Stayed here for a few days with my husband and daughter. Room and shower room reasonable size and immaculately clean. Hosts very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast excellent and great choice. Great location easy walking distance - near sea front and Abbey. Would recommend.

We have just returned from a wonderful five day break in Devon and spent three nights at this gem of a small hotel close to Torre Abbey It is about a ten to fifteen minute walk into town and you can walk through the abbey grounds. We received a very warm welcome from the landlady and everything about our stay... More

My family and I stayed at this guesthouse for a couple of nights. The rooms were spotless and the hosts were extremely friendly and jovial. We were cooked a hot vegetarian breakfast as we requested. We would definately recommend this guesthouse as a great value place to stay in Torquay especially in the peak season.
