After a very tiring trip through M4 and M5 and a spooky night-time drive up the moorland, my wife and I were warmly welcomed at Duchy House. The Guest House offers clean and comfortable rooms with all the necessary amenities one would need when staying over at such a place. The bathrooms are en-suite, new and clean and the location...

I recently enjoyed a fantastic 2 night stay at Duchy House Guest House which my boyfriend and I used as a base for hiking on Dartmoor. It has been recently refurbished so everything is new, clean and works well. The bed was super comfy and the shower was strong and hot, both of which were definitely appreciated after miles of...

After hearing that Duchy House has been refurbished, we returned and stayed there for a couple of days. It has improved so much since our last stay, which for us, was made rated highly because of the genuineness and helpfulness of the couple who recently took over it (Alan and Sally). The rooms and hallway are lighter and better lit... More

Was invited to stay for a preview weekend and I was very impressed. Stayed in the newly refurbished Duchy, what a great place, all rooms en-suite with a high standard of cleanliness and decor. We didn't have to worry about our muddy trekking boots as there is a handy boot rack inside the front door. The rooms were really warm,... More

My husband booked for us to spend the bank holiday here for our wedding anniversary after enjoying his stay there last year. Sadly, there was a mix up where the new owners were not informed of our booking, but they did everything they could to accommodate us. They were also so flexible around the check in times and could not... More

I read all the reviews of this hotel, and decided it would be a good place for myself and 9 y-o son to stay, but I wish I had not. We booked and received a confirmation email, but when we arrived at 6pm there was no one there! We waited for half an hour in what was a freezing and... More

Ernie T, Owner at Duchy House Guest House, responded to this review

We really are very sorry that this guest feels so strongly to write such derogatory comments about a place he hasn't even stayed in. He has also put forward a very one sided statement and has failed to state any of the follow up conversations. The truth about this reservation, done through booking.com, was that we had been called away... More
