We stayed here at short-notice and plucked the hotel at random - but what a lucky find! Its really a very special Guest House with only 5 rooms which are all beautifully decorated. Penny and Kit are a lovely couple who make you welcome from the moment you walk in the door (they made us afternoon tea in their lovely garden to welcome us and help us to settle in as soon as we got there). The room we had at the top of the house was absolutley gorgeous - all along a nautical theme with stunning views from our small balcony across the river Dart to Dartmouth.
We ate dinner in the hotel 5 times and the food was really top quality and again the atmosphere Penny and Kit created was relaxed and easy-going with guests swapping stories about what they had done during the day, where they would recommend others to go locally etc. - just a really informal feeling of friends getting together for a good meal. Oh and you can take your own wine!
There was nothing we would have changed, it was all just so perfect and Penny and Kit work incredibly hard to make it so. We will go back again without a doubt. In fact most of the people staying there during our stay were people who had been back several times!
