We where do I start, we only found out about this fantastic little place by accident, as I was looking at all the B&B`s on Babbacomb Downs, which is where we had chosen to stay, however, they were all booked up so I carried on looking on google map and just noticed the pub which I found very quaint and colourful with all the glorious plants. As I zoomed in to take a closer look, I noticed a sign in an upstairs window advertising luxurious rooms to rent and I was lucky enough to secure my booking!! So we have just spent 4 lovely days at the Buccaneer Inn.
I was a bit dubious about staying above a pub, because of the noise aspect and never having done it before, however I had nothing to worry about as these Two exquisite rooms have been very cleverly sound proofed so even on very busy Friday and saturday nights we could hear nothing!!!! The rooms have a huge fabulous indoor balcony with seating and panaramic views across the bay. They are lovely and clean, very modern and the bed was devine! It had a very spacious immaculately clean bathroom with beautiful crisp, clean and pure white linen! (They don`t call me the hotel Inspector for nothing!) There was tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival with fresh milk in a small fridge and there is also a microwave should you bring a late night snack back!
Marion will cook you a breakfast if you order the night before, however, there is no need as there are a number of good little cafes offering excellent breakfasts, one being right next door!
What I really loved about staying here is that the Owners are very warm and welcoming and upfront about their room service which is: there is none! This meant that we were left alone for the whole of our stay as they do not provide cleaners or someone to make your bed, which was great as I like my privacy, and I did not have to tidy my room every day!! But if you needed anything replacing you only had to ask! I would recommend these rooms to anyone, I have stayed In Five star Hotels which did not have comfortable beds nor did they have that personal service.
Food is excellent!! but I must warn you not to have lunch before you come for an evening meal as the meals are HUGE! Meals are delivered to your table but, having seen some of the reviews moaning about having to help themelves, DO NOT EXPECT TO BE WAITED ON, THIS IS A PUB SERVING INEXPENSIVE RESTAURANT QUALITY FOOD NOT AN EXPENSIVE RESTAURANT, THIS IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICE! There are plentiful , good quality condiments and utensils to set your table yourself whilst you are waiting for your food and be sure to get yourself a drink before you sit down to your meal as it is not waitress service.
If you are Traditional ales drinkers then you will be in PARADISE! as the beer is fantastic and obviously Steve and Marion really care, as this reflected in the taste, after all their dedication and hard work, it has paid off, as they have achieved the coverted CAMRA membership award this year and they really deserve it! My husband was in his element, being a CAMRA member this was the pub of his dreams!
All in all we had a fantastic stay at the Buccaneer which was all down to Steve, Marion and their fantastic team! and for this, Keith and I would like to say a massive thank-you to you all!
WE WILL BE BACK!!!
