“Tidy and Did What it says on the tin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Group booked and I got lucky with the room with the four poster bed. Good location and friendly staff. Breakfast was good.

A little dated, with some rooms better than others. Wifi free but flakey.

Fine for a few days and can't complain at the price. Away from the noise of the front and a nice walk back up the hill after a few drinks

Room Tip: Room 1 or in the main building

The B&B is lovely, the room was large with good ensuite facilities and a welcoming hospitality tray. We stayed in room 7 which has a 4 poster bed and also had the use of a small fridge which was a welcome bonus to keep soft drinks cool. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with information on places to go. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. There is also parking on site which is very unusual and very welcome in Dartmouth. We will defiantly return.

If you're after a Spa & Swimming Pool then Townstal isn't for you. However, if like me you want a good, & reasonably priced, Bed & Breakfast then Townstal should be just your cup of tea. There's parking, which is a big plus in Dartmouth; my room was large & spotless clean; it's opposite the Royal Naval College (should you've family/friends training there); the traditional breakfast was good (I recommend the Kippers & Mushroom); & it is near to the bus stops for the 90 & 90A. I would walk down into the Town but would catch a bus back up the hill for under £2. There are plenty of nice restaurants in the Town for the evening. Blackpool Sands is only a short drive away. In an hour you can be up on Dartmoor & there's the Dart River to enjoy.

Stayed 3 nights late May 2014 and enjoyed it. Location is good, close (by car) to Dartmouth centre; hosts friendly and attentive, food good.

We used (no. 17) a disabled room and, unlike many places we visit, it had ample space, good shower facilities, good heaters, excellent non-slip surface in the bathroom. The walk to the front door for breakfast was maybe 100 feet, fairly level though partially over a gravel surface. We were able to park the car in a reserved space about 40 feet from the entrance to our room.

Room Tip: WiFi only works in the main building i.e., not good where we were.

We stayed here over an unusually quiet May bank holiday and stayed for 2 nights. The host was very welcoming, friendly and advised us on where to visit and eat in the area. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The walk down to town is easy but back up, you might want to get the bus that stops outside the b&b as its a steep walk. Breakfast was great and the host couldn't do enough for you.
We booked though laterooms.com and felt we'd over paid slightly compared to if we'd booked directly. But the friendly and comfortable stay made up for it.

Stayed for 3 nights over a long weekend. What a great little hotel, traditional, super friendly, very clean and comfortable. Big benefit is the car parking as Dartmouth has very limited access and parking, although the walk back up the very steep hill is a struggle it was well worth it for the views near the top and of course the benefit of wearing off some of the extra calories consumed in the many great restaurants in Dartmouth. Would recommend this lovely little place and the wonderful hospitality from Jean the owner made it special.
