Everything about The Richwood and it's hosts Veronica and Saida was faultless. We enjoyed the swimming pool, spa, games room, comfy beds, clean rooms, modern shower room and the food - in particular the extremely high quality evening meals available. We have never stayed in a B & B with so many facilities on offer before and plan to stay... More

A very friendly atmosprere. Very welcoming staff. I felt like one of the family. Could have done with a slightly larger room . Bigger rooms are available. The food is good and served with a smile. The hot tub was fantastic and swimming pool pleasant but a little cold. Thank you very much Sadia and Veronica. We will be returning... More

Saida and Veronica make a wonderful team. I recently visited with my wife and 5 year old son. Our room was large and well equipped, the beds offered a very comfy retreat after a long day building sandcastles. Breakfast was ace, outdoor pool(if you have the weather) and the games room all added to the enjoyment of our stay. Most... More

visited this hotel with my parents and younger sister for four nights, the hotel was clean, each with their own bathroom, the owners were friendly and welcoming, the price paid included a basic breakfast (cereal, toast, juice) which was lovely. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and good value for money.

Lovely rooms that are well presented and clean. Outstanding customer service- very helpful and friendly. The swimming pool is lovely and suitable for adults and children alike. The location is very good with access to local amenities and walking distance to the beach. The breakfast is good with a wide variety of options. Cannot wait to return :)

I'm proud to say that that's the third summer in a row I've booked only at The RICHWOOD! (10 Nights) And this time I got my best friend with me.. Both the Owners are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. As the rooms are very clean, and its location makes it easy to go almost anywhere in Torquay! I'm really disappointed... More

We spent three nights here the first weekend in June 2015 as a short break away. On arrival we were a little concerned as the frontage was a little small and car parking limited. Although you can park easily 6 or 7 vehicles in the off road parking, and there is plenty of roadside parking. The interior is lovingly maintained... More

Thank you Steve for your review. It is good to hear someone appreciating our care of this old house and reflecting what we also feel - that we have kept the atmosphere as it should be. We also pride ourselves on our breakfast and are happy that you enjoyed them. Looking forward to your next visit! More
