My husband and I stayed here last month and had a fabulous visit to beautiful babbacombe. The staff greeted us with smiles and felt welcome from that first contact. Even a busy bar and many dinning, we were well looked after in a friendly atmosphere. The food was really tasty and the dinning area felt quite cosy in the evening.... More

We stayed in The Sloop for two nights. Very nice and comfortable with spacious bathroom, room and a bonus indoor balcony to observe the superb sea view. They don't serve breakfast or have wi-fi, however this is reflected in the price which we found more than reasonable, for a very nice cooked breakfast, we went to Angels located next door... More

The accomodation was clean and bright I have stayed in 4* hotels that were not as good as The Bucaneer. Steve and Marion the owers made us feel at home and very welcome. We had food while we were there and it... More

We cannot recommend this wonderful place enough. The owners, Steve and Marion, and their staff were very friendly, and couldn't do enough to help. The room is light, airy, spacious and with a really spectacular view over the bay, which we enjoyed every morning while eating breakfast. The food, when we ate in the pub, was very good, and the...

so we found the Buccaneer after searching for the bank holiday weekend as a last minute decision to visit Torquay and the B&B we were looking to stay at was fully booked, and we thought that the price for the rooms looked too good to be true, The experience did not disappoint. Upon arriving in Babbacombe we found the carpark... More

We where do I start, we only found out about this fantastic little place by accident, as I was looking at all the B&B`s on Babbacomb Downs, which is where we had chosen to stay, however, they were all booked up so I carried on looking on google map and just noticed the pub which I found very quaint and...

We stayed two nights in The Sloop room. Big comfortable bed spotlessly clean with beautiful views across the bay. The food in the pub was 1st class and hosts Steve and Marion were very welcoming.There's a lovely atmosphere in The Buccaneer and will be visiting again.

My husband and I stayed at The Buccaneer Inn for six nights as a last minute booking and we loved everything about it! We booked the spacious, beautifully decorated Sloop room which boasts stunning panoramic views over Lyme Bay from the seating area. The double bed was comfortable, there is a good sized en-suite shower room, also in the room... More

We stayed the buccaneer for a 3 night stay, we initially thought we had paid for b&b but this was not the case we found when we checked in on arrival. The sloop room we stayed in was lovely with an ocean front view of babbacombe beach. We had tea/coffee making facilities with a small fridge and microwave, however these... More

Buccaneermanagement, Owner at The Buccaneer Inn, responded to this review

Dear Simone R, thanks for confirming how beautiful the room and view is and complementing the staff friendliness. Regarding your other comments it seems that unfortunately you did not read the website correctly when making your booking, as it very clearly states that breakfast is not included in the price. This makes the rooms at the Buccaneer substantially cheaper than... More

We were very fortunate to come across this hotel because our visit wasn't planned! We managed to find this hotel which is absolutely beautiful in every way. The people that run it are lovely and really make you feel at home, the food, service and breakfast was also fantastic. The room was beautiful and the view from the room is... More
