Excellent hotel with great friendly and efficient service. Can't fault the cleanliness and the modern décor. The breakfast is excellent with a wider than normal range of options. Yes, some of the other residents were older but that's probably true of Torquay generally and, quite frankly, they are probably much more interesting to talk to! My only minor niggle is... More

Great guest house as long as your over 80 as all the residents were ( seemed more like a home for the elderly) and if you don't mind a 30 min trek to the sea and want a tiny room with dated back to the 50s decor and want to wait an hour for a cold cooked breakfast then This... More

Having stayed in other so-called exceptional guest houses/hotels within Torquay the Berburry is in a class of its own. Everything you read in the brochure is 100% correct. Only regret other members of our family and friends were unable to take advantage of the hospitality of this truly superior holiday experience. Thank you Wyn, Jan and of course Stacey

Having stayed with Wyn and Jan a number of times and not previously left a TA report I decided it was time that I did. The Berburry is excellent value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Wyn and Jan are the friendliest and most welcoming hosts imaginable. We always book into the smallest room (the cosy room)... More

Beautifully decorated, immaculate with complimentary sweets (daily) and bottled water and beverages. The breakfasts and evening dinners were wonderfully cooked with a... More

We have just returned from a four night stay at this marvellous guest house. The decor and furnishings of the rooms are of a high standard but it's the food that is the real highlight, with excellent breakfasts and "five star" evening meals. They must use top quality suppliers, the food is cooked superbly and personally served by the genial... More

Arrived after a 5 hour drive and were shown to a room at the top of the stairs that every guest would have to walk past to get to their rooms. A double room with a three quarter bed, Really?
