“the best hosts at the best guest house”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

If you hav'nt experienced Sampford House in Brixham yet, may I suggest that you put it on your list of things too do. Matthew and Rosie are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. Sampford house itself is a real taste of Brixham, but with plenty of bling attached. Over the years my wife and I have probably frequented every room in the house and they are all first class as are the en-suites. Rosie's breakfasts are spot-on and certainly set you up for the day, and any local information you might need, Matthew is always on hand to help. No wonder then, that we keep going back, and once you visit , you'll keep going back too!

It's very difficult to be original in rating such a property as the Sampford Harbour View Guest House as others have said it all before!

It is a delightful 18th Century Fisherman's Cottage sensitively adapted for 21st century needs, whilst retaining all the quirks of low ceilings etc. The view from our room [Room 5] was directly over the inner harbour - pictures attached - and that was truly delightful.

A very clean house with a very large range of breakfast options - all beautifully cooked and presented.

We received a very warm - genuine - welcome from our hosts and were made to feel very much at home and that nothing was too much trouble. When telephoning the day before to confirm our booking in time we were offered to arrive at 10.30am - to leave our luggage and Noon to move in - a great help to us and something which other establishments don't usually offer.

So it does live up to everything you will see on the website and more.

Thank you Rosy and Matthew for a great start to our holiday

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 5 are the highest in the building and will offer the best view over the harbour.

Booked a room as a surprise for our son and daughter-in-law. As usual Matthew was very helpful with the booking, even providing a Gift Certificate. We are pleased to say they were more than happy with the room and service provided and we will have no hesitation in booking either here or one of the other properties again.

We have been going to Sampford House since 2011, we have stopped in the main part of the guest house for the last 3 years and this year we stopped in the fisherman's cottage adjoining Sampford house all of which are first class accommodation, if you haven't yet visited I'm sure you won't be disappointed and you too will want to keep going back, as we have done. Once again Rosie and Matthew's hospitality is outstanding, nothing is ever too much trouble, and
they always go out of their way to ensure that everything you could want is catered for, including having no worries about parking the car for the whole of your stay as there is a carpark space provided for you, the views are amazing, the rooms are clean and fresh with lots of tea and coffee making facilities . Rosie's breakfasts are fantastic and will set you up for the day. Matthew is extremely knowledgeable about the local area with plenty for you to see and do. Thankyou both again for the first class service you both provided during our stay, we will be back. Ian & Sue P.

We were lucky enough to stay here on the sunny day of Saturday 17th May. We booked last minute & got the last available room :-) Absolutely loved this place from the moment we arrived when Matthew and Rosie came out to greet us and help us with our luggage. Such a welcoming & friendly couple! We had room 4 which had the most fantastic view of Brixham harbour it was a very clean & light room which was also nicely decorated. We were meeting our family at the Poopdeck restaurant (highly recommended also) and it took us 2 minutes to walk there (ideal!) Breakfast in the morning was very tasty & loved the fact they had homemade yogurt & marmalade. The full English was one of the best i have had! Fantastic location, stunning views & we will definitely be back!
