Greeted with tea and fruit bread after a long journey on busy bank holiday roads. Excellent and varied breakfast Comfortable room Very friendly owners
Homely Comfortable Very clean Warm friendly welcome by lovely couple Great breakfast
Jo and David - welcoming and charming Fantastic breakfast View Comfortable
Bed was a bit soft - personal choice
Loved the prize winning slice of chocolate cake on arrival. Home made food was very high quality, and the premises were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.
Lovely people, spotlessly clean, helpful, very good breakfast, couldn't do enough for us.
Had to drive to get dinner, which was very good, meant couldn't have a drink.
Welcome and tea and cake on arrival.
Everything; best breakfast, best room, best hosts, best cleanliness. Home-made bread, yoghurts, granola, scones, local sausages/bacon/eggs/devon cream. Best location, best views, best garden, best breakfast room (with amazing vine). Couldn't fault anything.
steep stairs to bedrooms having to move on!
Property was fantastic also very clean.Hosts were very friendly .Food 10/10.
Great relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, idyllic location, free wi-fi and top quality food.
We had a room with a separate bathroom, which was ok, but not if you needed to use it in the middle of the night!
The staff, room, location, breakfast, wifi etc all great.. It is simply the best bed and breakfast I was ever in
Very friendly. Good breakfast
Very welcoming and homely. So glad we found this little gem. Definitely recommend a stay here and we will go back again, hopefully!
We very much enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was comfortable and quiet with an excellent breakfast. Jo and Dave’s local knowledge helped us make the most of our short break in this lovely part of Devon.
nothing to dislike
David and Jo were the perfect hosts- a warm welcome with nothing being too much trouble. Lovely location and the house was immaculate! A home from home :-)
Just about everything,all you could ask for and a little bit more
It was wonderful in every respect, and we plan to return at the first opportunity.
car parking was easy the breakfast was excellent
if in future you do 2 nights bookings only this may not be convenient for us as we would just be travelling through
I can't think of anything that I would criticise. Warm friendly welcome by caring hosts. Attention to detail in all areas & lovely food. I would definitely recommend the Spinney to my friends.
Great location staff and rooms, very accomodating and helpfull. Gave poor on wi fi. As BT had crashed due to weather. Would recommend and stay again.
Just about everything. Lovely place, lovely room, lovely situation, lovely hosts, lovely food. Can't complain about anything.
Broadband rather slow - tried to watch a catch up show on TV which kept freezing. I suspect that isn't the owner's fault, probably a slow line in the country. And in all conscience it's not that important!
Nice hot shower, comfortable bed and lovely cooked breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again and would recommend to others.
There was nothing we found to dislike.
The staff were very friendly and the pub nearby was fantasic. excellent breakfast. Lovely stay.
We had a fantastic time even though the weather was a little unkind. Warm welcome with tea and homemade cake on arrival. Yummy!!! Comfortable bed and lovely cooked breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again and recommend to others. Thank you Jo and Dave.
