Arrived on Sunday to a warm welcome. Our room was clean and bright on the front of the building. The added bathroom was on the other hand was something else. Small in fact very small couldn't even swing a cat. The shower head had a mind of its own, the shower unit was not even fitted to the wall properly....

Found this place by chance after exploring Dartmoor. Well worth a visit - the food is lovely and fresh. Nice laid back atmosphere when we went. My partner had the steamed cod & cauliflower which she said was lovely. I had the lasagne - you could taste all the fresh ingredients

I worried that it maybe noisy as I was next to the stairs but it was very quiet even though the hotel appeared to be almost full. The...

Room was well equipped and spacious. No views as hotel is off sea front and on main road so some traffic noise. Breakfast was excellent with choice of continental buffet or full English. Prebooking of parking worthwhile because very little parking available on road. 5 minutes walk to station, town, seafront or marina.
