I had read the very favourable reviews on trip advisor before I booked, and was not disappointed. I was extremely pleased with my stay and would definitely recommend this delightful hotel to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break in the lovely seaside town of Torquay. The location is superb, being close to the main railway station, and is... More

This hotel is ideally positioned in Torquay within easy walking distance of the seafront, the town centre and Torre Abbey. It successfully combines Victorian charm with modern luxury. My room was large , with a pleasant view over a rugby pitch, a well stocked bathroom, a TV, plus tea and coffee making facilities in a seating area. There was even... More

On arrival at the Melba House Hotel, I was immediately impressed by the beautifully furnised hotel in the perfect location, close to Railway Station and with easy walking distance to the town and harbour. The hotel has a front terrace overlooking a local Rugby ground, so I could imagine very pleasant times sitting on the terrace, with a glass of... More

We visited Torquay for a short break and booked this B & B at very short notice. Vicky was extremely helpful when booking and was there to welcome us along with Steve. Although our room was small it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. It would have been nice... More

My partner and I stayed at the Melba hotel in August, we were delighted that the owners had a small blow-up bed with children's bedding set for our daughter to stay in the room with us, something we often have problems with when there are 3 of us, big thank you for that!

We visited Torquay during August bank holiday and as you would expect Steve and Vicki had a full house. We were very impressed that even during this busy period our hosts did not deviate from providing the personal touch which makes you feel very comfortable and at home. The cleanliness of the room was immaculate and it included a good... More

The couple who ran this house were very friendly, the breakfasts were adequate, However the car parking was horrendous, it was situated on a 1 in 2 gradient and was very awkward to park your car, if you managed to park you had to get up this steep slope to the hotel, then navigate 19 stairs to your room.

We are delighted that many of our guests regularly praise our breakfasts and are therefore reassured that they are far from merely “adequate”. We also cannot help having stairs – as do the majority of other Bed and Breakfast establishments. The car park is on a slope, but a 1 in 2 gradient is incorrect. We have had a number... More
