Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was my second stay at One Drake Road and I’m sure I will be back again... and again! As soon as I walked through the door I felt the relaxing, calming energy envelop me. Jack and Ian are the perfect hosts to all the guests- welcoming and so informative and helpful with local recommendations, tips and information. They can recount so many stories about the interesting history of the house!
The shared areas (drawing room, hallways, kitchen) are stylish, comfortable and spotless. This time we stayed in a room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was spotlessly clean every time I used it and it was regularly cleaned between uses.
Our room was spacious and beautifully furnished with two huge windows- it was just so relaxing! This really is a beautiful gem of a B&B.

Myself and a friend spent the weekend at One Drake Road, we were greeted by the lovely hosts Jack and Iain on arrival and were even offered some homemade scones, Jack is quite the baker, as they were delicious.
We were shown to our rooms that were located on the lower ground floor, 2 beautiful rooms next to each other that shared a bathroom, with a communal area which provides amenities to make tea and coffee, there is also a small courtyard to sit outside. These two rooms feel like your own private area of the B&B so would definitely recommend for friends or couples visiting together.
The bed was very comfortable and the rooms have a cosy feel to them, with all the required necessities.
The cleanliness of the property is top notch and there is a lovely smell that runs through the property, I'm sure it was Tubereuse candles.

I stayed as a guest of Jack and Iain who own and run One Drake Road, a glorious boutique hotel with a homely but classy feel.
From the moment I arrived having had a long drive to Tavistock I was greeted by Jack who is a warm, friendly and welcoming person. He showed me to room which was the Drake room which was beautifully presented with great attention to detail in design and with high quality bedding, towels and Neil's Yard products free to use. A great touch to make you feel spoiled.
The atmosphere in the hotel is homely and you feel like you are staying with friends which iain and Jack make you feel. I chose to have breakfast in the kitchen and Jack and Iain chatted with me and shared local knowledge of where I could visit, eat and drink.
I slept very well both nights i stayed on the comfortable bed and lovely white soft high quality sheets and lots of pillows and cushions which make lit feel luxurious too.
The shower was great and good water pressure
The WiFi worked very well and was fast speed
I was fortunate to shown around all the rooms by Iain ( my request as I loved the style of the interior) and I was impressed with the continuity of the design and quality throughout. So whichever foom you stay in you will have the same high quality experience I had.
In summary,
I must stay hotel in the heart of Tavistock so easy to reach many places of jnterest
High quality interior and beautiful rooms
Relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Attention to detail
Great tasty breakfast cooked by Jack
Great value for what is on offer

Lastly , iain and Jack will ensure you have a wonderful stay and I will definitely be returning and will recommend to all my friends !

This was our second visit and it was just as enjoyable as the first. We took the apartment in the basement this time which was perfect as our two teenagers had one room and we had the other. There was music playing when we arrived, treats in the fridge and plenty of books, games and magazines to relax and enjoy and of course free wifi. The apartment was full of candles, diffusers and Neal's Yard toiletries, so everywhere smelt delicious. There was an ingenious kitchenette to make our own breakfast (and drinks during the day) and we had our own entrance which meant we could come and go as we pleased. It felt like a boutique hotel as Iain and Jack have filled the rooms with beautiful, eclectic furnishings and unique decorations. I highly recommend a visit, it really is top notch!

Eclectic, stylish, thoughtful, and friendly - my words to describe One Drake Road. Jack, Iain and their dog Grace made me feel very welcome, which makes a big difference as a lone traveller. My room smelled divine with fresh flowers and candles and was well stocked with bath and beauty products. Breakfast was outside in the courtyard, a perfect way to start the day, and the drawing room was a comfortable and inspiring place to do some work. I highly recommend One Drake Road.

We were recommended this place and it didn’t disappoint. We were greeted with a fabulous warm welcome by Iain and Jack who couldn’t do enough for us throughout our stay.
The rooms was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. The hotel has a really quirky vibe which we loved. The bed was really comfortable and we had no trouble getting a good nights sleep.
Our hosts went above and beyond the call of duty regularly checking that we had everything we needed. Jacks home made soda bread is to die for and Iain gave us an itinerary of things to do which was perfect. We recommend the walk into Whistmans Wood, which we would never have known about - very pretty.
Great location for this hotel in the centre of town and the restaurants that Iain recommended were all excellent.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough and we cannot wait to come back here!!

What a beautiful place!!

We stayed on the top floor, along with friends in the room adjacent to us for new year.

We were greeted by Iain as we arrived who was very welcoming.

From the moment you walk in you are wowed….beautiful things to look at, amazing scents and a lovely touch of music within the communal areas.

Both rooms were very well appointed, with high quality toiletries and beds that were SO comfortable! We all had a great night sleep.

We were will definitely be recommending One Drake Road to anyone who will listen 😍

Wow what can we say?! One Drake Road is absolutely stunning. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Iain we were swept up in luxury. We had a lovely cup of tea in the beautiful Drawing Room which is so exquisitely decorated. Our bedroom was beautiful too with lovely touches by Jack and Iain especially the Neal’s Yard products. Lovely tea and coffee facilities in the room with mugs! Perfect! Iain recommended a fab restaurant The Cornish Arms which was just round the corner and served delicious food. Then after a great night’s sleep we were cooked a fantastic full English breakfast and also toast, marmalade, cereals, yoghurt etc etc and lots of tea! We will be back! Thank you for our stay x

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this absolutely beautiful house - which really feels like “home” from the moment you walk in the door rather than just a house! My husband and I stayed in “Dartmoor” a big, beautiful double room with a bathroom shared with just one other room. I was a little nervous of the shared bathroom as I usually only book en suite rooms but it was lovely, bright and scrupulously clean and actually added to the friendly and relaxed vibe of the house. There is a stunning, large communal living room where you can relax, have a glass of wine, read a book, play cards etc. Iain and Jack are the most delightful and charming hosts who really bend over backwards for you and you can see take real pleasure in making sure everyone is having a great stay. We will be sure to return soon - thank you so much I & J for making us feel so welcome!

Iain and Jack were the perfect hosts for our one night stay. We were greeted with a welcoming drink, and then shown to our room which was spacious, impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. Soothing classical background music, Neals Yard toiletries, an abundance of magazines, delicious homemade brownies, all made us feel special.
They had thoughtfully pre booked a restaurant for us as we were arriving late, which again was perfect, and even escorted us there.
We enjoyed a very comfortable nights sleep and a steaming hot shower in the morning.
The only regret we have is that we could only stay one night.
We will definitely return and would recommend One Drake Road to anyone.
Thank you Iain and Jack!
