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. Anything you could conceivably have forgotten was provided in the beautifully clean and well appointed room and...

Just spent a most enjoyable stay in Dartmouth in wonderful Mounthaven Guest House. The view from the River Room is to die for. The room itself was lovely with a Juliet Balcony and great views over the River Dart. Shaun and Rose couldn't have done more for us and the breakfasts were delicious. Everything in the bedroom was what you...

Superb stay. On arrival tea and chocolate cake served up by Shaun, delicious. We stayed in the College Room, overlooking The Britannia College, 8am each morning we had the pleasure of watching naval personal marching and listening to their band.

We have recently returned from our annual break to Mounthaven. Rose and Shaun welcomed us with homemade cake, tea and all the news and views. Talking of views, the vista of Dartmouth and Kingswear is amazing. The rooms are first class in every detail and there are more amenities here than in most luxury hotels.

Seriously, what a stunning location to view the delights of the Dart Estuary from. Stayed in The River View room towards the end of August and were in no way disappointed.

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
