First the good bits. Excellent location - about as central as you can get in Dartmouth. I guess this would be the justification for the rate charged. Breakfast was excellent and hosts very friendly. The parking permit came in very handy as you can also use it in selected car park around the Hams council area.
However, the decor is very dated and a little shabby. Carpets are lumpy and feel like a trip hazard every time you walk on them. As mentioned in previous reviews room 2 - which we were in - has the double whammy of a combi-boiler providing water for the whole house siwtching on and off constantly, and a window overlooking the pub next door which provides a constant stream of foul-mouthed regulars cussing at full volume with their fag smoke drifting up into the room. Room was a double. Very small so cases and bags had to be stowed under the bed. Also disliked the fact that fresh towels were left on top of the toilet lid - eeeeuuuuw!
But the bit we really disliked was the communal dining table at breakfast. Sorry if this makes us sound like bad people, but we really value our privacy and simply don't like sharing the start of our day with total strangers however friendly they might be. Nowhere on their various website adverts are there pictures or mentions of this feature. Had this been prominent we would never have booked in the first place.
This B&B might be OK for some but there's no way we could recommend it - sorry.
Very central location. Parking permit available for town centre car park at minimal cost. Older property, room was small but nicely refurbished. Shower room tiny.
Did not have breakfast.
Good value for money.
Wi-fi available but very slow!
My wife and I stayed here recently as part of a birthday treat. Whilst our room was not the largest, it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location is ideal, being just minutes from the river and the ferries. We were warmly greeted by Geoff the owner and he was only too happy to pass on information regarding the area. For a very pleasant stay, close to all amenities, you won't go far wrong.
We just spent the weekend in Dartmouth and this really is a cosy retreat and the perfect location in central Dartmouth but tucked away in a quiet spot in walking distance of great pubs (next door but no noise) and lots of restaurants and cafes. The room was cosy and perfect for us, the property is a real treat and Geoff was extremely welcoming and even found the perfect parking space right outside. We will definitely be back.
Lovely quirky little b&b in the centre of Dartmouth well situated for all shops and restaurants and waterfront. Yes, the hall/staircase are narrow and rooms on the small side but that made it all the more cosy. We were in room 1 for 3 nights and we loved it.
Friendly owner too who has been running it as a b&b for 20 years with his wife. As a b&b owner myself - don't know how they've managed to do it for so long - as it's a demanding job as your home is not your own.
Our booking.com rate didn't include breakfast but it was available at extra cost but there were some great All Day breakfast cafés nearby.
A handy keypad system meant you could come and go as you liked during your stay..
So would definitely recommend and would stay again as Dartmouth is a fabulous place and didnt have time to explore properly as we were at a Wedding during the weekend.
