Very enjoyable stay. Quiet. Sheets and towels were very clean, breakfast cannot be faulted there was a wide choice. Mother and daughter were very attentive. We would go again I don't no what the proper price is as we had a Groupon but I probably would not pay any more as we upgraded as well. Central for everywhere in Torquay.

Stayed for two nights in a superior room and were extremely impressed with Tusker Lodge. It is well positioned near shops, restaurants and the marina, and the owners do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. Will definitely be returning again as we had such a great time and were so well looked after.

The people running Tusker Lodge Ave gone above and beyond to provide me with a fresh packed lunch every morning. Even to the point of sourcing and small fridge to keep my food cold. This taken into consideration with a very good deal on the room, has made my stay in Torquay a good one. I've also had reserved parking... More

Having just had laser eye surgery in Exeter, I arrived early and in some discomfort. The people who run the b&b were great. They checked us in early and gave us tea and biscuits. Good location, good room and friendly people.

I was made to feel very welcome and whilst the room was basic it was very comfortable and I got a really good sleep in a very comfortable bed. The breakfast in the morning was just what you want if you are looking for good homely B&B. I would definitely stay again and recommend it.
