Booked this very last minute. We were really struggling to find any accomodation in Devon that had 2 rooms (1 a family room) available. Morningside were very helpful, they looked at how they could rearrange bookings to accommodate us for 3nights. Our rooms were very comfortable & spacious, with a sea view, (though it was a limited view, very comfy... More

It is 2 years since our last visit but the standard of all amenities have not slipped. Due to health reasons we had a ground floor room overlooking the car park but the facilities were just as good as the sea view rooms we had previously occupied. Breakfast was first class and the selection of snacks and drinks available during... More

Travelling with elderly parents we asked for ground floor rooms. Lovely view over babbacombe downs to the sea. Two minutes to the cliff railway & cafe. Hanbury's fish & chips round the corner.Beautiful big rooms and refurbished bathroom with walk in shower. Small additions would have made it perfect - two squashy armchairs for the parents so they didn't fight... More

Stayed 6/6/14 - 9/6/14 for the third time. Excellent accomodation, top class breakfasts looking out over Lyme Bay and lovely hosts ensures that I and my family will return time and again when visiting Babbacombe.

The staff were all very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We had... More

Just returned from a weekend stay celebrating a family birthday. We all had a fantastic time. The food was excellent as was the accommodation. The hotel is really lovely, warm and homely and very clean. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Child friendly too. Thank you John Paul for looking after us all so well and for catering... More
