We had 3 brilliant nights at Arran Lodge and were very well looked after, at the same time we had our privacy. The room was superb with it's own little courtyard. Jo is an excellent hostess with nothing too much to ask and if you're stuck of things to do, she will tell you were all the good places are... More

We were visiting some friends in Torquay last minute, and Jo went out of her way to accommodate us, and at a very competitive rate. The entire place was just beautifully decorated, contemporary style, almost like a boutique hotel. Spotlessly clean, and the bathroom.. wow. Like a showroom. I didn't want to get out of the gorgeous massive shower! Breakfast... More

The Arran Lodge offers everything you need for a few nights stay. My room(2) was a well set double room. Had some lovely in fashion wallpaper. Good modern bathroom, with decent shower and some extras in the way of sealed ear buds etc... The look is old school mixed with new which goes very well. The only part I didn't... More

On arrival at the guest house we were greeted warmly by Jo, and immediately shown our room, which was lovely, spacious spotlessly clean and inviting. Jo made us a pot of tea and cakes which she brought up to our balcony. Throughout our stay Jo made us fantastic breakfasts, and catered to my vegetarian needs. The breakfasts were gorgeous, always...

Would recommend Arran Lodge to everyone. Wonderful hosts, who go out of their way to ensure their guests have everything they could possibly need. Joanne provided us with lots of information regarding places to visit and things to see. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Just spent a lovely long weekend at The Arran Lodge, the room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfast was proper old English with local products cooked to a tee! Mick & Joanne the hosts had us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. I would recomend this B&B for anyone wanting to stay in Torquay.
