“More than just a B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

4 of us spent 2 nights staying at Syon House whilst exploring the area and attending a coastline foraging course in Budleigh Salterton. Syon House was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. A truly peaceful retreat with far reaching views down to the coast. The house is vast and very well appointed. The rooms are large with extremely comfortable beds and modern bathrooms (we only had a shower and no bath). Breakfast was delicious. A real treat. Staff friendly and helpful but leave you to enjoy the property. We'll be back!!

We have just arrived home from a wonderful stay at Syon House. We travelled down south for a friends wedding and decided to stay here. We stay at many hotels around the UK and were instantly attracted to the images and reviews of this bed and breakfast.

We couldn't be more pleased with our choice as not only was the room so comfortable, the rest of the building was very impressive with a luxurious lounge and a sunny conservatory for our delicious full English breakfast.

Claire made us feel very welcome and our only regret is we couldn't stay longer.

We will definitely return to Syon House.

One of the best B&Bs I have stayed in. Period..
Really comfy bed. Excellent, modern bathroom facilities. Very quiet house - absolute peace guaranteed !!
Outstandingly good breakfast made with care from high quality ingredients.
Nice location with great views. Excellent / spacious lounge for use of guests.
All rooms recently decorated and in immaculate good order.
Charming and attentive hostess.
What more could one ask of any B&B ?

Just visited for one night, but would go again if in the area. Very warm welcome, room 'cosy' but very comfortable, extra pillows, lovely bathroom and accessories. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Spacious lounge with great squashy chairs and sofas, great countryside views.

We used Syon House as a base for a wedding we attended nearby. The room was light airy and the view was amazing!. Bathroom was clean spacious and the towels were great!. Unusually no curtains, but the blinds were an alternative substitute. The bed was really comfortable and the refreshments more than adequate. The grounds were lovely, and the tasty breakfast was served by friendly staff. The parrots were rather noisy, but we really enjoyed out very short stay and would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

Beautiful building and location, great room, if a little small with exceptional bathroom. Great decor, quality linen and towels. Breakfast menu was really good and the food lived up to expectations....Ideal base to explore this part of Devon.....
