This hostel was more like a hotel, it was bright, colourful, friendly, tasteful decor and very clean....also good value for money. The staff was cheerful and efficient... My partner and I loved it and will be staying there again. We can whole heartedly recommend it to anyone.

Have stayed here a couple of times. Always clean,bright and welcoming. Very convenient for all parts of Torquay and for main road access. Couples especially catered for. The garden cabins are surprisingly comfortable and cosy.

I visited here with two of my friends for a couple of nights, it's very basic but clean and bright and an excellent location just a five minute walk from the train station. Bring your own towels or you have to rent some, they also charge 50p to use the shower as previous guests were using them too long so... More

I have been to Torquay numerous times now and always return to Le Papillon. I love the cosy atmosphere that feels like a home away from home. Marga, the owner, and her staff are very friendly and helpful. It is impeccably clean and tidy and great value for money. Free fast wifi access and full self catering kitchen with everything...

My partner and I had the joy of staying 2 nights at "Le Papillion". We were put into one of the new garden cabins which certainly had the "WOW" factor, immaculately clean. It is a unique and very beautiful setting a stones throw from Torquay itself and offers travellers to the area a little bit of luxury for a fraction... More

We stayed in the bungalows in the garden. There are only two, and they provide privacy and a really nice setting for a couple. Sitting out are, log burner and bbq. The owner is very helpful, and the main building well equipped

We stayed at this hostal last weekend as a football tour group. Up on entering we knew we had to pay a £10 deposit to the owner/manager who was not impressed we had chosen her place to stay and said she does not take football groups which does not state that on hostel bookers. We then had to proceed and... More
