We were visiting Torquay to see family for a couple of nights and booked the Hillcroft. Martyn and Elaine were very welcoming and we had the "Tuscany" room which was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The hotel was in a fantastic position for us and the breakfasts were superb. All in all a very good experience and we... More

The room (Tuscany) was comfortable, the bed had good quality linen and the best pillows ever (in fact I checked the labels as want to buy some!), plenty of electric points, hanging space and mirrors. I woke early due to light in the room, not everyone would be bothered by this but if blackout curtains were added it would be... More

Elaine and Martin are perfect hosts!! Tea and cake on arrival and fantastic selection of fruit at breakfast plus all the usual cooked options. We decided on a mini break the night before and were lucky enough to get a room for four days. The room was clean and comfortable and Martin even helped us with our WYFI.We love Torque... More

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

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
