“The Bed and Breakfast others are judged by....”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I can say without hesitation that this is without any doubt the very best bed and breakfast I have stayed in anywhere in Britain. John and Emma make you feel so welcome, nothing is too much trouble for them. There is free parking right outside, the rooms are decorated to an impossibly immaccualate standard and the whole house is spotlessly clean. The beds will guarantee even the most difficult of sleepers a proper night's sleep, and when you wake there is the amazing breakfast, all the ingredients are locally sourced and tested for taste by John and Emma. I always have great fun when I stay there and to be honest when I am working or visiting Devon, I always stay at Penny Steps. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: Room 2 has the most beautiful view over the harbour and when I travel alone I always ask for the sma...

Had a wonderful 3 night stay with Emma and John who make you feel special but also like one of the family. The location and view is perfection which overlooks the marina. Brixham and Dartmouth are beautiful all year round. The cooked breakfasts are a work of art with locally sourced produce served up with a dash of ecentricity by the wonderful Emma and John " Basil Fawlty" Reseigh ! See you again soon

Emma and John are fantastic hosts, a tad eccentric but that's all to the good. The house is perfectly located with unbeatable views of the sea and harbour. The room we had was light, tastefully decorated and roomy. Breakfast is a show stopper. What is there not to like?
Parking is free and situated in the public car park 2 minutes walk from the house. We will definitely stay there again when we're in Brixton. Well done Em and John!
