Reviewed 16 April 2012

I booked for 5 nights but found the room was so small and the bathroom was really cramped. No dining room or lounge so interaction with other guests was non existent. No wardrobe in the room just a hook behind the door and on the wall. Venetian blinds did not block out light. Breakfast on tray in room has to be booked night before as to time required. I asked for a refund which was denied, and I understood this as it was stated on the booking info but I was also told that should I find alterative accomodation then I had to move out, even though I had paid for the full 5 nights as it was "unfair to us" to have an unused room. I stayed elsewhere for 3 nights but did not "check out" as I felt the room was paid for and they could have met me halfway. I did not meet the owner. Room was clean, taps and bathroom fittings very mod but awkward as it was so small.. On quite steep hill to walk from town.

Some hours after arriving at my B&B you telephoned me on three seperate occasions complaining about the restricted width of the roads in Tavistock and the fact that you could not unfold the wing mirrors on your car, this was clearly a warning of what was to follow.
To expect public meeting areas and a restaurant in a four bedroom B&B, even with our high standards, is perhaps a little unrealistic.
All the bedrooms are of a size that comfortably accept king size beds and whilst you labour the point that breakfast is delivered on a tray you fail to mention the table and chairs in the room from which to enjoy the freshly prepared dishes of your choice. We also find that our regular guests are very happy to decide for themselves what they would like for breakfast and when they would like to eat it.
A refund under such circumstances is not possible and I unfortunately do not understand your ramblings about alternative accommodation and having to move out.

We stayed at the Rockmount for six nights whilst exploring surrounding area. Long enough to find a fault but there weren't any! Liz gave us a warm welcome even though we were VERY late in arriving. Our room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. Decor modern but not minimalist. Bathroom superb! We weren't sure about breakfast in room when booking but it was great. Table and chairs, plenty of room, good choice and always perfectly cooked and presented. We would not look elsewhere if returning to the area. Thank you Liz, for your helpful hosting and a very relaxed stay!

Check in / out was very simple and friendly service from the owner at all times. Room was very luxurious as well as the bathroom. Mod cons a plenty such as a Nespresso coffee machine and an extremely comfy bed. Breakfast served to your room at time convenient to you and excellent quality. Would definitely visit again and have recommended to many already. Great value for money and just a short walk into Town (2 mins)

The Rockmount was very comfortable, clean & friendly. Excellent facilites in the rom for coffee etc. Bathroom was lovely. Very unqiue in the fact you get breakfast served in your room but at a time suitable for you. Well worth an overnight stay & so close to the town centre.
