Positive Reviews

Appealing location

Guests find the location of the Sea Trout Inn appealing, mentioning how it is situated in a quiet village yet places you within a ten-minute drive of Totnes and the Dartmoor National Park. Also of note, the property is within easy reach of popular destinations along the coast, such as Paignton and Torquay.

Good quality rooms

Feedback from previous guests suggests that the standard of the rooms here is consistently impressive. Rooms are often described as immaculate or, at the very least, clean and cosy. A couple of guests found the decor a little dated but typically not so much that it impacted their enjoyment of the room.

Great food

Breakfast at this inn is highly rated, as are the lunch and dinner services. Guests find the food is plentiful, cooked to perfection and, above all, reasonably priced. Guests also enjoy the themed nights and the option to dine outside on the terrace. Perhaps the only negative is that it can get really busy.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi may disappoint

Reviews of the Sea Trout Inn often indicate that guests find the Wi-Fi is disappointing. Some were able to access the service but describe it as slow and prone to disconnecting. Others were unable to get online at all due to a complete absence of a signal in their allocated room.

Overstretched staff

Although guests find the staff is welcoming and friendly, they do appear to be overstretched at times. This short-staffing issues can cause issues with slow service, especially at meal times.

Minor oversights

Guests point out a number of minor issues that would improve the experience here. Reported issues include no mat in the bath or shelf to store toiletries, small TVs in the rooms and little marmalade packets being used in place of quality jarred produce.
