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

We have just enjoyed 2 nights in this superb guest house. Our friends had been once before and were keen to share what they considered to be quite a find on the short stay list. All the rooms are named after exotic locations and are decorated accordingly - we lolled about in Morocco whilst our friends were transported to the... More

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre and harnour front. Hosts Karen & Stuart could not have bern nicer or more helpful, really love their work and made you feel as they want your business. Hotel is extremely clean with well stocked rooms and beds probably made by Carlsberg as was too comfortable for words. Excellent breakfast... More

I cannot rate this b&b highly enough. Returned again for another weekend and didnt even contemplate booking somewhere else, in fact wanted to come to Torquay the month before but the Hillcroft was booked up so didnt bother going. For anyone wanting a lovely place to stay with look no further

From the moment we pulled up to the time we left nothing was to much trouble at The Hillcroft. Stuart welcomed us to his wonderful hotel with hot drinks, fresh homemade cake and a wealth of knowledge about the area and the best places to eat. The room we stayed in was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything... More

We stayed in the Provence suite which covers the whole top floor and has its own entrance hall; it felt more like being in your own private holiday home than a hotel and was light, roomy and quiet. The living room was comfortable, cool on hot days and had nice views of the town. The bedroom had a romantic feel... More
