We enjoyed our stay here ..the room was a bit small but we knew that when booking...had a nice meal there and good breakfast. Only tiny niggle was the breakfast timing was short as was check out for 10:00 made us feel like getting up fed and out was rushed and is something the management might review.

We recently had a four night stay at this wonderful hotel, staying in the Cliff Tops Suite. The room was light, airy and very spacious. Beautifully furnished , with a large bathroom with separate bath and shower it left nothing to be desired. The views across the bay from the room were lovely and the standard of cleanliness throughout the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights early May and hotel was lovely and the staff very helpful, especially Marion and Angelika. No parking on site but the pay and display in Princes Street behind the hotel charges about £2.20 from 6pm to 10am. This was not a problem. Yesterday 12 June we were in Torquay for the day and had an... More

We enjoyed three relaxing nights at this hotel during May. The main downer is the lack of on site parking, however even during the May half term we never struggled to park I the neighbouring roads. Babbacombe itself is a quiet area without much to do, except a walk along the cliff. We found nearby Torquay a massive disappointment however... More

Fantastic spot, beautiful bay, spotless well-designed hotel. Had an evening meal and breakfast which were both superb. Walked down into Torquay and took the bus back. Walked down to beach and took the cliff rail back-- great break. Parking looks like it may be a pain but we found it really easy. Roof terrace was an oasis.

Beautiful hotel. The hotel is decorated to a very high standard with great attention to detail. Great sea view room, could not fault in anyway. Breakfast was delicious. Staff very friendly. 5 star hotel. This hotel really stands out from the rest.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We listen very carefully to what our guests have to say and have added a fruit plate to our breakfast buffet. We are sorry your towel rail produced alot of heat but there is a switch just outside the ensuite where you can turn it off. Hopefully you... More

A fantastivc hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Fantastic views in a lovely location. Breakfast was amazing, better than some of the 5* London Hotels I have stayed in. Will most certainly be back.

We have been here twice now and can really recommend. The first time we had luxury high tea which I have to say was the best I've had in the bay and such a treat. 2nd was for a family meal, Babbacombe is such a lovely setting and views to die for. We sampled mushroom soup, crab cakes, lamb shank,... More

My wife and I booked this charming little hotel very last minute and were stunned when we arrived!

We stayed last weekend as a family group , having 3 rooms, all of which were beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The staff were all professional but really friendly and the breakfast choices and quality were excellent. We would certainly stay again when coming to Torbay and thought it was very good value for money. A most enjoyable weekend break!
