Le Papillon is about a 10min walk from the beach and about a 20min walk from the town centre. We visited Torquay as five friends wanting to go away for five days without paying a fortune. We stayed in the five bed dorm made up from two sets of bunk beds and a single bed. The room was clean, bright... More

Stayed here in July. After staying at other places in Torquay, this is by far the best. We had such a lovely time. The whole place was immaculate. The Hostess was so welcoming and friendly, will definately be coming back and we couldn't recommend enough! :)

We are so happy we stayed here! My boyfriend and I are backpacking through Europe and decided to make a stop in Torquay. We found Le Papillon and couldn't be happier with our choice. Once we arrived the owner lead us straight to our room which was a private one. It was large, CLEAN, and vibrant! We spent 3 nights... More

24 singers/musicians stayed for the weekend and Marga made us feel so welcome. It was spotlessly clean, the cabins were lovely, the décor in the house was bright and cheerful and the garden was very pretty. Thank you Marga, we had a lovely time. I definitely recommend it.
