Stayed here for two nights. Spotlessly clean, Pristine white towels, excellent hot breakfast, quiet location. On the down side. We did not find the bed very comfortable, and when we left our towels on the floor to be changed , they were just hung behind the door again, without changing. We were disappointed with that. A little background music in... More

Just come back from a weekend in Torquay. Couldn't have asked for a better bed and breakfast. Carl and Sharon are delightful hosts and very helpful if you need anything. Rooms are very clean and breakfast was beautiful. Highly recommended to anyone planning a trip to Torquay. Clair and Dom

I also found our hosts really welcoming and friendly and especially helpful when i asked for local recommendations. The Landlord stayed up way past his bed time when we arrived... More

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.
