The room was newly refurbished... More

It is modern, clean, spacious, excellent food, and has everything you need in your room and more. Jo... 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

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.
