“Fabulous stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

This is our first stay at Browns since they newly refurbished the rooms and we love the style.
The beds remain the most comfortable ever, the welcome as warm as ever, the bar staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious - they even provided gluten free bread. Highly recommended, we will be back soon!

What I particularly love about Browns is that blend of ancient and modern - quirky rooms each different from each other but done out with a clean, fresh house style with comfortable beds and gorgeously appointed bathrooms. We have been here on a couple of occasions before and always enjoy the experience. Great breakfast too - hearty and as healthy-tasting as a Full English can be with proper coffee and fresh juices! The staff are friendly, charming and efficient. Lovely.

Having stayed at Browns for almost a week, I do genuinely feel that some of the glowing reviews are somewhat generous. It is really no more than a glorified B & B with pretensions of marketing itself as a high end boutique hotel. The room was quite small, with very little storage space, only one chair for a double room, hideous LEATHER curtains with holes in, a bathroom basin really too small to wash in, no towel rail, and overlooked a very noisy street with pub and working mans club type of place opposite, complete with all the usual late night rowdy behaviour (there was a fight outside on our first night - thank goodness we didn't have children with us). Breakfasts were of the portion control variety ie: half a tomato, one mushroom sliced and fried. The website advertised smoked salmon, but there was none. Quite frankly, £145 per night weekend rate, did not in my opinion represent reasonable value. We have stayed in exceedingly good hotels that provided much more in terms of space, facilities, breakfast quality and overall value. The people in the room opposite showed us with some incredulity their windows, which were all frosted so they couldn't even look out!! On the plus side, the standard of housekeeping and cleanliness was very high, and the "free" car parking was a valued facility. We felt that the owners would probably have been more friendly had we eaten there at the weekend (they weren't doing food during the week), but the overall feel was not one of warmth and welcoming, particularly for a privately owned establishment. It would have been, for example, a nice and appreciated touch for a personal goodbye when we left!

Overpriced for basically bed and breakfast accommodation, for the price paid we expected luxury,
had better accommodation in B & B's at half the price!!Good bathroom, let down by the decor of the bedroom and lack of amenities in the room. Did not appreciate having to walk through the dining room and bar to access the bedroom. It felt more like staying in a pub with rooms rather than a hotel!!! Also breakfast was mediocre.

We booked a last minute mid week trip to Dartmouth and were delighted to find our hotel was so close to the quay side. Tastefully furnished bedroom (with lots of well positioned power sockets) and a lovely contemporary decor throughout the hotel. Our hosts and their team could not have been more friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to help us make the most of our two day break to Dartmouth. Very highly recommended.
