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

We stayed here for a few days & felt instantly made to feel welcome by Martin & Elaine. The rooms are beautiful, very clean & the beds were so comfortable! Breakfast was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. I would strongly recommend this hotel because it is a little gem!

We stayed for two nights and were made to feel very welcome by Karen and Stuart. The room was lovely and very clean. Breakfast was delicious too! We would certainly recommend this guest house and are likely to return some time soon.

My wife and I stayed at the Hillcroft at the end of October for the weekend. (Football game) Great guest house. I have always kept away from Guest houses as I prefer the privacy of hotels but this has changed my view. Very friendly and helpful couple who ran it. Very clean and fabulous breakfast. I will be returning next... More

Visited Torquay for Newton Abbot races which was only 9 miles away ( 1 stop on the rain). The Hillcroft was just perfect in every way. Great value for money for the time of year . We stayed 4 nights and had a gorgeous freshly cooked breakfast every morning (with lots of choice). Our room was lovely with a great... More
