Only in for a one night stay as a treat away from kids and homelife, but would certainly go back again, ideally for a longer stay. Lovely detached building, with superb sea views and onsite parking. Room was of a very high standard, nice furniture, and although we were in one of the smaller rooms (7) the bathroom was enormous!... More

This was a small hotel, the room was excellent and would stay here again. The food and quality was exceptional for the price. If you could ask for room 5 you will have a lovely view over the bay. I will stay here again in the future.

I recently had 2 stays here and it was very comfortable, in a lovely location, friendly staff. I picked it due to its proximity to my mother and would have no hesitation about staying again. Good food in the dining room too. Spacious room, lovely sea views, tho I stayed in the cheaper back room as well and it was... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our short break at The Royal. Room 6 had stunning views across Babbacombe Bay and was a good size. Bed super comfy, shower a bit lacking in power, but still did the job! Very clean and all you could need except for a bedside alarm clock! We breakfasted each morning, which was again excellent. We ended up eating... More

We went to Torquay for a friend's wedding and booked Babbacombe Royal Hotel to stay over night. When we checked in we used the entrance through the bar, but at night because it was late we had our own key for private entrance to the rooms. Room was clean. Basic but all you would need. Modern en-suite but would recommend... More

Stayed for 1 night. The welcome was second to none, the room was of a very high standard. Breakfast was excellent as was the evening meal. I would highly recommend this small friendly hotel. We stumbled across this took a chance and didn't look back. Amazing views from our room also.

Very clean with beautiful scenic views but a poor shower experience as not enough water and a greasy breakfast with only a 30 minute slot to get served at breakfast time, with a little tweak could be a real gem
