Although this B&B was clean, if you can excuse the hairs in the bottom of the shower tray! There was a strong smell of stale fried food when you entered, after ringing the doorbell several times, there is a sign up giving phone no's to ring if no-one is in, not very welcoming & doesn't give a good first impression. The door was finally opened by another guest & after a further wait a lady came-possibly the cleaner, who then went off, leaving us to again sit & wait, she eventually returned with our room key, it was all very unfriendly & she didn't seem to be expecting us. Its a typical B&B, nothing special & the town of Dawlish leaves a great deal to be desired, it needs a complete overhall & unless you like chips & 'junk food' the choice of places to eat is shocking. We asked in a local shop for a reccommendation of a resturant & were told 'not around here'. We will not be returning.
