The Victorian House
Ranked #20 of 53 Dartmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 5, 2012

We've stayed in many, many B&Bs over the years and I can say without a doubt that the stay in the Penthouse in Victorian House was the best couple of nights of the lot. It's little touches that make somewhere very special: the tea and coffee tray not only had china cups and saucers and heavy glassware, but glass containers of tea and coffee and, gasp, a little cafetiere and a glass caddy of ground coffee! Bliss for a proper coffee-lover. There were more glass caddies of cotton wool and supplies in the bathroom. The bed was big and comfortable and with great bedlinen.

Breakfast was so good my partner felt the need to photograph it! Great sausages - you can tell an establishment by the sausage it chooses! There were home-made bread, preserves and even home-made brown sauce - a first for me. After breakfast the proprietress offered us a complimentary cream tea for later in the day so when we returned from our day around Dartmouth, pretty even in the rain, there were home made scones and jam (and I dare say home clotted cream!) Exquisite.

I couldn't fault the place, the catering or the welcome. Highly, highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Penthouse may LOOK expensive, but you get a lot for it. It used to be two rooms, but it is now o...

Having never visted Dartmouth area, we chose Victorian House and the Penthouse Room from tripadviser reviews. Thank you all. Sue & Alan were fantastic hosts, helpful and very thoughtful of your every needs. Had a lovely 4 days there and willl certainly return at some time. As has been said before, the rooms are lovely, the breakfast devine with so much home prepared breads, preserves etc and the Full English will leave anyone full till the evening. 5 minutes walk from some great eateries as well for your evening meals. Really no need to use the car for a few days stay. Thank You.

Room Tip: All rooms looked lovely, but the penthouse is definitely worth the extra.

Stopped here for 4 nights in the Penthouse. As ever, we've been here before, it was excellent. Sue & Alan make great hosts and work hard to ensure you enjoy your stay.
The rooms are clean and well presented, breakfast is superb with home made break, jam, marmalade and even brown sauce!
Its a few minutes walk from the hub of the town, but far enough out to avoid traffic.

Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Go for the Penthouse, adds to the stay I promise

We stayed with Sue 6 years ago and our expectations were exceeded, just back from a 1 night stay and we were not disappointed.
The penthouse room is certainly worth every penny and the breakfast sets you up for a days exploring. Dartmouth is a fantastic location and the Victorian house really is the icing on the cake, deserves to be #1 in Dartmouth. Our place to stay in Dartmouth, no hesitation, no need to shop around when you are happy with perfection. Thank you Sue, you are an amazing host.

Stayed for one night in the Penthouse. Very clean and well presented. All the usual you would expect from a 5* bed and breakfast. Excellent English breakfast with homemade bread and preserves. Sue and Alan were very friendly and hospitable. Would definately stay again.
