Reviewed September 6, 2013

Lovely b&b right in the centre of Beer. The room was huge and had everything and more. Especially fudge on the teacups every day.
Breakfast was amazing and def had enough to keep us going till after ok tea!!

Stayed here for one night mid August and it was perfect! The room was spotlessly clean, the beds were SO comfortable and the shower was great. The room was very modern with a homely feel to it and the bathroom was brand new! (Well it looked it as it was sparkling). As for the breakfast in the morning, well that was delicious! There was plenty to choose from on the menu.

I would definitely recommend this B&B, the owners are very friendly and overall it’s an excellent place to stay.

Thank you for a lovely stay!

We recently stayed at Durham occupying 4 rooms, all were exceptionally clean and beautifully presented. The breakfasts superb, all choices! Martin and Shelley very helpful and welcoming. A lovely house in a prime location in Beer, which is a lovely calm relaxing Devon village.

Perfect! A lovely room, clean and well presented. The location is beautiful, the owners are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and they were kind enough to cook mine early as I had to leave. A lovely visit - would definitely go again.

Fantastic stay, Durham house has a great location in Beer. The room was spotless and very well maintained. I was a little worried about the showers from reading other reviews but there was lots of hot water and good pressure. This is obviously a well established and well run B&B with experienced owners. The breakfast was good - can reccomend the French toast. We'll definitely be back!

Relaxed but friendly welcome from the owner of this beautiful B&B. We had a lovely, spotlessly clean room. Durham house is perfectly placed in Beer. Close to the little harbour and near a couple of very good restaurants. A useful guide to all the amenities and to places to visit was left in the room.
Breakfast was delicious, with lots of choice from full english to cinnamon toast with maple syrup.
a very enjoyable stay. Would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: No tip needed. As far as i could work out all the rooms would be of the same high standard
