I like hotels with character like this one. Nice patio adjacent to the river and welcoming, helpful staff. Our room had a slightly sloping floor and with the double glazing open we had the sound of the River Dart bubbling over the stones below the window. Nice view up and down the river. Normally we make it a rule to eat away from the hotel we stay at but the Abbey Inn restaurant looked nice so we tried it. Steak and accompanying veg excellent. For dinner on our second evening we ate in again and can say that the scampi and steak/ale pie were also excellent. Carpets and decor etc in the hotel corridor areas were a bit old, but that's all part of the quaint character and I hope it isn't spoiled when it is redecorated one day. The building is very old and apparently was built as the quarry-master's house for the nearby quarry. It is on sloping ground so a slope, steps and stairs are unavoidable.
