Tip, try to get to Babbacombe use the cliff railway to Oddicombe beach, great spot for families young or slightly older. 20 mins from Dawlish and if there early enough free parking in road near railway entrance.

Our trip to Dawlish was delayed due to severe thunderstorms knocking out train signals on the rail line. Bob met a weay group at the train station and immediately had us settled and in the garden for refreshing drinks! Our husbands arrived with cars shortly and joined us in the relaxation. Josie made a 'simple supper' for us - and it was a delicious four course dinner - complete with a surprise birthday cake for one of our friends. The rooms are absolutely wonderful, breakfast a treat. Bob and Josie are masterful in providing information,recommendations, dinner reservations and shopping hints. Dunluce House was a wonderful stay during our trip.

my wife and i stayed here with our 6 year old son. from our first contact with bob and josie we found them to be very helpful and accomodating. we stayed in the room at the top of the house which had a very comfortable double bed and the room was spacious enough to have a fold down bed in and it still had plenty of room for all of us to move around in. beautiful bathroom with a great in bath shower and fantastic views. breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit, cereals, full english or fish if ordered the night before. we sneaked a look at the twin room on the floor below which was equally as nice. i have family in dawlish so only need to stay in a b&b occasionally, but when i do i will always try and book myself in here, worth every penny, superb.

Always read the reviews on Trip Advisor before booking and Dunluce House lived up to all expectations! On arrival the excellent hosts Bob and Josie offer you a cream tea at whatever time suits you. We had ours at 4pm in the garden and it was delicious!
We booked room 1 in the attic and it was big and beautiful. It had fantastic views across Dawlish to the sea and also inland to the countryside. The seaside theme of the room was done well in a lovely blue and white and the bed was so soft we just sunk into it. Bathroom great but with an attic room you might have to watch your head at times!
Breakfast was at what time you requested and was delicious! Fry up great and I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for first time which I recommend. Bowl of fresh chopped fruit as well was lovely. Bob even asked how strong we wanted our coffee!
There's an Indian and Chinese restaurant in Dawlish and quite a few pubs nearby which also serve food. Also for more choice Teignmouth is only a 5 minute train ride away. After our meal out the iced water jug in our room on return was a godsend!
Josie will sort you out with any local info needed including local walks. Would recommend coastal walk to Teignmouth (3 miles) with a 'challenging' hill in the middle!
Bob and Josie have a terrific B&B going here and we hope to return one day. They feel like old friends already!

We booked this B&B because of the reviews on this website. It really is a super B&B and we totally agree with the other guests. Dunluce is beautifully decorated, very clean and the owners are very kind and considerate hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them including having iced water ready and waiting for us on returning from a night out. We felt very spoilt throughout the stay. Our room, the blue room, is just lovely. We will return to Dawlish and to this B&B. Next visit will include a bike ride and a walk to Teignmouth - perhaps even a shopping trip to Exeter - by train.

We stayed at Dunluce House last year and enjoyed it so much that we returned again this year for a week and took friends with us.
Bob & Josie go that extra mile to make your stay so enjoyable. Their advice on places of interest to visit, local retaurants and local travel was excellent.
The rooms are well presented, clean and comfortable and there is a good and varied choice for breakfast to suit all tastes.
We have already booked to go back again.

Selected Dunluce House purely by chance - we were going to a family christening in Teignmouth and, coming from London and not knowing the area, decided on Dawlish to stay overnight for 2 nights. What a fantastic result we had with Dunluce House! Josie and Bob were excellent hosts, our room was clean and comfortable, en-suite well equipped - and what a power shower! Also, how refreshing to be asked 'what time would you like breakfast? instead of the usual comment that 'breakfast is between 7.30 and 9.00a.m.! And what a breakfast it was too. Would definitely recommend this - we are also thinking about another visit to Dawlish just to stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are the largest with sea views.
