We came here for our silver wedding. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was great and the Celtic Night was great fun! For a city break you would really lover staying here, the location and ambience was brilliant.

This is a very clean and cosy B&B,rooms are excellent with a small fridge with fresh milk,microwave and TV and plenty of tea/coffee for you.Bed could due with a new mattress as it was lumpy and uncomfortable,there was a good selection of cereals for breakfast with croissants/toast etc. Our only gripe was the hot food,bacon eggs etc was disappointing.

Hi The mattresses are under a year old, but mattress type is a personal choice. We state that we do not provide cooked breakfasts. However, as it was the weekend, we had quite a number of guests, and guests sometimes say they would have liked a cooked breakfast, we added cooked items to the buffet. I believe these guests arrived...

Despite a very late arrival after a ferry crossing from Brittany we were welcomed by the owner of the hotel and given advice regarding the use of the television and WiFi and the security pad system. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast provided a vast choice of cereals as well as fruit, yogurt, crispy...

There wasn't much of a sign to find the b&b but the place was clean, warm and welcoming. The room was large with plenty of ameneties, including a microwave and generous size fridge. Everything was well set out and would suit all kinds of travellers or contractors. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely return.

We stayed here during August 2013. The welcome was warm and friendly. Overall house and decor was good. Nice large bedroom and bathroom. Tea and coffee and cake / biscuit available on arrival. A somewhat different breakfast arrangement, but very very good. The local pub restaurant will pick you up and return you back if you want a drink and...

the lady who runs the Arlington, Dianna, was very accommodating and although she wasn't there when we arrived we had expected that as she called us several times before we arrived to make sure everything was OK, and she had made arrangements for us to get access to the rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious, breakfast was self service,...

The lady who runs this B&B is friendly. The rooms in which we have stayed have always been clean. The style varies between different rooms. Most of the time, we have had self-service breakfast on our own - there is a wide selection of different items, including cereal, fruit juice, baked beans, flapjack and, often, delicious freshly baked scones. Wifi...

You do not need a car (although useful, if you go on the M5)! We have a frequent (twenty minute) bus service to Cullompton/Tiverton and Exeter. The restaurant will collect and return you for no charge. We generally leave the toiletries per person; this incident was human error, for which we apologised and repleced, when the guest mentioned the deficiency...

There was nobody anywhere in sight when we arrived and I honestly thought we must have been at the wrong house as I missed the sign on the main road with the name of the B and B. There was no cars in the car park and a large broken pot plant holder and a pile of gravel in front...

I am afraid that this guest must have arrived early, as I met them at the door at check in time unaware that they had arrived any earlier, because I was feeding the livestock. Hence, I gave no apologies! The post it note was for someone else. The other guests were out, so there were no other cars. I am...

Nice and friendly welcome,good clean and spacious rooms. Nothing more to add really as the other (good) reviews have just about got it covered. The short journey for the evening meal was no problem as we took advantage of their free taxi service.We stayed for one night while working in the area and found it ideal for our purpose.
