“You have to Stay there!!!!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2011

We have just come back this weekend from staying the Saturday night at this hotel.
I booked it through recommendations on Tripadviser and was a little worried because the reviews were not always great and it was a special weekend.
When we arrived we were made to feel really welcome and were shown to our room by Charlie who was lovely. We stayed in the Beatty Room which was lovely. Slightly small but very cosy. It was nice and modern and clean. Everything about the hotel was great and we really enjoyed the breakfast and not having a Fry up was a refreshing change. Plenty of fresh fruit salad, breads and cheeses for everyone.
We would definately go back and stay there and the price was great compared to some other hotels in Dartmouth. We also loved the location being at the end of the busy town.
You have to stay there, we both loved it for its charm.

Please don't listen to the bad reviews, this place has recently been taken over. The back door is actually OK and there isn't a steakhouse, instead there's a delightful cafe. We also found the staff friendly.

We arrived and had lunch in the small but adequate cafe, it did simple food, sandwiches and teacakes. We were then showed to our room, Drake. It is smaller than on the website but it is still nice and full of character.

In the morning, the staff were very friendly and talked to everyone there. Breakfast was plentiful for only 15 or so guests. Fresh bread from the bakers, fruit salad, smoked fish, yoghurt, cereal. They don't do fried breakfast though which could have been a disappointment.

This hotel is the best hotel in Dartmouth and relatively cheap. However, car parking is an issue but get there early and you may grab a space!

Room Tip: Get there early and grab a space!!!

A very special B&B- Angus and Charlie were excellent hosts and looked after us for the entire weekend and were full of helpful advice on where to go and when . Angus even carried our bags in for us and helped us find a parking space. The location is a major plus; in amoungst the pubs, restaurants and bustle of Dartmouth- but quiet when shut eye was needed.

Such places are hard to find these days... we will return in earnest.

Since this hotel was taken over by new management in the latter part of 2010, this hotel has improved hugely. Angus and Charlie are the most friendly and helpful hosts who couldn't do enough for us. Our children adored them, especially when they were allowed to 'help' in the cafe which involved being given order pads and a pen to take pretend orders with. This kept them occupied for about 2 hours on a dismal rainy morning. The rooms are a very good size, clean with good facilities. We had a little room for the children which was off the bathroom which was ideal as it meant we could sit up and have a glass of wine and a chat after the kids had gone to bed. Angus was very helpful in finding out information on what to do for us and didn't grumble when we disturbed his evening on TWO occasions as we had forgotton our keys. Our room was right above the pub and I was worried about being disturbed by the noise of the patrons, but it turned out to be no problem. There was the odd bit of laughing noise but not much and it was all quiet after 11pm. The continental breakfast was lovely and had enough to satsify our picky children. The only down bit was having to leave as my daughter cried and cried and didn't want to go! We will definitely be back again. It was a perfect little holiday.

Angus gave a very warm welcome. The room was cosy, clean and had everything we needed. Good tray with hot drinks, biscuits, bottled water. Toiletries in the bathroom. Breakfast was a good selection of fresh bread, thick ham, cheese, fruit salad and cereals. The hotel was very close to shops and to the harbour.

The new manager Angus and his partner Charlie could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our room/suite was spotless, plenty of room with three separate sleeping areas - two of which had TV's. The continental breakfast suited us very nicely as there was plenty to choose from and as much as we wanted (great coffee too!). We enjoyed being in the centre of Dartmouth and had no problems with noise but we were there in December. We will certainly be going back in May. Please note with its new owners the name has been changed to Bayards Cove Inn.

I found every aspect of this hotel to be excellent. The managers were very helpful and friendly both prior to and during the stay, ensuring a 'homely feel'. The rooms were cosy and well furnished with sky tv, a very comfortable bed and a very good shower.
