We went here for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon, the sun was shining so we sat and eat in the small courtyard garden. The food was great, service was good and all the people there seemed happy and enjoying themselves. Will defo return here again soon.

We stayed at the Golbe Inn for 4 nights and found the whole experience gret. The rooms are small but well resourced and the staff are excellent. Friendly, attentive and always smiling - what more could you want.
The restaurant was even better, super choice on the menu which changed daily, served with humour and charm. Food was excellent, reasonably priced and for a "chain" hotel a real treat.
We are already planning next years trip.

Okay, there's no parking to speak of, and finding the pay & display car park up the road involves some negotiating of very, very narrow winding roads, but that's the only drawback we found. This is a very well-developed, luxurious little hotel in a tiny, picturesque riverside port, very close to Exeter. We were there overnight, arrived about 7pm, were shown to our ancient and beautifully fitted-out room, had a delicious supper, slept extremely well on the most comfortable bed I've encountered in a very long time. Everything was done very well indeed. Breakfast was delicious and served rapidly, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and we'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: The old rooms above the bar are gorgeous and full of character, but do involve steep steps. The mode...

I stayed here on Sunday night (28/07/13) with my sister, our room was absolutely lovely! Seemed like it had recently been refurbished to a really high standard, the decor and facilities were spot on right down to the gorgeous toiletries in the bathroom! The price is extremely reasonable for what you get. My sister and I are both vegetarian and the very friendly and helpful staff went out and got us veggie sausages for breakfast especially! All round a very pleasant stay, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay whilst visiting Topsham or Exeter!!!

We had lunch here last week. The food in the two courses for £12 was plentiful and very tasty. The service and courtesy of the staff was exemplary and they were very keen to make sure that we were happy. The choice of coffees was very good and in very large cups. There has been a marked improvement since the new managers have taken over and I am sure that there things will get even better. I will certainly go back and take friends there on our visits to Topsham

We had a large group event here with dinner. Service was outstanding from all the team and Adam in particular made us feel like we were regular visitors. Food was good vale and the refurbished rooms very comfortable - particularly the bathroom. The only gripe was no air-con given the 'freak' temperatures! Would happily go back and probably will - a welcome change from the national chains with staff who care.
