Joe & Anne welcome you into their home with open arms, and provide good clean accommodation with a good breakfast in the morning. Our daughter settled in instantly and was sad when we had to tell her we had to leave to go back home, but that is the effect Joe, Anne & Torquay has on you. Thanks Anne and... More

The owners Anne and Joe took so much care of their guests; something you don't experience so often... you feel like a special guest! the room was small but very nicely decorated and very very clean! the breakfast was made with lots of care and special consideraton; definitively a place to recommend and to go back again

We booked here as a last minute thing as we couldnt get into our usual B&B. We were welcomed by a lovely, friendly couple, joe and anne. As the other reviews said the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable but not modern. CLeanliness is more important to us. The en-suite was small but practical and again spotless with a good...

My Colombian family and I recently had a chance to stay at this guest house and we were thoroughly impressed by service offered by Joe and Ann. The rooms were very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. It is in a nice location and it was a short distance to the center of town. Torquay is a nice place... More

Stayed for two nights. The room was spacious and comfortable, there was a good selection at breakfast and it was tasty, and the service was very attentive. The B&B is in close proximity to the town centre, as long as you're ready for a lot of steps down the hillside! We would definitely recommend the Whitburn and will likely be... More
