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

Spent the weekend here, had to return to see what Kevin & Julie had done since the last time. More rooms have been upgraded and plans for the garden and dining room shortly to start, if as successful as the rest of the hotel will be exceptional. Usual warm greeting and fantastic breakfast just can't fault. Looking forward to visiting... More

Kevin, Julie & family are the nicest hosts you could wish for. You will never find a cleaner hotel. The bedroom was very classy & comfortable. The breakfasts are top notch both in terms of choice and quality.

Kevin & Julie are the best hosts I have ever come across, nothing was too much trouble. The accomadation was done to a very high spec and the cleanliness was excellent, the breakfast is amazing with home made marmalade and jams, they even bake their own bread which is to die for. This family run B&B is the best one... More

We stayed here at the end of April. New owners, Julie and Kevin treated us to a fantastic weekend,telling us best walks and places to eat. They are in the middle of refurbishment but nothing was too much trouble, and work going on was unobtrusive. Kevin's full English is the business and the homemade jams and marmalade are highly recommended.... More

We spent a week at the Albaston 3rd - 11th April 2014. Julie & Kevin are the new owners and they could not do enough for us, even picking us up from the bus station at 8.30pm, very welcome after a long flight from Australia. Our room was very comfortable including the bed, also spotlessly clean. Lovely cooked English breakfasts... More
