My husband and I stayed at the Babbacombe Bay Hotel for one night on Friday 3rd April. We were initially disappointed as we thought the hotel had resident parking, but that was a mistake on my part for assuming and not reading the hotel details properly. Although when you pay £155 for one night b&b I don't think it's unreasonable... More

Felt right from the moment we arrived. Wanted somewhere special as wedding anniversary, and this certainly ticked the box. Lovely decor with nice touches, with the Lyme suite overlooking the sea a must. Staff couldn't have been friendlier with nothing too much trouble. Coffee shop and bistro well worth a visit. Great atmosphere for a nice coffee with a wide... More

Was looking for somewhere to have tea and cake at about 7pm. Although the cafe converts to a bistro frpm 6pm for evening menus and you are advised to pre book , the waiters, Patrick and Matt, were excellent and found us a table and allowed us to just have coffee and caramel shortbread, which was delicious. They were so... More

We have been here on a few occasions for lunch. It really is such a beautiful spot and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and fresh. The prices are reasonable and the interior is very welcoming. We looked at the evening menu and all sounds delicious so we are looking forward to trying that.

We came across this when looking for somewhere decent to have coffee. It looked very modern and clean, with a "proper" coffee machine. Our latte's were very good and the range of food was very broad. Breakfasts for other guests looked delicious and well presented, not just thrown on a plate. Service and price was what we would expect for... More

We stayed for a night as a weekend away and were very impressed with the way the hotel is presented - it has a quality feel about it. We stayed in the Lyme Bay suit which was very tastefully decorated and most comfortable. There are a couple of things for you to be aware of but that should not deter... More

We were given a Groupon Voucher for a meal for 2 as a present at Christmas. When we arrived there was only one other table occupied, although as the evening progressed, more people arrived to dine. The service was very good but a little overpowering in our opinion. We were asked too many times if everything was OK - which... More

We bought a groupon for a meal at the bistro. When we arrived we were a bit confused as it is a coffee shop. It doesnt actually look appealing, so we actually started to head for Georgie Mays, but it was closed so we headed back and thought we may as well go in! The feel of the place isnt... More

We had a Groupon Voucher for a meal for 2 and I'm so glad I bought it. We travelled from Exmouth but it was worth the drive. The service was attentive without being overpowering, the food was tasty, well cooked and just the right amount and the ambience was excellent too. It would be lovely in summer with the views...
