Stayed 1night. Conveniently situated so could walk into town. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast, bedroom small but fine for short stay. Ensuite fine. Nice shady garden to have a tea on arrival.

John and Sandra were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area to make suggestions for things to do. We went on the Totnes to Buckfastleigh on the preserved railway and went to the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary as it was raining on their suggestion which was great. Check Groupon for reductions in entry fees. We also did the Round Robin Circular Tour Totnes - Dartmouth - Paignton (not much in Paignton to see so spend your time in Dartmouth). They also made suggestions for places to eat and we had a lovely meal in Rumours. Room was a little smaller than expected but had everything we needed for our 4 night stay.

There was a nice friendly welcome from John & Sandra. The room was clean, well decorated and all we needed. They were always available to give help and advice on the local area. Easy walk into town. Plenty of choice for breakfast in a lovely dining room and conservatory, with views to pretty garden. A good starting point to visit a number of National Trust properties.
