We stayed at Abberley when we came to Torquay for the Devon Pottery collectors meeting on 12th July 2015. As we are helping to organize the meeting we have to bring lots of 'stuff' and Jackie is very helpful and keeps our food in the fridge, and finds somewhere to store all our pottery. Jackie is also very helpful giving... More

We booked at a very short notice and was lucky that Jackie had one more room left. Always being quite sceptical, we were not quite sure what to expect. This is the 1st B&B that we arrived at, and was greeted at the door in a most friendly and professional way. We felt so welcome before we even saw our... More

Stayed here at Christmas for 5 days while visiting daughter. The owner picked me up from the station on arrival and from then on nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean and comfortable breakfast was delicious and overall service could not be faulted. Would recommend without hesitation.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Owner very friendly accommodating and helpful without being intrusive. The room was very good too and clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was very tasty and cooked to order. Jackie was very helpful in helping us decide on a restaurant for the evening too. Ideal for a relaxing weekend break.

Stayed at this guest house for 1 night. Full marks for cleanliness. The owner runs it single handed and what a good job she does as well. From the minute we walked in she made us feel at home. She made us tea and spent time explaining to us where everything is and gave us written directions to places we... More

Stayed here August 2013. This guest house is in a nice quiet area, about 25 min walk to Torquay harbour if I remember correctly. We were given directions by the owner on arrival which clearly explained the route to take to get to town together with the optimal route to Babbacombe downs - we thought this was brilliant. There are... More

I've been lucky enough to stay in the Abberley on many occasions since my first visit here back in 2010. It never dissapoints. Jackie is a wonderful host. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are spotless and comfortable and the meals filling. The location is ideal. Not too far from the front. The shops at Babbacombe and Plainmoor.... More
