Great Location

Posted 17-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
WE enjoyed a really excellent stay at Riverdown. The standard of the accommodation was very good. The owner was very helpful in providing advice as to where to visit in the locality as well as helping with restaurants in the area. All in all, an excellent stay. We would certainly book again when we are next in the area

Perfect for walking, Friendly Hosts, Superb Room

Posted 12-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed 1 night on Wed 5 June 2013, and arrived just after 2pm (NOTE: some online booking websites are displaying the wrong Check-In time. Actually Check-In Time is 4.30pm). As per other reviews Jan & Tim are welcoming and the ensuite room was perfect. Breakfast was perfect for us, cooked breakfast with choice of cereals, drinks, choice of breads for toasting yourself to your own liking and choice of spreads & jams. Jan was very helpful on where we could walk to watch wading birds, and we ended up walking all the way to Exmouth following the River Exe and the railway line. We got on the Exmouth to Exton train @£2.60 and was bemused that we had to ask the conductor to stop at Exton (else it would drive pass). That evening we did hear the last train go pass the B&B (and the early morning trains), it's so brief that it didn't bother us much. Us living near LHR and in a street full of noisy neighbours slamming car / front doors, we had a more peaceful night's sleep than at home!! We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely stay at Riverdown B&B again.

Exemplary B&B

Posted 03-May-2013 on Hotels.com
I was very impressed by Riverside B&B - it offered everything that I expected and the rooms and facilities were absolutely spotless. Tim and Jan were very welcoming and put on a lovely breakfast. I give everything a 5/5 rating except location - not because there is anything specifically bad about this however you will need your own transport to get there. As it's close to the River Exe you'll love it if you want to relax away from busy people rushing around.

Brilliant stay - like in parent's house. :-)

Posted 23-Nov-2012 on Hotels.com
It was brilliant stay for me - I booked it via Hotels.com application on my mobile and arrived to it 3 hours after booking - the room was ready for me 100% and hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Bedroom is great - large and warm. Bathroom has a powershower - just brilliant! Everything is new and modern. Breakfast was very nice - good choice and excellent quality. Location - middle of nowhere, but with massive 24 hour Tesco within 5-7 minutes driving. Thanks hosts for my great stay! Recommend 100%.

Bed and breakfast in a lovely home

Posted 26-Oct-2012
Pros: The home, its furnishings and the people were great.
Cons: I had a GPS device in my car and it was still difficult to find the place. It is located near the end of a narrow, unlit, paved road.
This bed and breakfast is located on the first floor of an absolutely lovely home. The rooms, the home and the neighboring homes are among the nicest you will find. You need to share a bathroom with other guests, but the bathroom facilities will be among the best you have ever experienced. The husband and wife owners were very nice and breakfast was excellent. You have the feeling that you are actually a friend of the family. I am a light sleeper and a commuter rail service ran nearby, but it was not a problem.

Weekend stay

Posted 04-Jul-2012 on Hotels.com
Great host, amazing setting and only 5-10 mins off the m5. Very clean, good breakfast. Great local knowledge and suggestions of where to visit. Exeter and Topsham are great places to visit. Fully recommend.
