“Top class B&B”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

As a family with two young boys we were delighted with the accommodation at Rockmount B&B.
The greeting and service from Lizzie was friendly and helpful without being imposing. There's no dining room ( although we understand there are plans afoot!) so breakfast is served in your room. Having said the food was exactly as ordered, well presented and thoroughly enjoyed.
The room was stylish and very modern and the bathroom even more so. The boys room was small but that didn't bother them and as parents we appreciated them being close but not too close!
We would certainly recommend this B&B and as we have friends in Tavistock it proved ideal and one we would certainly use again in future.

My wife and I had a lovely overnight stay at the Rockmount B&B.
Room was a little small because we booked late and was only one available but all other aspects compensated for this.
Bedroom was tastefully decorated and equipped with particularly well kitted-out shower /toilet area.
Breakfast was really nice and was exactly as ordered and served in our bedroom.
Arrangements for entry to the B&B were cleverly thought out Lizzie was very nice in looking after us and advising on local attractions.
We would most certainly like to stay again at the Rockmount in the future but booking earlier in the hope of a larger room.

Room Tip: Book early so that you can choose your room.

Very stylish & well considered. Fantastic facilities which that are usually not offered on b&b. Friendly staff that make u feel well looked after. Fab interior design that enhances the relaxed & comfortable feel of the room.

Had two comfortable nights stay at the Rockmount. The accomodation is very modern ,very clean and comfortable. The room, although not large, had everything we needed,it had modern decor and very comfortable bed, the bathroom was excellent with a fabulous shower. No wardrobes, but the hooks and drawers were adequate for our needs. Breakfast ,with a very comprehensive menu and a choice of teas,was served in the room .Menu card filled in the night before with the time required,and then breakfast is nicely cooked and beautifully presented on a tray with lovely crockery and china cups, which enhances the taste of the tea, so much better than thick cups. Table and chairs in the room. Rockmount is situated in a very quiet location considering it is a shortwalk into town. Tavistock has a good range of shops and restaurants. We visited Rockmount after staying in a much larger hotel ,overlooking the sea in Bournemouth ,and it compared very favourable. Would certainly stay again.

I booked for 5 nights but found the room was so small and the bathroom was really cramped. No dining room or lounge so interaction with other guests was non existent. No wardrobe in the room just a hook behind the door and on the wall. Venetian blinds did not block out light. Breakfast on tray in room has to be booked night before as to time required. I asked for a refund which was denied, and I understood this as it was stated on the booking info but I was also told that should I find alterative accomodation then I had to move out, even though I had paid for the full 5 nights as it was "unfair to us" to have an unused room. I stayed elsewhere for 3 nights but did not "check out" as I felt the room was paid for and they could have met me halfway. I did not meet the owner. Room was clean, taps and bathroom fittings very mod but awkward as it was so small.. On quite steep hill to walk from town.

Rockmount, Owner at Rockmount, responded to this review, April 21, 2012
Some hours after arriving at my B&B you telephoned me on three seperate occasions complaining about the restricted width of the roads in Tavistock and the fact that you could not unfold the wing mirrors on your car, this was clearly a warning of what was to follow.
To expect public meeting areas and a restaurant in a four bedroom B&B, even with our high standards, is perhaps a little unrealistic.
All the bedrooms are of a size that comfortably accept king size beds and whilst you labour the point that breakfast is delivered on a tray you fail to mention the table and chairs in the room from which to enjoy the freshly prepared dishes of your choice. We also find that our regular guests are very happy to decide for themselves what they would like for breakfast and when they would like to eat it.
A refund under such circumstances is not possible and I unfortunately do not understand your ramblings about alternative accommodation and having to move out.

We stayed at the Rockmount for six nights whilst exploring surrounding area. Long enough to find a fault but there weren't any! Liz gave us a warm welcome even though we were VERY late in arriving. Our room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. Decor modern but not minimalist. Bathroom superb! We weren't sure about breakfast in room when booking but it was great. Table and chairs, plenty of room, good choice and always perfectly cooked and presented. We would not look elsewhere if returning to the area. Thank you Liz, for your helpful hosting and a very relaxed stay!

Check in / out was very simple and friendly service from the owner at all times. Room was very luxurious as well as the bathroom. Mod cons a plenty such as a Nespresso coffee machine and an extremely comfy bed. Breakfast served to your room at time convenient to you and excellent quality. Would definitely visit again and have recommended to many already. Great value for money and just a short walk into Town (2 mins)

Room Tip: Request room 2 (upstairs)
