Delighted Sheltering Cycle Tourers -
Booking last minute to avoid a sweeping storm, we were unsure as we made our way into Totnes. However, the Great Grubb B&B absolutely blew us away. Beautiful rooms, friendly owners, great location, and a breakfast we will remember;we both highly recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful overnight stay -
I booked into the Great Grubb, and was immediately given a very warm welcome, by the owners. The off road parking was ideal for me, as I was travelling by car. The Great Grubb accommodation was very clean, comfortable and cosy, so I had a great nights sleep. I always pack my sleep mask, and ear plugs, as there is always the odd sound of people coming and going, doors closing etc, as you would expect from any hotel/b&b. The powerful shower was an excellent way to start to my day. The breakfast room is beautiful airy and bright, which extends into the conservatory/sun lounge, and out into the patio garden;very calm, relaxing and tranquil. There is a good selection of meal options. I had the full English breakfast, with juice to start, freshly made coffee, and toast. It was absolutely delicious, and it set me up for my long journey home.The train station is not to far away, and the centre of Totnes is only a short stretch of the legs away, or you could take the short drive into town and park in one of the many pay and display car parks, or metered parking bays.I would definitely stay here again, and have no reservations in recommending this beautiful B&B to all of my friends, relatives, and acquaintances. Many thanks again for a lovely relaxing stay.

Perfect Location -
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.
Reviewer:Margaret B | Sun 23rd Sep 2018 | 10 months ago
Outstanding Stay -
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 -
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!!
