If you like somewhere that smells of wet dogs, allows dogs in the dining room, has beds with four inch mattresses that offer no support allowing you to feel the wooden slats in the devan base and doesn't offer you a cheery welcome on your arrival then this is the place for you.

We have never stayed anywhere that is so bad for many years, As someone who has spent many years travelling around the country and staying in B&B's large and small I have rarely come across somewhere this bad.

The stay got off to a bad start on our arrival, we waited in the bar for four or five minutes to be greeted with "oh people where did you come from", this following an earlier call to say we would be arriving between 9.30 and 10.30 pm on a Friday night. We were shown reluctantly to our room by someone who said he had never done it before. He did tell or show us where breakfast was served or offer to carry our bags.

The rooms are relatively clean although when it was serviced the shower tray was not cleaned, The extractor fan in the bathroom had not been cleaned for months the switch that turned on the extractor fan had to be played with to get it to work.

There was a stain on the sheet at the top of the bed

A dog was allowed into the restaurant part of the pub at breakfast time and was seen to eat out of a breakfast bowl. I thought the law was quite clear on dogs being in public eating places unless they were guide dogs, this didn't seem to bother the owners as their dogs seemed to freely roam the building without much control.

The pricing did not match the quality offered as we had stayed in the area a few weeks previous at a much more realistic price where our bags had been carried to our room and where we were given a really cheery welcome.

Our strong recommendation is that you stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: stay in Dartmouth it's only another four miles away

A very relaxing four nights at this friendly family hotel. Excellent en suite room with river views. Good food and atmospheric bar used by locals. It does not pretend to be the Ritz but does offer delightful informal relaxing surroundings which are child and dog friendly. All staff were really helpful and made our stay great. We will most definitely return.

We have now stayed on many occasions and have enjoyed everyone of them, Staff are great and are always up for a bit of good banter, all our needs have always been met, including modifications to their very nice varied menu.
Rooms are very pleasnt,well equiped and always spotless, our last stay was during the very cold spell , what a pleasure to walk into a room with the heating on full when we arrived.
For a nice pint in the evening , this is a real traditional English Pub,no jukebox , no bandits , no background music just conversation.
Good location,great views, safe car park.
Will not add any more as I would like to be able to book in next time and not finf it totally booked

Just loved our stay here, Brigitte,Penny and Clive looked after us all so very well,
our Bedroom were smashing with lovely views of the River Dart, plenty on offer for breakfast and delicious evening meals. This is truly a very friendly place to stay, we were made extremely welcome, very relaxed atmosphere. Brilliant having the Village shop and post office on site, makes for a good community. If you like friendly places and you like walking, sailing of course (for sailors, great place for brekkies & a Bath)wildlife spotting and Dogs.This is the place for you!!! We will all be back.Jules & Peter Ashley,Hampshire.
