I stayed here with my dad for a one night stay as we saw a concert at the princess theatre, and the location was fab we couldnt of asked for a better location as it was very close to the seafront just as we wanted! The b&b itself is very dated and a bit run down, the rooms are somewhat... More

We spend 2 nights at The Norwood. Veronica couldn't do enough for us, she was extremely nice and very welcoming. Mary cooked the breakfasts each morning and they were superb. We had an issue when some very inconsiderate drunk guests woke us up one morning at 2.40am by trying to get into our room, banging and shouting etc. They were... More

Just returned from a family break at the Norwood. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had never stayed at a pet friendly guest house before. It was absolutely great, comfortable, spotless accommodation, friendly hosts and a gorgeous breakfast which set us up for the day. Veronica could not do enough for us and went out of her way...

After a few years now of visiting Torquay, we can highly recommend The Norwood to anyone who wants to visit the Riviera. The Norwood is the ONLY place we would ever want to stay, Tom, Veronica and Mary are the most welcoming and accomodating hosts you could ever wish to meet. Going above and beyond to make sure your stay... More

Relied on the TripAdvisor reviews for this one. Easy Late online booking. Hostess very nice and welcoming. Doesn't look much from outside, but quite pleasant in. Decor tidy neo-Victoriana and a bit dark in the entrance hall, but the room (8) was lovely with evening sun. Very clean with even complementary toiletries. Comprehensive welcome book. Couldn't ask for anything more... More

We turned up late, & were greeted with the offer of a tea or coffee. Very polite. However, we had read there was car parking, but spaces were limited to less spaces than rooms so although alternative arrangements were made with a local guest house, it was a bit further than hoped, as we're disabled. The room was cosy, so... More

Veronica, Tom and Mary are such friendly helpful hosts who provide spotlessly clean rooms and an amazing breakfasts every morning. Nothing is too much trouble and we will certainly not stay anywhere else when we come back to Torquay. Well done Team Norwood you made our holiday very special.

Arriving on Friday 6th March for a two night stay we were offered a pot of tea on arrival complete with a mini mars bar each, a little thing but much appreciated. Breakfast was great and as many people have mentioned before we got a sausage to take to the room for our dog as well. This is a guest... More
