My husband and I are walking the South West Coast Path and often do 10 -12 miles in a day. We always like to have a comfortable bed and most essentially a bath, which we find prevents stiffness. We found both of these at the Rosslyn Hotel. In recent years, many B+B s and small hotels have taken out bathrooms and put in en suites with no baths and less than adequate showers in an attempt to save water, but this is no good for walkers like us, now in our mid-fifties. So we were relieved to find somewhere with a bath, albeit a tight squeeze, as the proprietor pointed out to us on our arrival. The shower was OK but required tenacity and patience on the part of the user, to achieve a fairly consistent temperature. The bed had a firm mattress and was adequate. The walls were a bit thin, so we could hear our next door neighbours cough. The mattress was firm and comfortable and there were independent wall lights. Tea and coffee sachets were provided, though no hot chocolate sachets or any small biscuits. The view from our room on the front was panoramic and the window opened easily for adequate ventilation. A glance upwards to a water stain, which skirted an electric socket, made us grateful that we were not the owners of the property. The weather was not that hot, so we figured it would be OK, which it was. Access to the bathroom was via a sliding door which departed from its runners the first time I used it and I was concerned that anyone could get trapped behind it, which would have been dangerous in the case of a fire. So I insisted that my husband stayed in the room while I was using the bathroom. The furniture in the room was all new clean pine, with adequate hanging space and full length mirror. Everything was clean and very compact and the most had been made of the space. It was fine for our short stay of 3 nights. The dining room was spacious allowing privacy between tables and again the view from the large front window was interesting. The décor and upholstery were a bit tired. There was a choice of breakfast, which was well cooked and presented. The menu was a little misleading though, as it referred to a wide choice of fruit, which we did not find, and yogurt was not an option unless one opted for the continental breakfast. There was good table service, though the toast was cold by the time we came to eat it, but this is usually the case, unless it is self service. There was convenient parking at the hotel and the location was good for the town centre and only a ten-minute walk into town, though uphill on the way back, so we parked our car halfway down the hill on the second and third evenings. This was a no frills hotel, but did not lack any of the essentials and was good value for money.
