Our 3rd stay here and longest yet and we weren't disappointed. Lloyd and Christine excelled themselves along with the 2 girls yet again. Certainly helped to make our holiday perfect even providing information on the annual orange race at nearby Totnes which we took part and thoroughly enjoyed. On our final day we had some friends join us for breakfast...

Thank you for being lovely guests and returning time and again. I thought you might be enamoured of the orange race in Totnes - being an unusual event and bit quirky. There is so much to do round here isn't there? Not just in the English Riviera but in Totnes, Dartmouth and Dartmoor and further down the coast. Glad you...

Stayed here when I was a child and it still has the same feeling of home from home. A few changes like no gong (sorry Christine had to mention it!) and no lounge for guests but rooms now have tv's and there are DVDs to borrow which worked out great on our one rainy day. I wasn't able to slide...

Sliding down the bannisters indeed! However, you were a young child at the time - that was before Health and Safety of course! And that Fawlty Towers type gong - now perhaps that is something we should consider bringing back for breakfast times!!! (I think not -- guests are so more sophisticated now and nearly all have mobile phone alarms.....

My girlfriend and I have just stayed at Amber House for 5 nights and would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and its very friendly and helpful owners and staff to anyone. The hotel itself is pretty, well equiped, beautifully furnished and our room offered us a view of Goodrington Bay which was worth the money alone. The breakfast...

Excellent review - thank you so much. We think it is important to let guests have enough information to make decisions about planning their stay without having to trail into town and try and find the tourist information shop - which is only open shop hours anyway. IT sounds like you had a wonderful 5 days. Lloyd and I are...

I think our first review - many years ago - described us as a hidden gem - it's nice to know we are still making the grade! We've added a lot of little extras since then and are always open to suggestions for other items guest may find useful. We once did a feedback form asking guests about whether they...

This is our third stay and this time a smaller room. This is a top quality b&b and the owners think of everything. Perfect room, comfy bed, lovely en suite, super shower, delicious breakfast in airy dining room plus TV, WiFi - putting many 5 star hotels to shame. Small touches like a fridge with milk and go honesty box...

Your review is great - thank you so much. 3 times - but in the smaller room this time. Yes - we do have a wide range of rooms on offer - all individual - that's the beauty of staying somewhere like Amber House - you don't get the regulation cloned bedroom of some of the larger corporate establishments so...

Ha- the super-duper Agatha shower room has obviously pleased you. That little remote sensor light on the illuminated mirror is such good fun isn't it? I love showing guests it so I can have a play! And the extra large shower is proving a great hit with guests who also appreciate the extra large bed. Our own bed is a...
