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 stars; 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.

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.
