Room clean and comfy and first room we stayed in that gave more than enough coffee/tea and milk. Room was on a main road but wasn't as noisy as expected. Breakfast was amazing, great selection of cereals and fresh fruit plus all quality ingredients cooked perfectly. Service was outstanding and nothing too much trouble, felt like a treat to stay.

This is a superb guest house in an excellent location in Torquay. In brief the rooms were spacious,spotlessly clean, and very nicely decorated. Each morning we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast with a very friendly and attentive service. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners of this guest house and being dog friendly, suited our needs perfectly. Would not hesitate... More

We went to Torquay for a longer weekend in May together with my partner and my parents. When we arrived we were greeted by the nicest people and immediately we felt welcomed. They automatically gave us rooms right next to each other on the first floor. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well maintained. Although we had rooms facing the... More

As regular visitors to Torquay we can hand on heart honestly say we would never consider staying anywhere else but at The Norwood. Well located for everything the Bay offers, this guest house provides hospitality second to none. Tom, Veronica, Mary and Freddie (resident dog and celebrity of the house!) are extremely welcoming and friendly, and are always willing to... More

Picked the Norwood because the original place we were supposed to stay at was not dog friendly. We were so glad we chose to stay at the Norwood. Such a friendly welcome and the owners were so obliging - nothing was too much trouble. There was a huge range of food available for breakfast and the full English was one... More

We stayed at the Norwood for 4 nights with our puppy 'Ted' and had an amazing time. We had a limited budget so wasn't expecting much but we were so impressed that we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Torquay again. We were made to feel so welcome and were always greeted with a smile so we felt really at home.... More

Fabulous welcome given when we arrived. Room really comfortable and spotlessly clean as was the hotel in general. Excellent choice of breakfast, which was delicious. The location is great for all the local attractions and the hotel is very quiet at night. Parking was not a problem as there were spaces just behind the hotel. Would definitely stay again.
