We stayed at the Abberley when we came down for the Devon Pottery Collectors Meeting at St. Anne's Hall Babbacombe on Sunday 23rd February. Jackie was really helpful and kind - pot of tea on arrival, super breakfasts - and she is interested in the steam railways, as we are - in addition to the local Torquay pottery. We shall... More

This is a lovely, friendly place to stay, very convenient for all attractions. Jackie is a superwoman, seeing to our every need. When she found out that it was our 25th anniversary, she left a bottle of red wine, 2 glasses and flowers in our room, how kind. Breakfast was really good.

We arrived late due to bad weather but a pot of tea welcomed us as soon as we arrived. The breakfast was superb beautifully cooked and we left with full bellies we... More

Going to a place I love (Torquay) means that everything has to be right, otherwise it spoils the whole time away. So returning to the Abberley is a must. When you arrive you are treated like an old friend, the kettles on, and you just feel at home. During my previous four stays here, I have got to know Jackie... More

We are a small family run guest house, and our other reviews say how friendly and helpful we are and they come from all age groups. I could understand the comment ‘worst hospitality ever’ if you were dumped in your room, it was dirty, bedding and towels not clean, and I ignored you every time I saw you; but I... More

I feel a little ashamed that I haven't written a review of this excellent guest house before. We have stayed at The Abberley Guest House many times over the years, and the first thing I must say is that the standard that Jackie has set has never diminished (if anything it has progressively improved) - it was brilliant the first...

Stayed here while on a walking holiday and greeted with a cup of tea and a warm welcome by landlady Jackie. Nothing was too much trouble - suggestions for the evening, a map and directions into town and probably the best breakfast of the 6 days we were on the coastal path. The Buccaneer pub on the seafront is a... More

What a great place to stay. Where do I start?... from the minute we arrived, we were greeted by Jackie who offered us a drink and then had a chat with us in the lounge. Jackie was really easy to talk to and gave us lots of information on the local area, the best routes to take to local amenities... More
