The owners were very attentive and keen to ensure we had a lovely stay. Its close to town and to the Tarka Trail/ coastal walks which makes it perfectly positioned for anyone wanting...

This was my third visit to Darnley, again the service was excellent as usual, both Sue and her Mum made me feel very welcome from the moment you ring the door bell. Excellent room, food and facilities. Highly recommended for any cyclists.

We've just returned from our week long holiday with our little boy and we couldn't have asked for better. Lovely, friendly and welcoming place. The cottage was perfect for us, lovely and cosy, clean and tidy without lots of clutter. We're already working out when we can head back! Thank you so much!

Fabulous Victorian hotel, within walking distance of the town and quay. Very peaceful and quiet with lovely grounds. We were on a cycle tour and there was undercover cycle parking, would certainly stay here again.

We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing week at Magnolia Cottage in the grounds of The Darnley Hotel. The cottage is basic, clean and comfortable, equipped with all we needed for our stay and its garden and wildlife is a delight - the squirrel gives non-stop entertainment!
