Thank you for your review. Not sure why there was a white bread shortage. Our staff would have only been too happy to top the basket up. There are two toasters, one is slower and one is brand new. Hope to see you again.

We were looking for a place on the eastern side of Dartmoor. Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we picked the Cromwell Arms and were happy that we did. Room 9 on the top floor is advertised as not recommended for the elderly. At 77, I don't consider myself too elderly, and we wanted the kingsized bed so that was our choice....

This Pub offers an excellent location for exploring Dartmoor and provides comfortable accommodation with good food and secure parking. The rooms are clean and the breakfast choice, although limited in options, is well cooked and the Bar food is very good Great location for Dartmoor and walking from the Town itself

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Cromwell now on two separate occasions with my work colleagues and must say I highly recommend it here. The service, food, accommodation and all staff made myself and the lads stay very enjoyable and comfortable. We will be going back next month and look forward to it 👍

We stayed for one night on the Friday of August bank holiday having stayed in Tintagel and being en route to Torquay. The room was pleasant. However no proper hairdryer just one of those useless bathroom jobs. It was sweltering hot so we were grateful for the fan that we found in the cupboard. Staff were friendly. Nice pub garden....

With Exeter, Plymouth and Newton Abbot easily accessible from here and being only 10 miles away from the sea, our location is an ideal stop over for a business trip, a weekend break or for longer staying guests holidaying in sunny Devon. The 17th century oak beamed coaching inn is a family run award winning* establishment in the heart of the town and offers 14 tastefully,comfortable en-suite bedrooms. One of which is a family room that can sleep up to 6 people comfortably. We have Wifi throughout the main building, a lawned beer garden with a pagoda and decking for those warm sunny days and two log fires to warm you on those cosy winter nights. We even have some chickens to say hello to! So, whether you are on holiday, on business or just passing through, a visit here is highly recommended. Dogs are welcome to stay too.
