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.

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

Breakfast is excellent with good choices, the fruit bowl was lovely and fresh would recommend the omelette. A bit of a haven away from the crazy bustle of Torquay. One downside is the roadworks coming... More
