A lovely and comfortable hotel. It was a very clean and friendly place to stay. Highly recommended. I was very impressed with the standard of the accommodation. I would definitely go back there again.

We've just returned from another weekend at the Southbourne Villa. We arrived late due to dreadful weather conditions, but David and Edna gave us a lovely welcome and showed us to our room, which as expected was very nice. The room was clean and spotless the bed looked inviting. The next morning after a good night’s sleep we choose our... More

We stayed here again after such a positive experience a year ago. Once again David and Edna went out of their way to make us feel at home, and their local knowledge, which they are delighted to share, makes a visit to this area such a pleasure. Impossible to fault the quality of the accommodation, nor the service.

David greeted us on arrival with a pot of coffee.(lovely touch). My room was beautiful just as you would see on Downton Abbey. The breakfasts were amazing nothing was too much trouble, the decor was very English and everything clean & crisp. Amazing service in an amazing place, we would go back & recommend to anyone anytime. Thank you David... More

Only stayed for one night but David and Edna made us feel very welcome. Breakfast can't be missed, our room was very comfortable and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Walk down to the marina in about 15/20 mins don't eat at the marina restaurant though you will be disappointed. Thank you very much.

The Southbourne Villa is a lovely hotel in Torquay. We regularly stay there as we have family in the locality. The owners are so accommodating.The small but important touches such as bottles of water and a jug of fresh milk in a small fridge instead of those horrid little containers of long life stuff are very welcome. I always phone... More

I have just returned from a four night visit, which I had arranged for myself and my elderly parents. On arrival we were met by David and offered tea/coffee and biscuits and the warm and personal little touches continued from there. Both rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean with fridges (with a jug of fresh milk), kettles, flat screen tv's,... More
