Reviewed 30 August 2013

My boyfriend and I are just finishing our time here (tonight is our last night) This b&b is immaculate and very high spec, obviously spent lots of time money and care on the building, very warm welcome, great breakfast, and a lovely historic setting. Would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I are very weary of B & Bs, as we feel we are interrupting the owners personal home.
How wrong can you be. The host Trevor has got this exactly right, a B & B based on a hotel stay.
Who could believe your breakfast would be delivered to your bedroom at the exact time as requested, and eat in your bedroom, without thinking you are in someone's dining room and making small talk.This idea should be taken further as a franchise.
Trevor very well done, a perfect host, impeccable house keeping, superb rooms, excellent breakfast, ideally placed in the middle of a fantastic town.
In short you must stay here ! ! ! ! We stayed 3 nights and what an outstanding experience.

We celebrated 15 years of marriage and decided to spend some quality time together away and that's what we had at the Rockmount B&B - quality! Friendly welcome by Tony the owner who also made a super breakfast. The bed was huge and so comfy with luxurious bedding almost didn't want to get up but was easily tempted into the stunning bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities in room along with hair dryer, iron and ironing board if needed. Location 2 minutes walk to the town centre where there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. There's an indoor market well worth a visit open Tuesday to Saturday. The viaduct makes a lovely walk and views over the town. Would definitely recommend staying here as it is also a great base to visit surrounding areas including the Moors, Lydford Gorge, Dartmoor Prison Museum and many more.

Room Tip: Room 2 has bedroom, bathroom and a separate dressing room with a view of the viaduct. Its on 1st flo...

We wanted a 'dog friendly' hotel and stumbled upon The Rockmount through internet searches and booked the self contained 'Garden Room' annexe. We could not have found anywhere better and at £110/night represents good value for money! The annexe suite was very well appointed, comfortable and well thought out - we loved the decor! It was a joy to sit outside on the small private terrace with a drink at the end of a long day's drive from Lincolnshire and listen to the swallows and swifts flying overhead and also an unexpected treat - the Tuesday evening bell ringing practice taking place in the parish church. Our GSD dog Sheba was made very welcome by Tony the proprietor and if ever we travel to this area again, we will definitely try and book this room for our stay. Overall, I would say this is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in and we have no problem in recommending a stay at The Rockmount, you are guaranteed to enjoy it.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with your dog(s), the garden annexe is a must.

There was absolutely nothing to Fault about this place.......the only minor problem for me was that I was actually visiting Plymouth. However, it was so good that when I visit Plymouth again I will not be looking for anywhere closer.

Unfortunately I didnt have breakfast having booked through an online site. I think I actually regret this as I am sure it would have been wonderful.

The host is very helpful, very thoughtful, always there but discreet and courteous. A very nice chep indeed.

The rooms are very nicely decorated and furnished and on the whole no expense has been spared on fittings with a special mention for the bathrooms.

The location is brilliantly convenient and you can park literally within feet of your door.

Forgot to mention the bed was very nicely adorned and very comfortable.

The room cleanliness was superb and of a very high standard. Whilst we were out some poor sole even hung up all of our clothes......wew dint really expect that level of service but hey, what a lovely surprise.

Keep up the good work......its working.

Kindest Regards

Gavin.

Room Tip: Take any one at the Rockmount.

This was our second stay at the Rockmount and once again everything was excellent and the welcome received from Tony was ideal. Tony manages to maintain an efficient B&B whilst keeping the atmosphere relaxed and open. The rooms are very well appointed with everything you could need and are kept very clean and tidy. The decor is modern and very stylish. Breakfast is first rate. I have stayed in hotels all over the world and this is one of the best breakfasts I have had. Eating in your room also adds a cosiness which I liked.
We used the Rockmount as a base for some hill walking in Dartmoor and for this it is ideal being very close to the moors. One evening we had a drink on the decking as the sun was falling in the sky making for a very relaxing end to the day. The location of Rockmount is excellent enabling a very short walk to the restaurants of the town for an evening meal and close to a small COOP for anything vital. I cannot recommend this B&B enough

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

Garden apartment- amenities were perfect for us - high standard of facilities - nespresso coffee machine as example. Deco - totally loved. Well thought through - would only suggests if this type of weather persists an extra window next to bedroom area that can be opened. Tony - only wishes to please - an absolute delight! Booking.com needs to be clear on facilities ie continental breakfast and self contained in respect of garden appartment.
