Loved this Hotel. The towels smelt great and the hotel was clean. Excellent customer service with a genuine interest in their guests. Location was out standing with iconic train Station, local pub next door and within walking distant to the Dawlish township. Thank you so much for a pleasant stay Rick and Allison considering this will not be our last.

Great seaside B&B

Pros: We liked its proximity to the sea and its contribution to the colours of the Dawlish seafront. The triple room was spacious. Great double glazing.
Cons: We understand that the place is gradually being refurbished - so noted that the carpet and fridge need replacement in our room.
Had a great two nights in the High Tide studio triple room. Ali & Rick were both enthusiastically warm and welcoming - couldn't do enough to help or offer it! Great work Rick with the breakfast deliveries up the stairs - that was a treat that we hadn't expected (should have read the website better). Thanks to Ali for local recommendations. It was a great place to access a piece of the English Riviera, see the Dawlish sandstone and see the Dawlish black swans (strange to see them out of Western Australia).
