“B and B is the way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

Personal approach from the staff was definitely a winning approach to me. We arrived with complimentary tea and madiera cake from local bakery - which we loved after our trip. The room had free wifi a spacious bed, nice chairs, tv and bathroom. Everything you would expect. We had plenty of choices at breakfast and our full english was delicious. The facilities were good but the overall experience I rated at very good because of the friendly staff. It was also good value for money when you include breakfast and complimentary tea and cake. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Well where do we start....we honestly can't fault from the initial enquiry right through to leaving it was fantastic. We stayed 3 nights for the Grizzly 20 mile run and David and Sue couldn't do enough for us. They helped us immensely with our race before, during and after. This definitely made the weekend and we will never forget our stay there. We have taken some lovely memories with us so thank you very much. We ended up staying in room 6 which was absolutely beautiful. The beds were so comfortable and the room was spotless. We especially enjoyed sitting on the chairs with a hot drink and our chocolates with the fresh milk they had instead of UHT. Breakfast was delicious and they gave us invaluable information regarding places to eat and the local area. We definitely wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bay Tree House and we can't wait to come back again asap. It felt like home from home. Thank you so much for your hospitality David and Sue it meant so much to us. We will see you both soon.

Thank you for your super review - we really can't ask for a greater compliment than when guests say it felt like "home from home". It is lovely to read that you have taken away some good memories of your trip and thank you for your kind comments on the bedroom and the breakfast. It was a marvellous "Grizzly" weekend in Seaton and you both did so well, you must be very proud! We hope you will come back and visit us very soon at Bay Tree House. Best wishes from David & Sue

We had room 6 with a sea view, well, it was beautiful! (I have never rated anyone else this highly before); Not only was the view lovely but the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable, shower great, T.V. worked well and the table and chairs by the window were a nice touch, in fact the room seemed very new. Upon arrival David brought us up a piece of cake and a cup of tea which was gratefully received. Fresh milk was kept in a little fridge for all to enjoy, makes such a difference to the UHT milk, another really carefully thought out touch!
The breakfast was very nice, my Husband had haddock and poached egg for a change, I went for the full English. Yoghurts and cereals plentiful, but the homemade Marmalade was soooooo good! I even found myself using the teaspoon to eat the remainder of the marmalade from the dish, Well Done Sue!
David and Sue are very welcoming and do their upmost to make your stay as good and happy as possible. We will DEFINATELY return! A huge thank you to you both of you.

Dear MastMarion, thank you for your wonderful review and photos, it means so much to us when our guests take the time to write a review and when the feedback is as complimentary as yours we are bowled over. "The Best we have ever stayed in" is such an accolade - thank you so much.

We are so glad you found the bed comfortable and that you enjoyed the view, we are very lucky to be located so near the sea.

Thank you for all your kind comments on the cleanliness, the shower, the TV, the fresh milk (very popular!), the tea and locally made cake on arrival and the breakfasts. Not forgetting the marmalade of course - we are thrilled that you enjoyed it so much especially as we have never made preserves before!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Bay Tree House in the future, and in the meantime send you our best wishes. Kind regards from David & Sue.

We stayed at Bay Tree House on Saturday 15th February and it was a pleasure from start to finish. We were welcomed by Sue and David and having been upgraded to the best room in the house just because it was available - we were offered tea and fantastic freshly made cake. Little touches like this and the fact that instead of nasty UHT milk cartons there are fridges on the landings with fresh milk inside are what makes Bay Tree House so good. David and Sue are great people and can't do enough for their guests. Oh yes and the breakfast was fab too. Thanks to you both.

From the start I was impressed. We received a very warm welcome, offered tea AND cake within 5 minutes of being there and a very useful map of where was good to eat. The room was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable, I also really liked that we could have fresh milk instead of UHT and their attention to detail really showed. The breakfast was delicious, we were offered more tea and orange juice as soon as we were finished. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Sue and Dave for making our valentines day special :)

Hello Lrickard92 and WOW thank you very much for your fabulous review. With all our guests we endeavour to make their stay with us comfortable and home from home. Our cake from the local baker and the fresh milk has been so well received, we can't believe it. Our locally sourced breakfast foods are great for supporting the local trades and applauded by the guests. Thank you again for a fab review and look forward to seeing you again, maybe next valentine or why not sooner.

I would like to thank our lovely hosts for making my stay in storm battered Seaton so warm and welcoming. We only had one night but the lovely old house is a great place to stay and the breakfast on offer is second to none. Well done you are doing a great job.

Dear Chris, thank you so much for your kind comments and for taking the time to post a review. We are delighted that you found your stay "warm and welcoming" and that you enjoyed breakfast. As you say, Seaton had certainly felt the full force of the storm but we are pleased to report that the post-storm "clean up" has gone well and the town is returning to normal!

We are glad that you got home safely and we look forward to seeing you again one day at Bay Tree House! Kind regards from Dave & Sue.

-The accommodation was excellent
-Breakfast was delicious
-Sue and Dave were brilliant.
-The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable

We will definitely be back!
