We've just returned home from a couple of nights at the Albaston. Took a punt on this hotel having read other reviews, and definitely chose the right place. The owners are a warm and friendly couple, and also the lady serving breakfast is a gem. We were really impressed with the standard of accommodation. We stayed in the smallest room,... More

We have just spent two nights at The Albaston and we stayed in the Beachcomber room. It was decorated so tastefully and the en suite was clean & roomy. The view from the room was lovely overlooking Torquay and the bay. The breakfast was the best we have had since being in the UK and our hosts were delightful with... More

We stayed at this one-of-a-kind on Saturday , for only one night , wish we stayed longer . Everything about this place was great . The quirky decor alone was worth the stay . Kevin and Julie the owners are lovely people . One word to sum up this place FANTASTIC.

Stayed one night. Our hosts were most welcoming. The room was beautiful and clean and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Nice garden area. Free parking. Location is a fifteen minute walk from Torquay in one direction and Babbacombe in the other.

We stayed at the hotel bank holiday weekend in the Beachcomber room. It was great with large ensuite, comfy bed and fab view over town and coast. Hotel is very clean and individual and Kevin and Julie are very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast choice is excellent. Overall a winner!

Returned to The Albaston for first break this year. Kevin and Julie have really worked hard transforming the place since here last. All the rooms have been transformed to a high standard. We stayed in the Observatory which gives a great view across town to the sea. Stuck our noses into The Beachcomber room which has also been upgraded. Can't... More

Having stayed at the Albaston several times when under previous ownership and wanting accomodation in Torquay overnight I went onto their website and was interested at the changes that had been made. I booked online at short notice and didn't really have particulary high expectations. Immediately we arrived we were greeted in a welcoming and friendly manner, including from the... More

Thank you to new owners Kevin and Julie for a wonderful couple of nights. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made very welcome. It was clean, well set out and decorated with lots of little extras making a pleasant stay. They're currently modernising and improving the place but this was unobtrusive and did not impact on our stay... More
