On arrival Martin and Elaine gave us tea and fresh home made cake. We stayed here one night as we were surfing early next day. They were great hosts throughout our stay. The room was lovely, spacious, clean and filled with condiments if you needed them. Breakfast was fresh, home cooked and most of all tasty. We can't wait to... More

Stayed here for the weekend. The owners couldn't do enough for us, friendly, welcoming and great hosts. We usually stay in larger hotels but this weekend had been a real eye opener and would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a nice break away in a good quiet but central location. All we would say... More

We liked the look of this unusual Boutique hotel and the fact it had themed rooms. We booked it as a mini honeymoon and asked on the booking form if something a bit special could be included for us. On arrival we were not dissapointed as the owners had left a wedding card in our room and a bottle of... More

Such a welcoming change to go to a unique and individual B&B. The room was inviting and extremely comfortable - slept like a dream! Breakfasts were great and catered for all tastes. Close by and a short walk to all facilities but away from the crowds. Received such a warm welcome and helpful information the whole of the stay and... More

Stayed four nights at The Hillcroft . We arrived later than expected due to traffic but were greeted like family not paying guests . After a welcoming drink in the bar with Martyn and Elaine we were shown to our room , which was outstanding . We were given the opportunity to see nearly all the rooms available . All... More

Stopped here for a couple nights and we were not disappointed, our rooms were comfortable and well decorated, the owners were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very nice and my mum especially liked the baked tomatoes! Def recommend this place to everyone! Looking forward to a return visit in the future!

We spent one night at this B&B. The room was pleasantly furnished and the proprietors very welcoming. There was an extensive breakfast menu and the food arrived promptly. All in all The Hillcroft is good value and a reasonable place to stay for a short trip to Torquay.

Had a lovely last minute stay in Torquay this weekend. Booked the penthouse at The Hillcroft as the prices were so reasonable compared to the larger hotels. The Hillcroft is a lovely quirky boutique hotel and the owners were so welcoming and helpful. A perfect location with a very short walk to town. Breakfast was amazing too. We will certainly... More
