Lovely, clean room, bed very comfy. Shower wasn't great but everything else was of very good standard. Cracking sea view! Didn't stay for breakfast or eat in the pub, so can't comment on the food. Staff were very friendly. Would stay again.

Clean room, cheerful staff, excellent breakfast, lovely view. What more do you need? We stayed for one night on route to another destination but met friends here and had an enjoyable evening meal. The staff were very helpful, earlyish check out time but that suited us. Would stay again when we come back to babbacombe.

Lovely clean and friendly hotel. Wonderful sea views from the bedroom. Friday Grill Night Special was excellent value, steak was cooked to perfection. Close to all amenities and easy to get into Torquay. Staff very friendly. Have already booked to go back again in June!!
