We were lucky enough to pick the warmest weekend of the year to stay and also to have chosen the only suite with a balcony overlooking the downs and the sea with fabulous views. All the rooms are beautifully appointed and nothing has been spared for your comfort. We had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent with both the... More

I had the pleasure to stay here in beautiful weather, the only downside to this was the seagulls woke me early because I had my window open! Flood shower, comfy beds, new nicely decorated room, decent tv and importantly free and easy wifi. All that a lone traveller needs. The views from Babbacombe are terrific. My breakfast the next morning... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and, although there were still some teething problems, our visit was very enjoyable. The hotel was clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have a top sheet on the bed as the duvets are extremely thick and too heavy for the warmer months.

We stayed in mid June, and would never return or recommend this Hotel to anyone. The Hotel has recently changed ownership, and I would suggest that its previous good reviews are a reflection of its earlier owners and nor of the new management. Good Points: The hotel is well furnished, generally clean, and the breakfast is good. Bad Points: The... More

It’s so disappointing to read this, particularly amongst all the other lovely feedback we have received from recent guests. For balance, we would like to address a couple of points: - We are sorry the fire alarm went off; unfortunately it’s just one of those things that we have no control over. It is the only time it has happened... More

We are regulars to Torquay and I came across this hotel online, the website looked good and ticked all the boxes for our requirements. This hotel did not disappoint me, it was furnished to a very high standard, the superking bed was very comfortable and the babbacombe bay breakfast keeps you going all day. The staff were very polite and... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced boutique hotel with views of the sea and this lovely hotel ticked all those boxes. The staff were all friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay fantastic. The room (room 4) was lovely with a comfy kingsize bed and a good size ensuite with large walk in shower. When we stayed... More

This is a great boutique hotel. We hadn't book for our trip to Babbacombe & were only staying one night and when we entered the reception we were amazed at the quality of the furnishing & finish of this hotel. The receptionist was very friendly & offered to show us the room before we booked - our only criteria that... More
