“If there's a better B&B in the South of England.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

then we want to know where it is!
We've just got back from our second stay at this little gem of a place. Ann and Andy have made some improvements to the Ajax Room by creating an ensuite bathroom out of nowhere - fabulous. This year we travelled with my brother-in-law and his wife and they were really impressed too. All the things we liked last year are still there - great breakfast, beautiful linen and towels, home made cookies, tea and (real) coffee making facilities and a small fridge with water, milk and soft drinks in the room. When you add the fact that Ann and Andy are just the perfect hosts who basically want to share their lovely home with their guests (and returning ones, like us, are greeted like friends), we really cannot think of anything that we would want to change. We'll be back!!!!

Room Tip: All three rooms are fabulous but only Phoebe has a sea view.

Dear Dave it was lovely to welcome you and Deb back for another stay. Thank you so much for your kind words. It was great that Michael enjoyed the biscuits so much. I hope they have made some from my recipe. I look forward to seeing you all again in January.

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Ann and Andy who go out of their way to ensure guests have all they need; breakfasts were delicious and plentiful - with choice from locally sourced produce. A much needed complimentary welcome cream tea was provided on arrival and in the evening a cold meats and cheese platter can be ordered at extra charge but what a treat that was! Parma/Serrano hams, salami, roast ham, local cheeses and home made bread and chutney..... And the most comfortable bed ever! A treat to stay!

Stayed here for 3 nights . Ideal location between Teignmouth and Dawlish with very easy access to both. Hosts are most welcoming and attentive and lay on a superb breakfast choice for a small B&B.
We paid a bit extra and stayed in the room Phoebe which is a good size with nice views and a seating area plus tea/coffee/ fridge .
Nice places to eat in the area but if you want The Crab Shack which is the top rated fish restuarant make sure you book before you arrive or you will be dissapointed ,there was a 10 person waiting list when we tried

I spent two nights in June at Minadabs while visiting an old school friend and her family. We had the two rooms upstairs, one for my mother and the other for my 17 year old daughter and myself. We all loved our stay in the very clean and comfortable "Thatched cottage". The beds were very comfortable and the food excellant!
I got the recipe from Anne for the delicious scones she served when we arrive, and the breakfast on both mornings was excellant.
I drove past the Minadab last year while staying in Dawlish, saying "that's where I'm staying next year" I'm so glad I did!
Anne and Andy run a wonderful B&B with very special service to everyone who stays with them,
when I booked the rooms I called Anne ( I live in California, US) to have a chat as I had some questions for her,
I hope to stay with them again on my next visit to Devon.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Anne and Andy truly enjoy opening their home to guests, and by the time that we left, it felt that we had made new friends. On arrival, we were greeted with a cream tea and shown to our room. The attention to detail is apparent from the outset and we cannot think of anything that would have made our stay better. The room and bathroom were tasteful and comfortable, the food which is cooked to order is excellent and the friendliness is exceptional. We loved the beautiful garden too. Thank you for a superb stay. On the way home, we stayed overnight with friends who wanted to have your details and so now have carefully stashed away one of your cards.

Room Tip: There are only three letting rooms. We had the ground floor one which was excellent. I do not know...

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel exceptionally welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed at many hotels over the years this is probably the first time we could not fault anything even the weather was good! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Minadab and will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: The room at the front and on the first floor has a wonderful sea view we stayed in the ground floor...
