I stayed at the Charterhouse with family for the weekend. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I suffer from Celiac and the kitchen were excellent and providing plenty of food for my condition. The rooms were very tidy and very clean. A lovely bed and breakfast that I would recommend to anyone.

As soon as we arrived Marion and Les made us feel at home straight away. Our room was the best that we have stayed in. Breakfast will never be the same again!! We can't wait to go back again. PAUL and Jane English

A fantastic week at the Charterhouse. Marion and Les are very friendly and welcoming and are always about to help if needed. They were brilliant with my little girl and always had time for a chat. The rooms were fantastic and extremely comfortable and clean. The breakfast is also fantastic with lots of variety especially Les's home made bread.

This was very very good. First off, we got in not in the best of places as we had just walked back from our car which had gotten a flat tire, but Les was very welcoming as he helped us out and gave us a ride back to the car. They were both very welcoming and nice hosts which gave... More

If home was like The Charterhouse in Torquay then there would be no need to go away. Not only was the Riviera room a delight with double aspect views over the trees to the sea, a most comfortable bed, and splendid en-suite that could shame the Hilton. If that wasn't enough, the mornings brought a a buffet style breakfast with... More

Excellent B&B with extremely welcoming hosts Marion & Les. Located on Cockington Lane just a 2 minute stroll from the sea front. As others have reviewed, a great breakfast with Les' home made bread. We'll certainly be back next time we're in the area. Thoroughly recommended.

We picked this place by "guest ratings" as everyone had given it such a wonderful accolade ....and they weren't wrong. This is by far the friendliest B&B we have ever stayed in, and we've been around the block a few times. After a warm welcome from Marion and Les, we were offered tea and biscuits in the sitting room where... More
