loved our stay. cosy cottage.nice touch with wine on arrival

September 2018

We had a lovely time as the location is what makes this property and we wanted to be in the middle of Totnes. However the lack of dedicated parking detracts and is a constant worry. We wonder if the owner could make an arrangement with the Steam Packet pub opposite? They may be willing.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Boat Room. Thank you for your valuable feedback which we have passed onto the owner, she is actually currently looking into possible parking spaces for the apartment and is hopeful to alleviate this some time in the future. We hope to welcome you back to The Boat Room soon.

Lovely cosy apartment. Well equipped. Enjoyed our stay. Owner very kindly check ed to see if we were happy. Was nicely situated opposite lovely pub that had an excellent restaurant and catered for my non gluten requirements. We even had entertainment as carnival went by the house and the pub had Morris dancers in for an evening. But really quiet mostly and picturesque to walk by the river opposite.

The boat room was a lovey holiday apartment in a beautiful river location. Nicely thought out and very well stocked for a weekend away (or longer). The bottle of wine and jug of milk in the fridge was very welcoming and the information pack detailing dog friendly beaches was handy. It was my first trip to Totnes and to the Boat room and it won’t be the last, very much looking forward to returning for anther visit to both very soon.

We had a lovely time and enjoyed staying in this accommodation, we had a restful and relaxing break and would recommend the property. We did have a problem and it wasn't the fault of the owner, the parking situation around Totnes wasn't very good we made an inquiry of the local county borough council for a weekly parking permit and the cost was £40 which rather surprised us, perhaps the price for rentals in this area should take this into consideration.

Delighted that you had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Yes, weekly parking charges down here are around £40.00 for the week, but that also entitles you to park in all the South Hams car parks during your stay.
