A great weekend away in a fabulous old hotel with great features and plenty of things to look at on the 4 floors and open staircase. No lifts so bear in mind for the less mobile including dogs, very dog friendly, dog beer and treats, dogs allowed in bar and restaurant. River facing room a must, 2 armchairs and a table great for watching the world go by. Bathroom facilities fab, big fluffy white towels including face cloths, Elemis products in the larger refill size so better fit the environment, rubber bath mat, cotton wool balls and plenty of shelves and room for your own products and wash bags. Overbath shower nice and powerful. Comfy bed and good pillows, nespresso coffee machine but only 3 pods of either normal coffee or decaffeinated, biscuits a let down from what we had in Cornwall St Austell Brewery hotel. Dyson hot and cold fan, we didn’t need it as radiators were fine if not a tad too warm during the night. Breakfast and dinner were served in a dining room on the first floor overlooking the river, both were good. If I had to find fault, it would be the dust on some of the surfaces in the bedroom and the head stains on the padded headboard but otherwise, I can definitely recommend.

Had the most amazing stay here. The friendliness and service from all the staff was second to none (shout out to Lina) and made for an incredibly comfortable stay. No ask was too much and the room itself was absolutely stunning. Would absolutely love to revisit again in the future.

Thank you so much for making my Mum feel just that little bit extra special during our two-night visit with you this week. I brought her down to Dartmouth for a couple of days to celebrate her 80th birthday and she had the most amazing time. Her first time at Dartmouth and I wanted her to experience what a special place it is. Your lovely hotel did not disappoint with amazing and friendly service and delicious Sunday roast and amazing breakfasts. I cannot fault the hotel at all. Our room was spotlessly clean. It is a beautiful 500-year-old building and overlooking the river at first light and last thing before dark was just so special and something I know will be a memory my Mum will treasure. And we saw the resident seal! I would highly recommend staying here and I will certainly be staying here again one day soon. We love Dartmouth. Thank you! x

Been to Dartmouth on holiday and visiting the Royal Castle was such a treat! The staff are some of the friendliest we have experienced for a while. They can’t do enough for you and seem genuinely interested in engaging with customers. To top it all off, lovely oldie worldie surroundings which are super cosy and food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the trio of fish but would have it with a side of bread to soak up all the lovely sauce!
