Quirky and Comfortable

Having read some good and bad reviews on the B&B decided to give it a go.

Yes there was a musty smell when entering, the stairs and passageways were quite dark and there wasn't a straight wall (or floor) in the place. However I found it clean and comfortable, plenty of parking, the owner pleasant and several places to eat within easy walking distance. It is not a Hilton or Premier Inn but it does have character and is a fraction of the price

Excellent value & handy location on several bus routes including late bus from Sidmouth.

Great base for a walking trip.

One night's stay at southern cross

Whilst the outside of the building looked quaint with its thatched roof, on entering the building there was an unpleasant smell and the lounge area looked dark, dingy and most unwelcoming.

The bedroom was dark and bed linen did not appear clean as stain marks were visible. The ensuite arrangement was a little odd. A lot more attention to detail is definitely required. Compared to B&B places we have stayed before, this was definitely below standard and therefore expensive by comparison. We were so glad we were booked in for just the one night.
