Amazing experience! Friendly owners who gave us a very warm welcome. They made us feel comfortable and cared for; ensuring we got the most out of our stay! We had a beautiful room (riviera room) with a sea view, the bathroom was very spacious with mood lighting as well as normal lighting. Everything was in top condition and we lacked... More

Lovely place with great service. They provide the best breakfast in the southern UK, using all local ingredients. The black pudding was especially good. It has a beautiful English garden, and is a 20 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of downtown Torquay. I definitely recommend staying at this great B and B

We couldn't have asked for more friendly or helpful hosts. Its clear that Marion and Les love welcoming guests to The Charterhouse and provide an excellent service, above and beyond what we expected. Excellent location, reasonable walking distance from Torquay and we loved being close to the village of Cockington, which has so much to offer.

My Mum amd I stayed for two nights on the 11 & 12 April. The rooms were lovely and immaculately clean. The breakfast was prepared by Les & Marion, there was so much to choose from, I had a cooked breakfast which was perfectly cooked and delicious! The bread, jams, marmalade and chutneys are homemade by Les, yummy! We will... More

Have just spent two days at Marion and Les' B and B in Torquay. What a wonderful place to stay. A 5 star Hotel could not beat this. Absoulutely delicious breakfast with home made bread, jams, marmalades and chutneys. Nothing was too much trouble and it was home from home.

We stayed for 2 nights on 28th and 29th March 2014, this being our 1st visit to the Charterhouse. We've stayed in a few good hotels in Torquay and usually rely on the reviews on Tripadvisor to make our choice. In this instance, the previous hotel which we were happy with had no rooms available so based on the reviews... More

We stayed here from Sunday 13th to Thursday 17th April 2014. We initially booked this short break on the basis of other reviews and we couldn't have chosen a better place - we certainly won't be paying more and staying in a hotel in future. We stayed in one of the garden rooms with the missus, myself, 2 monsters aged... More

Very friendly hosts, excellent breakfast with homemade marmalade and bread, big and light room, great location for a holiday with many sights to see (outstanding: Greenway House). I can only recommend Torquay and the Charterhouse.

Charming location, delightful hosts (Marion and Les), fabulous, spacious bedroom with the most wonderful bath with cool lighting and the best breakfast you will ever ever taste! Les makes his own bread, jams and chutney and the full English is to die for! Five star service - I cannot recommend this B&B enough. Don't stay anywhere else in Torquay. Marion... More

We have just returned from our first trip to Devon where we stayed with Marion and Les. Marion was an amazing host - our room was so comfortable and relaxing, the breakfasts were enormous and so tasty (homemade bread, jams and marmalades, delicious eggs and full English breakfasts) and the recommendations we got for things to do and places to...
