We spent 5 nights here at the beginning of April and had the stunning Castle view room. Rose and Shaun are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts and Shaun a fabulous cook - great breakfasts. The house is very handy for the town centre which meant that we only took the car out once during the week, a nice change for us...

It is also a pleasure for us to host great guest in our beautiful town. Hope the waist lines didn't expand to much.

For stunning views across Dartmouth, stay in either the 'castle view' or 'River view' room. The final room is 'college view ' which looks out onto the naval college. We found Mounthaven ideally situated for us, it is a bit of a walk uphill from town but so is most of Dartmouth and there is a bus service. Proprietors Rose...

Above all, Mounthaven is friendly - such pleasant, helpful and interesting hosts. Nothing too much trouble. Impeccably clean. Décor a matter of taste, fine for us, but with that fantastic and ever-changing view you won't actually notice your room! Good breakfast with easy conversation, rather like staying with friends. Location is perfect, so easy and quick to walk into town...

Stayed over the Christmas period and had a wonderful stay. The view from the bedroom window was to die for. Beautiful rooms and the breakfast was superb. Hosts were amazing. Will definitely be going back at some point.

We stayed at Mounthaven to enjoy the Christmas Market - the location is up a steep hill but easily walkable from the town centre and has the benefit of parking. Initial impressions were a bit negative as it is not clear which bell to press but the owners are welcoming. We booked late so had the college view room which...

A superb place to stay in every way. We had a glorious 7 nights and would do it again. Our hosts made us feel so welcome. The room we stayed in was amazing (Castle View room) with a view “to die for”. Breakfasts were excellent and whatever your choice, it was cooked to perfection. Dartmouth is somewhere we know well...

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in late September, it was our first trip to England and Dartmouth. We stayed in the castle room and from the moment Shaun showed us into the room, I couldn't take my eyes off the view of the Dartmouth harbor and beyond. It was stunning, actually one of the most beautiful views...

Where to start? I doubt if there is a better view from a B and B room than you get here. I can't imagine there are any better hosts. As for the breakfasts, they are everything you might expect but with so many special touches. Our stay was based around a visit to see our son at the naval college...

We recently stayed here for three nights. Rose and Shaun are not only lovely people but run their business with incredible attention to detail whilst ensuring that guests feel welcome and valued without that awkwardness that can come with staying in someone's home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Mounthaven Dartmouth's only 5 star guesthouse. Set over looking the river Dart and views to the sea it is a special place to relax. Within easy walking distance of the town center yet in a very quiet location with private guest parking (a must in old towns like ours) it truly is special. From the moment you enter, met with homemade cakes to waking to enjoy a breakfast of local produce much of which is grown in our gardens or made by us like the jams and marmalades you understand why our guest have given us such kind review. We suggest that rather than trying to book via a third party where limitations apply just drop us an email or give us a call to discuss how we can help. ... more   less
