“One thing I omitted from my recent review - my failure to acknowledge how well you accommodated our sleeping needs by providing the sofa bed in the annexe. Thanks a lot for that. Sincerely, Howard Ashton”
“My wife and I found the Sea Trout Inn a very pleasant and convenient place to stay for three nights on a B& B basis while visiting family in Diptford.We were in the annexe, which served our purposes very well. We did get some noise - some loud - seemingly from somewhere in the heating system, and this needs to be attended to. But generally, this is a peaceful locationwith ample parking, not far from the River Dart, and within easy reach of Totnes.Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The meals were good and well presented. Breakfast could have been hotter and on a warmer plate, but my wife thought the porridge was excellent! Those on a budget should take note that Thursday night is fish & chip night at the Trout, when two come for the usual price of one. I would suggest that this offer be made available all week and be extended to cover all meals! I have to add that I thought the price of a dessert was well over the top at almost £7.00.Consideration should be given to extending breakfast times to 10.00 am. The 9.15 finish is far too early for those on vacation.Would we want to come again? Quite likely. My wife would have no hesitation, but that\'s because she spends more freely than me, and is not so insistent upon good value for money as I am. Maybe we can come again in low season, when hopefully, accommodation prices - if not the meals (except on Thursday!) - are more affordable.Would I recommend the Trout? Yes, I suppose I would because it has a lot going for it, although those on a budget may well feel the need to shop around.I trust my review will prove helpful.Yours sincerely, Howard Ashton”
