Very friendly staff and convenient location, but the smell of stale frying permeates up the stairs.

Brixham overnight stay
Not in the centre of Brixham, maybe our fault for not checking. Hotel little tired but very friendly and great service and breakfast. Evening food bit pricey but good. It was very busy in the evening so must have a good rep.

Don’t stop for breakfast if you are in a hurry!
I would have given this property a very high rating if we had not stopped for breakfast. Service was slow, especially for only five tables. (45 mins after we sat down before given anything to eat). Our table had not been cleaned/prepared after previous guests and their milk was left on the table for us. Breakfast was okay but sausages awful. All guests had had to wait. Seems ‘managers cook breakfast because chefs are not in until 10’. On the positive side. Staff when we checked in were welcoming and friendly. Room was spacious and clean and non-working ceiling fan was attended to immediately. Dinner was good, pub food.
