My partner and I have just returned from two nights at Waterloo House, having purchased a Groupon voucher for the visit back in October.
First of all I would like to say that I cannot understand how some recent reviewers could be so picky and cruel - I was horrified by some of the things that were written and really feel that, having been there myself now, they were just looking for anything to moan about.
On our arrival, Penny greeted us incredibly warmly and we immediately felt at home - she really is a wonderful host and cares very much that her guests are comfortable and happy there. After being shown to our HUGE suite at the top of the house, she kindly made a pot of tea for us downstairs and told us about the area which was great as we hadn't visited Devon since we were children!
I love the house - it's got so much charm and character. Yes, it was cold at times but that's because it is February and the outside temp was below 0!
Back to the room - it was so cosy. Plenty of storage, a roomy ensuite shower room, hot drink making facilities, fridge with milk, hairdryer, big bed which was v comfortable, as well as two armchairs in a little nook with a tv which were fantastic at the end of our long and cold journey. We also appreciated the fleecy blankets and hot water bottles which Penny left out for us!
This is the vein in which our stay continued - although we didn't get to meet Paul (we were in and out quite a lot!), it was clear that the two of them go out of their way to ensure that all guests are catered for, be it recommendations of where to visit, directions on how to get there, or where to eat etc.
Can't wait to go back and get to know Penny and Paul/the area better.
