiful views, very comfy beds and a sofa perfect for flopping onto at the end of a long day. There's a TV, well stocked biscuit tin and great toiletries, and the house is just a couple of minutes walk from the middle of Dawlish. There was a fair on while we were there, but the noise didn't make it through the windows and we slept brilliantly on both nights. Bob and Josie were so kind, they were always interested in our plans and took great care of my 2 year old little girl, providing milk for her bottle and making her breakfast just as she likes it. Josie's poached eggs were amazing, and there was plenty of good fresh coffee. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat, lovely house and great hosts in a spot on location.

I have just spent 1 week in the self catering quarters in this delightful Devonshire Bed and Breakfast owned by the lovely Bob and Josie Dyer who were a pleasure to know and to talk to all during this past week and never hesitated to help me in whatever queries or problems I had as they did their ultimate best to be of whatever assistance they could.
The apartment was a joy to be in as you're pretty much on your own and that you can maintain your independence as much as you like in terms of cooking for yourself etc, comfy bed and sofa and tv all come with this fabulous apartment. It's worth checking it over when you're in Dawlish as the town isn't a million miles away from town on foot with a pub and chippy near by for those with a hunger for fish and a thirst for the local beverage weaker and stronger if you get my drift.
My sincere thanks to Bob and Josie for having me in their fabulous accommodation and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future at some point. Keep up the good work guys.

Room Tip: For those with a hankering for your independence opt for the apartment

If visiting Dawlish, this HAS to be your first choice - it can't be faulted in terms of hospitality, breakfast, rooms/facilities, etc. Bob and Josie will make sure you have a memorable stay. When everything's so good, it's hard to fill 200 characters without sounding 'over the top'. We have nothing bad to say!
