We spent three very comfortable and enjoyable nights here. The place was very clean and Graham and Judith are delightful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and the place had a very homely feel about it. We are already booking again for next year. Tina & Andy, London

Stayed for 2 nights in room 6. From the moment I arrived both proprietors were extremely welcoming and friendly, even helped to park my car! The hotel is located conveniently for torquay and its shops / restaurants yet also in walking distance of the more tranquil villages of Babbacombe and St. Marychurch. There is also a beautiful area of parkland... More

Highly recommend this hotel based on our stay this weekend past.
