We chose this hotel as a last minute break having no idea really what to expect. What a lovely surprise we got. When we arrived we were met at the door by the owner Vicki, a very welcoming and friendly lady who then escorted us up to our room. This was a bright nice sized room which was immaculately clean...

My husband and I booked this guest house to take my mother for her birthday, the experience started with the booking by telephone which was done in a very friendly manner giving me all the information I needed, On arrival although I had asked about stairs, as my mother finds these difficult it was a little steeper than expected, but...

Spent 6 nights here in a single room while visiting family. The room was cozy and comfortable with an en-suite that had plenty of hot water and there was a good selection of breakfast choices to come down to in a morning. The sea front was about 5 to 10 minute walk away with Torre Abbey and gardens in-between which... More

A warm welcome from Vicki and Steve await you at Melba House. Although new to the business they are doing a professional job-we felt very much "at home" with a very comfortable room and a lovely comfy bed. As you would expect a great breakfast with plenty of choice. We wish them all the best in their first full season... More

We spent 2 nights here at the end of February, when we attended a conference at the nearby Riviera centre. We wanted a B&B within walking distance of the venue and had pre-booked a different establishment via an agency several weeks in advance. However, when we arrived there, we found that it was actually closed for the winter season, but... More

Had a really lovely break here, tea and cake on arrival, warm and friendly owners, nice, clean room - even a bit of sunshine. Been to Torquay a few times now and this B&B's location is great for everything - beach, station, Riviera Centre etc.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A friendly, welcoming non smoking bed and breakfast hotel with private car park and all rooms en-suite. We are one of the best located hotels in Torquay, only 350 yards from sea front, and 250 yards from the Riviera conference centre. The railway station is about 10 minutes level walk away. The hotel overlooks a park, where cricket and rugby can be watched from our terrace. The harbour and town are also just a short stroll away, where you will find the many restaurants and bars Torquay has to offer. ... more   less
