Just returned from 3 nights in Torquay, staying at the Palms Hotel. The Palms is ideally situated just a short walk from the harbour. This comfortable hotel is run by Judith and Graham, who do everything to ensure you enjoy your stay. We have stayed in this area many times and have to say, the Palms provides the best breakfast...

We stayed for 7 nights. A warm welcome awaits you to a spotlessly clean and comfortable B&B that even has a small fridge in the room. There is a lovely selection of foods for breakfast. The offer of local knowledge from our hostess helped to plan our day and any requests or problems were dealt with promptly without fuss. The... More

Ideal location for harbour and sights. Own parking area which is a bonus. Really friendly owners always willing to help and advise on places to visit. Plenty of choice for breakfast even when faced with a vegetarian! ! Room spotless and comfy. Really enjoyed our visit and looking to book again for next year. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here for one night. Lovely 4 poster room, shower room a bit small but all small hotels in Torbay suffer from this as they used to be just rooms and had to be altered to ensuite. The main problem is that you have to be very fit to stay here. First the climb up from the harbour, then the... More

Chose this B&B on the strength of good reviews on here, and we weren't disappointed. Lovely, friendly owners greeted us, and showed us to our room. Room size was good, with a lovely view (not a sea view, sadly, but still delightful), with plenty of pillows, and a nice comfortable bed. All very clean and tidy. Excellent strong shower, just...

This was our second stay here and it was just as lovely as the first! Every room comes with its own teddy bear, and are clean and tidy. The breakfast provided includes cereal, tea, coffee, yoghurt and cooked breakfast, and Graham and Judith are wonderful hosts. Thank you!

Sam and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Torquay and the experience was enhanced by our stay at this lovely hotel. Judith and Graham are very friendly and welcoming, we felt very 'at home' while away which is great. Nice clean room, great breakfast and very close to all the attractions in town. We'll be back. Thanks
