We stayed for a week but wished it could have been more. Marion and Les are fantastic hosts who make you feel like old friends from the moment you arrive. Breakfast is amazing with homemade breads and jams it's a perfect start to any day. Only a stones throw from the sea and a short walk into town it's a... More

Friendly greeting on arrival with tea and cake after a long drive from London. Room was large and comfortable. Very clean and comfy bed. Breakfast expansive and delicious with more than adequate supplies for second helpings. Location and off street parking excellent. Marion extremely helpful with general information and recommendations as well as booking restaurant.

My Girlfriend and I have just had a 3 night stay at The Charterhouse, the room we stayed in was clean and tidy, the shower piping hot! Breakfast is massive, have as much as you want, and the breads that Les makes are great! Thanks Marion for a great stay, was definitely worth the long trip from London!

To be honest we are stuck for words to describe what simply superb service and accommodation the Charterhouse offers! From the moment we arrived to the time we checked out Marion couldn't have been more helpful. Spotlessly clean throughout with a fab room (Riviera). The attention to detail....for instance the chocolate bars in the room and the homemade bread and... More

My title says it all, we stayed at the Charterhouse for a 4 night break and found it as good as the reviews if not better. From arrival to leaving nothing was too much trouble, from arranging tables for diner, calling taxis or advice on local area. The room was well appointed, clean and very comfortable, breakfast was superb, with... More

My wife and I stayed at the charter house for the second time last week and we were just as impressed this time around. Torquay is a great place to stay and the charter house is a top choice as a base to explore. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is awesome. Marion and Les can... More

We enjoyed a lovely 5 night break at The Charterhouse. Marion and Les were great hosts and made us feel thoroughly welcome. Breakfast was fantastic and our family room was very comfortable and spacious. Our children enjoyed playing in the gardens with Toffee and Phoebe! They also loved the pool! Brilliant location for exploring Torquay and beyond!

We sort of knew what to expect after all the excellent reviews but we were made so welcome as soon as we arrived. Room 3 on the ground floor is large and airy with a kingsize bed. Little touches like a welcome bar of chocolate on the bed is an indication of the attention to detail. Marion managed to get... More

Marion and Les are fantastic and make you feel extremely welcome and comfortable. I am a vegetarian and I was provided with vegi sausages for breakfast which is a rarity. They can't do enough to be be helpful and the location is perfect 10 mins walk from Torquay harbour and Cockington. The room we stayed in (15) was great clean... More
