The location of the guest house was excellent and the accommodation was very clean and tidy. However, on arrival I noticed that there was only one toilet roll given which we soon ran out of. I raided a spare toilet on the landing for more which was not even a full roll. I requested more at breakfast and only one...

Thank you for your comments. Putting things into perspecive the booking for you and your daughter was for 2 nights not a week or a fortnight. I am sorry that your daughter had a tummy bug which was not immediately apparent as nothing was said by either you or your daughter especially when coming down for breakfast on the first...

What a wonderful surprise to find a B&B to this standard. Family and friends know that I am 'a bit of a hotel-horror' and generally won't stay anywhere below a 4*. On this occasion we needed to be in this exact location therefore, after it being recommended locally, I booked the Old Coffee House B&B. We couldn't have asked for...

I was incredibly impressed with the Old Coffee house. Set in a very historic part of Ashburton opposite a traditional Norman period inn from the 1130s, the Old Coffee House has a wonderful character, feeling equally traditional and homely. My room was very comfortable and whilst furnished in a modern style had some great historical pictures (including an old Lifebuoy...

Stayed at the Old Coffee House in Ashburton from March 29-April 2 2016. Fantastic location within Ashburton and clean as a whistle. We stayed on the top floor in the room with two twin beds. Beds were comfortable. Car part is about a 2 minute walk away and only about 3 pounds per night. Located right at the entrance to...

Being a solo traveller, you do tend to find that single rooms are often a converted box room, not so in this case. The room was spacious, light and comfortable. Being right in town, all the towns amenities were in a comfortable, flat, walking distance, so another plus point there. Breakfast was good. I recommend The Old Coffee House to...

I come and stay here once a month and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners - Julia & Clive - are just a delight and the breakfast (especially the bacon) is second to none. The village of Ashburton is right on the edge of Dartmoor so it's a 5 min drive (or 20 min cycle uphill) and you're...

My sincere apologies to the owners for taking to long to review this place! The stay was very pleasant, room spotless, owners very nice, breakfast lovely, great location and it was excellent value for money. Couldn't recommend this enough. This will be the first place we look at when we are back down in the area.

We had the good fortune to stay with Julia and Clive on June 6th and 7th 2014. The 4 of us really enjoyed being guests in this quirky, wonderful old building in the heart of Ashburton and next to one of Englands most beautiful churches. The rooms were spacious and more than adequate, and excellent value, the breakfast first class,...
