Excellent B&B, lovely rooms, spotlessly clean, friendly welcome and service from Kathy and Ashley. Breakfast perfect. Best hotel we have stayed in, visited twice and will be back. Fab location just a short walk to the harbour. Fully recommend 10/10

Just spent two nights in this great little b&b. It's run by a lovely couple (Ashley & Kathy) who really do make you feel welcome. The whole place was very clean and as the title states the breakfast was wonderful, plenty of choice and good quality ingredients. Ideally placed right by the Harbour and various tourist attractions. We stayed in... More

My hubby & I stayed at Ravenswood for 4 nights and could not fault the hotel. We had a great welcome from Ashley and Kathy and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. There's parking at the rear (free) and we never used the car until we were ready to come home. Ravenswood is in a great... More

Welcome was efficient and easy. Room (for 3) was great with a separate room including TV and wash basin. Main double bedroom had an ensuite shower room. Everything in the 'hotel' was spotlessly clean and the manager & his wife were lovely-nothing was too much trouble, day or night. Breakfast was brilliant and served in a lovely sunny room. My...

Easy to find, plenty of free parking. Genuine, friendly, helpful owners. Perfectly presented., clean and tidy family room for us to stay in. Delicious breakfast tailored to our needs/requests. Family room was a little hot but a fan was provided.

I have just returned from my third delightful visit to Ravenswood. I said in 2012 that Kathy & Ashley would make a success of Ravenswood & they have proved me right. They put a great deal of effort into making my stay truly fabulous & wonderful. I am looking forward to my next stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ashley and Kathy welcome you to the Ravenswood Hotel, centrally located only 400 metres from Torquay harbour and town centre. We are a B&B hotel, offering clean, good value, non-smoking accommodation, plus an excellent breakfast, served in the dining room, with views over Torwood Gardens. The location of the Ravenswood Hotel is very central, being adjacent to Torquay Museum and on the Agatha Christie Mile. A short walk of 400 metres takes you to the harbour, with its boats, restaurants, shops and Pavilion, or to the central shopping area in Fleet Street and Torquay's nightlife and theatres. Also within a 400 metre radius are over 30 pubs, cafes and restaurants, so you will be spoilt for choice when selecting something to eat. Torquay's blue flag award beaches are but a short walk away, and for the energetic, the south west coast path is a great place to walk and take in the scenery. ... more   less
