“Don't stay here at the weekend!”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

When I phoned to book the room the guy that answered the phone did say it was a noisy pub and that they played loud music until 11.30pm - that would have been fine. The extremely loud music continued until 3am, it was so loud our bed vibrated. Also, because our windows were directly above the entrance, the drunk smokers (I don't have a problem with drunk smokers - I've been there!) were all talking very loudly until gone 3am.

The room itself was light, pleasant and the bed comfortable although the carpet could have done with a bit of a vacuum. We checked out on the Saturday morning without breakfast and paid a reduced price (not as much as we probably should have but we were too tired to argue). The guy who checked us out was apologetic and said he was always very clear about the noise level and was surprised I had been told the music finished at 11.30pm.

This is local's party pub which is fine if you want to join in - unfortunately we didn't.

Came for a weekend to Totnes with my husband & two other couples & stayed at the King William, from the time we got there until the time we left the landlord Dave couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were clean & comfortable & the beds were so comfortable. I suffer with a bad back & I had forgotten to bring my pillow from home, I didn't need it the pillows were lovely. The breakfast was cooked to order & the full english was brilliant, you don't need anything else all day. The locals were really friendly and when we come again we will certainly be booking into the King William.

Reviewed 17 September 2010

Had stayed at King William IV quite a few years previously and had indifferent opinion as it was chosen as budget accommodation. This time round found it under new management with friendly staff and a very approachable accommodating manager. Comfortable bed with clean well maintained room and a mega full English breakfast included! If you get the option ask for room 5. Furthest from the bar if you want to get to bed early. If not join the locals for a nightcap. Nice crowd.

Stayed for a couple of nights mid-week. Large room with newly fitted ensuite shower. Very comfortable bed. Hearty breakfast cooked to order. Very friendly staff, locals & landlord.
Close to everything in Totnes - restaurants, cafes, shops, museum, castle, church, other pubs, train & bus station, etc, etc. And just a few minutes drive to loads of other attractions and sights!
Because it's in the centre of town, expect early morning street noise. (Didn't bother us but some people seem to expect perfect silence.)
