We don't do a lot of B&B stopovers and so, can't claim to know what to expect. However it can be said that our experience at Coombe Bank was a mixed experience. The landlord was friendly, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good and plenty. On the down side.... The bathroom was very compact and there was no...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry it was not perfect for you and apologise for the cold water tap not working which was not the case when the previous guests left. The problem was straightforward for a plumber as it was water in the mechanics of the tap resulting with the system unable to open. It took 10...

A very comfortable stay, the bedroom was clean and tidy and had all the facilities that you require. The bathroom was particularly compact but was very clean and functional. Breakfast was very good with a choice of fresh and cooked food and was served promptly and freshly cooked. The Guest House is a fair distance from the promenade and town...

Thanks for your kind words and note the humour is still there. We hope it was not too difficult to fit Coombe and Bank into the review but made us smile. Regrettably the house is not purpose built and the bathrooms were put in 20 years or so ago when previously it had 7 letting rooms with one bathroom and...

Our two night stay was most comfortable. Bedroom was nicely decorated and everything was clean and up together. Bathroom was well appointed. Breakfast was delicious with good choices of cereal,fruit and cooked dishes. Nothing too much trouble to provide special dishes for my husband who is dairy intolerant. Owner friendly and welcoming. All in all a good find. I will...

Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are glad you had a lovely time with us. Our road is still basically a country lane and not wide enough for paving and it is regrettable that a few motorists ignore the 20 mph speed limit. If we were not on a slight incline the views from the...

Booked at very last minute on the way to sidmouth and was fortunate enough to get the last room only due to the fact that someone had to leave prematurely.

Thanks for you review, The room you stayed in is the last we let out as it is the smallest and having to put the bathroom (even though small) in a 1928 building not designed for en suites has all the required features for a good nights sleep as we know because we stayed in this room before buying Coombe...
