This is a lovely room only accommodation. Perfectly situated, with a reserved parking space around the corner. Room spotless, bed huge, and there was a bath with a shower over. We would recommend this to anyone, and would definitely return.

We spent three nights at The Captains House recently and would certainly recommend this place. The rooms were light and airy, spotless, and the beds were very comfy. Perfect location for the harbour, shops and restaurants. My only negative comment for our room was that it didn't have a full length mirror, just a small point though, in an otherwise... More

We spent two nights at the Captain's House and found the stay very comfortable. The previous reviews have accurately captured most of the key points about cleanliness, location and facilities all of which are excellent. The reserved parking space nearby is a huge bonus for such a central location in Dartmouth. The winding stairs might prove difficult for the elderly... More

The Captain's house is in a great location, just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Dartmouth and the sea. The room has to be one of cleanest I have ever stayed in and would not look out of place in a 5 star hotel.

Just back from 2 nights at The Captains House. Lovely guest house with clean rooms decorated to a high standard. Good central location one street back from the Marina. Lots of places close by for breakfast and a great base for exploring. Stair case was difficult to manage with young Children, however I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Very clean room with en suite shower. You'll receive a parking permit nearby the house. Bed was very comfortable with big wardrobe and loads of character. Very convenient location in beautiful Dartmouth.

We stayed here with friends for a long weekend, and were delighted with our visit. The rooms were clean, spacious and the house itself was perfectly located for the centre of Dartmouth.

Having never experienced 'Bed only' before, it was the most pleasant surprise to stay at The Captain's House recently. The house is quietly situated, within only a couple of minutes from the quayside - and with the added bonus of conveniently close, free parking. A most valuable asset in Dartmouth. Our room, at the front of the house, was well... More
