 Here’s what people are saying about our service:

“The Girls” know what they are doing!  5 of 5 stars; Reviewed by In-need-of-a-rest Devon, 5th Sep 2016

We arrived in Salcombe without a reservation for the night. We went into the Tourist Information Centre for inspiration. We were greeted with smiles and friendly hellos. “Debs” took us under her wing, gave us some information on B&B’s and we were sorted. I cant thank the girls enough, they were so helpful and knowledgeable. Salcombe’s Gems! 


Friendly and so helpful 5 of5; Reviewed by hollycottage Hampshire, England 27 July 2016

We ‘parked and rode’. The bus stopped outside the tourist information centre and so this was our first stop in beautiful Salcombe and we were very impressed. Everything was well laid out and the staff were friendly and knowledgable. A real asset to this busy seaside town.

Could not be more helpful 5 of5; Reviewed by Alfred1914 North Wales, England 27 July 2016

5 of 5 stars A big ‘Thank you’ to all members of the Information Centre. We were provided with lots of very useful information which made our day visit even better than we expected.

“Friendly and helpful staff” 5 of 5 stars; Reviewed by Janet W, 22 Sep 2015
Staff were well informed and helpful – knew the area well and offered various suggestion of places to visit. It shows the valuable service they offer to a town that relies on tourism at a major income generator.

“Definitely worth a visit if you are new to Salcombe “ 5 of 5 stars; Reviewed by Joanne D, 17 Aug 2015
This is our first visit to Salcombe. We soon realised that there are so many things we can do here and so many options. We made the right decision to visit the centre. The staff at the centre were very friendly and happy to answer any questions. They seem genuinely enjoy being in the area and have done lots of the activities themselves, telling us how they liked puddleboarding themselves etc. We came away with a good idea of things / activities we would like to do next few days and were equipped with all relevant information.
