Conveniently situated near to rail station and bus routes enabling us to travel all over south Devon. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was to much trouble. Our twin room overlooked a park and was quiet, well decorated and comfortable. Everywhere was very clean. The breakfasts were superb. We recommend it as very good value in every respect and will no doubt look forward to a return visit.
