Truly lovely hotel. We received a very warm welcome from the owners (in fact I got a text from them in the morning giving us directions to the hotel to ease our journey) and our room exceeded expectations. The décor was fresh and it was exceedingly clean. Most comfy hotel bed I've ever slept in and the tastiest breakfast! Highly... More

Really lovely b&b. We stayed in Tuscany, beautiful themed room, comfortable bed, clean and smelt nice. Helpful, friendly and welcoming hosts. Fabulous choice of breakfast foods, loved the fresh fruit salad and fresh coffee. Short walk from town, but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet.

We arrived early, this wasn't a problem and we were greeted with homemade cakes and smiles and made to feel very welcome. We stayed in the Moroccan room, which was decorated beautifully in a Moroccan theme, it was very clean and comfortable. It was a good sized room and the bed was one of the best nights sleep we've ever... More

Close enough to be able to walk to seafront and harbour so plenty of choice for bars and restaurants. We stayed... More

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

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
