We only stayed one night and we couldn't have asked for more! Nikiya and Ian were very accommodating. Everything was clean, Wifi good and only a quick walk to town. Breakfast was great and Nikky certainly won't let you go hungry!!! All in all a great stay and Nkki is so vivacious, it certainly rubs off!!

We booked a room through booking.com and had advised that we would arrive between 6 and 7. Sadly this message did not get through and we missed the text that was sent whilst we were driving there from the B&B. We had a job to find the B&B as the sat nav took us to the back, so on arrival... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Lyme Bay Guest House, Dawlish and were sadly very disappointed. We had paid a total of £186 for our stay. We appreciate that the Tariff included breakfast, WIFI, a charge for our dog and parking on site. Comparing it with other places, we have stayed in recently for similar... More

Good room - great welcome - first-rate breakfast Nikki and Ian are wonderful hosts and charming people, who have obviously put a great deal of thought into the small things that make for a top-class B & B The breakfast was probably the best of its type I have ever been presented with. We would definitely stay again !

Spent one night in Dawlish in August, its best to book directly with them, as they are finding other booking sites frustrating. Its in a great spot, very close to the town centre, walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The owners were really helpful, and the Breakfast very good. Rooms were very clean, and bed comfy.

You will struggle to find a better B&B than this in Dawlish. Lovely friendly owners, nice clean and comfortable rooms and very nice breakfast. It even has a small bar which was very handy. Only two minute walk to town centre and seafront. Ample parking for several cars. Had a lovely 2 night stay here and would return without hesitation.

On arrival, we were impressed by the building and the well kept appearance. Ian greeted us at the door by name and booked us into our room. The room (4) was gorgeous and decorated to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Every part of the room was good quality. The breakfast cooked by Niki was delicious and her manner with... More
