Stayed at this Hotel for four nights, (in Four Poster). From the outset made to feel extremely welcome. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. We had one small problem on first night, which when reported following morning was dealt with immediately. Breakfast was delicious (even to the fact that likes and dislikes were remembered without further... More

My husband and I took a short trip to Torquay. Stayed 3 nights at the Westbank. We arrived a little early, so our room was not ready. The owners let us put our luggage in the lounge, and then offered us coffee and biscuits. They were so friendly and welcoming. Very nice. The room, although small, was well equipped. It... More

What a wonderful find this place is, Andre and Apinya are both very welcoming and friendly, the room was spotless and the little extra touches like shower gel and shampoo were a lovely surprise. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tailored to our particular tastes. We would not hesitate to recommend this little gem. Su & John Sedgley Bridgwater

Wonderful welcome with coffee and cake to restore our energy after a long day travelling down to Torquay. Spacious, comfortable bedroom; extensive, lovely breakfast. Very attentive and chatty owners! Location within easy walking distance of the centre. Parking a little tight on site, but no problems for us. Street parking available. Looking forward to returning again for a relaxing stay.... More

Stayed for two nights in this lovely B&B. Room was very clean and tidy. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was good, both the continental and english breakfast. Location of the B&B is great, on a quiet road, short walk away from the beach and the town centre.
