I spent 4 nights here and could easily have spent longer. The hotel is located at the end of a private road and sits on the coastal pathway that runs along the River Torridge. I stayed in The Lady Dawe room complete with 4 poster bed and great views of the hotel gardens and surrounding countryside. The owners and staff... More

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with the best welcome, from the lovely owners. The garden is stunning and the hotel offers lovely views over the estuary, even better when we reached our room to find out it had that same view. The room and, indeed, the whole hotel has great character, is spotlessly clean and there is... More

You go down a lovely long drive and pull up in from of the house where you have beautiful views of the river. The owners were very attentive with a welcome cup of tea on offer when you arrive. Room was lovely and old with lots of character and balcony on the roof to our room was just a great... More

Five months ago, when making the booking, no mention was made that there would be a £10.-/night surcharge for the dog. The hotel is not exactly pet-friendly as there was no Welcome Pack for the dog. Furthermore, we were asked to place our dog in the car whilst we breakfasted. We were also instructed not allow to the dog to... More

YHH has great river views, there's a warm welcome, the room was very comfortable, the location is peaceful and quiet, there is a lovely garden and the breakfast was excellent. But YHH does not offer dinner (we knew that when we booked).

Bizzare experience on arrival, not out of place in the sit com. We knew we were 30 mins early but this is not normally much of a problem. However, we were repeatedly told we hadn't booked an early checkin, and were instructed to sit and wait, along with another couple .... felt a bit like naughty school children! Room small... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Lovely hotel, beautiful gardens, great attention to detail. Rooms tastefully decorated and clean. The Hosts, John and Ilona Mineikis, couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We were in Devon to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary and were pleasantly surprised to have champagne and strawberries delivered to our room compliments of the hotel. Such a... More

This hotel is a little gem - very lovely owners who take time to find out what you are looking for and advise on local restaurants etc. Beautiful gardens for relaxing and having a drink or two. Breakfasts were as good as it gets. Can not recommend this hotel highly enough.

Stayed for a couple of nights in this secluded, quiet and immaculately kept B&B, John and Ilona made us feel so very welcome. The gardens are a delight, and breakfast was faultless. Comfortable spacious rooms, complete with fluffy pillows and duvet - what more could anyone want!
