Great breakfast, friendly B&B - Rating 5/5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Great Grubb - from the warm welcome to the tailor made cooked breakfast and super comfortable room everything was just perfect. I walked to the B&B from the station and it's also in a great location (though there's also plenty of parking) for easy access to town and countryside.

We had a lovely time at the Great Grubb. Sandra and John are perfect hosts, nothing too much trouble and an awesome breakfast to suit every taste. Ideal base for Totnes and surrounding area. You must go to Dartington Hall, especially the Gardens. Thank you guys!Hope the Gecko’s are behaving....

Perfect Location - Rating 5/5

Totnes was a place we wanted to return to. Chose this B&B for its proximity to town centre. We arrived early just hoping to park the car but were made very welcome and able to check in. The room was very comfortable and well co-ordinated. Everything you needed was available. The breakfast wss excellent and the coffee was good and strong. Will definately return if in Totnes again.

Outstanding Stay - Rating 5/5

From the warm welcome, through the well appointed room to the brilliant breakfast, given we are a regular B&B o/night stayer, this venue rated as one of the best we have stayed in. Had a great night's sleep and even the road didn't disturb as the double glazing did the job. Cannot recommend it enough and if/when in Totnes again, it will be our preferred choice

Suberb B&B in Totnes - Rating 5/5

I can't speak highly enough of The Great Grubb B&B.It's spotlessly clean and the owners are very friendly and welcoming.It's also quite good value.What I particularly liked was that there was no issue about me staying for one night in a single room on a Saturday - some B&B owners can barely conceal their contempt at such a request but not here!I was made to feel every bit as welcome as a couple staying for a week.I would have loved to stay for longer and am thinking of booking a longer stay there next year.The only comment I would make is that the room I had was in a part of the house with very little natural light (the house is situated on the side of a hill).The windows looked out onto (well maintained) passageways and a fire escape staircase.I know that some of the rooms at the B&B have lovely views and I'd have preferred a room with more natural light if I was staying longer (it was absolutely fine for one night).But that's just a small point.The bathroom had lovely modern fixtures and fittings and everything worked very efficiently although in rather a tight space!Overall a great weekend experience.The B&B is easy walking distance from the town and railway station - highly recommended!!
