Above the Bay at Thornton Adams far exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for accommodation within 100 miles of Plymouth this is the place to stay. We've just come back from a fantastic 3 night stay. Christine's knowledge of the area and places to eat or visit is exceptional, the rooms were immaculate and the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Breakfasts were alternating from cooked breakfast one morning to buffet breakfast the following morning. The cooked breakfasts were fantastic and the buffet breakfasts did not disappoint. (home cooked muffins, walnut banana bread, bagels, cheese, jam, yogurts, eggs, melon, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, juice and I've probably missed several other items) We will definitely be back. Hope to visit again soon Gary & Diane Welsby

Poor experience. Noisy building from numerous sources (top floor, Jacuzzi pumps, hot water pipes and slamming of ill-fitting doors). No curtains in bedroom so awoken at sun-up. No front desk. No consierge. Host rarely there and unprepared to acknowledge issues. Building also appeared to be occupied by others as more than 3 rooms. Room not cleaned (when mention to host she just pointed out that this service was 'on request', however nothing ever explained/discussed by host. Avoid this place as there's much better places closer to Plymouth. We know as we just checked out and found better really easily.

We stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon. It was delightful - cozy, quiet and relaxing. Our hostess was very gracious and helpful with suggestions about restaurants and area attractions. Excellent breakfast.

We stayed during a week day so there wasn't many travelers here this night but we had everything we could ask for it was clean and well maintained. The breakfast has just a serve yourself this day but it was very good. Nice view of the bay.

I had booked the room as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. I had communicated with Christine prior to arrival for suggested restaurants. All was well until the winter storm hit. My flight got cancelled. I gave Christine as much notice as I could. I emailed separately to my cancellation notice. No response. I emailed again. No response. Charged the full amount of my booking. Wouldn’t recommend.
