I stayed at The Wellsway for two nights, and it was absolutely top notch. This B&B is located a short walk from the waterfront in a beautiful neighbourhood. There is a car park out front. My room was up a flight of stairs and was very spacious with high ceilings. The bed was big and comfortable, there's a TV in the room, a lovely bathroom, and there are a lot of nice touches in the room like a complimentary bottled water and some guides to local restaurants, etc. On the ground floor there is a guest lounge and a dining room.
Pat and Whiskey were great hosts. The first morning I asked Pat whether they serve black pudding with the breakfast and she made a face before saying no (obviously she doesn't like it). She told me the local delicacy is hog's pudding. The next morning with breakfast they served me the usual full english plus black pudding and hog's pudding. They must have made a special trip to pick them up for me. I was impressed with that (and yes they were both delicious, as was the rest of the breakfast).
They were also very willing to offer advice on what to see in the area. I recommend going for a walk in Dartmoor National Park. Whiskey can point you to a good place.
Overall, probably the best B&B experience I've ever had. I can't recommend it highly enough.
