From the photos we had seen we expected a well located, pleasant and comfortable stay in Torquay. And it turned out to be even better. The staff was nice and serviceminded, the rooms splended and the breakfast good and individually suited. The location was nice, just a couple of minutes walk to the harbour and the city with all the... More

We have stayed here a number of times. So many times I can't put a number on it. But the fact we return so many times is an indication of how pleased we are with this accommodation. Both Adam and Grant go the extra mile to give a warm welcome to their guests. Rooms can only be described as exceptionally... More

First time here at The Somerville, so close to the town centre that convenience is top notch. the roomhad all the facilities required and to a very high standard. So much going on with the décor that im sure you would notice something new every time you stayed there. The staff were so helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble... More

This is our third time at The Somerville. We love it. Everything is top class from the rooms to the breakfasts and the hosts. The location is perfect with many top class restaurants close by. We will definitely be returning.

The Somerville was all we had hoped for and more.... Quality shone out in everything from comfortable beds, bed linen, towels, bath products to the locally sourced ingredients for breakfast. Breakfast was excellent,all beautifully cooked to order. Eggs Benedict delicious! We were made to feel very welcome by Adam and Grant and their staff. We hope to return.

I booked a junior suite for two nights to celebrate my wife’s birthday. When we arrived we were checked into the “Court yard” suite. This is a small but beautifully presented suite with a little private court yard with lovely tubs and flowers, and even some gold fish! This was ideal for both of us as smoking was allowed in...

Highly recommend this B & B. The accommodation was lovely, the breakfast was excellent and its location (with free parking) was within walking distance of the town centre and marina. We could not think of any way in which it could have been better. Great value for money and the staff were charming.
