What a fabulous stay!! Location, location, location. Weather was awful but kept dry as the Seahorse is quite literally next door. Great food, comfy bed, highly recommended. J and V

J and V,

Great location, central to all the amenities. Places to go in Dartmouth that are really great is Rockfish Restaurant, Alf's Cafe is good for breakfast. Ferry to Totnes is brilliant. So many places to recommend! A very successful trip and we will definitely be back.
