Staying in Torquay on business as a lone female. I received a very warm welcome from Martin and Elaine. A lovely cup of tea (in a tea pot!) and a friendly chat. Martin explained local restaurants I could try and gave me a map to ensure I didn't get lost. The bedroom was nice and clean with a good tea... More

Greated by warm staff who provided complementary tea & coffee once shown to the wonderful suite. The India suit was much more than we imagined, the bed some comfy as well as impressive & the lounge area was perfect place to relax after seeing family in torquay. Easy free parking & a great location to both town & sea/harbour made... More

We stayed here over valentines day. We stayed in the India suite. The owners had gone to extra effort to make the room romantic with rose petals and chocolates which was lovely. The bed was huge and there was an adjoining sitting room. It was beautifully decorated and the bed was super comfortable. The down side was the ensuite shower... More

The Hillcroft is very easy to find from the website or verbal directions. Car parking is slick but the owners, Martyn and Elaine Flint, take great care over it, even spraying cars of departing guests with de-icer! We were warmly greeted and offered light refreshment in the bar. We felt very welcome, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The... More

I prefer smaller boutique hotels, just like the Hillcroft. The service is professional & courteous the proprietors make you feel really welcome & everything is explained upon check in. We stayed in the Provence suite which we were really impressed with. The decor is amazing and it exceeded our expectations. If your looking to treat a loved one to a... More

We stayed for a weekend last month and the room was very comfortable and clean. Amazing furniture and décor across the hotel. Slept very well as it is located in a quiet area but walking distance from town and the sea side.

Great stay Great Bed and Breakfast My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Tuscany room which was lovely apart from the shower room which was on the small side, but then the house is 150 years old. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order with a full choice of fruit, cereals etc. Martyn and Elaine were very welcoming and... More

The description of this B&B was certainly no exaggeration. Each themed room was beautifully decorated. We stayed in the India suite and had 3 restful nights on a luxurious 4 poster bed. Our friendly hosts Martyn and Elaine had only just taken over running The Hillcroft but you would never have known. Breakfast was delicious, including fresh fruit salad with... More

Just spent 2 nights here in the Tuscany room. I agree with the previous review about the bathroom. It could do with being modernised. Room was clean. Bed ok but not the best. Nice hospitality tray. Breakfast nice. Owners friendly and helpful.( moving their own car so we could park) easy walk into Torquay. A quiet area.

This is a boutique hotel a moderate walk (uphill) from the seafront. We booked this as it has good reviews. Our room was clean & relatively well appointed, although it didn't feel much like Tuscany. The most unusual thing was having the sink in the main room as there was not room for it in the en-suite as this was... More
