We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy with the accommodation. The owners are lovely and friendly and keep the rooms and bar spotlessly clean. We had a good hearty full English each day after an excellent night's sleep in very comfy beds. Our daughter stayed in a reasonable sized single while we had an enormous double room that even had room for a daybed! Our rooms were right next to the railway, but I can honestly say that it did not disturb us at all and was the quietest line we have ever heard! Hairdryers are in the rooms and plenty of space for clothes. Wifi is available, can be a bit patchy in the room, but strong in the bar.
The pub is very much a locals pub and quiet in the evenings. If you enjoy sports you will love the 2 sky sports screens plus the snooker table, darts and even shove ha'ppeny. The locals were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Its position was perfect for us as it was centrally placed for the places we wanted to visit - the Eden Project is about half an hour away, as is Morwellham Quay. It is just a turn off the A38 so easy to get wherever you want to visit.
The only downside for us was that there was no food available in the evening (we were aware of this before booking) and not that much choice locally. But if you are happy to drive into larger towns for the evening it won't be a problem.
The cost was by far the most reasonable around - which had made us a little nervous on booking- but we need not have worried at all. this is a real gem of a place and we highly recommend it.
