We’ve been staying at the Smugglers regularly since Chris and Russell ran it, and that’s got to be be nigh on 30 years ago. There have been substantial changes over the years. Gone are the oak beams and pirates scenario and in has come the stripped pine and pastel shades. There is still a nice family feel to the place and it’s still not expensive. (Mainly due to the inability to offer car parking) Rooms clean and bright. Staff clean and bright. Staff also knowledgeable and attentive. Menu pretty much as you’d expect for a hotel of this calibre - so basic grub with good portions and served promptly. It’s small but it’s still got bags of character. One of Brixham’s hidden gems. Recommended.

I had a one night stopover and obtained a good price for bed and breakfast. Check in was was quick and friendly. I was recommended a great local pub by the owner. The room whilst small was clean & comfortable. Breakfast was first class & was freshly cooked. The place had character which sets it apart from the chain hotels which many use. I would recommend the hotel & would use it if I am in the area.

The hotel is a lot larger than it appears from the front, full of character with winding little corridors and staircases. The decor is original, quirky and very nice. Our room was spotless, as was everywhere else in the hotel, and the service was excellent. We were made very welcome and very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing! Thank you for a lovely weekend.

Just returned from a relaxing 2 day stay here. Welcome excellent, room superb, clean and spacious, with toiletries, tea, coffee biscuits, little fridge if you wanted to use, and they supplied the wine glasses, very nice touch. We had lovely 2 seater couch in our room too, absolute bonus for chilling out after a days walking. Must agree with other reviewers, Smugglers is a treat, beautifully clean and tidy and lovely decor around and about. Breakfast was one of the best in a b and b that i have had. Friendly staff, beautifully presented and plenty of it. juice, toast, cereals, and cooked with generous coffee pot . Cant rate it highly enough. Bit of a tip about parking, you can buy a permit in advance from Torbay Council, online we had a 3 day one , was perfect but you must use it in the long term car parks of which there are a few in town. Nearest one is down by the harbour and you literally walk through by the harbour to the hotel. Literally 10 mins, 15 maximum. Was busy and would recommend booking a restaurant if you like the look of it. Thanks to Mark and the team, very enjoyable stay. Hope to return,

My wife and I only booked the hotel the day before we arrived. The manager explained over the phone that if we arrived after 5pm, we would have to telephone him to let us in. As we had spent the day touring around Cornwall, we didn’t arrive until 9pm. I did call around 6 from Land’s End to let him know that we would be late. He didn’t sound very happy, so I was a little apprehensive. I have previously spent a night in an old hotel - which was awful, so was doubly apprehensive. However, he was very welcoming and pleasant and our room - which was the last available - was clean and well maintained. The only downside is that although there is parking quite close, less than 100 metres away, it’s only short term, maximum 3 hours except after 6pm when it lasts until 8am. I got my parking penalty at 8:15!! The breakfast was excellent that morning and all the staff were friendly and pleasant. We would stay again at the hotel, but probably not in Brixham because of the lack of parking.

Great location. Sadly we only managed an overnight stay. We arrived late to a very friendly greeting. The hotel is very clean and tidy. The bed was very comfy. Great nights sleep. Good facilities in the room as I forgot my hairdryer. The staff are friendly and helpful. Explained about the door locking system. Great breakfast and plenty of choice. We will be returning again. Thank you very much.

Great stay, great staff, family run business which always gives a higher level of care. Am sure will return on my next visit, as it was spotlessly clean, comfortable and highly relaxing. If you need WiFi, then ask upon booking, so you can be accommodated with a room with stronger access, but if you’re visiting for leisure, I’d highly recommend having your phone off anyway so it’s irrelevant! Recommended stay.
