Me and my partner decided to get away for the bank holiday and stayed at this hotel for two nights. This hotel is one of the nicest I have ever stayed in.. Offering an amazing view of the bay, gorgeous food and excellent service! The hotel has recently been refurbished with every room finished to a very high standard. The... 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

Without doubt, the best café in Torquay – such a pleasant addition to Babbacombe! Exceeds expectations... really setting the standard – staff, menu, venue, everything. Tasty burger in a brioche, homemade coleslaw, veggie options, all spot on. Thanks to whoever is behind this.

We chose to book a last minute trip with our two young children to babbacombe last week and this hotel was recommended to us by a neighbouring hotel who were fully booked (what a stroke of luck as it would take an awful lot to beat our experience at the babbacombe bay hotel!) We spoke to roy and explained we... More

turned up one afternoon looking for a room, and the hotel luckily enough was empty! We were offered a choice of rooms, and all were stunning. The staff were more than helpful and the room we chose was one with the steps to the roof terrace, stunning. The massive bed was incredibly comfortable and although the bathroom didn't actually have... More

Someone on the internet has copied this hotel's website and is saying it's closed. We found out quite the opposite. Roy could not have been more welcoming, and though the weather wasn't great we had a fantastic time. The rooms really are as lovely as they look on the [right] website and the views are second to none. An awful... More

We turned up on the doorstep at 8 pm at night on 20th July 2012 and were welcomed warmly by Roy. He gave us the choice of two lovely rooms and we opted for a beautiful large room with a sea view - with a shower room to die for. Well equipped with a basket of fluffy white towels. Very... More

Stayed here from 7-9 July and this is a little gem right on the cliff top with fabulous views. Ok it's more of a luxury B&B than a hotel as it doesn't have a bar or a restaurant at the moment but the breakfast was great and Roy and his team are very welcoming. Nothing is rushed and you can't... More

My sister and I stayed here for four nights 24 to 29th june. Roy the owner was very welcoming. We stayed in the balcony room which would be good as a family room as it had a king sized bed and a single bed, Its a lovely light room with a big bathroom and shower. The room also has a... More

We chose this hotel based on the pictures on its website, location and its views and the fact that most of the reviews are good. Roy the owner made us a most welcome cup of tea on arrival. The room was lovely as were the views – cleanliness was questionable, the top of the wardrobe was thickly covered with dust!... More
