Booked last minute as most places were full. Was a bit worried but thought hey it's only a place to get ones head down. Did not know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised and pleased in equal measure. The hotel was clean warm and centrally located. The owner was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room...

Wonderful location, friendly staff, Excellent breakfast, Still in the process of decorating but doing it well and in a non intrusive manner. Three months in and so much better than the previous management. Faultless stay. the new management have turned the place around and it's going to be one of my regular haunts. Thank you.

The room was fine ..basic but clean and presentable.. small things, like fridge with complimentary wine and nibbles were a nice touch . Breakfast was very good ..great coffee....

Hotel is being refurbished but friendly host and excellent value. Great full English breakfast. Bedrooms need to be improved . Should be great next year. Strange internal layout due to the age of the building.

Stayed here for a night on a trip to Brixham. The hotel is being renovated as was recently purchased by new owners. The room was good and no ghost. Breakfast was very nice too. Would stay there again.

This place is very much a work in progress. The new owners had only been there for a week and are in the process of refurbishing - no bar or restaurant when we stayed, but great breakfast. Parking is not the best but if a b&b is defined by the welcome and friendly attitude of the owners then this place...

Management response:

We took over the operation of the hotel on the 2nd of September and feel that we have completed a lot of work in the short time we have been in residence. We will continue with the refurbishment as quickly as we can but do need to bear in mind the potentilal disturbance to our guests. We serve breakfast everyday...
